Homemade Frosty Paws

Homemade Frosty Paws

School’s out, it’s over ninety degrees outside, and I’m covered in mosquito bites. Summer is officially in full swing here in Georgia, and even with the copious amounts of rain, we’re already feeling the heat. Gone are the days where Topher and I could take mid-afternoon walks. Now, it’s either raining, or so hot that the poor guy melts into a puddle after approximately half a mile.

So how do you beat the heat? Well, for the most part, we don’t—we take walks in the early morning, we keep the A/C on, we avoid the mosquitoes and fleas when we can. However, what point is summer if you can’t indulge in cold treats? And who am I to keep that summer tradition from my dog? So let’s getting down to making some frozen dog treats, starting with an old favorite: Frosty Paws!

Because this frozen dog treat has been around for quite a while, there are a ton of recipes for Frosty Paw treats floating around on the internet, so I looked at a few to see what I might need. However, most of them call for 32 ounces of yogurt! I’m pretty sure I’d have a freezer full of Frosty Paws treats for the rest of the summer (and perhaps into fall) if I’d stuck with that. Sorry Topher, the freezer just isn’t big enough for that kind of surplus.



  • 1 1/2 cups yogurt
  • 1 banana
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1 tbsp honey


I’m not going to even write out steps for this recipe, it’s that easy. Take all of your ingredients, put them in a blender, and blend them! Then pour into the molds of your choice, and pop into the freezer. I used some cupcake tins, and a silicone tray when I promptly ran out of cupcake tins. If you want to fancy up your frosty paw treats, give them about thirty minutes in the freezer to solidify, and then stick a milkbone (or homemade treat of your choice) into the center.


After a few hours, your frosty paws treats should be set! Pop one out and give them to your pup! Preferably in their bowl or outside, or some place where you don’t care if they make a mess. Because they totally will.

    We keep it simple… We just do powdered Peanut Butter mixed with greek yogurt and freeze them in little smiley face ice cube trays.

    What if I’m allergic to peanut butter? I’m scared if she licks me, I’d get hives or something. Could I use something else to replace it or leave it out completely?

      Oh good question! I would try leaving it out completely—most other nuts aren’t safe for dogs, or just aren’t very good for them, so another nut butter may not be a great replacement. I think using two bananas instead of one would keep the consistency of the frosty paws right, without the peanut butter. We’d love to know how it works out for you!

    I make mine with the same ingredients minus the honey and just stir everything together in a bowl. Instead of using cupcake liners, I use small dixie cups and then cover each one with plastic wrap and pop in the freezer. My dog loves them and over time has learned not to tear up the dixie cup after it’s all gone!

    Please don’t use Milkbones,they have chemicals and additives toxic to dogs. The ice cream is great as is….
