Homemade Frosty Paws

• 1 Quart plain or vanilla yogurt
• 1 banana or 1 lrg jar banana baby food
• 2 Tbsp peanut butter
• 2 Tbsp honey
• 2 Tbsp carob powder (optional)
If using regular banana mash well....mix all ingredients until well blended ( you could use a food processor or blender) Place into ice cube trays or small bathroom sized cups and freeze. Once frozen you can store in freezer in plastic bag. The great thing is you can play with recipe and add stuff that your dog likes. I use the carob powder or carob chips . Some people add granola to theirs.
