A very simple recipe this time. In fact it barely deserves the name. Have you seen those frozen dog treats at the check out area of your local pet store (like Hoodies for dogs)? Well, I have and I was even foolish enough to buy them once or twice. They cost an arm or a leg (or a paw) for what is really a very simple idea. So in need of a Christmas present for my dog (the kids insisted and it was already Christmas Eve) I whipped a few of these up and stuck them in the freezer to give the pooch the next day.
Frozen Dog Treats
You will need:
3 or 4 small paper cups
1 very ripe banana
peanut butter (natural preferred)
In a bowl mash up the banana. Add a good wallop of peanut butter and a big spoonful of yogurt. Mix it all together till it’s a fairly uniform consistency (odds are your dog won’t comment on the lumps anyway). Spoon mixture into the paper cups and place in freezer. When you are ready to serve them, tear away the paper cups leaving just the frozen yumminess. I recommend serving these treats outside. If they have time to melt, they may make your floor all sticky.
And now the gratuitous basset hound pictures —
