We used to buy frosty paws in the freezer section of the grocery store for Panzer. Then I got this recipe which he likes a lot better, tastes pretty good and is good for him.

32 oz. of vanilla yogurt, 2 tbs. peanut butter, 2 tbs. honey, and mashed banana. Mix together and then separate into freezer containers and freeze. You can sub. a lot of different fruits for the banana. We have done strawberries and cherries.

Panzer goes nuts for them. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/13_puppy.gif

You are quite welcome.
The reason I posted the recipe is because not only is it good for dogs, but much more affordable than the store version. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/01_smile.gif

Thank you!! My 4 love Frosty Paws. If you were to open my freezer that is all you would see, especially during the summer. I can't even say the words, I have to say FP or they will coming running.

My dog was like that with FP's, but he likes this recipe even more. We call this ice cream and he LOVES it. When I give it to him he must be in the grass and in the down position. He automatically does it when he sees me coming with it

Thanks for a great recipe! It has been over 100+ for a month now and my Heidi loves this recipe even though she is an indoor dog these days. I opened the freezer yesterday to get something and she dove right in and grabbed one and ran! Next time I will make double batch!

Frosty paws are frozen treats for dogs. They come in plastic cups much like the individual ice cream cups that come with the wooden spoon that kids eat. They come 4 to a box and I used to get them at the grocery store. Now I make the above recipe instead. Much better for the dog.

I made these for my dogs -- I left out the honey and added a little extra peanut butter. Froze them in ice cube trays and they LOVE them! The ice cube trays are easy -- pop them and store in a ziplock. Definitely more healthy and cost effective than frosty paws, or an occassional ice cream run!

I've been using this recipe for Frosty Paws for years. The only thing I do differently is I make it in one large bowl, then after it's frozen I give each of the Hooligans a few spoonsful in their bowls and I eat the rest - it's really a tasty treat for both man and beast.

If you want to add another flavor: mix a 1:1 ration of canned Pumpkin (NOT the pie mix) and Yogurt put in small containers and freeze. Our Big Lots have these little rubbermaid bowls with lids that they sell 4 in a pack for $.99 which make for a nice serving for the dogs.

Since I have to go grocery shopping this weekend anyway I can't wait to buy the ingredients and give it a go. Sean is "very" food motivated so I'm sure he'll love frosty /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/31_paw.gif Thanks again for the recipe.
