It’s been a while since I’ve posted a homemade dog treat recipe, but today I’ve got a great one to share! With summer on the horizon, it’s about time I made a frozen treat for Caesar to snack on! Not only are these frozen dog treats a tasty reward for man’s best friend, but they help keep them cool in the summer heat!

These dog treats are fairly similar to the peanut butter and banana dog treats that I’ve made in the past, only oatmeal is not the base for these! I learned from a friend who makes “pup cakes” that Greek yogurt is a fantastic option for dogs, so that’s what I chose to go with this time! It’s like an ice cream for your dog!
The process for these peanut butter and banana frozen dog treats was simple! Mash up the bananas, then mix in the remaining ingredients. Microwaving the peanut butter for about 15 seconds helped make it easier to get out of the measuring cup and mixed together.
The mixture then made it’s way to silicone ice cube molds. Since Caesar is a pretty big boy, I used these large ice cube molds, which I purchased a while back to keep my mojitos cold. For smaller dogs, you could use these adorable bone and paw print silicone molds.
After an overnight freeze, Caesar and his treats were ready to chill outside! From the looks of it, he enjoyed this one a lot! I’ve got more stashed away in the freezer, and will be adding to the stash next time I end up with a bunch of over ripe bananas.
- 2 over ripe bananas
- 1 cup Greek yogurt
- 1/2 cup peanut butter
- In a bowl, mash bananas until completely smooth. Mix in remaining ingredients, and stir until well incorporated.
- Pour mixture into ice cube molds, and freeze overnight. Store in an air tight container, in freezer.
- Microwave peanut butter briefly, to make it easier to work with.
