"Cake" Pops for Pups

Since it was Mr. Macintosh's 2nd birthday this past weekend, I wanted to make him an extra special birthday treat.

And so the pup pops were born--a dog-friendly version of cake pops!

I kept it pretty simple since it was an experiment, but this recipe could definitely be tweaked according to a dog's diet or preferences!

Start with a slab of wet dog food--so appetizing...!

Add a little flour and mashed banana to make a nice, moldable mix.

Roll the mixture into little balls.

Stick them with an edible doggie stick treat.

Freeze them until they are nice and firm.

Swirled them around in melted peanut butter.

Or plain yogurt.

Add a few embellishments like kibble or grated carrots.

Freeze until ready to eat!

What a simple little treat to spoil the furry ones!
(Makes around 4-6 pops--depending on size)
  • 3.5 oz of wet dog food
  • 1/2 cup unbleached flour (white, whole wheat, or other kind of flour)
  • 1/2 banana (mashed)
  • Doggie treat sticks
  • 1/4 cup of peanut butter or plain yogurt for coating (it may be a little more or less)
Mix wet dog food, flour, and banana until a moist mixture is formed. Form mixture into 4-6 balls. Carefully place treat stick into the the balls and then freeze until hard. Once hard, melt peanut butter and dip/swirl the pop in it until lightly coated. Do the same with the yogurt (don't melt the yogurt, though!).
Decorate with kibble or grated carrots (or other doggie favorites). Freeze until ready to eat!
(ps. I'm not a dog nutritionist or anything, but I would recommend feeding them sparingly to your pup).

Here's Mac enjoying his birthday treat!
