Pupsicle Recipes to Enjoy This Summer

If you and your furry friend are enjoying the long days of summer by spending lots of time outdoors, you may be on the search for ways to keep your pet cool. Although there are many practical ways to safeguard your buddy from overheating, offering a homemade pupsicle is a fun treat that will help cool him or her down after outdoor adventures. The recipes we share here are easy to prepare and store so you can express your love to your pet as you lounge in our dog-friendly apartments.

Pumpkin Chicken Pupsicles

Pumpkin is an excellent source of fiber for your pup, and this fruit is also easy on the digestive system. When combined with chicken jerky and yogurt in a frozen treat, this pumpkin pupsicle recipe is sure to be a hit. To prepare, use a blender to combine ¾ cup of pumpkin puree and half a cup of plain yogurt. Then, pour the mixture into an ice mold and use chicken jerky pieces for edible popsicle sticks. Allow to freeze for 3-4 hours before serving.

Blueberry Pupsicles

Antioxidants help support cell health and promote healthy aging. Blueberries are packed with this substance, and many dogs enjoy their sweet-tart flavor. Blueberries take center stage in this simple pupsicle recipe: you’ll just need half a cup of fresh or frozen blueberries and half a cup of plain yogurt. Blend the blueberries first, then add the yogurt. Pour the mixture into molds and freeze until solid.

Tropical Pupsicles

If your pup is a fan of fruit, he or she will love this tropical pupsicle recipe. To prepare this sweet treat, you’ll need one ripe banana, 4 cups of orange juice, and half a cup of plain yogurt. Combine ingredients and blend until smooth, then pour into your favorite mold and freeze. This recipe is versatile, so feel free to sub in dog-safe fruits such as strawberries, peaches, or watermelon.

Peanut Butter Pupsicles

Peanut butter is a safe and tasty treat for dogs, but be sure to avoid versions made with Xylitol. For this recipe, combine 1 ¼ cups of skim milk, ½ cup creamy peanut butter, 2 ripe bananas, and a peeled, cored, and chopped apple in a blender. When the mixture is smooth and well-combined, divide evenly into molds and freeze.

The recipes we share here will provide a delicious pick-me-up for your pup after a day spent adventuring in the summer sun. While all of the ingredients are considered safe for dogs without special dietary needs, be sure to supervise as your furry friend enjoys the frozen treat.
