- 2 cups watermelon cubes, seeds removed

- 1/2 cup oats
- 1 1/2 cup cold water
- Add the ingredients to a blender in the order listed.
- Blend on high for about 1 minute, or until the mixture is completely smooth and liquidy.
- Pour the liquid into popsicle molds, filling them up about 85% full.

- Freeze the popsicles in your freezer for at least 3 hours, or until they are frozen solid.
- Remove from the molds and serve to your dog, supervised!
What can I use if I don’t have popsicle molds?
If you don’t have popsicle molds, you can make these in plastic or paper cups, or make smaller dog treats in a reusable ice cube tray.
Coby is a gentle eater, so I used regular wooden popsicle sticks. If your dog is a big chomper, consider using a stick-shaped treat instead of a popsicle stick, like a carrots, celery stalks, or bully sticks.
This recipe makes 8-10 large dog popsicles. You can store them right in the molds in your freezer, or remove them and put them in a baggie or airtight container.
These treats should last in your freezer for up to three months. Make a batch now to last you through the summer!
