|All of the treats I made in gallon-sized bags. For about twice the price of the Wag-gurt you get the equivalent of around four times the treats. These should last all summer at the very least!|
Large mixing bowl
Something to mix with (I used a large spoon)
Mold that can be frozen (I used a standard ice cube tray)
- Try to choose a mold appropriate for the size of your dog.
56 oz yogurt (I used 32 oz plain yogurt, 24 oz plain Greek yogurt)
12 oz jar peanut butter (chunky)
1 tbsp honey
- Combine yogurt, peanut butter and honey in a large mixing bowl. Mix until no more globs of peanut butter can be seen. The consistency should be smooth and pudding-like if you ignore the bits of peanut.
- Add apple juice until the mixture becomes watery.
- Pour into mold and freeze until firm.
- Remove from mold and serve.
- Substitute fat free yogurt for a pup who could loose a few pounds.
- Replace peanut butter and honey with your pup's favorite fruit (mashed).
- Leave out honey and replace apple juice with water for a pup that has issues with sugar.
- Replace honey and peanut butter with your pup's favorite meat (ground or chopped fine) for a more savory treat.
- Use your imagination!
I actually made and froze the whole batch of these suckers several weeks ago now. It took me several days to freeze the entire mixture since we only have one ice cube tray this size (the others make teeny tiny cubes). I intended to count how many treats were made, but I lost track around the fourth tray-full or so. I think there are about eighty treats. Since Ebon was having some issues while I was freezing them, he hadn't been able to try them yet. The verdict?
|What's that? Smells like peanuts.|
|Lick, lick. Yum!|
