What you need to make dog ice cream

Before you start making this ice cream for dogs we will explain what you need to prepare it, the ingredients used and some details to keep in mind:

  1. Ice cream moulds/ice lolly moulds. If you do not have a specific one you can use a plastic cup or any other container that you consider appropriate.
  2. Stick dog treats. They will hold the ice cream in place and are edible, so your dog can eat them without any problems.
  3. Blender or hand mixer. Fundamental to achieve a smooth consistency.

Ingredients for making ice cream for dogs

  • Rice milk
  • Sugar free natural yogurt

As a base to make the ice cream we have decided to use rice milk and natural yogurt without sugar. The latter, because of its low lactose content, is not harmful to dogs. On the contrary, it is a good dietary supplement for dogs that are fed homemade recipes.

If you prefer, you can use a lactose-free yogurt or water directly, your dog will like it too. Of course, never use cow's milk, dogs do not digest it well. Try opt for plant milk - there are an array of options out there!

  • Banana: it is rich in fiber and suitable for dogs suffering from constipation. It provides minerals, energy and vitamins but must be offered in moderation.
  • Watermelon: it is very rich in water, perfect for hydrating your dog in the summer. Remove seeds and offer in moderation because of their high fructose content.
  • Carrot: it is very beneficial for its antioxidant properties, for purifying and digesting. It strengthens the teeth and is good for vision.
  • Cantaloupe: is a source of vitamins A, E, is antoxidant and diuretic. Remove the seeds and offer this fruit in moderation.

These are some of the recommended fruits and vegetables for dogs, but you can use others that you consider more beneficial or to your dog's liking. Remember that if your dog suffers from hypersensitivity or allergies, it is best to offer them a water-based ice cream and a fruit or vegetable that can be digested with ease. Check with your veterinarian if you have any doubts or questions.
