So, the weather is getting warmer. Days brighter and the sunlight lasting longer. Time for cleaning up the yard, organizing closets and getting ready for summer, right?
When the days are warmer, we all look for something cold, refreshing and/or frozen to cool us down. For us humans, that could be a tall glass of ice water, sweet tea, soda, juice, alcohol, ice cream, popsicle or another form of a frozen treat.
But what about our furry family members? For us, what about Shadow? She is our just over 100 pound Alaskan Malamute and is almost 2 years old. If you’re familiar with the breed, then you know that they have lots of fur and the heat gets to them just as they do us.
We’ve been very lucky with Shadow as she is not a picky eater. Typically, we’ll take a big metal bowl, fill it about 3/4 of the way with water and freeze it. Then we put the big ice cube outside for her on a warm day. She’ll lick it, kick it around and play with it.
But for something different, I like making her these super easy frozen treats. I call them “Pawters”
It’s just 3 ingredients:
1c coconut oil
1c peanut butter
Mix and melt everything in a pot. Then pour into the molds.
Place mold on a cookie sheet and put into the freezer. Allow to freeze for at least 4 hours. Once completely frozen, pop the treats out of the molds and store in an airtight container in the refrigerator or freezer.
Your pup will sure be thankful for this cool treat on a warm day. Plus the coconut oil is good for them!
