Did you know dogs can have watermelon?

You’ll want to make sure you give your dog the seedless variety and do not let them eat the rind, but according to the AKC, watermelon is a health-food powerhouse, low in calories, and packed with nutrients—vitamins A, B6, and C, and potassium.

Watermelons are ~92% percent water and have limited sugar, so it’s great for hydration on a hot day. This is why my Frozen Coconut Oil & Watermelon Dog Treats are an excellent homemade dog treat for hot summer days!

My frozen watermelon dog treats are the perfect homemade popsicles for dogs! They are so easy to make and only include 3 ingredients! 

I have a whole post about keeping dogs cool during the summer HERE.

Frozen Coconut Oil Watermelon Pupsicles

Watermelons are ~92% percent water and have limited sugar, so it’s great for hydration on a hot day. This is why my Frozen Coconut Oil & Watermelon Dog Treats are an excellent homemade dog treat for hot summer days!
Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 5 mins
Freeze 2 hrs
Servings 15 treats

Ingredients
  

  • 5 cups of Fresh Chopped Watermelon I used 1/2 of a large seedless watermelon
  • 2 Tablespoons refined coconut oil
  • 5.3 oz of Plain Greek Yogurt
  • Silicon ice cube tray
  • A Blender

Instructions
 

  • Cut seedless watermelon into small 1-2 inch cubes.
  • Put watermelon, greek yogurt, and refined coconut oil into a blender.
  • Blend for 1 minute or until all ingredients are mixed together. It will look like a pink soup.
  • Pour into silicone ice cube mold trays and freeze for 2 hours or until they are set. Pro Tip: The silicone tray is flimsy, so I like to put my silicon on a cookie sheet or cutting board and then pour the liquid. Putting it on a stiff tray makes it easier to move it into the freezer.
  • Pop-out of the tray and treat your doggy! Store treats in an airtight container in the freezer.
  • These treats can be messy so I recommend giving them to your dog outside. They are basically small popsicles – just like the ice pops we all ate as kids – so they melt fast and can make a mess. I make them and give them to Kenzo + Vík during the hot summer days to help prevent heatstroke. I have a whole post about keeping dogs cool during the summer HERE.

Kenzo loved them so much – I let him lick the tray after I popped the frozen treats out.

Does your dog like fruits and veggies?

Kenzo and Vík are kinda picky, but they definitely enjoyed these frozen watermelon dog treats!

Other fruits and veggies, such as carrots and apples, can be a healthy treat for dogs! You can learn more about other fruits and vegetables that dogs can and cannot eat here.
