Doggy Ice Cream

Holy Poop!

It's been scorching hot here over the past couple of weeks, so staying cool has been almost impossible. What's that? The best thing to do on a hot day is get ice cream? I agree! But what if you're covered in fur and sweat through your feet? Still, the answer is ice cream!

Last week on our way home from an adventure, Boyfriend and I stopped off at a local pet food store to get some 'doggy ice crem'. Oz and Holly loved it, but it was pretty expensive stuff. Since I'm  super cheap  a creative person, I decided to make my own ice cream for the puppies.

Here's what you need:


Mash the banana into smithereens and then mix in the yogurt and peanut butter. It's important to use plain yogurt because you don't want any added sugars or aspartame. For similar reasons use natural peanut butter. If you want to play with flavours, add strawberries, blueberries or raspberries instead of peanut butter! Now put your mush into a clean ice cube tray and freeze until ready to serve!

Once it's frozen, serve a cube or two (based on the dogs size) and wait to become their favorite person!

Always remember that it's just as hard (if not harder) for your pets to stay cool on hot days, so make sure that there's lots of shade and fresh, clean water available to them. Never leave your pet in a car, even with the windows rolled down. It's an oven in there!

If you like this recipe, you might like this!

Hugs and poops,
