It is HOT right now and breaking out the ice cream is always tempting... But just because you can enjoy your favourite treat on a hot day doesn't always make it the best choice for your pup. Store bought ice creams tend to be loaded with sugars and unnatural ingredients that won't sit well with your dog (and don't even get us started on the dangers of chocolate...) so the MaxCare Doggo's thought it would be a good idea to test out some recipes for doggy ice cream, we found on the web, and let you know which ones were the best!
So... Here are the top 5 Doggy Ice Cream recipes the MaxCare pups found online just for your dog (and maybe you too!)
***Please note that a lot of these recipes contain peanut butter. Along with typical peanut allergies that some dogs and humans may have... Low sugar and no sugar peanut butter may contain Xylitol which is poisonous to Dogs and Cats. Please consult all ingredient lists you use and ensure they are safe for your dog before giving them a treat.***
This recipe consists of three ingredients and tastes AMAZING! Plus, pumpkin is great for your dog's stomach and digestive systems. It's silly simple to make and the MaxCare puppies loved it... If it's a scorcher out and you want to give this one a try we definitely recommend it!
Yes you heard us right... PB&J Ice Cream for you dog (and probably yourself as well). This easy to make recipe combines four household ingredients to make a wonderful treat for your puppy. Just be sure to not use actual jelly due to the high sugar content and other preservatives.
You may notice bananas becoming a common trend in these recipes... Banana is a high source of potassium and vitamin C which is very healthy for your dog. Just be sure you don't over do it... Too much of any food will be unhealthy for your dog and most won't regulate their eating when offered something tasty.
Did somebody say apples? That's right, apples are a great snack for dogs. They are high in Vitamins A and C along with Fibre. Plus, they're low in protein and fat which makes them an excellent choice for senior doggos! This recipe was definitely a favourite for the humans making it too... Such a tasty combination!
This was DEFINITELY the winner with the MaxCare puppies... No doubt about it the bacon really put this ice cream over the edge for the dogs! For the humans, not so much.
The recipe does say that bacon bits are optional, but what fun would that be? If you are going to whip this up for you puppy just be sure to save yourself a couple pieces of bacon on the side.
Unless you're on the adventurous side! Bacon and peanut butter tastes great for some...
So there you have it... These are the top five recipes we could find for Doggy Ice Cream after scouring the internet. We would highly recommend getting one of these prepped for your puppy while we work through the summer heat! Best of all, you'll get a great snack too (depending on which recipe you choose).

Just like humans, kittens don't know how to behave right away. In fact, they're typically known for getting into trouble because of their curiosity, Learn more about dealing with common kitten behaviour on https://www.maxcare.pet/post/common-kitten-behaviours-dealing-with-them
