Want to help your pup cool down amidst the unrelenting hot weather? These frozen treats will do the trick!
There’s no reason your beloved pooch can’t enjoy a little “ice cream” every now and then. Yoghurt popsicles, or “pupsicles” as they may also be called, are fantastic alternatives for your fur kid!
Yoghurt — packed with calcium and protein and an aid for digestion — makes a great base for the treat. Throw some fresh berries (great source of vitamins) into the mix and your pooch can enjoy something cool, sweet and healthy in no time.
1 cup plain, non-fat yoghurt ¼ cup fresh blueberries 2 cups fresh strawberries 1 banana, peeled ½ cucumber, peeled
1. Blend all the ingredients together in a blender to a smooth consistency.
2. Pour the mixture into popsicle trays or ice cube trays and freeze until solid.
3. Pop the frozen treats out of the trays and they are ready to serve!
Experiment with different fruits and vegetables, and in different portions, to find a concoction that best suits your dog’s (and your) taste. You can use disposable plastic cups or ice cube trays to freeze your mixture in as well!
