Two thirds of my dog population have very non-summer-friendly coats, so any little icy treat [um, usually just ice] I give them is God sent. Okay, let’s be honest. They are lab mixes – any kind of food is God sent. BUT! Now they can enjoy a healthy summer snack – with flavor!
If you love your fur babies as much as I do, you want to make them all kinds of happy, especially during the unbearable summer months. One of my favorite things to do is put ice cubes in their water, but that can get kind of messy when they realize they can dunk their heads in to fish them out! So instead of using plain old ice cubes, why not give them a bit of their favorite flavors? Along with being tasty, the flax seeds help with your dog’s skin and coat.
*note: the amount of PB is really up to you. 3 tblsp or more…
Two simple steps:
1. Blend all ingredients until thick and smooth.
2. Pour mixture into an ice cube tray and freeze overnight.
*note: the above photo only represents half the recipe
And then taunt your pups with them. 😉
GIMME! SO cute!
This is brilliant! I love my little Shiva and I can't wait to make her some of these treats. 🙂 Thanks for the recipe!
Amazing, cheap idea! I know my Frenchie will love these. On summer days when we're all outside, he gets a little too hot and the kids are sad when he must go in. With these, he might be able to extend his playtime!
I'm TOTALLY going to make Squirty some of these!! Woo! She'll love ya for it, Roxy! 😉
I'm making these!! I love how your tutorials look too, exciting every time 🙂 🙂
Bodhi practically licked the screen when he saw these! Now that we live in the desert he is a huge fan of Frosty Paws…this recipe is totally going to be our DIY alternative! On a side note, my aunt totally has her dogs trained to run and sit by the freezer when they hear the ice cream man in the neighborhood…hilarious! xo.
This is awesome! I'm sending it to make for Bean. 🙂
Both of my corgis love these treats (I'm not sure Pippin even chews his anymore)!! Thanks so much for sharing this recipe!!
My dog is also named Pippin, just that he is a golden retriever 🙂
What purpose does the flax seed serve?
I included a link at the very bottom of the post. 🙂
I would guess the flax seed serves as a binder. You could prolly use bananas instead.
What could be used in place of flaxseed? My dog is allergic to most kinds of grains and i dont want to try a new kind that may set her off.
No need to include flaxseed! You can add chopped bananas, too. 🙂
First off, your dog is adorable! Second of all, I will for sure try these, I'm sure my lab would love them!
We have no “furr- babie’s” at this time, but over the year’s, we raised “3” lil’ Maltese, at separate time’s. Love your recipe’s for the “pupsicle’, for myself. YUM!!!
