Watermelon provides vitamins and fiber, as well as being low in calories. For its part, yogurt is rich in probiotics and thus favors good intestinal transit.

Note! Check that the yogurt is free of Xylitol, a sweetener potentially risky for dogs.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups of watermelon cubes
  • 1 cup of yogurt without Xylitol or flavor.
  • 2 teaspoons of honey tea.

Necessary Materials

  • 1 silicone cookie mold
  • 1 spoon
