What to do, what to do with. . .VERY ripe bananas. Most people would make banana bread. Which I have also done in the past, but this time I opted for creating some delicious treats for our beautiful golden retriever, Belle. Banana Pup Pops! Also known as pupsicles or popsicles for dogs. No, no that’s still not quite right. They’re more like pudding pops for dogs. Yep, I’m feeling better about this now.

Let me tell you what. If you have a furry family member in your home that adores their treats, well, then, you’ve come to the right place. These pup pops will have your pet performing, behaving, doing whatever it needs to do to sink their teeth into one of these babies. Trust me. You’re going to see evidence of the deliciousness in a few seconds.

So, making the pops is SUPER easy. All you need is a blender or mini food processor to blend up the ingredients. THREE ingredients – count them, 3. Plain yogurt, banana and peanut butter. Simple? I’d say. Let’s get on to the next step.

You know those little paper cups you use for drinking and rinsing your mouth after brushing your teeth in the bathroom? Yep, those – the little 3 ounce ones.

You’re going to need 4 of those. I just happened to have some animal-themed ones I use for the kids in our house. Perfect.

    1. After blending the yogurt, banana and peanut butter, fill your four cups a little over 3/4 full – just leave a little room at the top.
    2. Position a rawhide twist into the center of each pop. If you don’t like giving your dog rawhide, you could always use a peanut butter stick. Place the cups in the freezer for at least 4 hours.
    3. When pops are frozen, unwrap the paper cup from the pop.
    4. Share with your pup!

Wanna’ see what happened when I shared a pop with Belle? Did I have one happy pup on my hands! Do you remember the Tootsie Pop slogan, “How many licks does it take to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop?” That’s what came to mind when feeding Belle her treat. LOL She licked that pop like nobody’s business and then finished strong with chewing up the rawhide stick, too! Our little Belle. She’s so much fun!

I hope you enjoy making these for your dog, too. They’re going to love you for it. I promise!

Comments

  1. Your dog is adorable!! Mine will absolutely love these (I love that they’re easy to make)! I always let my dog lick the ice cream bowl, so to have her own treat will be amazing!

    • Thank you, Patricia! I’m sure she would enjoy them! And I’m sure she’ll still expect to have dibs on your ice cream bowl with or without treats of her own!

  2. WOW! Scout would LOVE these! We love homemade pup treats at our house, we will have to try these asap!

  3. What a fun idea! I’m not sure who would enjoy this more, our dog or the menagerie who would without a doubt want to help make them!

    • That’s the best part! Getting the rest of the family involved! My kiddos love to hold the treats for Belle while she enjoys them!

  4. What a great idea! I need to show this to my daughter so she can make them for her doggie friends.

  5. If I had a pup, I would for sure make them these little treats!

  6. What an amazing recipe! Our dog always watches us with bug cute eyes when we eat Popsicles, and wants a bite. this recipe is perfect for her! 🙂

  7. Can’t wait to make these and I Loooove the photo! Hilarious! 💗

    I make these with fat free vanilla yogurt, Peanut butter, banana baby food, and a touch of cinnamon. But I think the banana pieces would add more texture and I’ll do that from now on. My dogs love these treats. And if you don’t have the rawhide, use a dog biscuit….

  9. Any thoughts on anything that I could use instead of yogurt? My mastiff is allergic to milk…

    • Hi Brenda, you could try coconut cream, maybe. Allow a can of full-fat coconut milk to settle – about 30 minutes. The coconut cream will rise to the top and can easily be skimmed off to use for the pup pops. Let me know if you try it!

    I can’t wait to get back home & try these on my three pups. One of them is a Pyr – is that what yours is, too? the noses are so similar!!! We ALWAYS have leftoverly ripe bananas & I get tired of banana bread. Thank you for your recipe!
