During hot weather many people are asking, can dogs eat ice cream? Traditional ice cream contains dairy products and sugar, neither of which are good for your dog.

Using the Dessert Bullet you can share a frozen treat with your dog! When I want to share a frozen treat with Freckles and Dixie, I get out my Dessert Bullet.

I can make frozen dairy free desserts using dog friendly fruits, without adding the dairy products and sugar in traditional ice cream.

How Does It Work?

Cut the fruit of your dog’s choice into pieces that will fit through the feed tube and place the pieces in a single layer on wax paper on top of a cookie sheet. Freeze for one hour then place the pieces in a freezer bag. Freeze the fruit for at least four hours before using.

Tip: Buy fresh fruit when it is on sale at your local store. You can slice it and freeze it until you are ready to use.

Remove the fruit pieces from your freezer and allow to thaw for about 10 minutes. Place a bowl under the spout of your Dessert Bullet to collect the frozen treat. Place the frozen fruit pieces into the feed tube and press the button to start making the dessert.

Using the pusher, push the fruit down into the tube. For an ice cream consistency, mix in bananas. Without bananas, it will be a sherbet consistency. You can also freeze Greek yogurt by the spoonful and add in with the fruit for a creamy consistency.

Freckles loves cooling off with a yummy treat made from bananas and strawberries or blueberries together.

Dixie prefers to have a pineapple and banana frozen treat, which I also enjoy with a little shredded coconut added to the mixture.
