Doggie Ice Cream Treats

Our puppies deserve special treats  especially when they are well-behaved  or when they have had some medical issues. My puppy nephew, Simba, who is 8 months old just got “nipped” if you know what I mean and I wanted to take him something yummy since he was a very good boy. No unwanted offspring for him!

Simba enjoying one of the banana/peanut butter/yogurt ice cream treats I made just for him. He is so gentle and just stands there and lets you hold the cup and licks and licks until it is all gone. Not a touch of aggressiveness, only calm and pure joy. Oh – Aunt Juju – thank you so much for my “get well soon” treats!

There are a number of recipes you can make and the dogs just love them. Unless of course  they are an aggressive eater and want to gobble it down all at once. Simba is not… The first three I made according to Simba are just doggie delicious. The fourth made with pumpkin puree (one way of getting your pet some veggies) is a favorite as well.

I used small bathroom cups and put a dog bone treat in the middle. The 4 oz. cups have lids which are very convenient and  I found those through Etsy.

I am sharing these yummy ice cream treats with  all the good doggies and of course Fiesta Friday.

Doggie Ice Cream Treats

Banana, Peanut Butter and Yogurt Ice Cream Cups:

  • 18 oz. plain lowfat yogurt (I used non-fat Greek)
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter (reduced fat)
  • 4 oz. jar banana baby food (I have not bought baby food in years and years)
  • 1 tbsp. honey (I did not add)
  • 4 oz. cups with lids or bathroom cups (stick a dog bone treat in them)
  • small dog bone treats (to stick inside the cups if desired)

Combine all ingredients, put in your containers and freeze.

Fresh Strawberry Ice Cream Treats:

  • fresh strawberries, mashed to bring out the juices
  • lowfat plain vanilla yogurt
  • 4 oz. cups with lids or bathroom cups (stick a dog bone treat in them)

Combine enough mashed strawberries (maybe 6 large berries) to add to two cups of yogurt. Combine and freeze in containers.

Fresh Banana/Peanut Butter Yogurt:

  • 2 bananas, mashed
  • 16 oz. plain, low-fat yogurt
  • 1/2 cup reduced fat peanut butter

Mix well and place in containers.

Pumpkin Flavored Ice Cream:

  • 29 oz. can 100% pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup reduced fat peanut butter
  • 1 cup plain, non-fat yogurt

Combine above ingredients, spoon into cups and freeze.

Ice Cream Toppings:

  • spoonful of unsweetened applesauce
  • dribbles of honey
  • sprinkle of rice krispies
  • how about some pieces of crispy bacon

Asleep in my favorite chair after my delicious treat. Yes, I know the chair is too small but it wasn’t when I was just a little puppy.

  1. Thanks – I’m not sure what mix Simba is but is just the nicest dog. My sister took him to Puppy School and he gets to interact with a lot of puppies his age. Most definitely make these treats for your “friend”.

  2. Oh my goodness, I have been waiting for this post. We buy expensive special doggie ice cream treats (very occasionally) at the pet store and they are outrageously expensive! You have made my day! And, what a sweet looking puppy.

  3. Simba is such a beautiful pup. We felt guilty when we had our pups nipped, too. These frozen treats are so easy to make. I made some ice cream sandwiches for our with homemade oatmeal cookies. Can’t wait to try your ice cream recipes!
