Yes, I know Max is spoiled. It's getting difficult to find Frosty Paws in any grocery store- here (NY) or Florida.
Myra sent me this recipe ages ago. A few weeks ago Cyndy sent me the same one that was on Pinterest!
Aldi now has a store in Riverhead, which is 45 minutes from our home. I usually don't shop in Aldi's but I wanted more avocados for Chocolate Peanut Butter Avocado Pudding which I'm SO addicted to.
Picked up 32 ounces of yogurt- to make this for Max.
This is such a simple recipe. Everything goes into the food processor. Wham, bam and it done.
32 ounces plain yogurt
1/2 cup Skippy Honey Nut Peanut Butter
1/4 cup honey
Add the whole 32 ounces of yogurt, bananas, peanut butter and honey to a food processor and blend until smooth
I bet you wondering- what do I put this in? Some people use ice cube trays and some buy little plastic containers .
Me? I'm super frugal. I used my old Greek yogurt containers. Wash them and if you want add them to the dishwasher on the TOP shelf.
When containers are dry fill them with the Frosty Paw mixture.
Max has 4 in the freezer.
He sure loves his new homemade treat!
Health note: Max does not eat a lot of peanut butter and I usually give him a Frosty Paw once a week. Amanda reminded me in her comment that " SOME peanut butter manufacturers are starting to use Xylitol, an artificial sweetener, to sweeten their peanut butters. Xylitol is very toxic to dogs, causing their body to over produce insulin and causing severe hypoglycemia. Just be sure to always check the ingredients in the peanut butter you buy" which is something I always do.
