Homemade Peanut Butter Dog Ice Cream – easy 4 ingredient treat to keep your pup cool all summer! The yogurt it starts with is great for your dog’s digestive system.
In case you aren’t following me on Instagram, we got a new puppy over the weekend!
We weren’t planning on adopting a pup. Well, we’d briefly talked about looking for a Boxer because my husband loves them. He even had a name picked out: Boxanne.
You gotta kind of sing it.
But then we spent a ridiculous amount of time watching our neighbor’s boxer jump on their trampoline and then sprint across their yard and throw itself at their door. Like, over and over again. Every day.
And we decided that Penelope was more than enough crazy for our house.
But anyway, like every dedicated crazy dog lady, one of the first things I did when we moved here was follow all the local rescue groups on Facebook. Just in case. You never know when a dog will speak to your soul.
And now we have another dog.
Her name is Sofia. Like the princess. She’s a mini schnauzer/dachshund mix which is very cutely nicknamed Schnoxie.
Homemade Peanut Butter Doggy Ice Cream!
Bad news for Sofia though! She’s gonna have to wait until she’s a little older to have this treat I’m sharing today.
We go through boxes and boxes of doggy ice cream every summer. I always give the pups some after walks or after the dog park because who doesn’t like ice cream on a hot day?
But that stuff is expensive. Like, super expensive. I think a box of 4 was over 4 bucks last time I bought some. I spent around that on ingredients for this Homemade Peanut Butter Doggy Ice Cream (really just yogurt since I already keep the rest of the stuff on hand) and I have at least 20 little cups of ice cream in my freezer now.
The dogs LOVE it.
And I won’t lie, I tried it before I froze it and it was pretty tasty.

My brothers dog is gluten intolerant & I make treats for her and my pittie. I can’t wait to try all these recipes. Thanks!

I made these for my Golden today and he LOVES them. He is older and has problems chewing crunchy treats , so these are perfect for my sweet boy. I haven’t seen him so excited over eating a treat in months. Thank you! I will be keeping my freezer stocked with these!

I’m singing Boxanne… it’s in my head now and it will be there for days. Thanks! :-D
I’ve been seeing Sofia in my FB feed and she is just awesomely adorable! AS is the doggy ice cream!! I had NO idea dogs could eat ice cream… then again, I don’t have pets so that’s that. hehe
This is so fun!

Aside from my dog probably getting sick from it. He would be an ahole and eat the plastic cup. I could pretty much count on that. HAHAHA!
I want to steal her!!
Alice @ Hip Foodie Mom says
Sofia is the cutest! we celebrated my daughter’s birthday just last weekend at the local humane society and the pup they fell in love with didn’t do well with loud noises so it was a no-go. We will not lose hope! and ok,I didn’t even know doggy ice cream was a real thing. Where the hell have I been? love this! homemade!!! awesome! do your dogs know how much they are loved?!

I LOVE all of the pics and videos of your dogs that you share. my boyfriend and I are huge dog fans too. We were watching some of the videos of your dogs playing the other day. *swoon* I want to get more but my ol’ 15 year old pup is used to being queen of the house and I think she would hate us if we got another one right now. Going to have to mske some of this ice cream for her. She will love it. :)

Clearly you are a WAYYY better dog mama than me cause I have never attempted any homemade treats! Such a great idea! And I love your new puppy. Kinda makes me want to go puppy shopping this weekend.

Haha, Boxanne has a definitely ring to it. But your little Sofia is adorable, too! This is such a fun idea for the pups!

Boxanne–that name is hilarious! I have a German Shep/Lab mix, and I know she would be all over these!
Kacey @ The Cookie Writer says
How do you do it?! I struggle with one child and one dog, lol. I must admit, my Golden would love to live with you, so instead I will have to make this awesome treat for him (I will have to test it out slowly with all of his allergies.)
Krista @ Joyful Healthy Eats says
My lab would have a hay day with this! So fun!
Amy @Very Culinary says
I can’t even stand how much I adore her.
Nicole @ Or Whatever You Do says
Doggie ice cream is about the best thing I’ve ever HEARD of! I have some serious puppy fever, but one of my boys has some wicked allergies so no dog for us. :(
Sharon @ What The Fork Food Blog says
This is great! My lab Rocco is allergic to eggs, fish and corn (among a few other things) which are in almost every single dog treat and dog food out there. It’s so hard to find treats without those ingredients. Can’t wait to try this out for him, he’s gonna love it!
