It’s been hot here, so it was time to make Delia a cool post-fetch treat! This time I used watermelon, dried blueberries, along with the usual plain yogurt.
I don’t ever really measure, I just make sure to include enough dog-friendly, healthy ingredients that will hold together while frozen and whatever yummy additions can go into that. This time I used 6oz plain greek yogurt, a couple of watermelon spears (turned out to be 7.5 oz), and about 1/8 cup dried blueberries.
Sliced the watermelon and combined into a mixing bowl.
I used an immersion blender, but a potato masher or even a fork would have broken everything up well enough, except the blueberries.
I pulled out a few silicone molds from my small collection. It’s fun to use them, even if Delia doesn’t even notice. Then just used a spoon to fill them, taking care to get to the bottom to get some of the blueberries which sink to the bottom.
Then I transferred the molds to a tray and put them in the freezer. It would have been just a little easier if I’d placed the molds on the tray before filling, but these are small enough that it wasn’t messy.
This is the flour freezer! We have a couple freezers and we’re able to dedicate this one to mostly flour, most of the time. I was able to take a few things out and do a little rearranging to make room for the tray.
They froze in just a few hours and were easy to pop out of the molds. Only one of the yeti made it out whole. I have never had anything come out of that mold nicely and it’s just a bummer, because… YETI! I haven’t tried chocolate yet.
