Camp Run-A-Pup Fourth of July Frosty Paws.
We try hard to maintain the same diet your pups are used to at home, but a few special treats are inevitable. There are, of course, Joe’s famous bacon bones. But because the real secret to bacon bones is in the song and presentation, Joe took the recipe to his grave. We have just not been able to find anyone else willing to stand in our kitchen wearing boxers, strumming on his chest, yodeling “Dem Bacon, Bacon, Bacon, bones!” Ok, enough said.
However, thanks to the website JohannTheDog.com, I do have another great recipe to share. Homemade Frosty Paws! My pups just love them and so do yours! Offering full disclosure, I use regular ol’ yogurt, peanut butter and fruit. Since I treat your pups like members of my family, they don’t eat organic. The fruit my campers like best is apple or banana. Rascal loves pineapple, but it does have its downside, which I will leave to your imagination.
Johann’s Recipe for Homemade Frosty Paws!
* 1 large container (32 oz) of low-fat, plain, organic yogurt
* 3 handfuls of fresh (organic is best) blueberries
* 1 banana
* 2 tbsp of organic peanut butter
* Other fruit as desired – like apple slices, orange slices, pineapple slices, and more.
Chop up the banana in small pieces (or mash) and mix all ingredients together. Place the mixture in ice cube trays and freeze for about 3 hours.
Once frozen, run hot water over the underside of the trays, pop out the Frosty Paws, and serve. That’s it!
For fun, you can use bone-shaped ice cube trays!
I could make a flag cake, or decorate cup cakes with red, white and blue M&M’s. I could. The possibilities are endless. But you know me…I would rather be just a little odd! Frosty Paw… anyone?
