Dog Ice Cream. A Frosty Paws copycat
Your dog is going to LOVE you for making this 3 Ingredient Dog Ice Cream!! (I’m sure your dog already loves you but you get the point 😉).
Today I’m sharing with you an OLD recipe from the blog that I’m revamping a bit with an updated recipe (took the honey out of the recipe because it wasn’t really necessary), updating the photos, AND adding a video for how to make it!
The heat index in Nashville this week is getting up above 100 degrees and for my 2 long haired pups, that’s just a bit too hot! I mean, for everyone that is a bit too hot but I imagine wearing a winter coat in the summer is not exactly fun. As a result, they don’t spend too much time outside during the worst of the heat. AND, I sneak them a few extra Dog Ice Cream treats when Stephen isn’t looking :D
Before making these, I suggest that you do a little bit of research to make sure that you are comfortable with your dogs consuming each of these 3 ingredients or maybe if there’s a special kind of yogurt you prefer. I’m happy with my dogs having all of these ingredients (just a little every once in a while) but everyone is different and has varying opinions on the matter. Okay? Let’s do this.
How to Make Ice Cream for Dogs
This is ridiculously easy! Add all three of the ingredients (banana, yogurt, and peanut butter) to a blender and blend until creamy. You can also do this in a big bowl with a hand mixer or simply by hand if you’re ready to put a little muscle into it.
The mixture is then poured into whatever mold you have on hand. I used THIS paw print mold from Amazon BUT I’ve also done this using ice cube trays and mini tupperware containers. They all work great and I promise your dogs won’t care either way. I’ll link a few other options at the bottom of the post too!
I spent a WHOLE HOUR trying to get cute photos of my dogs eating this ice cream and as a result, gave them WAY too much. AND, these are the best that I was able to get 😂😂
Oh well. You won’t hear them complaining at all.
PLEASE please let me know if you make this dog ice cream AND massive bonus points if you send me a pic on Instagram of your dog eating it 😃🐶
- 16 oz of plain yogurt
- 1 ripe bananas

- Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.
- Once all of the ingredients are blended, pour the mixture into your desired containers for freezing.

- Feed to your pups and enjoy their excitement and gratitude (I like to pretend my dogs say thank you. I know they mean it).
