FREEZE POPS FOR PUPS – THE HONEST KITCHEN

Even though September is “right around the corner“, many States across this country are still experiencing sizzling, summer heat. That’s why (with some help from our friends at The Honest Kitchen), I decided to try my culinary skills with some freeze pops for pups…

FREEZE POPS FOR PUPS - THE HONEST KITCHEN

Only a few ingredients required convinced me I could not fail AND I like any opportunity to incorporate a little Pro Bloom in their system

WHAT IS PRO BLOOM?-

Pro Bloom is a probiotic!

An all-natural goat milk formula that’s good for your pet and their gut! You can pour it onto kibble, use it to hydrate THK food or serve it as a Doodlelicious nutritious drink. #bedtimebeverage 

BACK TO MY PUP POPS –

Here’s all you need –

  • 1 cup mango (remove skin, discard seed and chop)
  • 1 mashed banana
  • 1 1/2 cups coconut water
  • 1 tablespoon Honest Kitchen Pro Bloom

Shop amazon.com for Pro Bloom

  • Add all ingredients in a blender, puree for 1 minute (until mixture is smooth)
  • Pour into ice cube trays or molds

Here’s the complete recipe!

HOLD UP –

I wanted to take these on an overnight trip. Ice cube molds nor trays would work this time.

I was “tickled to Doodle” when I came across Zip-a-Pop Disposable Popsicle Mold Bags online. #yesIdid

I poured my mixture into the bags, and laid them in a pyrex dish before placing them in the freezer…

Frozen solid by the following morning, I tossed them in the cooler and we were on our way.

After a two hour drive, we reached our destination. Fifteen minutes later Jaxson transformed into #dolphindoodle

And #lifeguarddoodle patrolled the outer perimeter of the pool…

By the time I brought out THK Mango Banana Freeze Pup Pops – both Doods were ready for a cool refreshing treat.

Cold but not too hard (probably because of the fruit) – it was a hit with both Boys, however, I had to laugh at their unique eating habits!

Harley prefers for you to do the work. He’ll patiently wait for you to “push-up” a little at a time, then he nibbles it off…

Jaxson figured out quickly how to place his entire mouth on the pop and inhale as you squeeze LOL

At the end of the popsicle, we were all pleased –

  • Jaxson jumped back in the pool
  • Harley jumped back on the lounge chair
  • I threw the disposal popsicle bags in the trash!

SIDE NOTE –

I do own freezer molds, and I will use them for this treat. I liked using the bags this time because they worked well on the go.

The bags also make terrific treat bags for my purse or glove compartment too. Since I have 50 of them ($7.80 on Amazon) – I’ll be using them for a while. #ohyeahbaby

    Dear Cathy,

    Where do they get all the goats?

    Teddy likes his kibbles dressed with parmesan gratings and Phillipo Berio olive oil.
    I gets he is part Italian doodle.

      Teddy my Italian friend, you are living a wonderful life 🙂 I have given the Boys cheddar cheese on occasion but never have I given them parmesan. Hmmmmmm? Might have to try that considering I love it myself. Thanks Rich!

    Looks like a great start to some sweet adventures. I like the bag idea for traveling!

    • Cathy Bennett

      The bags worked out well. Frozen fruit doesn’t stay hard very long so as soon as I took them out of the cooler they were slushy and ready for consumption. The Boys enjoyed them.

    Oh boy those look refreshing! Especially after a swim

      Those were Jaxson’s exact thoughts I do believe!

    What a great idea and so simple too! I love collecting recipes for my dogs. My apples are coming in and I’ll have too many for pies and apple sauce, I can follow your recipe and add apples to keep them from going to waste.

    Thanks so much for sharing!!!

      Well you know me and recipes! Cooking for the Boys is not my strong suit, but I guess freezing is something I can do LOL Apples will be great. The goat milk gives it a great creamy consistency. I’m even adding it into their food daily now!

    What a great idea – and love those long little bags! Perfect!

      I’m going to try some different fruit combo’s along with the probiotic and freeze in those bags this week. I’ll let you know how they turn out!

    We recently found out about those new shaped Ziplock bags. Never thought of freezing something for us in them. Those look real tasty and refreshing.

    • Cathy Bennett

      It smells tasty too!

    Thanks for the groovey recipe! We’ll be trying that one out soon. Now if only summer would move along a bit faster toward autumn. 🙂

      You’re welcome. I will be cooking at least once a month. I believe after this sizzling summer our autumn will be rather warm too. At least around here…

    Those bags are fabulous! I like smoothies for myself, but I can never figure out how to keep them from sticking to everything. I’ll have to get some. And… yes, of course. I’ll share with the dogs, too!

      Make sure you add some probiotic in there for them too Jean!

    The recipe sounds good, and I like the zip-lock Popsicle bags too. I just can’t use mangos, cuz every time I see them, I think of a particular scene in the movie, “Marley” that kills my appetite. BOL.

    • Cathy Bennett
      August 22, 2016

      Say it ain’t so…. Mango’s are my all time favorite summer fruit. I was slightly disappointed when Jax showed similar attraction. I would have preferred not to share LOL

    What a great idea for taking those on the go. We’ve never heard of that probiotic but it sounds like a very good thing!
    I love the boys’ different styles of eating their frozen treats – both sound so cute! 🙂

    • Cathy Bennett
      August 22, 2016

      They are enjoying the probiotic in their food too. It makes the water milky white and somewhat creamy. I laugh at Jaxson as he takes a break from his meal and licks his lips. Too funny.

    I love the portability with the plastic mold bags.

    What an exciting life these boys lead, I tell you. 😉

    • Cathy Bennett
      August 22, 2016

      The bags worked out really well Lindsay, I’m using them with treats too!

    Tried the pops and my doodle loved them! My girls are finally taking to them. What fruit can we substitute when mangos are no longer available? It takes hot down south a LONG time!

    • Cathy Bennett
      September 20, 2016

      So happy to hear your doodle enjoyed them PEggi. That is wonderful. I haven’t tried an other fruit yet – I would imagine any fruit that your Dood enjoys would work. I think I will try apples next. Together with the banana should make a PAWsome flavor. Come back tomorrow for my first cooking video demo (OMDoodle) making the Boys beef balls 🙂
