Frozen pet treat for National Ice Cream Day

Bella loves these homemade frozen treats but only gets one every other day. You know, we have to keep it balanced and not indulge too much. We don’t know when dog ice cream first appeared, but we think it is a genius idea, especially during the summertime.

My family enjoys ice pops and ice cream, but our dogs also like a treat from time to time. I used to freeze bananas, cut in rounds, and feed them so that everyone could enjoy something sweet without indulging too much.

Until I started testing dog-friendly recipes at home discovered that blending almond butter, bananas, yogurt, and almond milk results in bite-size frozen dog treats when using ice trays.

A frozen little bite for our four-legged friends

Make this simple and easy recipe for frozen dog treats made with real ingredients. You can make this at home and share it with all the family. Dogs and humans love these ice cream bites because they are yummy, have a real banana and almond butter.

A true treat for everyone, make this fun recipe for your pet family!

  1. I have never tried ice cream with Layla that is doggy ice cream and maybe your post will push me to make some for her and see how she likes it, thanks for the great idea

  2. 5 stars
    Jack loves ice cream and when we lived in Florida we used to buy it from the supermarket, here I can’t get ready made. Back then I wasn’t as diligent about reading labels as I am now so I definitely prefer to make it myself. A couple of weeks ago I made some, he sniffed, took a lick and walked away. Perhaps this one will appeal to him, although I don’t know what French plain yogurt is. I imagine any plain will do. I’m going to give it a try!

    • Hi Hindy French style yogurt is alike Greek yogurt. Since this is for dogs it is recommended to use a high protein yogurt and both Greek and French are and when using plain it doesn’t have sugar as I am recommending not to add any sugar to and use plain high protein yogurt for this recipe. Hoping this clarifies.

    They look so cute, almost human tempting treats AND I just thought they look like human chocolates from a proper ‘chocolatier’ – so posh and top of the market!

    I know a lot of dog owners welcome easy to make dog treats and one that is perfect for the summer (when you don’t want to do anything much yourself!) has to be a win WIN for the pups!!

  4. 5 stars
    Great easy to try recipe, not only that, all the ingredients are easy to find in your local supermarket! I’ll have to give this one a try for our two dogs as we have having exceptionally warm weather here!

  5. 5 stars
    This sounds like a great recipe that both humans and their dogs can share on a hot summer day! I’m going to share this with my mom and sister so they can make it for their dogs.

    Thanks for sharing this refreshing ice cream treat, I think my dogs would like it a lot. I love the ice trays too, they’re adorable! Bella looks so cute in her little chef’s hat, love it!

  7. What a delicious simple treat and easy to make! And I had no idea July 15th was National Ice Cream day! This is a great way to help beat the summer heat.

  8. Looks like a great recipe! It’s been a long time since I gave Buffy ice cream. She really does have to watch her weight. Actually, I do, she would love to watch it go up! I like that you can freeze them and give out one a day. Also great that it includes real ingredients.
