2 Ingredient Frozen Peanut Butter Banana Dog Treats

I’m switching things up a bit today with a different kind of recipe. This one is for our four legged doggy friends. However, despite the fact that I meant it for dogs, we humans could eat it too. In fact, you could eat it alongside your dog. The hubs does. :)

Frozen Peanut Butter Banana Dog Treats

I decided to make these treats when I realized I’ve been posting all these great frozen summer treats – like the Mint Oreo Brownie Ice Cream Cake, Lemon Icebox Pie, and Snickers Peanut Butter Brownie Ice Cream Cake – and I’m leaving out my favorite furry friend – our sweet black lab, Jessie! She gets hot during the summer too! Maybe even more than we do! After all, she has lots of pretty, thick black hair.

Frozen Peanut Butter Banana Dog Treats

We normally buy her frozen doggy ice cream treats at the grocery store. But after falling in love with the ease of One Ingredient Banana Ice Cream, I decided I could totally use that as the base for a really tasty and healthy dog treat. Plus, it’s cheaper to make myself. :)

And they are so easy to make. Once you’ve made your banana ice cream from frozen bananas, you add some peanut butter, then freeze. Does it get any easier?!

I topped mine off with a little doggie treat for decoration, but that’s totally optional. :)

The hardest part (for both of us!) was making her wait to eat them until after I’d taken pictures. She was waiting as patiently as she could but once she got it, it didn’t stand a chance.

I’d say she liked it. :)

2 Ingredient Frozen Peanut Butter Banana Dog Treats

Yield: 3-4 frozen treats

Ingredients

4 bananas
1/2 cup peanut butter
4 plastic mini cups (you could use paper cups, but I'd take the paper off before giving it to your dog)

Instructions

1. Peel and slice your bananas.
2. Freeze banana slices.
3. Put frozen banana slices in a food processor and blend. You’ll need to scraped down the sides a few times. It will get pretty thick.
4. Keep blending until it smooths out into soft serve banana ice cream.
5. Add peanut butter and mix well.
6. Separate into 3-4 cups and freeze.
