So, let's roll up our sleeves, grab our popsicle molds, and embark on a fun and refreshing adventure in creating homemade dog popsicles that will keep our furry friends happy, cool, and satisfied all summer long!


Let's begin!


What you will need: 


1 large banana 


½ cup washed and dried blueberries 


¼ cup peanut butter (With no xylitol) 


Measuring cups 


Large bowl 


Silicone Spoon 


Silicone dog molds




Gather all the ingredients and supplies listed above. Make sure the peanut butter you use does not contain xylitol, as it can be toxic to dogs.


Start by peeling the banana and placing it in a large bowl. Use the silicone spoon to mash the banana until it becomes a smooth puree.


Add the washed and dried blueberries to the bowl with the mashed banana. Use the silicone spoon to gently mix the ingredients together, ensuring that the blueberries are evenly distributed throughout the mixture.


Measure out ¼ cup of peanut butter and add it to the bowl. Peanut butter is not only a tasty addition but also acts as a binding agent for the pupsicles. Stir well to combine all the ingredients thoroughly.


Once the mixture is well blended, carefully spoon it into the silicone dog molds. You can use the silicone spoon or a small spatula to ensure the mixture is evenly distributed in each mold, removing any air pockets.


Place the filled dog molds in the freezer and allow them to freeze for at least 3 to 4 hours, or until completely solid. Freezing time may vary depending on the size and thickness of your pupsicles.


Once the dog pupsicles are fully frozen, remove the molds from the freezer. To easily release the pupsicles from the molds, gently flex or twist the silicone mold.


Now, it's time to treat your furry friend! Offer the homemade banana-blueberry dog pupsicle to your pup on a hot summer day or whenever they need a refreshing treat. Watch as they enjoy the cool and delicious combination of flavors.


If you have any leftover popsicles, store them in an airtight container or resealable bag in the freezer for future use. These frozen treats will stay fresh for several weeks.


Remember to serve the popsicles to your dog in moderation, considering their size and dietary needs. Enjoy creating these homemade frozen delights for your pup and have fun making summer memories together!
