5 Easy Ice Cream Recipes You And Your Dog Can Share

I scream, you scream, we all scream for...pupsicles? One of the best ways to cool down in the summer is with a frozen treat. As hoomans we have plenty of options - popsicles, push pops, ice cream, slushies and water ice galore! But what about treats to keep our pets cool in the heat? Check out these 5 easy DIY ice creams and pupsicle recipes - delicious summer snacks for you and your pup! ***Note: WebMD lists ice cream and dairy as foods your dog shouldn’t eat. Just like humans, some dogs get upset stomachs from eating dairy. If you have a pup with a sensitive tummy, you might want to talk to your vet first. Pro Tip: Toppings Skip the sprinkles and fudge for a pup-friendly drizzle of honey, bits of crispy bacon or a spoonful of applesauce! Banana Blueberry Blend 1 cup of blueberries 1 banana 1 6oz plain yogurt 1 tsp of ground flax seed Instructions Mix all the ingredients in a blender until smooth. Distribute the mixture evenly into an empty ice tray. Keep in the freezer till frozen.
Peanut Butter Oatmeal Swirl 1 cup of organic peanut butter 2 cups of plain yogurt ¼ cup of organic rolled oats ½ cup of organic vegan carob chips 8-10 thin rawhide chews (for garnish - optional) 8-10 small paper cups Instructions In a large bowl mix the peanut butter, yogurt, oats and carob chips. Distribute the mixture evenly into the paper cups. Place a rawhide chew in the center of each cup (for the pups!) like you would for a popsicle stick. Place in the freezer for several hours or until frozen.
