Is Ice Cream Safe for Dogs?
Human ice cream is not advisable for dogs due to the sugar and additives. Too much dairy can give them digestive upsets too. As for chocolate ice cream that is just a big no.
What Ice Cream is Safe for Dogs
Making your own ice cream with frozen yogurt is a better option. You can serve just plain yogurt or add a few dog safe fruits or sugar free peanut butter.
Low fat natural or Greek yogurt can be used to make the doggie ice cream. I sometimes use live coconut yogurt too.
As with all dog treats, small portions as a treat should be given. Even when they give you those adorable puppy eyes!
How to make ice cream for dogs
This banana peanut butter dog ice cream recipe is as easy as making a no churn ice cream recipe for yourself. Simply blend the ingredients and freeze. To serve you may need to let the ice cream melt as it can become a bit icy.
For this dog ice cream recipe I used banana as it's a favourite treat and when ripe, mashes well. The peanut butter must be sugar free. I used a 100% peanut butter with nothing but peanuts in it. Low fat Greek yoghurt is preferable as the peanut butter has a high fat content and we don't want to increase this.
