Robin loves yogurt, various types of fruit, and she really loves her good girl treats (as we call her little dog cookie treats). I decided to make her a special summer treat.
These are my ingredients.
The yogurt, banana, peanut butter, and honey were blended until smooth with a hand blender. Fold in the crushed dog cookie bits with a spatula.
Frosty pup treats
1 - 750gm container of Liberté plain yogurt
30ml (2 tbsp) peanut butter (I used a no salt, no sugar added style)
15ml (1 tbsp) honey
1 over-ripe banana, mashed
Nova Scotia wild blueberries enough to top each treat.
30ml (2 tbsp) of crushed dog cookies (I use the bits from the bottom of the treat jar)
Blend the first four ingredients until combined.
Fold in the crushed dog cookie bits.
Line muffin tins with paper liners.
Pour yogurt mixture into the lined muffin tin
Top each treat with a blueberry.
Place the tins into freezer.
After the treats are frozen solid remove them from the muffin tin and put them into plastic zip bag, larger sized treats could be put in individual sandwich sized bags.
Store the treats in the freezer.
Don't forget to label the container DOG TREATS...
Since Robin is only a little dog I made her treats using tins that make mini-size muffins. I scooped 30ml of the yogurt mixture into each lined section of the muffin tin and top each one with a blueberry.
Using the mini muffin tins I was able to make 42 mini sized treats. For a large dog use regular sized muffin tins, and I'd guess you'd get about 12 to 16 treats.
To serve remove the paper liner from the frozen treat and watch your dog enjoy a very cool treat.
Note: These are messy and should be served outside.
My cats love yogurt and they like these treats too.
Robin says YUM!
The plate is clean enough to put back in the cupboard... kidding.
My recipe was inspired by this Frozen Peanut Butter Yogurt Treats recipe.
