It's Hot!

Maybe the K99 Ice Cream Van will stop by!

There is a new K99 Ice cream Van in London. It serves frozen treats exclusively for dogs. Your four-legged friends can choose between two tasty flavors: "Dog Eat Hog World," which is gammon and chicken sorbet topped with a biscuit and served in a cone; or "Canine Cookie Crunch," which is a combination of mixed dog biscuits and ice cream.

Now most of us don't have a K99 Ice Cream van that come by our house. That's why I'm adding these easy to make doggie ice cream recipes. 

Frosty Paw Ice Cream
32 oz. plain yogurt
1 mashed banana
2 T peanut butter
2 T honey

It’s true dairy products aren’t good for dogs, but yogurt contains much less lactase than regular milk and the live cultures are great for your dog’s digestive system. This dog ice cream recipe is delicious and good for your pet!

1. Mix all these ingredients in your blender, then dump into ice cube trays, paper cups, or even a kong toy to freeze and serve.

2. If you want to go all out for your mutt you can freeze these homemade frosty paws just like you would homemade ice cream. A salt-less automatic ice cream maker makes this as easy as using any other appliance in your home and the frosty paws will be ready to serve in 10 minutes.

For paw shapes:
Take the mostly frozen dog ice cream product of number two and spread it 1” to 1½” thick on wax paper. Freeze for five minutes and then remove dog ice cream from freezer. Next, use a paw shaped cookie cutter to cut a paw shaped “frosty paws”, remove ice cream around edges, and return paw shapes to the freezer to freeze solid. NOTE: This can also be made with baby meat instead of the fruit and peanut butter.

Pumpkin Pops for Pups
1 (1.5 oz) Sugar Free Instant Vanilla Pudding Mix
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 cup milk, low or fat free
1 (15 oz) can pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)

Whisk the vanilla pudding mix, pumpkin pie spice, and milk together until dissolved. Approximately 2 minutes.Fold, or gently stir in the pumpkin puree.Scoop pumpkin pudding into small paper cups, small plastic cups, or a plastic Popsicle mold.Place in freezer, and let freeze completely, about 3 hours.Take out desired serving size and let sit on counter for 5 minutes. Then release from the mold and serve.

If frozen this dog ice cream recipe will last for 3 months. If kept in the refrigerator, as a pudding, it will keep fresh for one week.

2 cups low salt beef or chicken broth
2/3 cup water
2 or 3 ice cube trays
Small rawhide sticks

Mix water with beef or chicken broth and pour into ice cube trays. Place in freezer and serve cold. Add a rawhide stick halfway through the freezing. This recipe is quick, easy, and fun. It's probably best to serve this dish outside.


  1. This is awesome! So many things I wish I could spoil my dogs with :)

  2. This is genius! We don't have a K99 ice cream truck in America (that I know of), and it sure hot & sticky here. Especially for my Norwegian Elk-hound. I cannot wait to try out these recipes. Thanks so much for sharing!

  3. That your sharing all the great receipes. No doggy ice cream trucks here in New Hampshire.

  4. OMG - this is great! My Bleecker is salivating as I read it to her...

  5. Love the K99 Van and thanks so much for the recipes for those of us who will never see one! ;-)
