Dog Ice Cream Recipe

09 Jul

What do dogs scream for when it’s this hot? Ice cream, of course! If you can’t find a local grocery store or pet retailer who sells Frosty Paws, you can make your own ice cream cubes at home. Here’s a free recipe from our friends at Modern Dog Magazine:

Pumpkin Ice Cream Cubes


1 c water
2 chicken livers
1 c plain low-fat yogurt with active yogurt cultures
1 c solid-pack pumpkin puree (note: not pie filling)


• Bring the water and the chicken livers to boil in a small sauce pan. Decrease the heat and simmer for 8 minutes.
• Drain the livers, reserving the stock for pouring over food or making dog cookies. Allow the livers to cool, then chop finely.
• Combine the livers, yogurt, and pumpkin in a medium bowl and stir until smooth.
• Spoon the mixture into an ice cube tray and freeze for 4 to 6 hours.

Yield: 12 ice-cream cubes, ¾ cup stock

This is a treat best served outdoors, as it can be kind of messy if your dog noses it across the floor while licking away. It’s also a great treat for stuffing in a Kong. For older dogs with sensitive mouths, allow the frozen cubes to thaw for a few minutes before feeding.
