Cool Treats for the Hot, Hot Heat

It's Summer! And it's hot! To beat the heat, we eat cool treats! Some of our favorites are Frosty Paws and Pumpkin Popsicles. 

Frosty Paws:

32 oz plain, non fat yogurt (we used Greek)
1 banana
2 tbs honey
2 tbs peanut butter

Blend together and pour into ice cube tray or ramekins and FREEZE. * Use ramekins to avoid a messy floor, ice cubes are good for the outdoors!

Pumpkin Popsicles

1 can pumpkin puree ( make sure it's not pumpkin pie mix/filling)
honey (this is optional)

Mix together and FREEZE. 

The pumpkin really helps with digestion- perfect for after surgeries or an upset stomach!

  1. Oreo had a pumpkin popsicle yesterday! I love your idea for the yoghurt ones. I freeze yoghurt in their kongs, but I think I'll add some banana, honey and PB next time!

  2. You are a pair of very lucky dogs getting homemade frosty paws!

  3. What spoiled pups you have. I think I may try these treats for my guys since it is boiling here in Ontario too!! Glad to see your girl is up and about again.

  4. Your peeps make Cool treats! Mama freezes chicken broth for me, I call them chicken pops!

  5. mommy makes us frost paws too! shes never tried the pumpkin though, i'll have to make sure she gets some stuff to make it at the store. you guys look like you love them though!
