On a hot summer day, there is nothing better than a nice cool popsicle to beat the heat. The only problem is that store bought popsicles are pumped full of sugar and are not necessarily the best options for your dog, or you for that matter.
This recipe is super easy and a healthy option that your dog will love and that everyone in your family can enjoy!
12 ounces of Vanilla Yogurt (Subsitute for Plain if you don't want added sugar)
½ Cup of Water
Cut peaches into small pieces and mix into vanilla yogurt. Add water. You may blend if you want a smooth texture or leave it as is to enjoy chunks of peaches with every bite.
Pour the mixture into an ice cube tray and place a pretzel stick into each slot. Freeze for 2-3 hours.
Tip: If the pretzel doesn't stay put, place the ice cube tray in the freezer for a while and stick the pretzels in when the solution has thickened a bit.
(Bentley loved these treats, especially since the weather has been in the 100s these past few days)
Pour the mixture into a popsicle tray. Freeze for 2-3 hours. Enjoy!
(My daughter insisted on holding the popsicle herself. She loves anything cold so I let her enjoy it on her swing.)
Tip: You can use any fruit you like. Here is a list of fruit that is okay for dogs to eat however if your dog suffers from allergies it's always best to consult your vet before feeding him anything you're unsure of.
Fruit Dogs Can Eat
Now you can make all sorts of frozen fruit and yogurt combinations. If you REALLY want to indulge, use---> ICE CREAM! Hey throw in something fudge or caramel while you're at it. It will be worth the extra calories, trust me!
