Clem's Pumpkin "Frosty Paws" Recipe

Last month, we celebrated Clem's 8th birthday. EIGHT YEARS?! Where did the time go?

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-freezed.

Although the photo above is cute, I think that last year's photo shoot 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 recipe!

Clem's Pumpkin "Frosty Paws" Recipe
1 c. canned pumpkin
1/2 c. dry dog food (whatever your pup eats)
1 banana
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 recipe fills about 6 of those cups, about half-way full.

Freeze the cups for a few hours and store in the freezer until use (in a airtight bag or container). Let them thaw out on the counter at least two hours before feeding them to your dog.

I hope you and your pups enjoy this recipe :-)
