Dog Ice Cream Recipe

Do you love eating ice cream as a summertime treat? I bet your dog would love it too! 

This dog ice cream recipe is super simple to make with only a couple of ingredients and requires a short amount of time to prep.

Dogs really shouldn't have too much dairy, but some yogurt is actually really beneficial for your dog because of the probiotics found in yogurt.

Test it out with your dog to see how their stomach handles it. Some dogs can handle it better than others.

dog ice cream ingredients

It will only take you about 5-10 minutes to whip these up.

The most time-consuming part is waiting for them to freeze. It usually takes about 3 hours to fully freeze if you have smaller molds. Otherwise, you can let them sit in the freezer overnight before giving them to your dog.

What I love about these is that you can easily customize these and make different ice cream every time! Just switch out some of the ingredients with other dog safe foods.

The measurements don’t actually matter either, just throw some fido friendly foods together, making sure at least one is more liquidy like canned pumpkin or yogurt so that it will combine more easily and freeze better.

You could also use this recipe to stuff into some dog toys, such as a Kong, and freeze. 

If you like the silicone molds I'm using, you can purchase them here.
