Basic recipe from an ME dog owner: “Both my dogs get a Frosty Paws every night. I use 2 cups of plain yogurt, about a cup of water, a big spoonful of peanut butter and a big spoonful of honey. I blend it all in the blender until it’s very smooth and watery, then I pour into little cups with lids and put them in the freezer until they are frozen. They both let me know if it’s past 7:00 p.m. and they don’t have their “treat”! They love them! There are other recipes (if you google it) that add banana, but my dogs don’t like it. It’s a great treat to give them.”

32 ounces yogurt
2 T honey
2 T creamy peanut butter
1 banana

Throw all into blender and blend until smooth. Then pour into ice cube trays, small muffin pans, small paper cups and freeze.

Recipe from another owner: “I don’t really have a “recipe”, but I put about 2 cups water and 2 cups plain yogurt (not lowfat…going for the most calories) into a blender and add a big heaping spoon of peanut butter (cheap kind is fine) and a big squirt of honey and blend. It’s very thin, and I pour it into the cups I saved from Frosty Paws (I have a bunch) and put plastic wrap or foil over each cup and freeze overnight. Spending $3.39 every two days for Frosty Paws got to be crazy, so I just make my own. And I know what’s in it. We call it doggie ice cream, but can’t say it in the house if it’s not time for the treat because they go wild. So we say “DIC” instead! Don’t see why you couldn’t add a cooked, mashed sweet potato…maybe add a little more water or something.”

I have also seen one that has some blueberries added to it. If you do a web search for “frost paws recipe” you will come up with a list, some have small variations.

You blend it all together and then freeze it (either in ice cube trays, a cookie sheet (then cut into squares), I bought a silicon “paws” baking sheet from the Animal Rescue site a while back and plan on using it for these.
