Puppy Popsicles

Happy Hump Day, friends!

This weekend was a fabulous one as far as weather is concerned. It is the middle of August and it was finally starting to feel like summer in Mid-Michigan.... until yesterday. This weekend, it was easy to work up a sweat while doing anything outside. Lucy Lou, loves to be outside all.the.time. but when the sun is shining, her black fur is hot hot hot. 

On a hot summer day as a kid, I loved eating popsicles (who didn't?), so being the cool dog mom that I am, I decided to make Lucy some popsicles of her own.

18oz. Plain Low-Fat Yogurt
1/2 Cup Peanut Butter
1 Jar Banana Baby Food
1 Tbsp Honey
Dog Bones

Combine all ingredients, except dog bones.
Pour mixture into small paper cups. My cups were a little larger, so I only filled mine 1/3 full.
Stick one dog bone into each cup to serve as the handle.
Freeze until completely frozen. 
When ready to serve, peel away the paper cup from the popsicle.
Watch you dog drool over his/her new favorite treat.

I was able to get 8 popsicles out of the recipe. 

Also, if you have a smaller dog: my mother-in-law made these for her rat terrier, and used an ice cube tray instead of cups. You could also use smaller dog bones to stick in the ice cube tray as well.

As you can see, Lucy really loved these new treats. It only took her about 5 seconds after I was done taking pictures to bit the whole thing right off the bone.

I hope she realizes how loved and spoiled she is!

  3. How cute. I miss having a dog. My black lab passed away about 5 years ago and haven't been in a good enough living situation to get another (moving and non-pet friendly apartments). Some day I'll have another dog I can make these for. I love the idea and I'm pinning to inspire all of my dog owner friends :)

  4. Love this idea! I need to make some for my dog, I know he would love them too.
