Summer Treat Recipe

Summer Treat for your Four-Legged Friend!

We are in the middle of summer now and that means it is hot hot hot!! Like today, it is humid out there so our pets should only be outside for a limited time.Here is an awesome treat recipe to help keep your pup cool during the summer months

Peanut Butter Popsicle

Ingredients:

1 cup peanut butter, if possible unsalted and not sweetened (Check the peanut butter label to make sure it does not have any kind of xylitol, this is toxic to dogs.)

Half of a mashed ripe banana

Directions:

If needed add water

Mix the mashed banana and the peanut butter together in a mixing bowl.

Add the water as needed. (The water and banana aren’t essential, but they help with freezing consistency.)

Line a cookie sheet with wax paper, or use the toys that are KONG styled where you can add the treat into the cavity of the toy.

Spoon the mixture onto the tray or stuff it into the toys. Freeze the tray or toys for several hours or overnight.

Your dog is going to be extra happy after this yummy treat!

Helpful advice:

Pet popsicles can be made out of all kinds of things your pups eat normally, so test out to see what your dog likes the most.

The frozen Kong-style toys make a great cool-down treat for when you will be away for a few hours. Kooper and Dee’s favorite KONG treat is Peanut Butter mixed with banana frozen.

Try treats frozen in water, watered down wet food and your favorite frozen veggies.

As always, remember to avoid certain foods that can be harmful to your pets. Here is a list of some of the foods your pets should avoid.

Wishing everyone and their pets an awesome rest of the summer!

About Courtney Boyle-Anderson

After graduating from college with a psychology degree in 2011, I was excited to start my career. I searched long and hard for a job within my field but quickly found out I needed a masters to pursue many of the jobs that were available. Within a few months I began working for a benefits enrollment company and soon moved to a small accounting firm. While the people were fantastic, I soon realized the cubicle life wasn't for me.
