Refreshing Fruit & Herbal Ice Treats
On those hot summer days, we all enjoy a cool refreshing treat. Well, so do our dogs!
Learn how to make unique, healthy and simple ice treats to cool down a dogs body temperature and let them have some fun!
Ideas to mix and match:
- Blue berries
- Lemon Balm
- Rose petals
Do NOT use
- Citrus fruit
- Garlic powder
Think about what you think would be a good match and give it a go!
Cut up fruit, remove seeds or rind if applicable, place in a blender or food processor, add some water and blend away. Pour liquid in ice cube trays or fun shaped silicon molds. Place in freezer for at least an hour or until frozen. You can pop them out and store in a separate container so you can make more and use the molds for other projects or keep them in their molds. After blending the liquid might still be slightly chunky or not the prettiest but that doesn't matter. Your dog doesn't care about looks, it cares about smell and taste! Find a combination your dog loves or use a single ingredient like a specific fruit they really enjoy. All dogs are different so have fun and experiment!
