Freeze for 1-2 hours.
Pro-tip: When this ice cream is frozen solid, it’s difficult to scoop. You may need to let it sit at room temperature for 10-15 minutes or until it becomes easy to scoop. (I have tested this with both of my dogs when it was frozen solid and when it was softer, and they liked it both times. The softness really depends on your preference)

Frequently Asked Questions

How do I store Dog Ice Cream?

Freeze the ice cream in an airtight container for 2-3 months. I recommend storing some ice cream in individual cups of some sort. Then, when you are ready to give some to your dog, take out one and let your dog go to town. 

Can my dog eat all of these ingredients?

Yes. All of the ingredients in this Doggy Ice Cream are totally safe for your pet. Here’s a breakdown.

Plain Greek yogurt is actually a healthy food for your dogs, because it has probiotics and live cultures. Choosing plain over other flavors is better because it has less lactose. 

Dogs love peanut butter, and they can definitely eat it as long as it does not contain xylitol, which is toxic to dogs. You do want to be careful to not give your dog too much peanut butter, as it has a high fat content.

Dogs can handle honey in small amounts. Don’t give your dog more than 1 teaspoon of honey a day, especially if it’s a small dog. If you use raw honey, your best option, puppies less than a year old should not eat it because of bacterial spores that could be in it. 

Cinnamon is non-toxic to dogs and has a lot of health benefits. The only caution with cinnamon is that if given in large amounts, it can cause irritation. The amount in this recipe is perfectly safe and delicious.

      1. The good news is cinnamon is not toxic to dogs and holds some pretty amazing health benefits when given in proper amounts. But that’s not to say anything with cinnamon is okay to offer your pleading-eyed canine begging for a taste of your cinnamon scone
