MAKE IT: Bella’s Frozen Peanut Butter and Banana Dog Treats

Bella's frozen peanut butter and banana treats

A healthier option than ice cream, these frozen peanut butter and banana dog treats are simple, use whole ingredients, and will help your furry friends to cool down during those hot summer days. Bonus – they can also double as people treats! Silicone molds make it easier to pop the treats out, but you can use any container you have on hand (I sometimes just spread the mixture in a larger container and then cut it into smaller chunks once it’s frozen). For dogs like Bella, who always are trying to sneak a little extra something, you can share these treats with them without any guilt that you are giving them something unhealthy. Bella hopes that your dogs enjoy these as much as she does!

 1 cup (8oz/120g) plain yogurt
 1/2 cup (4oz/120g) smooth peanut butter
 1 ripe banana
1. Using a small bowl and mixing spoon, mash the banana, then add in the yogurt and
peanut butter, mixing until combined.
2. Carefully spoon the mixture into your chosen container, being sure to distribute the
mixture evenly.
3. Freeze for a minimum of 5 hours, then share with your furry friends! Extras can be stored
in the freezer for up to 3 months.
