IMG_0614This recipe came from Modern Dog Magazine, summer 2016 edition, written by Serena Faber Nelson and Sarah Dickerson

WHAT YOU WILL NEED

1 small cantaloupe
Packed with Vitamin A and Beta carotene. the antioxidants in cantaloupe help prevent cell damage in dog and fights premature
aging and inflammation

1/4 cup Coconut milk (100% Organic)

***recipe makes 20 treat cubes or use it to stuff your dog’s kong before freezing.

HANDY HINT

To add even more flavor, add diced strawberries to the mixture, (another hint- make two batches, sweetening one with agave or honey before freezing in a Popsicle mold to make a frozen treat for yourself while you are at it! Sweet one for you, unsweetened for your dog!-Ed)

HOW TO

1. Wash the cantaloupe under cold running water. Cut the melon in half then use a large spoon to scoop out and discard all of the seeds. Place melon halves on a cutting board flat side down and cut into small slices ensuring that all skin is removed.

2. Add melon slices and coconut milk into a blender and puree until smooth.

3. Pour mixture into ice cube trays and freeze for a minimum of 4 hours or until frozen through.

4. When frozen, remove from ice cube trays and store in labeled zip lock bags in the freezer.

Note from Marsha: This is a very easy and very delicious recipe. I made both and thoroughly enjoyed the sweetened version, while Bella couldn’t get enough of the tasty cold cubes while she was outside with me watching my grand daughter’s soft ball games. An easy way to ensure that her body temp remained stable while out on a summer day! It was like being at the beach! I strongly recommend this product!
