How to Make Dog Ice Cream Treats Like Frosty Paws

Dogs love ice cream but it isn’t necessarily healthy for them. Here’s how to make a healthy dog ice cream treat similar to Frosty Paws.

Just as humans love the cold, sweet taste of ice cream so does your canine companion. If you’ve visited the frozen portion of your grocery store lately you may have seen Frosty Paws, an ice cream made specifically for dogs. It’s completely nondairy and is actually healthy for your canine friend unlike some human ice creams with their high sugar and fat content.

The only drawback to this delicious dog treat is that it can be expensive and sometimes hard to find. Fortunately, you can make your own dog ice cream treat that’s almost identical to Frosty Paws right in your own kitchen. Here’s a recipe for the ultimate dog ice cream treat:


  • 32 ounces of vanilla or plain yogurt.

  • 1 well mashed banana.
  • 2 T. peanut butter.
  • 2 T. honey.


Blend all of the above ingredients in a blender or food processor until creamy and smooth. Place the well mixed ingredients into small paper cups and freeze them until solid.

The ingredients of the resulting dog ice cream treat are all natural and kind to your dog’s digestive system. Plus, dog’s love the taste of peanut butter which makes this dog treat a real hit. You can also make some substitutions using this basic recipe by changing the flavoring such as using apple or pear instead of banana or using molasses in place of the honey.

Experiment a bit and see if you can come up with a totally unique variation on dog ice cream. Be sure to avoid using chocolate in your dog treat recipes since certain forms of chocolate can be toxic to dogs.

If you don’t have the time to make these all natural dog treats, you can find Frosty Paws in the frozen food section of many grocery stores. It seems likely that other brands of dog ice cream will probably follow since Frosty Paws has been a good seller in most grocery stores.

Now you don’t have to feel guilty when your dog watches you eat ice cream with longing eyes. He has an ice cream treat he can truly call his own.

    We do dog rescue for large breeds (German Shepherd, Malmute, Akita, etc) and most of them come to us with either health or behavior issues. Consequently, we spoil them terribly :) Our current batch of mutts (5 total) weigh in at 448 pounds and I can’t afford expensive treats for them and am always on the prowl for homemade stuff… My “pups” are going to LOVE this.

    It’s true dairy products aren’t good for dogs, but yogurt contains much less lactase than regular milk and the live cultures are great for your dog’s digestive system.

    This is the best! My dog Cooper absolutely loves ice cream, and now I can make him his own special ice cream that is ok for him to eat!

    My dog didn’t like the recipe above at all, however, below is an alternate recipe he LOVED!

    Rice Dream (32 oz carton) mixed with vanilla yogurt (16oz)

    I pour about a 1/2 cup portion of this mixture into several small ramekins, then keep on hand in the freezer for my large dog to enjoy!
