Easy dog lollies

Looks like summer is on it’s way, time to cool of those dogs!

This is a super easy way of making a cool (and healthy) treat for your pup to have on a warm day. Tilly loves her fruit and veggies, so this is a perfect way of combining her favorites.

Ingredients: 

  • Blueberries
  • Apple
  • Carrot
  • Banana
  • Broccoli
  • Peas

Both blueberries and peas are a great source of antioxidants, along with fiber and iron.

Things to avoid include: Onions, most nuts, grapes/raisins, cherries. If you have any concern about what to feed your dog, consult with your vet.

Method:

  • Chop up fruits + veggies into small sized pieces (excluding blueberries and peas).
  • Fill your ice cube or lolly mold half way up with your fruits and veggies.
  • Fill with water.
  • Freeze!
  • Once frozen, take the frozen treats out of the ice cube tray and put into a bag to free up space in your freezer.

Paw print ice cube molds, I couldn’t resist!

I’ve found using large ice cube trays to be the most suitable. If you’re using a lolly mold, then make sure to supervise your dog when eating.

Excuse the broccoli, I managed to get it everywhere!

I think they turned out rather well, Tilly gives it her approval, she’s all set for the summer!

Poodle approved!

If your dog isn’t such a fan of the healthy stuff, try adding some dried meat treats in with the veggies to encourage them to have a nibble.

What’s your pooches favourite frozen snack?
