My dogs love ice cream, but sometimes I don’t feel like getting them in the car and going to Bruster’s for dog sundaes. Frosty Paws are expensive (like $3.99 for 4!) so I only buy then when I have a coupon and/or they’re on sale. But then I thought, how hard can it be to make some? So I googled around and found this recipe and decided to try it out (with just a few changes).
So here we go:
You need a 32 oz carton of plain yogurt, 2-3 T peanut butter (I use natural – it’s just peanuts and salt), bananas, and some Dixie cups. There’s only one banana in the picture, but I used two. I didn’t add the honey the recipe calls for, because that just seems like extra sugar that dogs don’t need.
Anyway. Throw that all in a food processor and mix it up.
Then ladle it into Dixie cups.
Now stick it in the freezer! Once they’re frozen, you can toss them all in a big ziploc bag for storage.
Now let’s do a cost analysis:
2 bananas: $.20
Plain yogurt: $2.09
2 T PB: $.14
14 Dixie Cups: $.23
Cost per cup? 19 cents!
Easy. Cheap. Loved by dogs everywhere (or by my dogs at least). What more could you ask for?
