So far this Summer we have been very lucky to have some wonderful weather! I love getting home from work and spending the evenings in the garden. We have probably eaten just as many meals outside on the patio this year as we have inside!
Our little fur baby, Bella, loves when she gets to come out with us and run around the yard. There’s so many things for her to explore that she never wants to come back inside. I can’t believe she will be a year old in just a couple weeks! Well, needless to say, we still spoil Bella like crazy. With it being so hot outside she gets just a little too warm running around. So, I decided to make her some fun new treats to help cool her down. She absolutely loves the puppy pops! It takes her a good 10 minutes to eat one, which is a long time for her to stay in one spot unless she’s sleeping!
These are super easy to make and they keep well in the freezer. You can split it up into however many cups you’d like according to the size of your furry friend. I split it into 6 and that’s a good size for Bella.
- 1 Cup Plain Yogurt
- 1 Banana, broken into pieces
- 1 T Peanut Butter
- 3 Oz. Paper Cups
- Rawhide Sticks
- Combine all ingredients into a food processor; blend until smooth.
- Fill paper cups as full as desired.
- Place rawhide sticks into cups.
- Remove paper before giving to dog.
It really is that simple! It takes only a few minutes to make them. Since these were so fast to make, I decided to make her a second type of frozen treat as well. Believe it or not, these are even easier to make! All you need is low sodium broth and mini Milkbones. Just pour a can of broth into an ice cube tray, put a Milkbone into each one and freeze! Super fast and easy. Bella also gives it 4 paws up!
Just make sure to give these treats to your dog outside since they get messy as they melt. Hope your dog enjoys them as much as Bella does!
