Besides all the rain we've been getting, it had been hot....well....not Florida hot....but unusally warm for our comfortable mountains. Normally, if we turn our A/C on more than twice a year....it's a record!'The husband' has taken to treating our dog with a frozen treat after their afternoon walk to cool her down. Black dog on black asphalt.....need I say more?
Those prepared frozen goodies are $$ and calorie filled....even our rescue dog needs to watch her weight. So I set about making our own. There are lots of recipes available online but after previewing many, I chose two ingredients...low fat peanut butter and no fat, no sodium chicken stock.
Using about 3 parts stock to 1 part peanut butter.....it was whirled in a food processor until well mixed. Small plastic cups with lids (found inexpensively online) fit into a muffin tin nicely to keep everything level and in place during the freezing process. Once frozen, the cups are stored in a large plastic bag in the freezer.
Sooty LOVES her treats!
