Animal Channel shared a recipe to make frozen homemade goodies for the furry friends to make their summer easy.

Everyone enjoys a cool treat to beat the heat. As the weather gets hot, the dog too would love to eat something cool.

The pets will be looking for ways to cool down and a frozen treat comes as a blessing. There are quite a few recipes that the dogs would love.

The pets will go crazy over these peanut butter and banana frozen dog treats. The dogs will love the taste and these treats will also keep them cool when it’s hot outside.

The best part is that they are very easy to make. One only needs three simple ingredients. Also, a bowl, a measuring cup, an ice cube tray, and a freezer is that it takes.

These are much healthier for the dog than treats one finds at the store that could be filled with junk.

Peanut butter is not only good for the dogs for its taste, but also because it is a good source of protein, healthy fats, vitamin B, niacin, and vitamin E.

However, avoid giving the dog peanut butter that contains an artificial sweetener called xylitol.

Another healthy food for the friendly pet is the banana. The fruit provides the dog with potassium, manganese, vitamin B6, vitamin C, fiber, biotin, and copper.

Another positive is that they are both low in sodium and cholesterol.

A word of caution though, bananas have a lot of sugars and they should only be given as treats and not part of their regular diet.

Also, check with a veterinarian to make sure the ingredients are suitable for the dog.

To make these frozen treats, one needs two overripe bananas, one cup of Greek yogurt, and ½ cup peanut butter.

To make them:

Mash up the bananas until they are completely mashed up and smooth.

Microwave peanut butter for about 15 seconds. This makes it easy to measure out.

Mix the peanut butter with the mashed bananas.

Now mix Greek yogurt and make sure everything is blended well.

Pour the mix into an ice cube mold and let it freeze overnight.

The cool treats are ready to be served to the dog. The rest can be stored in an airtight container and put back in the freezer.

The dogs will absolutely love this healthy and delicious frozen snack on a hot summer day.
