Doggie Ice Cream

Do you hear music?  It sounds like a carnival.  It's very faint but it's getting louder.  Could it be?  Maybe?  Yes! It's the ice cream man!

When I was a kid, I used to get so excited when the ice cream man would drive his truck down our street.  All the kids would flock over to him to purchase a push up, eskimo bar, drumstick or another frosty treat.  I also have fond summer memories of making ice cream in an old fashioned hand crank machine.  Ice cream and summer go hand in hand.

You know who else loves ice cream?  Curtis, our dog.  Whenever we have ice cream he wants some too.  So, a challenge is born.  How to make a frosty treat for him.  Here's what I came up with and he LOVES it!

Doggie Ice Cream

1/4 cup natural peanut butter
8 oz plain greek yogurt
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 styrofoam egg carton


Place peanut butter, yogurt, and vanilla in a food processor and blend until smooth.
Spoon mixture into your egg carton.  Close up and freeze.   

Easy peasy!  Just pop out one of these frozen goodies when your furry friend wants/deserves a frozen treat.  If your dog is like Curtis, he will LOVE this!
