This week was unusually hot in our part of the country and my children ate their fair share of popsicles and ice cream. That got me thinking about all things frozen, summer treats and different ways we all deal with the heat. My oldest has a snow cone maker and she loves to make snow cones for all her siblings (and even cousins!). We’ve tried different flavoring methods from the store bought flavorings to kool-aid mixtures. We also have some popsicle molds that we like to experiment with and make our own frozen treats. Over the years we’ve done everything from juice, lemonade, yogurt/fruit smoothie combinations to kool-aid. We’ve also started making our own ice cream (there are many methods to do this) mostly because we found it cheaper and to be a healthier alternative.
Recently I read about making popsicles for dogs. They get hot too, right? Check out this sight for some easy, practical ideas on making your furry friend a frozen treat. DIYlife also has some “cool” ideas for doggy frozen treat ideas.
