The ice cream you and I enjoy as humans is not safe for dogs. Luckily creating one that is couldn’t be easier. You just have to be aware of digestive issues that your pup may suffer from if it consumes milk or dairy products.
Dairy products like milk or cheese are not toxic to dogs but many, like humans, have digestive issues and need ingredients that are lactose-free.

STEP THREE: Take a loaf pan and pour the mixture into the pan. You could also use an ice cube tray to make individual portions.
STEP FOUR: Freeze the ice cream mixture for at least one hour or until solid.
STEP FIVE: Serve up and watch your puppy enjoy his doggie ice cream.
