Frozen Peanut Butter & Banana Dog Treats

Frozen Peanut Butter & Banana Dog Treats

Our dog Grace recently ran out of her homemade dog treats but since it’s been so hot outside lately I decided to make frozen dog treats instead of baked treats. I kept it simple by using only three ingredients – peanut butter, banana, and Greek yogurt. First, I melted some peanut butter in the microwave and poured it in the cute silicone dog treat trays that I recently stumbled upon. Then, I added a layer of mashed-up sweet/ripe banana combined with Greek yogurt then put them in the freezer for a few hours. Grace was absolutely THRILLED with these frozen treats and did her best puppy eyes to get a second one. Truth be told, I was pretty tempted to eat one myself!

How to Make Frozen Peanut Butter & Banana Dog Treats

Heat the peanut butter in a microwave-safe dish for 10-15 seconds, or until it’s softened and a bit runny.

Spoon an even layer of peanut butter in each silicone mold. Slightly tap the silicone trays to remove any air bubbles and to make them level.

Make the banana mixture by mashing the ripe banana in a bowl with a fork until creamy. Add the Greek yogurt and mix until well combined. Spoon an even layer of the banana/yogurt mixture until the mold is filled up. Tap the silicone trays lightly on the counter then place them into the freezer for 4 hours.

  1. Good thing Thatcher is in bed, or he would be telling me we need to take a long road trip, so he could use the puppy eyes to get some of these from you! These look wonderful, Pam; I’d be tempted to sample one, too! Gracie is a lucky pooch!

  2. My dog will love these. Just an added note- make sure the peanut butter does not contain xylitol for our furry friends!

  3. A word of WARNING – It’s no longer easy to say whether it’s safe to give even a small amount of peanut butter to your dog. And there’s a one-word answer as to why… Xylitol!

    Xylitol is an increasingly common sugar-replacement sweetener that’s in hundreds of products, including some brands of peanut butter. It’s an “all natural” sugar substitute that’s fine for people, but it’s extremely poisonous to dogs and poisons thousands of dogs each year. BEWARE.

    Take care, Diane
