Frozen Puppy Treats

With summer coming up (if it ever stops raining)- I was very happy to find this healthy, cold treat for the Pups! This recipe is very similar to a product that I had previously purchased in the store - but at a greatly reduced cost and higher nutrition!

Honestly, I was most interested in trying this recipe out because I accidentally bought plain yogurt and it just wasn't the flavor (or flavor-less) for me! The pups were thrilled with my accident!

1 cup peanut butter (natural is good- even for dogs)
32 oz plain low fat yogurt

  • Put peanut butter in the microwave for a few seconds until it is melted. (Try 30 seconds and stir.)
  • Combine with yogurt.
  • Scoop into cupcake papers (I have small dogs so I used a silicone mini-cupcake pan for smaller serving sizes.)
  • Put into freezer. (About 4 hours.)
  • Once cups are frozen pop them out (if using silicone) and put in freezer bag for storage.
You can serve them straight out of the freezer - or let them soften at room temp for a few girls like to dig right in.

So simple and puppy approved!

My doggies would love me forever if I made these for them. Unfortunately I don't seem to make time to cook for myself, let alone for my animals!

What a cute recipe! Unfortunately I don't think my cats would go for this but for those with dogs this is a super cute summer idea.
