This Sunday was so lazy because it was raining heavily and outdoors was so wet that I couldn’t go out to play. Angel couldn’t go out for a walk either. So I thought I would do something to keep both of us happy. I found a watermelon in the fridge and I came up with an idea to make watermelon popsicles as frosty homemade dog treats for Angel!!!
Homemade dog treats are always fun to make, and they are healthy dog treats too. Watermelon popsicles are all-natural dog treats and hence completely safe and Angel loves them too. I tried to figure out how to make frozen dog treats on google and also on youtube. I found quite a few dogs treat recipes. I found that fruit dog treats are very common and very simple to make.
This simple homemade recipe uses watermelon for the popsicles along with soy milk and honey (optional). I used soy milk instead of coconut milk that I found on youtube. Soy is commonly used in many dog food kibbles for puppies and adult dogs. Also, soy milk is used as a dairy substitute and is considered pretty safe according to ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®).
However, it is better to be used in moderation. Also, many dogs may be allergic to soy milk and hence needs to be used with caution. I figured Angel, my golden retriever, being a large dog will need about half of a mid-sized watermelon.

Watermelon Popsicles – Easy Homemade Dog Treats Recipe
This is a 3 ingredient dog treats recipe using:
1. De-seeded or seedless watermelon – About 2 cups
2. Soy milk (unsweetened and unflavoured – 1/2 tetrapak or 100 ml
3. Honey – One tablespoon.
Cut the watermelon into pieces and puree it in a juicer grinder. Make sure you have removed the seeds beforehand. A juicer will automatically separate out the seeds. Just make sure not to run the juicer too long.
Add soy milk and honey and mix thoroughly.
Pour carefully in the silicone mould and freeze. Voila! Your yummy simple homemade watermelon popsicles are ready for your doggie to enjoy!
