Do you have a dog? Don’t you just love them?! Well, my dog and I are going to be celebrating our third year of being best friends, this year! To add to the celebration I thought that I might make him something tasty. This doggy ice cream fits the bill. Not only is it wonderfully delicious for dogs but it is also very healthy for them. The main ingredient is raw goat milk, which has load of healthy things in it including: digestive enzymes, electrolytes, and loads of vitamins and minerals! Plus, it is more digestible then cow’s milk for dogs. It’s a great ice cream ingredient and Welly loves it!
The recipe starts with raw goat milk. Now, I know what you are asking “where do I find raw goat milk?” I found mine at Pet Supplies “Plus.” It comes frozen so you have to let it thaw out before you can use it.
The next ingredient, one that almost all dogs love, is peanut butter.
In a large bowl whisk the goat milk and peanut butter together until well combined.
Pour this into your ice cream maker and freeze according to manufacture’s directions.
While your ice cream is freezing you can prepare any extra mix-ins that you think you may want. I used about 3 ounces of raw liver, which is also very healthy for dogs. Other possible mix-ins could be raw or cooked meat bits, a ripple of canned dog food, or possible healthy dog treats. Just use whatever you think your dog will enjoy and is good for him.
Once your ice cream is frozen, just stir in your mix-ins.
You can either freeze the ice cream for now or let your furry friend try some, and freeze the leftovers.
Now, you have a tasty and very healthy ice cream treat for your best friend!
