Veggie Surprise Summertime Ice Lick
- Prep Time: 10 minutes
- Total Time: 2 hours 10 minutes
- Yield: 1 ice lick 1x
- Category: Summertime Coolers
- 1 cup fresh baby carrots
- 1 cup frozen spinach
- 1/2 cup frozen peas
- Hot water to cover
- Optional: cooking spray
First off, if you care about how clear your ice is, the best thing to do is start with distilled water that you’ve boiled twice. In our test recipe, we used tap water boiled once and found that worked, too.
You can spritz your clean dry mold with cooking spray to ease removal at the end of the process.
- Place frozen spinach in the bottom of your mold and cover with hot water.
- Add the carrots and peas and top up mold with more hot water.
- Freeze 4 hours or until frozen solid.
To serve, hold mold upside down under hot running water until ice lick loosens.
Serve to your dog somewhere you don’t mind getting wet and a little messy!
