Have you depleted your supply of berry pupsicles? Is your pup begging for more frozen yumminess? We’ve got you! For the last installment in our summer DIY series, we have all the supplies for an icy twist on a classic dog treat: frozen peanut butter Kongs. Like the pupsicles, these frozen Kongs are totally customizable, but we’ve settled on a delicious chunky monkey recipe. Not only are these treats yummy and dog-safe, they also make for a great enrichment activity!
For your frozen Kongs, you’ll need:
- 1 cup natural peanut butter
- 1 peeled banana
- 1 cup plain yogurt
- 1-2 Kongs of any size
Start by mashing together the banana, peanut butter, and yogurt. Depending on the size of your Kongs, scoop enough of the mixture into each Kong to fill the cavity.
Freeze the Kongs for 2-3 hours or until the mixture is solid.
When frozen, pass a Kong off to your pup! Remember that frozen Kongs can become messy as they melt, so they’re best enjoyed outside on a sunny day. Get ready for lots of peanut-buttery pup kisses!
When the frozen filling has disappeared, wash the Kongs and save them for playing or more frozen recipes. Try out some canned pumpkin, or add some of your dog’s kibble or favorite treats. Your dog will never be bored with a frozen kong between their paws!
