Pup Pop Tips

  • You can use either regular or greek plain yogurt for these pops. Just make sure the yogurt you use is free of any added sweeteners (artificial or natural).
  • If you have a smaller dog, make smaller pops by not repeating a second layer of ingredients.
  • Yogurt is good for dogs, but when given in excess, can lead to weight gain (like anything else).
  • The easiest way for your dog to eat the Patriotic Pupsicle is if you hold it for them!
  • If your dog is lactose intolerant, you can substitute Greek yogurt; however, it has less lactose than regular plain yogurt so if you just want to play it on the safe side, go with the Greek yogurt option.
