This recipe is perfect for owners that love their Pups! Although I am calling them pupsicles, these are perfect treats for kids and adults too!They only have three ingredients so they are super simple to make. They are just cantaloupe,yogurt and carrot juice. Blend them all together and fill some ice trays and you got yourself a yummy treat that the pup (or kid) in your life will love!
I found a rendition of this recipe in Rachael Ray's July magazine. She served it as an actual chilled soup,which I thought was a little weird because I pictured my pug lapping up the soup and dripping it all over the place in her beard. So I opted to freeze the soup and make pupsicles! My dog Meatball loves these pupsicles. The carrot juice and the cantaloupe make these treats so sweet and yummy. Plus, they are frozen which is perfect for the summer and they can cool you or your pup down. If you want to serve these to kids, you can still fill them in an ice tray and add a Popsicle stick in the tray while they are freezing!
Note: You can buy small bottles of carrot juice at the gorcery store for fairly cheap. If you think you might use carrot juice in other recipes feel free to buy a larger container.
