All “Paws” for Icy Treats!

By Rita O’Sullivan, PawlieShop pet expert and blogger

During the summer months, keep your pets cool and hydrated. One healthy strategy is to give them what they crave combined with what they need. Treat your dog with an ice-cold goodie made from delicious, nutritious ingredients. 

Try making some Icy Peanut Butter-Banana Treats for your dog! My pug Biscuit loves these, and so do most of our friends' dogs!

Start by using Pawlieshop's Puppy Dog Paw & Bone Molds to freeze or bake your own healthy, "DIY" dog treats year-round. 

Icy Peanut Butter-Banana Treats

Combine the following:

  • 1 ripe banana
  • 4 tablespoons smooth peanut butter
  • 12-oz plain yogurt

Blend ingredients in a food processor or blender until well mixed. Then spoon into a silicone-rubber mold, such as our Puppy Dog Paw & Bone Molds at Pawlieshop, and place the tray in your freezer. Freeze for at least two hours. You can store the frozen treats for around two to three weeks and they’ll still be as delicious as they were on the first day.

...and here is the bone-shaped silicone tray for baking or freezing your pet treats.

With fresh healthy ingredients that any dog loves, you’re sure to keep your pup cool, calm and collected. In many parts of the US and the world, temperatures have been trending into the 90s and higher. The icy treats are a good way to stave off thirst too; it's easy for dogs and other pets to get dehydrated while exercising outdoors on hot days.

You can also use this batter year-round, baking up a flavorful batch of dog biscuits in winter. Instead of yoghurt just add an egg, some oats and flour to the peanut butter-banana ingredients, say the cooks at  PooksPantry.com – check it out on Pinterest.
