You like frozen yogurt, right? So do dogs. Let's whip up a frozen treat for them to nibble on while we enjoy our last official long, summer weekend:



Frozen Yogurt Pupsicles

Add a container of plain, organic yogurt to your blender or food processor. Now comes the fun part. Choose from your refrigerator’s available supply to save money and use up leftovers: 
  • small fruit bites (absolutely no grapes or raisins!) and a drop of honey. My dogs like bananas and berries best. Melons are often a big hit with dogs.
  • grated cheese, preferably low fat
  • a couple of tablespoons of organic peanut butter and a bit of honey
  • You can even try a veggie pop by tossing in broccoli or other vegetables. My dogs love veggies.

Mix briefly and pour into an ice cube tray, removing to a sealed container when frozen, to retain flavor.

Serve these yummies as an occasional treat, one or two, depending on your dog's size. Keep in mind, that they may be messy. I recommend serving them outdoors on a patio or in a newspaper lined crate. What better reason to spend a little crate time, than with a fun new frozen treat. For those pups that generally avoid the crate, you may find this is just the thing to turn it into their favorite place to laze around. 

What was your pup's favorite? Leave me a comment or drop me an email at LetsAdoptaDogPark@gmail.com. Have some ideas of your own to submit for our site's cookbook?  I'm busy putting together a prize package for recipes, photos, and even a cookbook name. 


Send them in with your pup's name and photo. He has to get credit for all his hard work as your taste-tester, right?!!
