There is really nothing cuter than watching a dog lick from a cup between his paws. It’s one of life’s great pleasures.

Instead of sending you off to search for four-to-a-box pre-made treats, we invite you whip up your own big batch at home. It’s so easy, even your dog could do it — but since he isn’t allowed in Safeway, it’s up to you.


The Scoop:

Here’s all you need to make Homemade Frosty Paws, a doglicious summertime treat:

  • 1 Quart Vanilla Yogurt (preferably nonfat)
  • 1 Medium Ripe Banana
  • 2 Tablespoons Peanut Butter (creamy or crunchy)
  • 2 Tablespoons Honey

First, puree the banana in a blender. Add the peanut butter and honey and continue processing until smooth. Then, add yogurt and process until all ingredients are blended together. Pour the mix into small containers. Glad reusable mini containers with tops work great and they’re eco-friendly. Dixie 3-ounce mini cups work well too. Freeze until solid. This mix makes about 10 per batch.
