Memorial Day has always made me think of the beginning of summer. It makes me want to hang my head out the passenger’s side window of the car and run off cliffs into lakes. And it makes me want to make frozen treats.
We spent our Memorial Day camping and hiking around waterfalls up north, but before we left, I mixed up some frozen dog treats using a few simple ingredients: peanut butter, honey, bananas and yoghurt. It was hot where we were this weekend (80s!) and the dogs were panting up a storm. They were really happy to come home to something frozen to gnaw on. Human of the year status right here. I was skeptical if Jack would like them since he was traumatized by a glob of peanut butter that got stuck to the roof of his mouth circa 2014. But they both ended up loving them.
And they were really easy to make. I chose to go all natural, using unsalted/unsweetened peanut butter, organic honey and bananas, and Mountain High Yoghurt, which doesn’t contain any artificial sweeteners or growth hormones.

Here’s what I used:

Petite sized plastic dog bones or bone treats
1 tablespoon honey
3 oz cups
Combine yoghurt, banana (frozen is best), peanut butter and honey and blend until smooth. Next, pour mixture into cups until they are 3/4 full. Lastly, place your bone in the middle. Freeze overnight and feed to pups!
