My dogs LOVE these pops! They take a bit of time to make, but the crew thinks it’s worth it! What I love about pureeing berries for them, is that they have an easy to digest treat that is full of healthy antioxidants. And, it looks good too, right?
You will need a popsicle mold of some sort for this recipe. You can find them online, or at the looney/dollar store. Choose something appropriately sized for your dog. If the “pretty factor” is not important to you, just mix all the ingredients together initially instead of freezing in two stages. If you have any leftover of either mixture, or you have a small dog, mix everything together and drop into silicone molds or ice cube trays for smaller treats!
You will also need something to act as an edible handle! I chose Plato’s Thinkers Sticks, but you could use dehydrated liver or sweet potato. Anything hard enough that you can hold it for them while they eat.
The serving size on these will vary and depend largely on your popsicle mold size. Make sure you aren’t overfeeding your dog and choose appropriately-sized molds, or share with multiple pups!
- 650 Grams of Plain Yogurt
- 1 Cup Frozen Blueberries
- 1/2 Cup Frozen Strawberries
- 1/3 Cup Water (add as needed to blend frozen mixture)
- 1, 283 Gram Package of Plato’s Thinkers Sticks (or some other treat that can act as a handle)
- 1 TBSP Honey
- Add blueberries (reserve a few if you’d like to decorate your yogurt base with a few whole blueberries), strawberries, honey and water and blend until smooth.
- Pour mixture into your popsicle molds until just under 1/3 full.
- Cover your molds with plastic wrap to hold your “handles” in place.
- Cut a small hole in the plastic on top of each opening to insert the Thinkers handle.
- Freeze for about an hour.
- Pipe or drop yogurt on top of the frozen berry mixture.
- OPTIONAL: Use a chopstick to push a few berries into the yogurt for decoration.
- Cover again with plastic wrap and place back in the freezer.
- Freeze until frozen through.
- To remove popsicles from the molds, run warm water on the outside of the mold. Be careful not to break the stick when removing the popsicle.
