We got ice cream! - With these 3 (variable) recipes you will make your four-legged friend happy

The so-called dog days, in which the summer really shows what it can do, continue and let two- and four-legged friends sweat a lot. What better time than NOW to process a few ingredients into a delicious dog ice cream and give your darling a wonderfully refreshing treat after a few hours in the freezer. In the following we present you our favourite dog ice cream variations. Whether you own a »sweet tooth«, a veggie fan or a hearty gourmet: There are (almost) no limits to your imagination when creating delicious ice cream varieties for your four-legged friend!

For the »sweet teeth«

Many dogs love the pleasant sweetness of fruit, so grab one or two kinds of fruit, some yogurt and your blender and off you go:

  1. Puree fruit (Attention: remove the seeds from stone fruits before!) - banana & pear or banana & berries as well as watermelon & apple are super suitable
  2. Add yoghurt (made from cow, sheep or goat milk) and mix
  3. Pour the pureed mass into several small containers (ideally a maximum of 150 g per portion) or snack toys with openings of different sizes, a particularly »fillable« mould or KONG® toys and place in the freezer for several hours

For veggie fans

Some quadrupeds are real vegetable fans and can't get enough of beetroot, broccoli and co. The production of hearty and tasty vegetable ice cream is just as easy and quick as the sweet »frozen yoghurt« counterpart. Grab one or two kinds of vegetables, some curd or cottage cheese and puree it thoroughly:

  1. Puree the vegetables - the best are beetroot & carrot, zucchini & potato and cucumber & spinach
  2. Add curd or cottage cheese and mix well
  3. Pour the pureed mass into several small containers (ideally a maximum of 150 g per portion) or snack toys with openings of different sizes, a particularly »fillable« mould or KONG® toys and place in the freezer for several hours

For hearty gourmets

Your four-legged friend looks puzzled when fruit and vegetables land in the bowl and trots away, disappointed and hopeful that you will change your mind? No problem, there are also delicious ice cream creations for the hearty gourmets! Grab minced meat at will - whether beef, sheep, goat, chicken or duck doesn't play a role. The main thing is that it tastes good to your darling and he can digest it well. Also liver sausage (Attention: no pig!) is great and can be processed well.

  1. Provide minced meat (or offal) or sausage - very suitable are stomach, heart, muscle meat, rumen or liver sausage
  2. Add cottage cheese or yoghurt and puree until the desired consistency is achieved
  3. Pour the pureed mass into several small containers (ideally a maximum of 150 g per portion) or snack toys with openings of different sizes, a particularly »fillable« mould or KONG® toys and place in the freezer for several hours

In order not to overstrain your dog's stomach and intestinal tract, let the dog's ice cream melt a little at first and give your dog small portions at the beginning to see how he reacts. The big advantage of homemade dog ice cream is that you know exactly what's in it and can use exactly the ingredients that your dog likes and tolerates well. In addition, you can add or omit components as required. If you want your dog to gain a little weight, mix in oatmeal or some cooked millet, for example. If he is a little »too well fed«, water-rich ingredients such as cucumber and melon, mixed with some yoghurt or a mixture of broth and yoghurt, will fill him up, providing the body with valuable nutrients and refreshing at the same time. When filling specially designed snack toys, you also ensure that your dog is well loaded - mentally and physically, without overburdening him.

So don't forget to raid your fridge and treat your pet to a delicious ice cream these days!
