Spoil your pooch with Chicken Ice Cream: a dairy free frozen dog treat recipe is better than store bought, easy to make & guaranteed to drive your dog wild.
. . .
In 2011, I bought an ice cream machine.
The Stuff (aka Ingredients)
- 2 cups cooked chicken, diced small and frozen
- 1 cup low-fat, low-sodium, onion free chicken stock
- Optional: Veggie puree as a doggy sundae topping
How We Do It (Instructions)
Place frozen, diced chicken in a blender, food processor or (our fav) the Magic Bullet*. Slowly add as much stock as needed to make a thick, smooth paste.
Option 1: Place chicken paste in ice cream machine and turn on. Allow chicken "ice cream" to churn, until it firms up, approx. 10 - 15 min. Make sure you frequently scrape down the edges of the bowl to ensure it doesn't freeze hard to the edge.
Option 2: Place ice cream in a container and place in freezer. Allow to set for half hour, then remove from freezer and blend. Return mix to freezer. Repeat every half hour until ice cream is firm enough to scoop.
Scoop into a dish. We like it fancy, so the dogs have their own ice cream cups, but hey, use whatever bowl floats your boat.
If you want to be all sorts of fancy, serve with veggie puree and crushed liver treats to make a doggy sundae.
