Puppy Pupsicles – Dairy Free

Yep, I have a lactose-intolerant dog, so here is a recipe I created just for Bucky. With temperatures rising to the 100s here in Texas, this treat will keep your pups chill!

  • Prep Time: 3 minutes
  • Cook Time: freeze for 2 hours or longer
  • Total Time: 20 minute
  • Yield: 24 1x

Ingredients

Scale

One ripe banana

1 cup unsweetened coconut milk

One tablespoon peanut butter (make sure it doesn’t contain xylitol, which is toxic to dogs)

One tablespoon of honey or maple syrup (optional for added sweetness)

1/4 cup dog-friendly fruits (such as blueberries, strawberries, or chopped apples) (optional)

Instructions

Peel the bananas and cut them into small pieces. Place the banana pieces in a blender or food processor.
Add the coconut milk to the blender with the bananas.
Add the peanut butter to the blender. If you’re adding honey or maple syrup, add it now as well.
Blend all the ingredients together until smooth and well combined.
If you’re adding dog-friendly fruits, stir them into the mixture.
Pour the mixture into ice cube trays or small silicone molds. This will make it easier for your dog to enjoy later.
Place the trays or molds in the freezer and let them freeze for at least 4 hours or until firm.
Once the dog ice cream is frozen, remove it from the freezer and allow it to thaw for a few minutes before serving it to your dog.

Store any leftover ice cream in an airtight container in the freezer for future use.

Notes

Always ensure that the peanut butter you use doesn’t contain xylitol, as it can be toxic to dogs.
If your dog has any specific dietary restrictions or allergies, consult with your veterinarian before giving them this ice cream or modifying the recipe to suit their needs.
Remember that moderation is essential when it comes to treating your dog. Ice cream should be given as an occasional treat and not as a regular part of their diet.
