When the weather turns hot, we crave cold things like ice cream and ice cold lemonade. What about your dogs?
Our newest puppy loves ice cubes, and I can’t wait to start making them Frozen Dog Treats this summer like these new Homemade Frozen Watermelon Dog Treats we are showcasing this post.
The Frosty Paws you buy at the store are not only expensive but full of calories because they are pretty large in size. Your pup does not need that big of a treat to cool off, so we have chosen to make smaller frosty dog treats that cost a fraction of the price of the store bought ones.
6 Homemade Frozen Yogurt Dog Treats To Make This Summer
Watermelon Yogurt Dog Treats
Humans love a cold piece of watermelon on a warm day, so why wouldn’t your dog too? Make these Frozen Watermelon Yogurt Dog Treats in seconds and watch your dog drool for more.
The answer is yes, with a couple of precautions. Make sure you have removed all the seeds. It’s easy if you buy a seedless watermelon. Do not allow them to eat the rind either.
Watermelon is low in calories and packed with nutrients—vitamins A, B6, and C, and potassium.
Whenever you buy a watermelon for your family, set aside a few pieces to make these frozen watermelon treats for your dog.
How to make Homemade Watermelon Dog Treats
Frost Paws Ingredients
- Yogurt (optional)
Simply chop up watermelon and add the pieces to the blender.
Add a little water and puree until smooth.
Add a dollop of Greek yogurt to the bottoms of your ice cube trays and tap the mold until it is even.
Place the trays on a cookie sheet that will fit in your freezer for ease of movement.
Fill the rest of the molds with the watermelon puree until full.
Freeze until firm for at least 4 hours.
Unmold the treats and serve one to your pup; the treats are easily preserved by placing the rest in a zipper bag.
