IS WATERMELON SAFE FOR DOGS?
The high water content in watermelon is great for dogs. As long as the rind and seeds are removed watermelon is a safe food for dogs. It's full of potassium, vitamin C and A as well as being low in calories.
Just 2 ingredients make these homemade pupsicles:
- Watermelon - Rind and seeds removed.
- Coconut milk - We use tinned coconut milk for this recipe.
HOW TO MAKE HOMEMADE WATERMELON POPSICLES.
This is a simple recipe. The 2 ingredients are blended then poured into ice pop containers.
Place all ingredients in a blender
Pour into popsicle containers and freeze.
If you don't have popsicle containers you could use ice cube trays too.
An immersion blender could be used if you don't have a countertop blender. Just be careful not to make too much mess.
When you want to give your dog one of these frozen dog treats, run the container under warm water to help release the pupsicles smoothly.
If you are using a popsicle container with sticks, make sure that your dog does not eat them!
Coconut water could replace the coconut milk.
If you are using yogurt, use plain and unsweetened. Flavoured yogurts are not suitable for dogs.
Other melon types could be used but cut them into smaller pieces to process as they might not have as high a water content as watermelon.
