You know who else is screaming for ice cream this summer? Your pup. Giving them a cone of chocolate chunk is obviously not the best idea. So we rounded up some of the most tasty, healthy DIY recipes for doggos (that you will probably want to eat too):
Peanut Butter Carob Pupsicles
We know even the smallest bit of chocolate can cause major tummy problems for your pup, so these frosty treats use carob, a vegan chocolate substitute that is just as tasty but doesn’t contain any of the toxic ingredients.
Strawberry Coconut Ice Cream
This simple three-ingredient ice cream is made using plain yogurt, fresh strawberries, and coconut butter, which we love for improving digestion.
Peanut Butter Bacon Ice Cream Sandwiches
This sweet-and-salty ice cream contains two of any pup's favorite ingredients: peanut butter and bacon! Serve frozen or put a scoop between your dog’s favorite biscuits to make an ice cream sandwich.
Cinnamon Carob Pupsicles
Made with only frozen bananas, carob powder, and cinnamon, these pupsicles are not only easy to mix together, but they’re great for dogs with arthritis because of their anti-inflammatory properties.
Peanut Butter Banana Ice Cream Paws
These peanut butter and banana ice cream treats combine peanut butter, yogurt, bananas and honey. You can also freeze in one big batch for larger scoops.
Sweet Potato Ice Cream Pupcakes
These sweets are made with fiber-rich sweet potato, which is great for your dog’s digestive health. Topped with cream cheese frosting and peanut butter drizzle.
Cinnamon Oatmeal Ice Cream
Blended with bananas and cinnamon, this ice cream is a great source of potassium and magnesium for your pup. It also contains oatmeal, which is a healthy carb for any pup who is sensitive to wheat or other grains.
