Default Puppy popsicles for a hot day :)

My dogs have been really warm lately...so I wanted to give them a cool treat lol. I made the following, and they seem to LOVE it. Bryco can't have chicken so I wanted something not broth based...I mixed up the following and was pretty happy and the dogs LOVED them.

1 cup water
3/4 cup plain, lowfat yogurt
1/4 cup peanut butter (you can use all natural if that's your thing, I just used regular...it was what I had in the house)

Blend together with an electric mixer if you have one.

Put into ice cube trays...smaller is better

Freeze...after they're frozen pop them all out into a bag and store in freezer.

Probiotics, protein and hydration not to mention cooling off lol...mine are fans. I initially was gonna do chicken broth ones I've read about but realized lil Bryco couldn't have any. Mine keep looking for more but I don't want to make them sick lol. Let me know how Mr. Chico likes it!

Great idea! I wonder if I can just skip the peanut butter and just make frozen yogurt pops? They already get yogurt so their tummies won't have to adjust to anything new.
Thank you! I'm going to freeze some now and see how they come out.

I'm sure you can skip the PB...I just didn't want to do full on yogurt pops only because it might be too much ??

Edited to add...thats where the water came in...but if yours are used to yogurt I bet you could just freeze that and they'd love it!

This is going to sound like a "duhhhh" question, but how do you feed it to them - put it in a bowl - crush it up? Knowing my chi-peas they'd take the treat out and smear it on the floor trying to lick it! LOL

Mine tried to run to the carpet to eat theres so I just gated them in on the tile...they kinda kept it in the bowls at first but then gave up lol. You could prob. put them outside on a towel with it or even on carpet and it'd be fine? hahaha naughty little chi-peas
