Refreshing Watermelon Mint Sherbet for Dogs
We make this recipe with plain yogurt, but you can substitute with any milk you like. We especially enjoy it with coconut milk, but you can’t go wrong. You can also just use water and call it a sorbet.

- 2–3 cups of frozen diced watermelon
- ¼ cup of yogurt
- 1–3 tbsp of water as necessary
- Food processor
Wash your watermelon before slicing to remove any residual pesticide and dirt.
Slice, deseed, and dice half the watermelon, and place in a freezer bag. Let freeze until solid, about 4 hours.
Wash mint sprig, pat dry with paper towel, remove leaves, slice thinly with scissors, set aside.
Remove frozen watermelon from the freezer.
Place 2-3 cups of frozen watermelon chunks into food processor bowl.
Add ⅓ to ¼ cup of yogurt to food processor bowl and blitz to combine.
Add a little water if you need to smooth things out.
Keep blitzing the food processor until there are almost no chunks left, add mint leaves, and blitz to finish and combine.
Plate up the sherbet immediately and garnish with another mint leaf.
