Green KALE Ice Pops

Keeping your dog hydrated during the winter is just as important as it is during the summer months.

Last year, Sugar admitted that “she needs to drink more water.”Enticing Your Dog To Drink More Water With Fruity Ice Cubes” is one of our top posts last year.

I have to be “seasonal” creative to entice Sugar to drink more water.
Since March is the month for celebrating St Patricks Day, I made Green Ice Pops for Sugar.

Green KALE Ice Pops

The main ingredient is KALE.

Kale and Dogs

Kale is known to be a superfood for dogs. Kale is known to help prevent cancer in humans and research suggests it does the same in animals. Kale contains numerous antioxidants and essential vitamins, which includes beta carotene, vitamin A, C, E, and calcium.

The second ingredient is Coconut oil.

Kale Coconut Oil and Dogs

Coconut Oil is beneficial to dog’s 1) skin conditions 2) digestions and 3)immune system.

The last ingredient is ginger flavored water.

Ginger and Dogs

Ginger is known for its natural remedy. It helps calm a sore stomach.

Green Kale Ice Pops
1 cup of Kale
2 tsp of Coconut Oil
1/4 cup of Ginger Flavored Water

Blend it together in a blender or food processor.(fill it up only halfway)
Freeze it for about 2 hours

You can give it to your dog as a treat or add it in your dog’s water.

  1. Sugar my mom loves reading all of your Mam’s tasty treats…
    Hugs
    Madi your bfff

  2. Interesting idea!

  3. Frankie and Ernie says:

    THOSE are beautiful. Bet they taste super with that coconut stuffs in there. We like it on our teefs brush along with our chicken flavor paste.

  4. Oh yum this looks so tasty and so healthy! Kale is such a good for you and good tasting veggie

  5. hmmm I wonder if the boys would go for that…..the only green thing they like to eat is grass :)

  6. I think Roxy would love those. She likes lettuce and spinach a ton.

  7. I like the idea and we will buy a Kale tomorrow, so we can try your recipe and my staff can eat the rest of the kale. Thanks :o)

  8. When there is ice/fruit in my water bowl, I go for it like I’m bobbing for apples. My whole nose goes in the water and I blow bubbles the whole time! Do you lick your ice cubes daintily?

  9. What a wonderful idea! We’re going to make some!

  10. Two French Bulldogs says:

    I would try it but mom said our gasers are stinky enough
    Lily & Edward

  11. Now those look amazing and I’m going to get my peep to make them!
    Wag n’ yum!
    Maggie

  12. Tasty!
    Mom has been trying to get me to eat more vegetable lately. When she cooks veggie stir-fry or when she boils them, she will put some in my bowl.

  13. Sugar your treats always make me drool, and they always look SO pretty! Mom can cook and bake but nothing ever looks so nice!

  14. That is very clever Sugar!

  15. Those are really cute! I would probably enjoy them as well.

  16. We agree with Reilly and Denny as we only do grass and that makes us ill. Still some pups like greens so great idea and they sure look pretty. Have a terrific Tuesday.
    Best wishes Molly

  17. Very cool! Mom has left out the doggie cookie tray, its still not getting used so I’ll try to get her to make these! Love Dolly

  18. great idea, will have to try that

  19. That looks really easy to make and I bet Riley would like those! She likes anything green–green beans, spinach, grass, etc.–but I have never given her kale (even though I know it’s a superfood!). One question: do they sell ginger water or did you use ginger and add water separately? Can you tell I don’t cook much?? ;)

    • Ginger Water = Boil Water w/ Ginger … use your judgment: the bigger the ginger, the flavor is stronger. The water color is similar to a light tea. If you wish, you can add a little honey too. Golden Woofs

  20. Mom has always been happy because I love to drink water, Bailie does too. Even in the winter we love to drink. Katie has never been one to drink water. Mom tries everything to get her to drink more, but she just doesn’t like to drink water. Maybe these would help her out. They sure look pretty.

  21. That is a very interesting recipe but I think Bentley would love it. I am not a fan of kale but if it has all of those benefits to the dogs, I’ll sure give it a try. Bentley is an official “bananaholic” since meeting you! Happy Mardi Gras Sugar!

  22. Thats a great idea!!! Thanks for sharing!!

    frum our pack at love is being owned by a husky

  23. BOL – while Sam would have loved those, I can already hear Harlow screaming in terror.

  24. Hi Sugar, Thank you to your mom for posting this-I eat Kale on a regular basis and also juice with Kale for my liver. Hunter is a pretty picky eater but I may try this for him, if he doesn’t like it I will!
    Hope you are having a great day!
    Wags,
    Noreen & Hunter

  25. Those sound awesome! And they sound good for people to eat too :) You should make a recipe book of these clever recipes! (Banana ice cream, fruity ice cube treats, kale ice pops, etc.) :D

  26. I’ve heard that kale is very easy to grow in a garden, but I’ve never tried it myself so wasn’t sure if it would be worth it. These sound like a great treat for the dogs….our new puppy Luke loves ice cubes and frozen treats and these would be good for him too. Maybe I could even get the fussy girls to eat them!

  27. That’s a nice healthy green color! :) Nailah isn’t a fan of kale but I may have to give this a look into!

  28. How do you keep Sugar from taking the pops into another room and eating it there? I”m afraid BJ will eat it on my carpeting. The kale is a natural dye and my carpeting is beige.

    • That’s a good question? … Sugar is good as she keeps it in the bowl. I make the “ice pops” not too thick. I don’t put that much water in the bowl as the “ice pops” melts. Using a stainless bowl seems to work better than other bowls. Hope this helps out. Golden Woofs

  29. Healthy and they sound yummy! Yummy enough for us humans, too! I have all those ingredients, so I think I’ll whip up a batch. One of our Huskies chokes a lot when she drinks, so as a result, she doesn’t drink as much as she should and I give her crushed ice…I think she’ll really like this! Thanks, Sugar! We’re hopping on your Tasty Tuesday blog hop today, too, for Mardi Gras Tasty Fat Tuesday!

  30. How very NOMMY sugar, thanks for sharing!!

    Smileys!
    Dory, Arty, Jakey & Bilbo

  31. Making your dog have Kale.. Lol.. that ice pops are one damn innovative and healthy idea for my husky. Thanks :D

  32. Love the green treats. Great pictures.

  33. So yummy and perfect for St. Patrick’s Day, which is my birthday. I’m hoping my humans will throw a doggy party for me. Can’t you just imagine a bunch of dogs bobbing for Kale Ice Pops!

  34. How did you make the ginger water? Just soak some ginger for a few hours? I think these would be great for my beagle. She loves her veggies.
