I scream, you scream...

We all scream for ice cream!  I know it's -28 here in MN tonight, but I say anytime is a good time for ice cream.  The pups love it too!  One of their favorite summertime treats are Frosty Paws but they don't get them very often.  I'm not sure what is in those, but they give my girls gas that can peel paint off walls. 
 
I found a great recipe for homemade Frosty Paws that are so much better for them and they love them even more than the storre bought ones!  I did run into one problem though... I had the entire batch made up and realized I had no room in my freezer!  No worries though!  I was not exaggerating on the temperature here, so an hour on the deck (with my 2 girls in the kitchen, noses pressed up to the door watching them freeze) and in no time, Frosty Paws!
 
Now these are good enough for people to eat too but keep your paws off. These are for your favorite furry friends - and NO I am not talking about your Aunt Ethel. I usually get about 10 treats out of each batch.
 
Things You'll Need:
  • Dixie cups
  • 32 oz. Lowfat vanilla yogurt
  • 1 banana - mashed
  • Peanut Butter (1/2 cup)
  • Honey (1 tbsp.)

  • While still in the peel mash the banana with your hands. It will start to explode out of the peel but that's ok. Just put it all in a large bowl. Continue to mash with a spoon so it has a creamy consistency. Next, add the yogurt, peanut butter and honey. Stir until very smooth and creamy. Next stir until really smooth and creamy. No chunks!
  •  
  • Spoon the mixture into the little cups. Be sure to fill them to the top. You don't want Fido to feel slighted!
  •  
  • Place the cups on a cookie sheet and set in the freezer (or deck!). They usually take about 5-7 hours to freeze completely. Once they are ready let Fido enjoy! You have made your pet a healthy, delicious budget friendly treat.  My Josie kitty even had a few licks and liked it!
