Pauli Pops

A friend told me a few years ago that she makes something like this for her dogs. I have made them since, but I don’t think I ever make it exactly the same way each time. The only constant is yogurt. Otherwise, things change. For this time I used:

  • 3 cups plain lowfat yogurt (1 large)
  • 1 jar meat baby food
  • 1 large banana
  • 8 to 10 small cups (I use the Glad Mini Round — you could even use something like Dixie Cups and put plastic wrap over the top)

Put yogurt, banana and baby food into a blender and blend until smoothly combined.   Pour into containers.  Put on lids (or cover with plastic wrap) and place in the freezer.  It takes a couple of hours to freeze.

filled containers

Once they are frozen solid, take one out and give it to your dog, remove the lid or covering, set it down and watch the fun begin.   MONITOR YOUR DOG!!!   If you have any concern that your dog will eat the container I recommend you pop it out into a bowl.  It’s not difficult, just run a little warm water over it for a few seconds.

Pauli is so crazy about these she gets really excited when she sees them come out of the freezer!  It keeps here busy for about 10 minutes.  Then she thinks she needs another.  🙂

    This is fantastic Susie!
    I have never ever seen a recipe for something like this. My dogs are going to be very happy, very soon! Thank you SO much for sharing this here!

      It’s really easy and you can change things around. My only caution is that some fruits or vegetables might cause stomach upset, so you should try small amounts initially.

    Hey, leave out the baby food and that would be a great treat for my lunch :).

    • Susie says:

      I admit, I tasted it before I froze it. It wasn’t all that bad, altho it would taste much better without the meat. But it freezes really hard, so it would be hard for you to eat unless you put a stick in it. Then you got a popsicle!

    What a great idea for these hot Texas summers!

      I bet China would love them! Just be sure she won’t eat the container the first time. Pauli just eats the frozen yogurt part and then leaves the container for me to wash.
