Help your pooch cool down on hot days with tasty doggie popsicles. They’re not only simple but easy on the wallet as well. Below are some homemade popsicle recipes that will keep Fido cool and content this summer season.
Homemade Pupsicle Recipe Ideas
1. Whole-fruit Pupsicles. Begin by mixing 4 cups of water, 1 cup of chopped fresh fruit, and 1 tbsp. of molasses (dissolved in water) in a bowl. Just pick the fruit that your pooch loves the most (don’t forget to discard any of its pits or seeds!). Pour into popsicle molds or ice trays and freeze until solid.
2. Apple-Honey Pupsicles. Start by mixing 2 six-ounce containers of non-fat, plain yogurt, 2 tbsp. of peanut butter, 2 tbsp. of honey, and 1/3 cup of applesauce in a bowl. Pour into popsicle molds or ice trays and freeze until solid.
3. Chicken Pupsicles. Combine 1 cup of low-sodium chicken stock, ½ cup of water, and 1 ½ ounces of finely chopped chicken meat in a bowl. Pour into popsicle molds or ice trays and freeze until solid.
4. Bacon Pupsicles. Combine 1 cup of non-fat, plain yogurt, 1/3 cup of cinnamon applesauce, ¼ cup of milk, 3 ounce-bag of real bacon bits, and 3 tbsps. of maple syrup in a bowl. Pour into popsicle molds or ice trays and freeze until solid.
5. Banana-Peanut Butter Pup-cream. Prepare the following ingredients: 1 ripe banana, ½ cup of peanut butter, ¼ cup of wheat germ. Prepare by mashing the bananas and peanut butter together. Stir the mixture in wheat germ, and then pour into popsicle molds or ice trays and freeze until solid.
For an added treat, use a carrot stick or your dog’s favorite healthy, long crunchy treat as the popsicle stick! When using a popsicle mold, allow the mixture to partially set and insert the “stick” into each popsicle, then allow it to freeze completely.

It’s great to read this useful post on dog training. I have
a question however. How do you work with an older dog?
I have a diabetic Mini Schnauzer. Are any of these good for him?
I use plain yogurt, large size
1 capful of vanilla extract
Grated baby sweet carrots
Sometimes I grate one of his biscuits in
I freeze in 3 ice cubes trays that are cylindar in shape
He gets one a day! He can hardly wait!!
I think you could give any of these to a diabetic dog as long as you don’t add any sugar to it. Natural sugars or complex carbs are better than giving anything with flour or potato starch. Those are simple sugars or break down faster than complex carbs. Give in limited amounts.
An IRA can be an Individual Retirement Account which allows individuals to invest
and save money for retirement. Gold caps can stand the pressure off chewing better-than
porcelain caps. Roll-overs can be quite a topic.
Natural cleaning products are tough on molds, but friendly for
people and environment.Do that only after the form is treated successfully.
For that reason then require more care and attention.
I mix plain non-fat yogurt, strawberries (or blueberries), banana, coconut flakes and sometimes some unsalted peanut butter. I freeze them in cupcake tins. My pups LOVE them. They love their fruits and veggies!
my old dog absolutely LOVED watermelon, strawberries bananas and carrots. my 2 I have now eat bananas and carrots. and I think my 2 year old garbage gut would eat anything. lol I am going to make these frozen treats today.
I heard bananas are not good to give to your fur baby. Is that true?
All four of my dogs have bananas once a week. They love them.
Bananas are very high in sugar. So you don’t want to give them daily of course but in moderation they are fine. I even watched a cesar millan dog whisper episode that a dog was eating his poo . He put a banana on the ground and a couple other things that the dog may lack the nutrients of. He said the dog will go for what its lacking and all I can remember is that he ate the banana . So I had a dog who did this, she had just gotten thru cancer and I offered her “nana” 😉 sure enough she ate it the other three I have never wanted to eat one then I started them on “carrot bones” 😉 She would eat a carrot almost every time. two of my boys would eat them 75% of the time and one of my boys just 25% . So I take it they know naturally what they need just like the way they don’t always eat grass, only when they need to
loved these ideas but do you have any recipes for a dog that is diabetic? mine is. thanks
Neddie, I have a diabetic pup. We usually use pure pumpkin or sweet potato. Those are the only two snacks that I know work well for my schnauzer.
Try this one – empty a tin of sardines into an empty ice-cream container, fill it with water, and freeze. My dog loves it (can be any type of sardines – in brine, olive oil or tomato sauce). Hot day, dog-lickin’ good.
My Teddy, doxie LOVES my greek yogurt bars (here in No Calif, they are in SAFEWAY )…think this recipe would be a winner..might add yogurt…
I also make my own dehydrated chicken jerky…
