Today I honestly feel horrible – I have finally managed to get whatever bug the kids have had for the last week and a half. After I type this up I’m headed to bed for a while.
We have a big weekend coming up – we are going to a family birthday party on Saturday and then having Tool & Zoe’s big birthday celebration on Sunday. Tool loves turkey so we are having a full on turkey dinner to celebrate him! I always make the dogs homemade doggie ice cream (like Frosty Paws) for their birthdays. Today the kids and I whipped it up so it would be frozen and ready to go.
- 1 ripe banana
- 2 tbs peanut butter
- 2 tbs honey
- 32 oz plain yogurt
We used my stand mixer to whip this up. First Buddy put the ripe banana in and mashed it up.
Next I added the peanut butter and honey and mixed it in. Finally the kids and I added the yogurt and blended until smooth.
I used mini muffin tins to freeze the ice cream into individual sized treats. I also decided to make some that were bigger in my Mickey Mouse silicone baking tray. I sprayed the tins to help ensure the ice cream will pop out instead of stick. DO NOT USE MUFFIN TINS! I thought the ice creams would be cute like this but they are very hard to get out. I have previously used ice cube trays and you can pop them right out – this is what I would recommend! The silicone baking trays work well too.
I used my small pampered chef cookie scoop and filled the tins. Don’t I have the cutest helpers??
After the tins were filled I moved them to the freezer. The whole time we were working the dogs were in the kitchen. They both LOVE peanut butter. Now every time I open the freezer Tool sticks his head in to sniff.
So now we are one step closer to party ready for an awesome puppy birthday party! I hope this bug moves quickly for me – but if you don’t see anymore posts for a few days you will know why. I’m off to bed!
