Pupsicle Recipes

Ode to Baxter & Miss Bludog  ( Bax asked about it recipes so I thought I'd kick my buns into gear and do a blog posty ... I had to wipe all the DUST from the poor blog first tho..  heehee ) 

Please note that when making treats for your fur babies you ALWAYS want to read ingredients.  Xylitol, Sorbitol, Aspartame, Splenda are ALL no no's for furbabies and can be quite lethal.   Low fat yogurts often sub the real sugar for the fake.  Fake sugars convert into carcinogens and sometimes even formaldehyde  in the human body and they can be lethal for dogs.  Something to think about if you use them yourself. 

Salt is another contender for furbabies.  Try to find low salt items.  A little more fat isn't so bad sometimes as a good game of chase the ball or walkies can help that lil bit of fat take a hike.


These ones are tried by my Weens and loved.  ( so far that is .. sometimes something good can get old ya know?  If I ate too many hershey bars ... well I might get sick of them ... HA who are we kidding.  :)  )



Water
Pineapple Juice

Mix both evenly to taste and freeze.

Mashed Banana

Chicken Broth ( try to find one with reduced sodium .. better for you and pup too )
Water
1-2 small cheese cubes per treat

Mix chicken broth and water.  Add cheese cubes and Freeze. 
You can also substitute beef broth for chicken and small chunks of meat for the cheese chunks.

Mashed Kiwis or jar of baby fruit
Strawberry yogurt

mix together and freeze.
gentle on the teeth too as frozen yogurt is softer than frozen water. Good for elder pups.

Variety of "safe" fruits

Vanilla yogurt

Blend the fruit until smooth.  Add juice.  Add yogurt to thicken, honey for the extra sweet, puree until smooth and freeze.

Mishka's personal favorite ....

Green Beans
Plain yogurt
Chicken Broth

Blend  yogurt and broth to a thick consistency and then place green beans upright in the mix ( ice cube tray works best for this one )

Mishka likes to nab the frozen green beanie and trot around with his treasure until it breaks off from thawing. Ha!

Yes ... btw.. I have a new puppy for those that notice the blog and do not know me from adam any other way on the net.

Some baby goodness for you.  : )
