3 Good-to-the-Last-Lick Pupsicle Recipes
Pupsicles (dog popsicles) are a great option because they’re full of healthy ingredients and help keep dogs hydrated. You can also fill your dog’s chew toy and freeze it for an even longer-lasting treat. Store any unused pupsicles in a sealed container for up to one month in the freezer.
1. Frozen Yogurt Pupsicles
These tasty frozen strawberry yogurt dog treats from Chef Kiki Kane are the perfect dessert-style treat for your pup.
- Unsweetened frozen strawberries
- Plain non-fat Greek yogurt
- Add a handful (4-6) of frozen strawberries to a blender.
- Add 2 ounces of yogurt and 2 ounces of water to the blender.
- Blend ingredients together – you can add more water if needed, but it’s OK for there to be chunks of strawberry.
- Spoon mixture into ice cube tray, baking molds or popsicle molds and freeze.
If you don’t have strawberries on hand, you can substitute blueberries or another human food that dogs can eat.
2. Fruit & Broth Pupsicles
Fruit and bone broth might not sound appealing, but dogs don’t seem to mind! Our Bountiful Bone Broth has anti-inflammatory ingredients like turmeric and cinnamon, plus collagen and amino acids to support gut and joint health.
