On hot days, it is important that your beloved pooch still feels comfortable. Frozen snacks are the best way to refresh your four-legged friend.
Today we want to show you how you can easily conjure up delicious and refreshing ice cream for your four-legged friend from watermelons.
The recipe is super easy as you only need three ingredients!
The Perfect Treats for Hot Days
Chilled treats are a great way to cool your dogs off on hot summer days. In addition, watermelon is 92 percent water and provides your dog with additional fluids. Of course, these treats do not replace a bowl of fresh and cool water, but they are a pleasant relief in between meals and counteract dehydration.
Preparation time: 20 minutes (plus freezing time)
The parsley is not necessary for the recipe, but it gives the ice cream snack an extraordinary note and fresh breath for your dog (although it does not work miracles either, of course).
Nutritional advice: Use only the flesh of the watermelon for these ice cream treats. The peel and seeds are difficult to digest and can cause stomach pain in your dog.
Suitable for cats: yes
If your dog prefers carrots, why not make carrot and banana ice cream for your fur nose.
Watermelon Ice Cream Recipe
This recipe is super easy to implement! If you want to make treats with different layers of flavors, you just have to freeze them several times. Sounds complicated? But it is not. This is how it works:
- 300 g of pureed seedless watermelon;
- 140 g Greek natural yogurt;
- 1 tbsp chopped parsley.
- Blend the pitted watermelon until you get a puree.
- Finely chop the parsley.
- Put some parsley in a mold and put a thin layer of Greek yogurt on top.
- Put the mold in the freezer for an hour.
- Take the shape out of the freezer and fill up the rest of the cake with the watermelon puree.
- Freeze for at least 4 hours.
Alternatively, you can put a layer of watermelon puree in the mold, then a layer of Greek yogurt, and then another layer of watermelon puree. Then it’s time to enjoy.
How about a delicious piece of watermelon for you while your pooch happily licks his ice cream?
