If you are looking for a way to help your Dog to beat the heat then try this recipe from 'The Dog Food Dude'. Our Basset Hound loved them! This recipe has been reproduced thanks to the kind Permission of Andrews McMeel Publishing, LLC. They have also give us a copy to giveaway!

Peanut Butter Banana Ice 'cream' (makes 12 cubes)

Author note: The Molasses is included not only to sweeten the Ice 'Cream' a bit but also to provide important nutrients like Calcium, Iron, Magnesium and Potassium. Be Sure to buy Blackstrap Molasses to ensure that it contains the most important Vitamins and Mineral; other forms of Molasses are mostly just sugars. The Peanut Butter in this Ice Cream increases the fat content, so it is higher in calories. Please note the reduced feeding amounts. For older dogs with sensitive months, allow the frozen cubes to thaw for a few minutes before feeding.

1/2 Ripe Banana
1 Cup plain Low fat Yogurt.
2 Tablespoons Peanut Butter (Natural style Preferred)
2 Tablespoons Blackstrap Molasses

Mash the Banana well in a medium bowl. Add all of the remaining ingredients and stir until smooth. Spoon into an ice cube tray and freeze 4 - 6 hours. Allowance Per Day (by dog weight): 10-20lb -1 cube, 40lb -2 Cubes, 60lb -3 cubes, 80lb -4 cubes.
