DIY Pupsicles

Popsicles come in so many different varieties, each one providing its own version of refreshment. There are plastic freeze pops, rainbow pops, fruit bars, double pops, fudge pops, and now….pupsicles. Our precious pooches deserve to enjoy some icy refreshment, too, so here are some easy recipes for you to make your own yummy pupsicles.

For the fruit-loving fido


  • 1 ripe banana
  • 4 cups orange juice
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt

Put all the ingredients in a blender and purée until smooth. Carefully fill an ice cube tray with the mixture and freeze overnight. Pop out the cubes and let your pup enjoy.

For the peanut butter-obsessed pup


  • 1 cup unsalted, unsweetened peanut butter
  • 1/2 of a ripe banana
  • Water as needed

Mash the peanut butter and banana together in a bowl. Add water as need to make it easier to mix and scoop. Spoon the mixture into an ice cube tray and freeze overnight. Your peanut butter-obsessed pup will absolutely love these frozen treats.

When it comes to pupsicles, the possibilities are endless. Just keep in mind a few tips on safety: avoid choking hazards by keeping the sticks out of your pupsicles, don’t let your dog eat too many, and avoid harmful ingredients (like onions, salt, grapes, and avocados).
