Dog Ice Cream Recipe
Healthy Vanilla Doggie Ice Cream Recipe That You Can Share!
Dexter The Dog loves his doggie ice cream! When Dexter and I are on one of our dog-friendly vacations or dog-friendly outings, we like to take a trip to a local ice cream parlor. It’s been a tradition for us for many years. Although, I only give him about 2 tablespoons of ice cream, I know this is not a healthy dog treat. In fact, typical ice cream shop’s ingredients not only include a lot of sugar and dairy, but also guar gum, polysorbate 80, and artificial flavors. That’s not good.
In the past, I’ve tried giving Dexter one of his healthy frozen treats that he loves, but during our ice cream trips, he doesn’t want anything to do with it. Nope, he wants “real” ice cream. So, I set out to make Dexter a healthy dog ice cream recipe that he would not only enjoy, but I could feel good about giving him. But would I fool the pooch?
Why, yes, I did!
His healthy dog ice cream fooled him. I did do a little routine to help with my ice cream trick. Instead of filling his hollow toy with his doggie ice cream, I place his homemade dog ice cream in a white foam cup, went to the ice cream counter, returned, then filled up his toy. Hahaha
A little background on the ingredients used in this healthy dog treat recipe. Goat milk is easier to digest than cow’s milk, and actually aids in irritable bowel disease, digestion, and diarrhea! It is loaded with vitamins, minerals, enzymes, probiotics, protein, and fatty acids. High in vitamin A, which has cancer-fighting properties. Choose an organic, raw goat milk for the best nutritional benefits. Almonds contain monounsaturated fats which have been found to help reduce the risk of heart disease. Almonds also are rich in calcium and amino acids, and also act as a laxative and lubricate intestines, making it a good choice to naturally cure constipation.
