My dogs love to hang out in the backyard, no matter how hot it is outside. So to help keep my dog chillin' outdoors in the sun all summer, I made them "pup-sicles!" 

Using an ice cube tray as the mold for the frozen treats, the "ice cream" portion of the pupsicle is made from just two ingredients: plain Greek yogurt and natural peanut butter.

You can fill the pupsicles with your dogs favorite treats and then use a medium-length bone for the "stick" to the pupsicle. 

Just like giving a kid a popsicle in the summer, there pupsicles can make a mess if left with your dog unattended - so just be sure to serve the pupsicles outside or on a surface you won't mind having to clean!

Luna LOVES all food she's offered and wanted to gobble down the pupsicle in one bite. This is where the milk bone "stick" comes in handy: I can hold it for her so she doesn't get brain freeze! Theo is a much more dainty eater and carefully licked the ice cream down to the bone and ate it like a gentleman.

However your fur baby eats their pupsicle, these frozen treats are the perfect doggy dessert on a hot summer afternoon.

Prep Time: 5 minutes + 6-8 hours freezing

Makes ~16 pupsicles

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 cup plain Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup peanut butter
  • 16 medium length milk bones
  • ~16 small pieces your pet's favorite snack treat or kibble
  • oil cooking spray

Here's How:

  1. In a small bowl, beat together the peanut butter and Greek yogurt until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
  2. Lightly spray an ice cube tray with oil based cooking spray. Place a small piece of training treats or kibble into each opening in the ice cube tray.
  3. Fill the ice cube tray with the peanut butter mixture. Press the mixture into the cubes with the back of your spoon. Use a paper towel to smooth out the top of the peanut butter.
  4. Press a milk bone into the center of each cube, about half way down. Freeze until solid, about 6-8 hours.
  5. Leave the pupsicles out for about 5 minutes prior to serving. "Crack" the ice cube track as you would to remove ice and then pull out the individual 'pupsicles.'
  6. Serve your dog the pupsicle outside or on an easy-to-clean surface. Hold the pupsicle by the 'stick' - or give them the whole pupsicle - and let your dog lick away. Good dog!
