Do the dog days of summer have your pooch panting for a cool summer treat? Try this simple recipe for Puppy-Popsicles.

  • 32 oz. plain yogurt
  • 1 ripened banana, mashed
  • 2 Tablespoons natural peanut butter
  • 2 Tablespoons honey

Add all ingredients into a blender and mix until smooth. Pour mixture into ice trays and freeze.

While any old peanut butter you have around will do, we recommend natural peanut butter available at most grocery or natural food stores because they contain less sugar than the usual stuff. Just a note, the live cultures in yogurt create lactase, an enzyme in which lactose-intolerant people (or puppies) are deficient; and aid in the digestion of casein, a milk protein. So while most dairy products aren’t good for dogs, plain yogurt is a lot gentler to the tummy.
