So many treats contain ingredients we’ve never heard of, which is worrying.
We made these delicious, hydrating, healthy, and natural dog ice cream that our pooches love! The ice cream is also dairy-free, vegan, gluten-free, and grain-free, making them great for dogs with allergies and intolerances.
We also wanted to make dairy-free ice cream. So many recipes include yogurt, and our dogs struggle to digest dairy, causing them to get a runny tummy.
We’ve used ingredients most of us have around, and you can easily substitute for things you do have. If you don’t have fruits, you can use vegetables, like zucchini, broccoli, peas, sweet potato, or carrot.
Banana – Deliciously sweet, banana is tasty to dogs. It also contains potassium and B6—both essential to your dogs’ health.
Berries – These are low calorie and contain beneficial antioxidants.
Peanut Butter – A high-source of plant-based protein, peanut butter can be added to dog treats. Make sure to find xylitol-free versions, as this artificial sweetener is toxic to dogs. Search for peanut butter, which is 100% pure peanuts, with no added oils, salt, sweetener, or sugar.
I also love that these are refreshing and can be used in a variety of ways. We like to put them into treat-dispensing toys at the slushie stage to make them last longer.
Let us know if you give these a try, and send a picture of your beautiful doggies!
