Now your furry friends can have a cool, refreshing snack without turning your floor into a sticky mess. What could be better?! Keep reading for the step-by-step recipe to make frozen watermelon treats that will keep your pup cool and happy this summer!
- Silicone molds or ice cube trays
- 3 cups of watermelon (seedless, rind removed, and chopped into chunks)
- 1 (7oz) container of low-fat OR non-fat Greek yogurt
- Start by setting your silicone mold or ice cube trays onto baking sheets (this helps transfer them easily to the freezer without spilling).
- Next, prep your watermelon by removing the rind and cutting it into cubes. Keep in mind your watermelon must be seedless.
- Add your 3 cups of prepared watermelon to a blender and puree until smooth.
- Next, add the entire 7oz container of greek yogurt to the blender with the pureed watermelon. Blend it all together until mixed well.
- Pour the mixture into your silicone molds or ice cube trays and cover them with plastic wrap to avoid spillage. Place them in the freezer overnight to harden.
- After being frozen overnight, it’s time to enjoy! A couple of minutes before your pup is ready for a refreshing snack, set your silicone mold or ice cube tray on the counter to defrost – this will help loosen the treats from the molds.
