Easy Peanut Butter “Pupsicle” Frozen Dog Treats

Treat your dog to a homemade frozen peanut butter dog treat! These “pupsicles” are easy to make with just 4 ingredients.


Calvin has been loving these peanut butter, yogurt, and banana “pupsicles” this summer, so I thought it was time for a new post on homemade dog treats.


Here’s the reason I love making these frozen dog treats:

they’re so simple and quick to make.

These peanut butter treats:

  • have only four ingredients
  • take only about ten minutes to throw together.


These pupsicles are made in ice-cube trays, so they’re also perfectly portioned for a little treat.

Calvin is a sweet and loyal pet who brings smiles every day, so it’s nice to make him a healthy homemade treat that I know he’ll enjoy.


There’s also one hilarious benefit to making these peanut butter pupsicles.

Since they’re frozen, these treats force Cal to slow down and actually taste his food.

It’s cute to watch him actually enjoy the flavor of a treat for once, rather than swallowing it whole.

Another summer treat that Calvin adores?


How I discovered this:

After begging and crying for a taste of the watermelon we were eating, Chris and I let him try a small slice.

Of course he loved it.

This little beagle has an enormous appetite!


He’s also become an expert disappearing artist.

Chris and I have started referring to this habit as “Where’s Caldo?” (after the “Where’s Waldo” books)

Not too long ago, we all went on a short hike…


…Only later did I notice that Cal snuck into some of my snapshots of the hike without my noticing.

Where’s Caldo?


He found his way into my photo of our trip to the coast too (not hard to spot him here).


Since Cal is not into responding immediately when we call him (unless there are treats on the table), I’ve become used to playing the game of “Where’s Caldo?” around the house as well.

I actually searched the house top to bottom the first time Cal discovered this hiding place.

Where’s Caldo?


I finally heard a sigh and found him curled up in between the pillows.


This is now a favorite sleeping spot for Cal.


He comes out when he’s ready.


And here’s another.

Where’s Caldo?

When Cal-Bean first came home with us as a puppy, I assumed he’d sleep in a dog bed on the floor of our bedroom.

That dog bed is untouched and stored in the basement …


…because Calvin had a better idea: sleeping under the heavy blanket at the foot of the bed.


For all the laughter and amusement he brings, how could I not want to make him some homemade treats every now and again?


It’s nice to return some of the happiness he brings!
