Frozen Pup Treats!

Last January our family became richly blessed by the newest family member to join the crazy Sprouse House. Harley is a 6 year old Golden/Yellow Lab. He sooo fits in! It has been a long time since I have loved a dog like I love Harley. He is suppose to be our son, Joseph's therapy dog. But we all know he is my boy. :0)

Seattle summers last about as long as a blink of your eye. It does not start until July 5th and runs through the end of Augusts. Sometimes we are lucky and the rains hold off till September. But once summer kicks in it is great. Sometimes we make it out of the 80's! When it is hot all you want to do is eat frozen anything. Harley included. Harley loves to chomp on ice and ice cream! I was really excited when I saw a recipe for frozen dog treats aka Frozen Paw treats but for 1/4 of the price. 

My doggie tasters Lucy, Clifford, and Harley gave it 5 paws and 3 wagging tails!

Frozen Paw Treats
1 Large container of yogurt I use plain
1 cup of peanut butter
3 large carrots minced
4 very ripe bananas (the riper the better)

Mix ingredients in food processor till smooth. Place in ice cube trays for 24 hours. Remove and place in ziploc bag. I cut up the ice cube before giving to Harley, otherwise he just swallows it whole! 

You can switch up the ingredients. I have used apples, peas, and even included kale!

These sound great!
I've popped over from my children's site 'our summer of Little House Living' just to say thank you so much for leaving a message for them. It encourages them so much to know people are reading. Thank you for your thoughtfulness!
