Recipe: Apple and Honey Ice Cream for Dogs

ice cream for dogs

Making your own doggy ice cream allows you to select your own ingredients, so you can choose things that you know your dog loves and aren’t toxic. You can also choose fresh, whole food ingredients that are safer and healthier than the artificial ingredients in commercial products, and make substitutions.


  • 1 cup low-fat plain yogurt
  • 1 apple (chopped)
  • 1 tbsp. raw honey


To make this ice cream, just add the yogurt, honey and apple to a food processor. Puree the mixture. Once it is smooth, just pour the mixture into ice cube trays and freeze until firm.

If you’re going to feed this treat to your pet on a regular basis, you can substitute other dog-friendly fruits and veggies. Some of my favorite substitutions include:

  • pumpkin
  • cranberries
  • blueberries
  • bananas
  • kale
  • spinach
