I made my best sous-chef (my Yellow Lab Scout) some homemade Peanut Butter Dog Treats. Since then, I’ve been brainstorming other puppy treats to make. I came across some recipes for Puppy Ice Cream and thought she would just LOVE some Peanut Butter Bacon Puppy Ice Cream for her birthday!! Dessert for dogs, who’s a god boy or girl!

Why this Puppy Ice Cream is so good

  • Easy to make, only 3 ingredients needed.
  • A delicious treat for your dog, without the sugar of human ice cream.
  • Add in your dogs fave flavors.
  • Make doggie ice cream sandwiches!


  • Peanut Butter – go for creamy. I sued Smuckers ‘Natural’.
  • Plain Yogurt – Greek yogurt is good,  it has significantly less lactose than regular yogurt.
  • Bacon bits – optional!

Homemade Dog Friendly Ice Cream

Dog-friendly ice cream is softer and easier to portion than other frozen treats. That makes it a great choice for dogs that tend to scarf treats whole or for senior dogs with limited teeth. These ice cream recipes also work well as meal toppers that mix in easily with regular dog food.

Puppy Ice Cream Sandwich 

 Add in some Peanut Butter Dog Treats and make an ice cream sandwich, my dog loved them! If an ice cream sandwich is desired, place a scoop of the ice cream between two circular dog treats, scrap the excess off the sides, and freeze again (to make less messy).

It was a huge success, so much so that I couldn’t really capture it on film. She definitely loved it!! Since she is on a bit of a diet (Scout is big-boned…not fat…but some say 110 lbs is too big for a female lab…??) she only got to eat one for now. These freeze really well, so I have the others waiting for her in the freezer. She will thank me once the summer heat rolls in! Girl loves to eat!

Top Tips

  • Ice Cream lasts up to 8 weeks in the freezer so your furry friends can enjoy them for a long time.
  • Consider toppings or add-ins. For instance, splash in some low-sodium chicken broth.
  • Use doggie treats to make an ice cream sandwich.
  • Do make sure to avoid giving your dog sweetened dairy products, especially anything with artificial sweeteners. Greek yogurt for dogs is good, thanks to its high protein content.
