Doggy Ice Lolly Recipe
In this beautiful weather, it’s nice to cool down with an ice-cold drink. But don’t our pups also deserve their own cooling treat? Check out the following quick, easy, and healthy recipe, which calls for only three simple dog-safe ingredients. For more tips on how to keep your dog cool in the heat, check our Beat the Heat! blog on our website.
- 1 peeled carrot
- 1 cored and deseeded apple
- 300ml water
- Meaty stick treat (Any stick shaped edible dog treat)
- Paper cups for a mould (we suggest a regular size for larger dogs and espresso cups for smaller pups)
1 - Slice your apple, making sure that the core and seeds are removed, and chop into small pieces. Then grate your carrot.
2 - Measure out the water into a jug and tip in your apple and carrot. Blend with a hand blender until smooth. This recipe will make around 5 lollies.
3 - Pour the mixture into regular or espresso-sized paper cups and place in the freezer until they are partially frozen. This will take between 1-2 hours.
4 - Once they are partially set, take them out and add a meaty stick-shaped treat to create the stick of the ice lolly. Place back in the freezer until completely set.
5 - Remove the paper cup before giving one to your dog. We recommend your dog a lolly outside (in a shaded area if it is a very hot day), in their bowl or on a floor which you can easily clean, so it doesn’t melt into any rugs or carpet.
