Watermelon Pupsicles, aka DIY Frozen Watermelon Dog Treats
A quarter of a watermelon - Seedless is Safest for Your Dogs; seeds may cause internal blockages in many spots
One can of coconut milk
Scoop out about 1/4 of the melon.
Blend together with the can of coconut milk – add more watermelon if you want a darker pink.
Pour into ice cube trays, place in the freezer, and wait.
Notes: This is fun, and messy to make. I'll update this tomorrow to let you know how the puptots rated these treats.
Thanks to Mel Hawbaker for sharing the link to this delicious treat (and yes, it's a little tasty if your dog will let you have one! ).

Okay - we unmolded one ice cube tray full of frozen watermelon treats and 3 of the dogs absolutely love them.
The standard ice cube size is too big to suit these dogs. None of them wanted to lay down their treat. I cut each cube into 4 pieces and passed them out. The dogs liked rolling the piece around in their mouth, and then sort of chewing it up and swallowing it. They followed me to the freezer as I tucked in the tupperware dish that I'd put the other half dozen in. I told the dogs not to worry - they could have some more later.
These cubes are tasty for humans too, I ate a couple of quarters and they were delicious.
