Dogs love frozen treats when the temperature rises, and this doggy ice cream is as healthy as can be. ‘Healthy’ and ‘ice cream’ in the same sentence? You read that right. This two-ingredient recipe uses just cantaloupe and yogurt, but you can substitute any melon and any milk-type product your dog likes.
Dog-Friendly Two-Ingredient Cantaloupe Ice Cream Recipe
Yield 2 cups
- 300g frozen ripe cantaloupe
- 2 tbsp unsweetened yoghurt
- Food processor or blender
- Make sure you have space for your cantaloupe in the freezer.
- Scrub the outside of the cantaloupe thoroughly.
- Slice the melon in half and remove seeds.
- Slice each half into quarters and remove skin, then dice the fruit into bite-sized chunks.
- Place cut melon in the freezer. The more space around your melon chunks, the faster they will freeze, so if you're in a rush, place pieces on a baking sheet to speed things up.
- When completely frozen (2-4 hours or overnight), place about 300g (2 cups) of melon pieces into the food processor.
- Add 2 tablespoons of unsweetened yogurt.
- Blend until combined, adding a little cool water if needed to blend to your preferred consistency.
If your dog is lactose intolerant, you can skip the yoghurt, though it does change the consistency. A little peanut butter can work instead.
