With one more day of summer upon us, we are celebrating with some Frozen Yogurt Popsicles for Dogs! And when I say “we”, well, I mean my Cavalier King Charles Spaniel bozos.
These Frozen Yogurt Popsicles for Dogs aka Pupsicles were featured with a couple of other dog friendly treats in my “Gone to the Dogs” monthly inRegister column, Aimee’s Pretty Palate.
(hop over to the inRegister link for a video of my pups enjoying their pops)
These Frozen Yogurt Pupsicles have been just the ticket for cooling down a dog who insists on being outside with you … while wearing a fur coat.
- 2 cups plain yogurt (non-fat if needed)
- 2 Tbsp. smooth peanut butter
- 1 Tbsp. honey
- 1 ripe banana, mashed
- Bone-shaped cookies for handles (optional)
Place all ingredients except cookies into a blender and mix until completely smooth. Divide mixture into individual nut cups or a popsicle tray. Note: Small nut cups can be found locally at Party Time; they look similar to mini cupcake holders but are a bit sturdier.
If you are using bone handles, add to center of nut cups before freezing. Freeze until firm. Pop out of tray (you’ll need a knife) or tear away nut cup liner, and serve your pup by using the bone as your popsicle stick. Use within 1 week.
Makes 8-10 mini pops.
The inserted bone-shaped dog treat serves as a handle for you to politely serve your canine companion as they lick away the frozen goodness.
I prefer using the nuts cups found at the party store (Party Time for anyone local reading) because they’re a bit sturdier than mini cupcake liners, but those will work just as well. And if you don’t have any of those on hand, simply freeze in an ice cube tray!
