Step 1: Have You.....

First off, have you ever gone into the freezer isle at the super market, looking for a cool treat for your poor, hot, ever loving dog, seen the prices, and dumped the idea down the drain? Well, I've been there, done that. This doggy ice cream will barely cost you over 2$, and so without further adieu, let us begin!

Step 2: Lets Make!

Ok, so like I said earlier, 2$ in other words, Ingredients) 1 can of your dogs favorite gravy dog food, Milk, That's it. Really. Utensils) Bowl, Fork, Cupcake pan (mini or standard, depending on your dogs size, I just used a cake pan with wrappers, but cupcake pans are easier), Cupcake wrappers (same size as your pan)

Step 3: The How To

Mix your whole can of dog food with about half of the dog food can filled with milk. Mix well until milk has blended with gravy. Pour into wrapper lined cupcake pans and freeze until solid! To serve, peel away wrapper and let your doggy dig in! I suppose you could substitute cat food for dog food if you want to feed this to a cat, tell me if it works for cats too. PLEASE comment! Enjoy!
<p>I used to make banana pops for my westy and doxie. Slice a banana and freeze until hard. Then while they are in the freezer melt pure carob in a double boiler so it wont burn for about 5 minutes or until melted. In about 30-45 minutes take them out and cut 1-2 inch pieces and dip in carob. Return to freezer in a tight container and freeze for 10 more mins. I call them banana &quot;PUPS&quot;</p><p>People can enjoy them too! ENJOY................................Pamela</p>
You are so welcome! Great idea for banana, I'll have to try it. I prob. Shouldn't have put cat cream too, since I just found out cats are naturally lactose intolerant (who would have guessed?) :-) but in the case of soy milk, I think I'll take cows milk. But, that is just my opinion. Soy just doesn't seem too safe to me. However, at my local super market, I have found this cool stuff for cats and dogs called cats sip. Its lactose free milk for lactose intolerant dogs and cats.<br/>It's also available at petco. Of course, this changes the price, so if the can of dog food is $.69, and the cat sip is $1.59, that's $2.28, still not bad, considering that you are in control of what goes into it. Thanks for commenting!!!
<p>Cat Sip is an excellent substitution, as it is made with the vitamins and nutrients cats/kittens need without the lactose. I get that for my 9 week olds and they take it in just fine. I would definitely have to try to make this for them!</p>
Lactose free milk should be used not regular milk. It costs about $3 for 1/2 gallon so it's not cheap but you could make a bunch of these and freeze them in batches. Cats and dogs are lactose intolerant and regular milk can cause diarrhea. If I made these I'd freeze them in ice cube trays then throw them in Ziplocs to keep them. Nice idea though.
I love the idea of doggy ice cream! And you're right...it's soooo expensive in the stores. I'm just not 100% sure how good of an idea it is to give dogs cows milk. I know it's small quantities, but I would think about using soy milk instead?! And if you have an overweight dog, try adding other stuff to the milk instead of canned food - like low salt chicken broth (or homemade broth!). Even peanut butter and banana mush would be great! Lots of instrctables on ice cube sized treats, but for bigger dogs, the cupcake sized treats are perfect! Thanks for sharing!
Hoorah for weiners!!!! Glad they liked it!
I made this yesterday & all my weiners LOVED it! ♥♥♥♥♥
Please tell me what u think! I know personally that dogs love this!
