It’s getting hotter outside, and you can’t forget your furry friends need to cool down, right? Well, if you’re a crazy dog lady like me, then you make your dog popsicles. Lol.

These have a whole two ingredients:

  • yogurt
  • mashed strawberries

That’s it.

I mixed 3/4 of a 32 oz tub of vanilla yogurt (you could use plain yogurt too. The less sugar, the better) with a cup of mashed strawberries in a gallon size bag, cut the corner off, and filled plastic punch cups halfway full with the mixture. Then, stuck them in my freezer.

After about an hour . . . I took some milkshake straws, cut them in half, and inserted them into each popsicle. Then, I let them continue to freeze until they were solid.

After they’re frozen you can¬†serve them to your pupster! I’m pretty sure they’ll like it!

Now, I don’t let her eat the whole thing at once. One popsicle is about three servings for her, but obviously it’d be less for any dog that isn’t an 8 lb MaltiPoo.

Do y’all make treats for your dogs? Share the recipe in the comments!!

Chocolate Covered Strawberry Protein Pops

At the GFAF Expo the NoGii booth was handing out protein powder samples, and instead of just making a protein shake, I decided to change it up and make protein popsicles! ūüôā

IMG_3629Here’s what I did:
In the blender, I combined 10 medium sized fresh strawberries (halved, with crowns and stems removed) with one container of yogurt, (I used Oh My Yog!) a 1/2 cup of vanilla almond milk, and the 22g sample packet of the protein powder (use one scoop if using the container of mix) until mixture was thick, with a few chunks of strawberries remaining. Then, I poured the mixture into popsicle molds.¬†There was¬†some left over so I put it in a cup, and froze it¬†alone.¬†It wasn’t all that pretty, so here are the popsicles before freezing:IMG_3630

 Once in the molds, freeze for six to twelve hours, or until frozen solid. Run your popsicle mold under warm water until they separate from the molds, and you get something a bit like this:

Then, the¬†popsicles are¬†ready to enjoy! ūüôā

I’d love to hear if y’all end up making these! If you do . . . let me know in the comments!

Have a Fantastic Friday y’all!!

Love,
