Scoop half of your yogurt/banana mixture into your cup. Spoon half of your peanut butter on top of that. Smooth it out and swirl it into your yogurt mixture. Don't mix it in fully, just a small swirl will do. Repeat this with the rest of your yogurt and peanut butter.

4. Top it

Place your dog treat on top of your final layer of peanut butter. Place your dome lid on your ice cream cup.
