Humans scream for the stuff, and now your dog can enjoy it as well thanks to this tasty, wholesome, and dog-safe recipe.
How to Make Dog-Friendly “Ice Cream”
This recipe uses plain yogurt – a natural probiotic – and fresh fruit instead of sugar to keep it healthy. You’ll want to use natural peanut butter that doesn’t contain the artificial sweetener xylitol, which can harm our furry family members. We wrap up this recipe by sprinkling in crumbled BLUE™ Health Bars, which are packed with Omega 3s and antioxidants. Now your buddy has his own healthy frozen treat!
