Want to give your pup a little something special? Turn leftover fresh fruit into a frozen sensation with this easy recipe.
We used watermelon and pineapple to create this beautiful and delicious tie-dye effect. The secret to the swirls is that the pineapple comes out thick and frothy and the watermelon more smooth and, well, watery. Thus, a gorgeous swirl is created.
These fruity treats also make excellent flavored ice cubes in a tall glass of iced tea, so make a double batch to share with your four and two-legged family members.
