Fruity Frozen Pupsicle Treats

My four-legged fur babies are my children.  Just like any mom, I will do whatever I can to make my fur babies happy and content and to keep them safe and healthy.   I make the wet food for my dogs Lucie and Vinnie about once a week.  Every now and then, I even make them special treats as well.  This time I made them some fruity frozen pupsicle treats.  Just like kids who love their popsicles, my dogs love their pupsicles.  The pupsicles help cool them down when the temperatures are on the rise.  They are super easy to make and very healthy for our furry friends too.  Just like any treat, they are treats.  Don’t give them too many at a time.

Fruity Frozen Pupsicle Treats

1 large jar of fruity baby food – any flavor will do

1 ripe banana – the riper the better

16 oz fruit yogurt

3/4 cup water

 

Mash the banana until it makes a fine mush.  Then add the rest of the ingredients and mix together well.  Whenever I make something for Lucie and Vinnie, my “special assistant” Fritzie comes out to help.  She loves to help out and to supervise, making sure I make things just right.  I used a berry baby food and blackberry yogurt, but any fruity flavors will do.

Fill your cube trays and freeze.  I found these fun paw print cube trays a long time ago, and I think they are perfect for “the kids”.  I’ve never had any complaints yet, so I think they approve too.  🙂  I also had some star cube trays too, so I mixed them up a bit.

Once the pupsicles are completely frozen, they are ready to give to the pups.

Vinnie is anxiously awaiting his treats.  If I turned my back for just one second, all of these would be gone in a flash.

Anticipation.  Vinnie and Lucie have to work for their treats.  They are always motivated by food; especially Lucie.

Stay safe and stay well Everyone.  ‘Til next time.

    1. Here is a link to a recipe for “the kids” a long time ago. Usually, when cooking for your dogs, the rule is A LOT of PROTEIN and low fats, and NO spices, onions, tomatoes, garlic, or grapes. Lucie and Vinnie get a wide variety of things, but usually chicken or beef and with vegetables, and either rice or potaotoes.

    1. We prefer the term “well-loved”. We don’t use the “s” word around them. You know, it will give them a complex. 🙂 Mommy makes them earn their treats. Daddy just gives it to them. Now we know how the “s” word came about. It’s from Daddy. 🙂
