Yummy Doggie Ice Cream Recipes For Hot Summer Days

As the heat waves hit the country we are all looking for ways to stay cool. It's important for our dogs to stay cool this Summer too! So why not give your dog a delicious cooling treat? We’ve gathered some easy-to-make ice cream recipes below! Your dog will surely enjoy something besides their regular dog food for a change.

Before giving your dog any of our ice cream treats make sure they can digest and tolerate dairy products. The lactose sugar can upset your dog’s stomach or cause itchy skin. A dog with a problem digesting dairy may have a lactose intolerance so check with your veterinarian just to be safe!

Peanut Butter & Nanner Cool Treats

This treat is easy to make and calls for ingredients that you may already have in your kitchen. A benefit to these treats is the added benefits of the bananas! Not only are bananas packed with potassium and vitamin C, but they are also good sources of vitamin B6, manganese, and biotin!

Here are the ingredients you'll need:

  • 3-4 ripe bananas

  • 32 ounces plain low-fat yogurt

  • 1 cup Xylitol-free peanut butter

You will also need 5 to 6 ice cube trays and a large freezer bag.

Steps to making the treats:

  1. Throw all the ingredients into a food processor or blender and blend until mixed.

  2. Pour mixture into ice cube trays. If you don’t want to use that many trays, pour some of the mix into a large zip-top freezer bag. Break up the frozen mix into pieces later.

  3. Place the trays or bag into the freezer.

  4. Freeze for a few hours (depending on what kind of texture you’d like) and serve.

Treats will keep in the freezer for 6 months!

Pupper Pumpkin Ice Cream

Another yummy treat for your pup but this time our recipe features pumpkin puree! Pumpkin puree contains essential micronutrients and fiber that make it a very nutritious treat for dogs.

This recipe makes 2 cups!

Here are the ingredients you'll need:

  • 1 cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)

  • 1 cup plain low-fat yogurt

  • dash of cinnamon

  • Splash of maple syrup

Steps to making the treats:

  1. Spoon pumpkin into an ice cube tray.

  2. Put the ice cube tray in the freezer and freeze for four hours.

  3. Put pumpkin, cinnamon, and maple syrup into a food processor or blender.

  4. Add half the yogurt and blend.

  5. Add the remaining yogurt or water and blend until you obtain the consistency you want.

  6. Serve to your patient pup!
