Last month, we celebrated Clem’s 8th birthday. EIGHT YEARS?! Where did the time go?
Hi my name is Clem and this is my own personal teepee. I am spoiled. Thanks @vintagekandy! #dog #dogsofinstagram #instadog #pup #jackrussell #terrier #terror #pooch #adorbs #dogsofig #jrt #teepee #poser #spoiled #spoiledrotten

There are several dog-friendly recipes on this site, so I wanted to make Clem a new one for her birthday. (Like this one and this one!) I decided to tackle Frosty Paws — without all of the junk inside them. You may ask: what are Frosty Paws? Well, I suppose I would call it doggie ice cream. I only bought them once for Clem, for her first birthday. They were a little large for her puppy mouth, and I think she got a little brain-freeze.
Although the photo above is cute, I think that last year’s photoshoot went better 😉
This time, I made them from only wholesome ingredients, so your pup can cool down in a safe and healthy way. I know that the heat will be oppressive here in just a few short weeks, so our freezer is stocked up with this Clem’s Pumpkin “Frosty Paws” Recipe!
Clem’s Pumpkin “Frosty Paws” RecipeCourse: Uncategorized
1 c. canned pumpkin
1/2 c. dry dog food (whatever your pup eats)
1 T. natural peanut butter
- Combine all of the ingredients in your food processor and run it until everything is smooth, namely the dry dog food.
- The perfect mold for these Frosty Paws knockoffs? Those little paper (light cardboard, almost) cupcake liners. This Clem’s Pumpkin “Frosty Paws” Recipe fills about 6 of those cups, about halfway full.
- Freeze the cups for a few hours and store them in the freezer until use (in an airtight bag or container). Let them thaw out on the counter for at least two hours before feeding them to your dog.
- I hope you and your pups enjoy this Clem’s Pumpkin “Frosty Paws” Recipe 🙂
