These peanut butter and banana frozen dog treats taste great and are great for keeping the dogs cool during the "dog days" of summer.
I'll admit it. I may have bought those expensive Frosty Paws dog treats that tempt me with guilt from the ice cream section of the store. The dogs love them. And I have a hard time NOT buying them since I feel so guilty getting my own treat and not them one. They're the ones roasting and panting out there in the heat all day while I enjoy the nice air conditioned cool of the house. So I bought some.
The dogs had so much fun eating them. I thought I could try making my own. For my first batch I froze them in ice cube trays but my dogs are larger and the dogs devoured them within a minute. The one thing I like about the Frosty Paws is that the dogs spend a few minutes eating them. Next time I'm going to try them in my brownie pan. It would make the perfect sized treat for them and give them a few minutes to enjoy the treat.
