Pug Pops. Hmmm....for pups or for humans? BOTH. Frank and I can eat the same treat?! So exciting! A little background on this simple treat...
Picture 1) Frank burrows. He got himself under the blanket like that. I had no part in it, I promise. He burrows in blankets on the couch, on the bed, in the laundry, everywhere! Picture 2) He sleeps A LOT. He's lazy, stubborn, and doesn't enjoy getting out of bed in the morning. He's like a 13 year old boy starting puberty. I will put the leash on him and he will just stare at me and make some funny noises like "hey lady, what are you thinking?". But he eventually gets out of bed because he knows he will get his morning treat.
Second part to this recipe-Frank loves yogurt! He runs right over when he see's the yogurt container. We don't feed him table food except we do let him lick yogurt containers. And if we make popcorn we throw him a few pieces. We make him work for it. We have dropped cooked sweet potatoes before and he really likes those too. BUT we really don't feed him table food except for these occasional cases.
All that being said, I wanted to make him some homemade treats. You know all this spare time I have leaves for a lot of brainstorming. It's very hot in Florida for Frank, so a frozen treat sounded perfect!
3 ingredients, 1 ice cube tray. SO easy. Bonus-you can eat them too for a tasty, frozen treat!
Serves: 14 treats
Creation time: 10 mins + 30 mins to freeze
- 1/2 cup plain greek yogurt
- 1/4 cup canned pumpkin (can be subbed for sweet potato)
- 1 TBSP natural peanut butter (peanuts, salt)
- Mix yogurt, pumpkin, and peanut butter together.
- Scoop 2 tsp of mixture into ice cube tray slots. I filled mine until the mixture was gone.
- Freeze for 30 mins. Store in air tight container in freezer. (I used a butter knife to pop them out of the ice tray. I recommend waiting about 15 mins after taking them out the feezer to remove them)
- I put one in the microwave for 10 seconds to soften and put it in a small dish for Frank to eat. I only give one to him 2x/week.
