DIY Superfood Pupsicle

Summertime is here, and so is the heat! That means your dog will need something delicious and hydrating to safely enjoy the outdoors. For dog owners that love homemade treats, there’s no better summer delight than a pupsicle!

What You Need to Make Delicious Pupsicles

Making pupsicles may sound difficult. But with fresh ingredients and needed tools, they’re easy to make and well worth the effort!

Ingredients You Can Use

Like with many homemade treats, there is a wide variety of nutritional ingredients you can add to your pupsicle recipe. But unlike regular treats, these summertime delights are made with hydration in mind! So consider ingredients like:

  • Watermelon: Composed of mostly water, watermelon is the perfect ingredient for keeping your dog cool and hydrated during hot summer days. It’s packed with vitamins A, B6, and C which support a healthy immune system, vision and overall health.
  • Greek Yogurt: This ingredient is rich in probiotics, which helps with gut health and digestion, and protein. There is also plenty of calcium and vitamin D in greek yogurt, which helps with bone and dental health.
  • Apple: This is a good source of fiber, and helps with maintaining a healthy weight. Apples also contain vitamins A and C. Be sure to discard the seeds and core, as they can be harmful to dogs.
  • Honeydew Melon: This melon is also packed with water, which makes it a great source of hydration. Along with vitamins B6 and C, honeydew melons also contain potassium which supports muscle function and cardiovascular health. Be sure to thoroughly remove the seeds and rind when feeding it to your dog.

These ingredients as well as other fruits can be combined to create a delicious, nutritional and hydrating summer delight! With a day of play and sweet summer treats, your dog is sure to love a pupsicle.
