Thanks Leane  - Sounds good.

I dont buy the frosty paws anymore.   I feed the hoodsie vanilla cups.   They are half the price of the frosty paws and just a cup of vanilla ice cream

However these are much better health wise (your recipe)

I've been using plain yogurt and they are both crazy about it.  I haven't tried the vanilla for them, I figure it'd probably be better for them to skip the sugar, and they don't seem to care.

Those are the pupsicles I make for Jack and Isa and they both scarf them down.  I also make some with just plain low-fat yogurt and pure pumpkin (equal parts) ~ they love them just as much.

Of course I think they think it's "people" food since it comes out of the freezer, but Isa walks around for the next five or ten minutes smacking her lips after she's had one.

The first time I made them I ended up giving some to a few friends with dogs because I had wayyyyy too many.  They came back with great reviews asking what was in them so they could make their own.
