Easy Peanut Butter and Banana Popsicles for Dogs
Summer is here and it's hot! Spoil your pup with a cool treat made from fresh, healthy, dog-friendly ingredients. It's a classic and simple recipe: Peanut butter and Banana Popsicles. You can make these in a popsicle mold and use long, skinny dog treats as the stick, or you can use fun ice cube trays for a cute shaped, small treat. After making them you can store the popsicles in the mold you used, or remove them from the mold and put them in a freezer-safe ziploc bag. This recipe will make a large amount, perfect for providing tasty popsicles for your canine companion all summer long.
1 Ripe Peeled Banana
Big Dollop of Creamy Peanut Butter (check the ingredients of the peanut butter to make sure there is no sugar or xylitol)
32 Ounces of Plain Low-Fat Yogurt
Ground Up Dog Treats or Milk Bones (optional)
In a large mixing bowl, mash up the banana into the consistency
of baby food.
Add the creamy peanut butter and mix until smooth.
Add the plain low-fat yogurt and mix until all ingredients are well incorporated.
Grab your popsicle mold, or ice cube tray, and sprinkle some of the ground up dog treats into each popsicle crevice.
Fill each mold with yogurt mixture, but be careful not to overfill. Using a butter knife or mixing spatula, remove excess mixture off the top.
Place the filled molds in freezer and try to forget about them for at least four hours.
Serve your amazingly patient canine family.
Your pup will LOVE these on hot days, so make sure to store them in a freezer safe bag.
This is my favorite little taste tester
When making this recipe, I put the extra filling into a small cupcake mold. We're going to use it for "ice cream" cake for my dog's August birthday.
