One thing I like about making frozen dog treats at home for my dogs is that they’re super easy to make, I don’t have to turn the oven on and all 3 of my dogs love a nice frosty treat -especially if it contains peanut butter.
Odin is a BIG fan of anything and everything peanut butter and even though he’s not a fan of bananas, if they’re covered in peanut butter he’ll gladly devour them.
I had some overripe bananas that were 1 day away from going in the trash so instead of wasting them, I mashed them up, added some peanut butter and a little Greek yogurt, and froze them for the boys.
Ingredients For Frozen Peanut Butter & Banana Dog Treats
You only need 3 ingredients for this dog treat recipe and you probably already have them in your kitchen.
- 2 ripe bananas
- 1/2 c of peanut butter (make sure it doesn’t contain xylitol)
- 1/4 c of plain Greek yogurt
You can use homemade peanut butter or store-bought peanut but make sure that it doesn’t contain xylitol.
Xylitol is an artificial sweetener that can be found in several foods and it’s very toxic to dogs even in small amounts.
I also always use plain nonfat Greek yogurt in most of my dog treat recipes but you can replace the yogurt for goat milk if you have it on hand.
- Peel and cut up or smash the bananas
- Add smashed bananas to blender or food processor
- Add yogurt
- Add peanut butter
- Blend until smooth
- Spoon mixture into silicone molds or ice cube trays
- Allow the dog to lick peanut butter off of the spoon
- Freeze for 3-4 hours
- Serve to your dog
- Store in an airtight container in the freezer
These 3-ingredient frozen peanut butter dog treats should stay good in the freezer for up to a month when stored properly but they probably won’t last that long here!
I recommend placing your molds or ice cube trays on a baking sheet because it makes it so much easier to transfer to the freezer without making a big mess.
As always, I recommend checking with your veterinarian before adding any new treats to your dog’s diet.
One last thing, this recipe made 25 frozen peanut butter & banana dog treats for us but I used small and large molds so the amount you get might vary based on the size of the molds or ice cube trays that you’re using.
