CAN DOGS EAT CANTALOUPE?
Cantaloupe melon can be enjoyed by dogs as long as the rind and seeds are removed. Full of vitamin A and beta carotene, cantaloupes are a good source of vitamins B-6 and C, fiber, folate, niacin and potassium
Feed your dog melon in moderation too just in case it upsets their stomachs.
Always check with your veterinarian before introducing any new foods into your dog’s diet.
WHAT INGREDIENTS YOU NEED
All you need for this frozen treat is cantaloupe melon and a dairy free yogurt.
COCONUT YOGURT FOR DOGS
For the yogurt we use a priobotic coconut yogurt that is locally made on the island. It's a vegan-friendly yogurt and has just as many healthy, gut biome-supporting probiotics as natural dairy yogurt.
HOW TO MAKE FROZEN CANTALOUPE DOG TREATS
We use a silicone mold to make these homemade frozen dog treats but you could use an ice tray or even a popsicle mold.
Place the melon and coconut yogurt in a blender
Blitz until you have a puree
Spoon the mixture into silicone molds or an ice tray.
Freeze for at least 4 hours then it's time for treats.
Place the frozen treat molds on a flat surface in the freezer for even freezing.
The coconut yogurt could be replaced with Greek Yoghurt or natural yogurt. Check the labels for hidden sugars though.
Any other melon can be used, just remove the seeds and rind. Only use the melon flesh.
FROZEN DOG TREATS STORAGE
Once the dog treats have frozen, pop them out of their molds and keep them in a zip lock bag in the freezer. They will last up to 3 months in the freezer.
Dog Frozen Treat Molds
Silicone frozen treat molds with paw and bone shapes.
