Humidity and heat are unpleasant for any of our furry companions, and the chances are that on the most noticeably awful of those hot evenings, your pooch will be relaxing on the coolest tile floor within your home. Help them cool down a bit and prepare the best dog treats to tackle the summer heat. Whatever sort of nibble your canine loves, there’s most likely a frozen version of it. In case you’re searching for some recipes that wouldn’t lead to weight gain or exhaust your pooch, here are three delectable options that you can try:

Peanut Butter & Banana Popsicles

Items needed –
● 2 tbsps of peanut butter
● 32 ounces of yogurt
● ½ cup of water
● 2 tbsps of honey
● 1 banana (preferably large)
● Dixie cups
● Dog biscuits

Preparation – Take the honey, water, peanut butter, and banana (peeled & chopped) and place them in a food processor or blender. Purée the ingredients together and then pour them out equally into the dixie cups. Put a dog biscuit in each of the cups, just like a popsicle stick, and then refrigerate the cups. Your furry friend would love you for the amazing treats.

Fruity Ice Cubes

Items needed –
● Cream cheese
● Water
● Fruits (watermelon, banana, etc.)
● Dixie cups

Preparation – This one’s amazingly simple. First, take one of those dixie cups or an ice tray (if you own a small dog), and fill the same with sliced bananas and watermelon. Next, add some cream cheese to it and then place them inside the freezer. When frozen, remove the frozen cubes from cups or tray and give them to your furry friend to relish. Alternatively, you can even give your dog just a frozen banana to enjoy!

Frozen & Frosty Tuna Cubes

Items needed –
● 8 ounces of unflavored yogurt
● A 6-ounce can of tuna (packed in water)

Preparation –
This one is easy to make. You should simply blend the fish and yogurt in a bowl, and then whisk them until you have a fluffy, nice batter. After that, place the batter in an ice tray and refrigerate for about 4 hours.

Bear in mind to check the ingredients properly to ensure that they are truly dog-friendly. Besides serving these delicious treats to your pooch, make sure they’re staying hydrated and drinking an adequate water quantity.
