Peanut Butter-Banana Pupsicles!
32-ounce plain or Greek yogurt
1 large ripe or overripe banana (peeled)
3-4 tablespoons peanut butter (no Xylitol – it’s a natural sugar substitute that’s toxic to dogs)
Put all ingredients into a food processor. Mix well, occasionally scraping down the sides so there are no chunks of banana or peanut butter. Pour the mixture into silicon molds or 4-ounce lidded paper cups. Freeze 4 hours or more depending upon the size of your mold.
