DIY – DOGGIE ICE CREAM!

“If you pick up a starving dog and make him prosperous he will not bite you. This is the principal difference between a dog and man.”
— Mark Twain

With the weather getting warmer, I can never turn down a nice big bowl of ice cream.  Unfortunately for me, neither can my dog.  I officially flunked out of DOG 101 – “How to say no to your dog”, and for awhile found myself investing in doggy ice cream.  If you have a dog, I’m sure you’ve seen it in the freezer isle — dog ice cream more expensive than the finest human ice cream, and at half the size!  I knew there had to be a better (and cheaper!) way.

Those who know me know that I do not know how to cook.  Anything.  At all.  However, last summer I decided to play around with various doggy ice cream recipies.  I mixed and matched flavor after flavor; but in the end, the one my dog prefered the most was the simpliest!  And I PROMISE you that if I can make it, you can too.

So, without further adieu, here are step-by-step instructions to the easiest DIY doggy ice cream ever – Oreo’s Banana Peanut Butter Swirl!

Here’s what you’re gonna need:

  • 32oz vanilla yogurt
  • 2 bananas
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • a dash of honey

 

How to make:

Combine all ingredients in a blender

Blend until smooth.

Pour into containers of your choice and freeze.  

I chose to pour half into an ice cube tray and half into dixie cups to create different sized ice cream treats!

Serve to your pup and give yourself a pat on the back for a job well done!
