If you love making frozen dog treats, then you’ll love making these frozen watermelon dog treats. If you have some seedless watermelons, some ice cube trays, and a blender then you’re ready to go.
Super Easy Frozen Watermelon Dog Treats
The reason I love these frozen treats isn’t just because they’re so easy, but because they are so much softer than ice cubes. Choco has never liked regular ice cube treats, but he goes crazy for these frozen watermelon treats.
These treats are like frozen popsicles. They have some crunchiness, but they’re actually not hard to bite like ice-cubes are.
And when it comes to using human foods as dog treats, watermelon is one of our favorites. Watermelon contains a lot of vitamins and fiber, and since it’s comprised of 92% water, it’s low in calories.
Just remember, as, with any treats, moderation is key. Although watermelon is low in calories, they do add up, and introducing your dog to any new food can cause stomach issues.
- One-quarter of seedless watermelon equals about 3 cups worth.
You can use more, depending on how many treats you make. One-quarter of a watermelon will fill two ice cube trays, making about 28 dog treats.
The reason you want to use seedless watermelon is that the seeds themselves can cause a blockage in your dog’s digestive tract, and the watermelon rind can also cause diarrhea also.
- Chop up your seedless watermelon into cubes.
- Put the watermelon into the blender
- Mix the cubes in the blender until they’re a smoothie.
- Pour the liquid into your ice cube tray.
- Freeze for about 3 hours.
That’s all there is to it. After they’re done freezing, you’ve got a low-calorie dog treat to help keep you and your dog cool in the summer.
