Make Frosty Paws Doggie Ice Cream Right at Home!

Updated on September 21, 2014

Don't worry, it's E-A-S-Y!

Dogs love their special doggie ice cream and really wag their tails because they KNOW it's a special treat and that they darn well deserve it! So, why not make 'em some homemade doggie ice cream right in your own kitchen? Don't panic, it's super-easy and ready in no time. Plus, you can add your own special ingredients depending on what your particular pooch likes!

Yuuuuummy!

Basic Doggie Ice Cream Recipe

1 small container of plain or vanilla yogurt (175 grams/4ounces)

1 ripe banana

2 ounces (4 tablespoons) filtered water

Blend all the ingredients together and then fill up dixie cups and put a treat stick in each one (optional). Then let freeze in the freezer. See, I told you it was EASY.

Now, for those of you worried about the yogurt because it's a dairy product. Know this: yogurt has much less lactose than regular milk and the live cultures are great for your dog's digestive system. Still worried? Try goat's milk yogurt. That has even less lactose and because the milk particles are tiny it's easy for dogs to digest.

You can also add additional fruits or vegetables to make your dog more yummy flavors to try. See below for another version with peanut butter - a dog's favorite!
