How To: Homemade Frosty Paws Recipe
Hey guys, Basil here! In case you missed my guest post yesterday over on daddy's blog, the parents have kindly allowed me to double post here today with my homemade version of frosty paws dog treats.
This idea came about after dad brought me with him to work one day and amidst all the new scents and people I came across, there was one lady who has a couple of German Sheppard's (Skylar and Keno) — I've not officially met them but I did pick up there scent. She asked me if I'd ever been lucky enough to taste frosty paws, to which I just hung my head in shame. Anyway, this is the recipe just as I got it from their mom...those lucky dogs.
- 1- 24 ounce tub, all natural Greek vanilla yogurt (plain can be used — call me fancy).
- 1 1/4 cups, creamy peanut butter
- Glass ramekins or other freezer safe container
Whisk together Greek yogurt and peanut butter to create a creamy smooth textured mix, then add to your ramekins, about a quarter cup per container (more if you want to especially spoil your favorite pup).
Cover individually with clear wrap and place in the freezer for 5-6 hours to set up or freeze (thanks Brandon for holding the ramekins while I sniff my way around your SLR).
When you remove them from the freezer they will have a hard consistency (harder than ice cream and perfect for a good ole puppy licking).
Now I must admit, the discipline I had for the above shot does not come easy, but not soon after I just couldn't stand it anymore and had to dig in. Oh yeah...
Do you have any favorite homemade dog treat recipes? I'd love to know so I can continue to broaden my repertoire.
Signing off until next time,
