You can teach an old dog new tricks with the right kind of doggie treats.Cynthia Lewis
Last week our big puppy Miller turned 5! I can’t believe it has been five years since I picked up that the little white ball from a farm in Florence, SC. He has been my shadow ever since…to the point that your girl can’t even go to the bathroom without privacy!
As is becoming a tradition around here, it is time for our newest homemade birthday dog treats! Since we baked for their birthdays last year with
How to make these Frozen Peanut Butter & Banana Yogurt Dog Treats:
To begin, take 1/2 of a banana and place it into a small bowl. Using a fork, mash the banana until it is smooth.
Next, add 1 container (5.3 oz) of banana greek yogurt into the bowl.
Mix to two ingredients together until it is a smooth consistency.
Next, in a separate bowl, get your peanut butter together. You can either use 1/2 cup PB2 or 1/2 cup of regular peanut butter.
(If you are using PB2, add more water than usual & if you are using peanut butter, microwave it so it is more “runny”)
**Optional: Add peanut butter and banana yogurt mixtures into a squeeze bottle so you can easily add them to the silicone molds
If you don’t have a squeeze bottle, no problem, just use a small spoon!
Grab your silicone dog treat mold & add 1/2 peanut butter & 1/2 banana yogurt.
When your molds are completely filled, place your yogurt dog treats into the freezer. Allow them to harden (for minimum 4 hours).
When your treats are frozen, remove them from their molds & serve them to your pups!
Store your Frozen Yogurt Dog Treats in the freezer in an airtight container for up to 1 month!
Dog birthdays are becoming quite the tradition around our house & I couldn’t love it more. I hope your dogs like them as much as ours do!
Happy 5th Birthday Miller! You are our favorite white bear, Charlie’s best friend & I couldn’t love anymore!
- 2/3 cup banana greek yogurt (5.3 oz)
- 1/2 cup peanut butter (or PB2)
- 1/2 banana
- silicon dog treat molds
Into a bowl, add 1/2 of a banana. Using a fork, mash the banana until it is smooth.
Once your mashed banana is ready, add in 1 container of Banana Greek Yogurt. Mix the yogurt and banana together and set aside.
If using regular peanut butter, microwave it for a few seconds until it is melted (you want a runny PB consistency). If using PB2, just add a little more water than normal to make it runny.
Grab your silicon dog treat mold & using either a small spoon or squeeze bottle, add an even layer of peanut butter to each mold.
Next, (again with a small spoon or squeeze bottle), add a layer of your banana/yogurt mixture to the mold.
Place your yogurt dog treats into the freezer & allow them to set for 4 hours.
When your yogurt dog treats are ready, remove them from the silicone molds & serve.
Place your yogurt dog treats into am airtight container & keep in freezer for up to 1 week.
