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!
- 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
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.
