Tips & Techniques

  • Peanut Butter - If you use natural peanut butter, as the recipe calls for, it will be cold from the refrigerator. You will need to warm it up first, before adding it to the smoothie. Let the jar sit on the counter while you measure the other ingredients. Or, measure the amount and warm it in the microwave for 5 seconds.
  • Berries - Substitute other berries, like strawberry, raspberry or a mixed variety. Or, if fresh berries are not in season, you can use frozen berries.
  • Ice Cube Trays - You can find an endless variety of seasonal ice cube trays. Pictured above I used a heart shaped tray for my lovey-dovey taste testers. Match the tray to the season, or to the theme of your next dog party.
  • For Humans - Your two-legged family members may want a taste. These homemade dog treats are quite tart, so most humans may not care for it. Add sugar, honey, or other natural sweetener to taste, and you can enjoy these Peanut Butter and Jelly smoothie pops, too!
