Deluxe Dogsicles

Posted by Dexter

Yup, we went all out with another dogsicle recipe!  It’s a triple layer dogsicle!  See the banana layer, the kiwi layer, and the blueberry layer?

Here is what you need for this recipe:

  • 3-ish cups plain natural yogurt
  • 2 bananas
  • 1 kiwi
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • little paper cups
  • small dog bones

This recipe is pretty simple too.  For the banana layer, just mush up 2 banana’s with a few scoops of yogurt until it’s smoothie smooth.  Then fill the cups 1/3 full.  Freeze for about 10 minutes then add the second layer which is just 1 kiwi mushed with some more yogurt.  Then fill the cups about another 1/3 full.

Freeze again for 10 minutes and mix up the last layer of mushed blueberries and yogurt.  Top the cups up with this last blueberry mix and add a dog bone as a stick.

That’s it!  Freeze for 6 hours and they are ready for your pup (and you if you want) to enjoy.  We thought they were pretty great.  Jack especially:

I liked them too.  Especially the banana part!

We give these a 10 out of 10!  Don’t forget to let us know on our Facebook page if you make them!

Apple Yogurt Dogsicles

It’s been super hot here lately so mom thought she’d make us another flavor of dogsicles!  Like we mentioned yesterday on our Facebook page here’s the recipe we promised.

Here is what you need:

  • 1 apple (peeled, cored, and diced)
  • 1 cup of plain yogurt

That’s it!  How much easier can it get?!  Mix the diced apple and yogurt together and spoon into ice cube trays.

Freeze for about 6 hours and they will be ready!  We pop ours out and store them in a large freezer bag.

We love them!  Jack gobbled his up in about 3 seconds but I savored mine by licking it.

If anyone makes some dogsicles at home, feel free to post a picture on our Facebook page of your dog enjoying them!  We’d love to see your photos!
