Cool summer treats

Peanut Butter & Carob Frozen Yogurt Dog Treats via We Eat. Happy.

Want a great way to spoil your dog and cool them down in a pinch? Today BestBullySticks gets to share a great recipe from We Eat. Happy. Becky and her doggy gang have tested and approved this amazing recipe that will be a new summer favorite in any household. Complete with a dog’s favorite ingredient, peanut butter, and yummy carob powder, your dog will have the same satisfaction as Becky’s dogs! Check out the full recipe below!
Here is a recipe for some dog treats I made for the dogs (with a little help from Maude...). So, these wheat-free, frozen treats are intended for dogs, but there is nothing in them that is weird for a human to eat...I even tasted the batter. The dogs loved  them...right up their alley! Perfect treat for those dog-days of summer (pun absolutely intended).
Peanut Butter & Carob Frozen Yogurt DOG Treats.
(Makes a dozen)
  • 2 cups plain yogurt (your choice of fat %)
  • 1/2 cup chunky peanut butter
  • 1 TBL carob powder (CANNOT be substituted for chocolate)
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 12 small paper cups
1. Mix ingredients in a large bowl. Divide evenly into 12 cups (approx. 1/4 cup each).
2. Put into the freezer for at least 3 hours. Peel off, or pop out of, paper cup. Serve.
Bone App├ętit & Enjoy!

They sound so good I may try one myself.
Our dogs love the home made "Frosty Paws"   I normally use fruit yogurt and drained tuna, the girls will sit and lick them down to a small bit and then eat that all up.  I have seen photos of a dog treat sticking out of the frozen treat, kinda like a handle.  I think this makes it easier removal of the treat from the cup and make it easier the dog to take the treat from you and take to their secret place.
