July is National Ice Cream month…….WOW, July just keeps getting better and better Pet Treater fans!
In 1984, President Ronald Reagan designated July as National Ice Cream Month; also, the third Sunday of the month he designated as National Ice Cream Day. What a smart guy!
He recognized ice cream as a fun and nutritious food (we are unsure how nutritious it is…LOL) that is enjoyed by a full 90 percent of the nation’s population. And the dog population to be sure….we love our Puppy Cake Ice Cream mixes when we get them in our Pet Treater Dog Subscription boxes.

So we all know there are hundreds of fun and creative ways to make ice cream and put a fur baby spin on it! We found a fun and SIMPLE one that may interest you:
Even though a fall harvest seems far off, you can be sure that pumpkin is a successful hit any time of the year! Just ask Dog Tripper as they give us A VERY simple and tail waggin’ recipe for yummy pumpkin ice cream goodness:
Pumpkin Doggie Ice Cream Recipe
- 1 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 cup plain low-fat yogurt
- ½ cup organic peanut butter
- Combine all ingredients in blender then pour into ice cube trays.
- Freeze and serve frozen.
That is it! No kidding and your pup will LOVE ’em!
So for those sweet feline babies, let’s just keep it Au natural–fruit, fruit, and more fruit…frozen “ice cream cubes”!
- Take a fruit your kitty is known to love and slip it into your ice tray with some Cat-Sip® Real Milk Treat or something similar that is safe for your cat and that your Vet approves.
- Freeze it with the fruit inside it–pop it out into his or her bowl when completely frozen and voila, that simple–Ice Cream Cubes for your kitty!
- Be aware that pets can have a variety of fruits and veggies, safely. For your sweet kitty: apples, bananas, blueberries, mangoes, pears, strawberries, pineapple and many more are typically safe (always check with your vet if you are concerned or question if it is safe for your fur baby).
Remember July and the remaining summer months can get quite hot….if you are hot more than likely so is your fur baby, in fact with all that fur, they are probably WAY more hot.
Treat yourself and your pet and take advantage of National Ice Cream month–I know we will be!
