Whip up a batch of Frosty Paws for your dog. This yummy, cool treat is perfect for summer days and will confirm your status as your dog’s favorite person of the house.

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)
  • Freeze until solid. Makes about 10 servings per batch.
