With this everlasting heat wave, all we really want is something frosty to cool us down. Dips in a glacier-fed lake, floating down a river, and frozen treats are on our list and that goes for our dogs too!
Our furry friends feel the harsh heat of summer just as much, or even more than we do, and they deserve a yummy way to cool down.
The following frozen goodies are not only super-easy to make, but they’re also healthy. These will cool off your pup, while providing a delicious, tasty treat! For plant-based recipes, substitute dairy products by coconut milk/yogurt.
