Pets of all kinds love ice cream; dogs, however, seem to be the biggest fans. Many people share their ice cream with their dogs, and some even get their own bowl! While it may taste great, ice cream is not a healthy snack for dogs. There are commercial versions of dog ice cream available at the supermarket but could contain ingredients that may disagree with your pet. Why not make your pet their own healthy version?
The recipe below is tried and true with my own dog. I love giving it to him after we get back from a long hike.
Yield: 12 servings
Line each well in a muffin pan with paper muffin liners.Combine all ingredients into a bowl and stir until well mixed. Divide the mixture into the molds and fill to just below the top of the linen. You want enough space at the top so you can easily peal it off when you are ready to use it. Freeze for 3-4 hours. Once it is frozen, pop the treats out of the tin and place into a zip lock bag. Can be stored frozen for up to 6 months.
To serve, remove the paper wrapper and place in a bowl. I keep my dog in the kitchen or his crate when he gets them because he has a habit of carrying it around the house!
The possible mix-ins are endless, you can add pumpkin puree, mashed blueberries, peanut butter, or carob chips.
