“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!
