Since it's been so hot out lately, I decided to share an idea I had to encourage my dog to drink more water. The fruit cubes also serve as a healthy and tasty treat. The steps to make refreshing frozen fruit cubes are very easy. Even a child can do it!
- Fresh or frozen fruit
- An ice cube tray
Tips: I just used whatever type of fruit I had on hand for this. I had some fresh blueberries that I just purchased. The strawberries and bananas were from a frozen package that I needed to use up. You can choose fruits that you know your dog enjoys.
- Wash your fruit.
- Place one or two pieces of fruit in each section of the ice cube tray.
- Fill tray with water.
- Wait until frozen.
See what I mean? It's super easy. The hardest part is waiting for the cubes to freeze. Mostly for my daughter because she wanted to test out these tasty cubes too. Here's what they looked like when they were done ~
You can add them to your dog's water bowl, as pictured above, or give them by themselves as a tasty treat with a surprise in the middle. You can also add them to your own glass of water.
Shiner loves ice cubes - especially when it's hot outside. She will stick her nose in the water bowl and fish out the cubes. One thing I learned from making these frozen fruit cubes was that Shiner isn't a huge fan of blueberries. She ate some of them, but I found a couple left over on my floor. Shiner does like strawberries and bananas though.
