Pumpkin Peanut Butter Dog Ice Cream – keep your pup cool all summer with this 4 ingredient recipe! The pumpkin and the yogurt are both great for your dog’s digestive system so you can feel good giving them treats.
Since I’ve been kid free, I’ve been hanging out a lot more with adults and people I don’t really know and I’ve had to explain my blog a lot.
It always comes out, “Well, it’s mostly paleo but I do a lot of dog treats and cocktails and uhh… *nervously downs entire glass of wine* yeah, paleo.”
Okay, so Texas is extra hot this year.
Like, it’s steamy.
Last summer, we spent entire days at the lake. This year? Two hours and we’re done.
It’s too hot.
Of course the dogs are hot, too. Especially the husky. She loves to be outside but she’s just miserable. Even when we wait until after sundown to take her for walks, she still pants for hours afterwards.
Obviously ice cream is the answer for everything.
I love buying the dog ice cream at the grocery store but the’re, like, 6 bucks a box and they only come with 4 cups and when you have 3 dogs, that doesn’t work.
So I started making my own homemade dog ice cream years ago and it’s stupid cheap to make. Only 4 ingredients and you it makes a ton for you to keep in the freezer for those steamy days.
I also have a Apple Peanut Butter Dog Ice Cream if your dog is more of an apple fan!
The ice cream is also human-friendly so if you want to toss your kid outside with a cup, totally fine.

Ingredients for Pumpkin Peanut Butter Dog Ice Cream
- ½ cup pumpkin puree – not pumpkin pie mix, pure pumpkin puree. Pumpkin should be the only ingredient!
- 2 tbsp creamy peanut butter – I like to use peanut butter that only has peanuts listed in the ingredients, no sweeteners or chemicals
- 2 tbsp honey
- 32 ounces plain yogurt – this should be plain flavored and unsweetened
- In a mixing bowl, whisk together pumpkin puree, peanut butter, and honey until smooth
- Use a rubber spatula to fold in the yogurt
- Divide mixture among freezer-safe containers (I like using these containers because they’re perfectly sized for single servings and come with lids)
- Freeze for at least 2 hours before serving
- Let your dog enjoy ice cream all summer long!
Is Peanut Butter Safe for Dogs?
Peanut butter is an excellent source of healthy fats and protein for your dog (not to mention a treat that all dogs love!) but you do need to look at the ingredient list before you share your jar of peanut butter with your pup.
Some peanut butters have an ingredient called xylitol and it is a potentially fatal to dogs so avoid any peanut butter that lists it as an ingredient.
I just play it safe and only buy peanut butter that is made with just peanuts (meaning peanuts is the only ingredient in the ingredients list). It’s better for the dogs and humans in my house!
