Prepare your furry friends for a hot summer by keeping them cool with some frozen fun treats!! Here are a couple of my pups favorite recipes!

Peanut Butter and Banana Ice Drops

  • 1 cup PB
  • 1 banana
  • 1/4 cup water
  1. Line a sheet pan with wax paper
  2. Mash and combine PB, Banana and water in a small bowl
  3. Spoon the mixture onto the tray in drops and let freeze over night
  4. Once frozen store in a bag or container in the freezer

The pups go BANANAs for this treat and it helps them stay cool on a nice hot day!
