Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream for Dogs
PEANUT BUTTER BANANA ICE CREAM FOR DOGS
- 2 cup plain yogurt
- 2 ripe bananas
- 3 Tbsp. peanut butter
- 12 mini dog biscuits
- Slice bananas and place in a blender with peanut butter and yogurt. Blend until smooth and creamy.
- Line a muffin pan with liners and fill each cup about 2/3 full. Place a mini biscuit in the center of each one and freeze until solid (About 3 hours).
When frozen solid, remove the pan from freezer and let sit on the counter for about 5 minutes. This allows the cups to loosen from the pan and makes the liners easy to remove from the ice cream for storing.
Can dogs eat peanut butter?
Yes, and they like it! But not all peanut butters are created equal. Most are safe for pups, but watch out for any that use the sugar substitute, Xylitol (sometimes labeled “xyz”), it is fatal for dogs and can be found in a few brands of specialty nut butters. Here is an article that lists those brands who use xylitol. I haven’t ever seen it listed as an ingredient in the brands that I use, but it’s always a good idea to double check before using it to make ice cream for dogs or any kind of dog treat.
How should I store this ice cream?
Place all ice cream cups into a gallon sized ziplock bag and keep in the freezer.
Can I use frozen bananas in this recipe?
Absolutely! If you have bananas that are going to go bad, peel them and put them in the freezer. Then pull them out another day for bread, a smoothie, or ice cream for dogs. Let them come to room temperature first unless you are using them in a smoothie.
What is the best yogurt for dogs?
According to 1-800-PetMeds, plain Greek yogurt is the best choice for dogs because it contains less lactose. The dog treats in the photos are made with plain yogurt, and the ones in the video are made with plain Greek yogurt. We’ve used both and both are Toby-approved.
