I scream for ice cream. Well, more like I splurge on a carton at Krogers and sprawl in front of the A/C course that doesn’t rhyme as well. But what does this have to do with dogs? They bark for …pupsicles! There’s no rhyme to be had here. I tried gang. (And occasionally they get a little icecream to)

The Pupsicle secret recipe.

Okay so there actually isn’t any real recipe. To be honest I’m one of those cooks that goes a little bit of this, a little bit of that, a shake of the butt and voila it’s ready. (To all those that have eaten what comes out of my kitchen I apologize. We’ll order in next time)

What do I put into my dog’s frozen treats? Just about anything. If it’s safe for them to eat and its freezable skies the limit here folks. (In moderation) A few all time favorites around here?

The Berry Happy to See You.

Choose your favorite berries to mix in (Strawberries and blueberries are the favorite around here)

Find yourself a good quality organic coconut oil

Melt your coconut oil if it’s not in a liquid form

Splash of apple cider vinegar (Bragg is our preferred brand raw and unfiltered)

Form into an ice cube tray (my preference is the silicone ones)

Freeze/Or let set in the fridge

Alternatively you can do the same recipe above but cut in low/no sodium broth or water and fill a small bundt pan. Your dog can chew and lick on it outside for ages. (And look how pretty it is you can instagram the heck out of that)
