We have 2 black labs who love peanut butter so I make these for them quite frequently during the warmer months. They know that when we open the freezer there are treats inside for them!
Is Peanut Butter good for Dogs?
You’ll notice that this recipe calls for a smooth peanut butter. I recommend choosing a natural peanut butter and stay away from peanut butter containing xylitol.
Make sure that the peanut butter does not include chocolate either as neither xylitol and chocolate are not good for dogs.
Peanut butter can be a good source of protein and healthy fat for your pups. Just don’t give it all the time!
Here are some that are known to be good for dogs:
WHY BANANAS ARE GOOD FOR DOGS
Mack and Keira LOVE bananas!! In fact, veterinarians recommend these fruits to be served to your pups instead of fatty, salty treats because they contain good amounts of potassium, vitamin B6 and vitamin C.
You’ll want to feed in moderation, though, because these do contain sugar.
- 1 banana
- 2 cups plain Greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter
- 2 Tablespoons honey
- 4 Dixie cups
- 4 medium size dog biscuits
- Place your banana in a mixing bowl and mash together with two forks.
- Add the yogurt, peanut butter, and honey. Mix well until combined.
- Transfer mixture into the Dixie cups, filling 3/4 of the way. Place a dog biscuit into the middle of each cup and freeze overnight.
- To serve, cut a slit at the lid with a scissors and peel away the Dixie cup from the pup pop.
The "additional time" of 12 hours is the average time that I leave these in the freezer to become solid.
