Beat the heat with frozen ‘pupsicle’ treats!!



Is it too hot outside for your doggies? Try these little frozen ‘pupsicle’ treats! 🙂

The first one we tried was frozen chicken broth cubes! The original recipe called for cooked ground beef with chicken broth poured over and then frozen.  However, I didn’t have any ground beef so I made a mini-muffin tray off half just frozen broth “cubes” and the other half I added a chewy treat stick to it.

I used mini muffin paper cups and poured the broth in.  Then simply let it freeze and -voila! Puppy slushies! They were happy!

The second recipe the dogs really loved it! I was a little skeptical because of the amo

unt of yogurt in the recipe but i tried to make that the smallest amount I could and I mean they really liked this treat! They are PB&J pops.  It is really cute to see them eat these and the recipe below I made made 2 medium pops which my 2 dogs shared one at a time rather than both at once.

There are some other great recipes I found but didn’t try including frozen banana peanut butter treats (http://www.food.com/recipe/frozen-banana-treats-for-do

gs-397365)

or as Bark Magazine suggested “you can mix together some peanut butter, banana, water (or even coconut/almond milk or yogurt)… On the savory side, use salt-free chicken stock with a little chicken meat with a few chopped herbs. Or for the fruit lovers, you can use blueberries or chopped berries and a little mint—this is great with a yogurt base.”  Then just freeze them and remove out of tray for a treat!
