Homemade Frosty Paws!

It's gonna be warm here this weekend!

And we have big plans - some agility, some hiking, some playing in our kiddie pool, and more! Can't wait!!!

One way Mum helps keep us cool after our outside activities is with a super cool homemade frosty paw. I not only like the frosty paws, but I like to lick the spoon too!

How do we make 'em? Here's my favorite recipe for homemade frosty paws!

Ingredients needed:

* 1 large container (32 oz) of low-fat, plain, organic yogurt
* 3 handfuls of fresh (organic is best) blueberries
* 1 banana
* 2 tbsp of organic peanut butter
* Other fruit as desired - like, apple slices, orange slices, pineapple slices, and more. Remember, locally grown and organic is best!


Chop up the banana in small pieces (or mash) and mix all ingredients together. Place the mixture in ice cube trays and freeze for about 3 hours.

Once frozen, run hot water over the under side of the trays, pop out the frosty paws, and serve. That's it. For fun, you can use bone shaped ice cube trays!

Enjoy your treats and your weekend!


  1. I'm going to try this next month. I'm sure my dog will thank you for posting this. :)

  2. I made these for Romeo- He just loves them. Thanks!

  3. Thanks! My grammy just sent this to my mom, and I hope she will try making the Frosty Paws for me!

  4. How many popsicles does this make?

    1. It makes a lot, but you can freeze them. Probably about two quart size baggies.
