Watermelon and Yogurt Frozen Dog Treats (Pupsicles)

Updated: Jun 10, 2019

Make a big batch of these two-ingredient Watermelon and Yogurt Frozen Dog Treats to keep your pup cool this summer!


These treats are just those two ingredients, pureed watermelon and yogurt, frozen together. The end. I used an immersion blender to puree my watermelon. You can use a blender or a food processor, or if you’re feeling real lazy, you can skip the pureeing and just mash the heck out of it with a potato masher–it wont be completely smooth but your dog’s not going to care.

For the treats in these photos I used these cute silicone molds, but you can make them in an ice cube tray, a mini muffin pan, or even a regular muffin pan if your dog is on the larger side, and your dog will love them just as well.


Aside from being super easy and a great way to use up leftover watermelon and yogurt, if your dog likes watermelon, they’re going to go NUTS over these treats.


Please note, watermelon and yogurt are safe for dogs to eat, but some dogs don’t process dairy well. If that’s the case for your dog, you can omit the yogurt. And as always, check with your vet if you have any questions or concerns about what you’re feeding your pets.

Dogs should be supervised when eating frozen treats. That goes double for these as they will stain your carpet if your dog wanders off and leaves a piece of one to melt somewhere!

This recipe calls for plain, unsweetened yogurt. DO NOT use yogurt that has been sweetened with xylitol, as it is toxic to dogs.

Recipe Notes

*If you used a muffin pan to freeze the treats, allow frozen treats to sit at room temperature for 5 to 10 minutes until you can use a plastic knife or fork to pop the treats out of the tray. Place in a single layer on a parchment or wax-covered plate or cookie sheet and refreeze for 15 minutes to 20 minutes before storing in an air-tight container.
