Easy Homemade Pupsicle Recipe

DIY
Dog licking frozen treat
If you’re hot, your dog is likely feeling the summer heat too and we bet your dog is eyeing down your summer fun treats. 
 
This recipe is a great way to include your dog in those summer treats and help them cool down at the same time. 
 
Ingredients:
  • Pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • Plain unsweetened Greek yogurt (make sure it does not contain xylitol)
  • Chicken or beef broth (make sure it does not contain onions or garlic. The fewer ingredients and preservatives, the better)
  • Water
  • Popsicle molds, muffin trays or ice cube trays
 
Combine Ingredients
The amount of mixture you’ll need will depend on how big your molds are. You’ll want the mixture to be fairly runny so that it can easily pour into the molds. Add more water as needed
 
For the pumpkin variation:
  • Mix equal parts pumpkin puree, yogurt and twice the amount of water (for example: 1/2 cup of pumpkin, 1/2 cup of yogurt, and 1 cup of water)
 
For the yogurt variation:
  • Mix equal parts yogurt, water and stock (for example 1/3 cup of yogurt, 1/3 cup of water, 1/3 of stock)
 
For the stock variation:
  • Mix equal parts water and broth (for example 1/2 cup of water, 1/2 cup of broth

Fill and freeze
  • Once you’ve prepared your mixture of choice, it’s time to pour it into your molds
  • If you don’t have popsicle molds on hand, there’s plenty of other options you likely have lying around your kitchen. A muffin tray, an ice cube tray or even paper cups will do the trick
  • Fill your molds, and set in the freezer overnight

Eat!
  • Once the pup-sicles have fully set, pop them out of the mold
  • Enjoy! These are a refreshing treat to offer your pet on a hot summer day. However, as with all treats, moderation is key
  • These can be messy to eat, so we recommend indulging outside
