Peanut Butter Bacon Pupsicles: Frozen Treats for Dogs


This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Food Lion. All opinions are 100% mine.


One of our family's favorite things to do on summer evenings is grab a frozen treat from the ice cream truck and eat it outside on our deck. There is nothing better after a long hot day, and everyone in our house gets excited when we hear the ice cream truck music playing outside.

I want our entire family to be able to enjoy this fun tradition, but since the ice cream man doesn't carry frozen treats for dogs, I decided to make my own. These homemade frozen treats are super easy to make and my dogs love them! And the best part is that I can get everything I need on my regular grocery run to Food Lion (and save at the same time). Keep reading to find out how to make these simple homemade frozen treats for dogs that your pups are sure to love too.



Easy Homemade Frozen Treats for Dogs

These doggie popsicles are the perfect frozen treat for summer. With just 4 ingredients, they are really easy to make and packed with healthy things your dog will love. My 5 year old twins love to help me make them (and to help give them to the dogs too!). Here's what you need.

Ingredients (makes 6 small treats)

  • 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
  • 1/2 cup smooth peanut butter (make sure it does not contain xylitol)
  • Bacon bits
  • Companion small dog biscuits or snack sticks (or both!)

Directions

Start by mixing the yogurt and peanut butter together until well incorporated.  Set out 6 small plastic cups (coated paper cups work too). Sprinkle a thin layer of bacon bits in the bottom of each cup.


Next, divide the peanut butter/yogurt mixture evenly into the cups. Then, press a dog biscuit or snack stick into each one. If you're using the snack sticks, you will need to break them into smaller pieces.


Place the cups into the freezer and chill until frozen solid. Then carefully pop them out and you have peanut butter bacon "pupsicles" your dog will love.


These frozen treats even have a layer of bacon bit "sprinkles" so your dog seriously will not be able to resist. My dogs went nuts when I pulled these out of the freezer and couldn't wait to grab a bite.


Grady could barely contain his excitement and he was well rewarded with a treat that he gobbled right up.


Like the treat connoisseur that he is, Griffey gave his popsicle a good sniff before devouring it in about 5 seconds flat.


These frozen treats will definitely be a summer staple in our house from now on, and I'm so glad that I'm able to stock up on everything I need to make them (along with the rest of my pet supplies) on my regular grocery trip to Food Lion.
