Delicious frozen treats
This recipe was only made with dog and human-friendly ingredients. However, if your pooch is vulnerable in any way (is older, has a chronic illness, etc), double-check with a vet before making changes to their diet.
Total preparation time: 5 minutes (excluding freezing time)

Wamiz tip: Save popsicle sticks from other ice creams you’ve had, and use them to hold these treats up - for you or for your dog! Their consistency is quite soft, so it shouldn’t be difficult to place a popsicle stick inside, even once they’re frozen.
Nutritionist’s tip: Make sure you use dog-friendly peanut butter, i.e. without xylitol. Feed the treats straight out of the freezer, don’t unfreeze then refreeze them.
Suitable for cats: Yes.
