Frozen Nutty Yoghurt

This is the ideal summertime doggy treat – and it’s pretty good health-wise as well.

Yoghurt is basically milk that has had the sugar converted to lactic acid by bacteria, and it’s these bacteria which give yoghurt its healthy properties. It’s full of calcium for strong bones, good quality protein, and vitamins A and B.

The peanut butter is high in fat, but dogs do need fat as it contains lots of essential fatty acids as well as energy. This treat is really ideal for working or active dogs who’ve been out in the hot summer burning off lots of energy.

 

You will need:

• A large pot of plain live yoghurt

• 4 dessert spoons of natural organic peanut butter

3.  Place these on a tray and freeze them.

4.  To serve, simply whip one out of the freezer when you come in, and turn it out into the dog’s bowl.
