Not only will your dog absolutely love them, but they’re also a great way to help keep them cool on a hot day. These should only be an occasional treat for your dog and should be given to them alongside a well-balanced diet that’s appropriate for their age and lifestyle.

Ingredients

  • 1 Apple
  • 1 Carrot
  • 300ml Water
  • Meaty treat stick (Stick-shaped edible dog treat)
  • Paper cups for a mould

Method

  1. Slice your apple, making sure that the core and seeds are removed, and chop into small pieces. Then grate your carrot.
  2. Measure out the water into a jug and tip in your apple and carrot. Blend with a hand blender until smooth. This recipe will make around 5 lollies.
  3. Pour the mixture into small paper cups and place in the freezer until they are partially frozen. This will take between 1-2 hours.
  4. Once they are partially set, take them out and add a meaty stick-shaped treat to create the stick of the ice lolly. Place back in the freezer until completely set.
  5. Remove the paper cup before giving one to your dog. We recommend your dog a lolly outside (in a shaded area if it is a very hot day), in their bowl or on a floor which you can easily clean, so it doesn’t melt into any rugs or carpet.
