Is this dog popsicles recipe safe for dogs?

Absolutely!

This healthy homemade dog popsicles recipe contains just two ingredients only: fresh pineapple and coconut oil.

Both of these ingredients are not only safe for dogs to eat, but offer their own health benefits as you’ll see below.

Is Pineapple Good for Dogs?

PINEAPPLE 

Pineapple is a superfood fruit for dogs that is commonly used in frozen dog treat recipes due to its sweet, delicious taste and many health benefits.

It’s an excellent snack for dogs in moderation (and emergency healthy back-up dog treat) that contains vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and beneficial enzymes.

Coconut oil good for dogs

COCONUT OIL

Adding coconut oil to your dog’s diet – again in moderation – can offer a variety of health benefits for dogs.

Among the many reasons to use coconut oil for dogs include:

  • Balancing your dog’s thyroid and helping with weight loss
  • Coconut oil contains natural antiviral, antibacterial, and anti-fungal properties
  • Hydrates your dog’s skin and promotes a shiny coat 
  • Coconut oil can be used as a natural teeth cleaner due to its antimicrobial properties 

Coconut oil dog treats are a popular choice for all the above reasons – and it certainly helps coconut oil has a yummy taste dogs can’t seem to resist!

However, one thing to keep in mind is that coconut oil contains calories and fat, so it is recommended that dogs should only be given around one teaspoon daily (or every few days) per 5kgs/ 10lbs of body weight.

As with any food or treats you plan to give to your pup, moderation is key. We recommend talking to your vet about what food is best for your dog and their specific needs.

What you need:

Instructions:

  1. Place chopped pineapple in a blender or food processor, and blitz until completely the mixture is smooth.
  2. Melt the coconut oil for 30 seconds if needed, then add the coconut oil to the pineapple mixture. Blitz until both ingredients are well combined .
  3. If using a food processor, pour mixture into a measuring jug so you can easily pour into the moulds.
  4. Place moulds onto a baking tray (so you can safely move them to the freezer without making a mess!) 
  5. Pour the pineapple and coconut mixture into the moulds.
  6. Freeze for 2-3 hours or until set.

Notes:

  1. Use fresh pineapple (not canned, as most contain too many sweeteners) and use the flesh only. Do not feed your pup the pineapple core or hard skin, as both can cause your dog to choke.
  2. You can use any mould size or shape you like, however this will affect the total number of treats you make in one batch. Small moulds or ice cube shapes may be a good starting point with this recipe, if it’s your first time feeding pineapple and coconut oil to your dog. 
  3. Makes up to 30 frozen dog treats if using the small round moulds as shown.
