Are you a furbaby mom or dad? I am… mama to June Bug, my sweet little blind Speagle. She loves treats, especially this one. These Furbaby Watermelon Colada Coolers are a tasty treat on a warm spring or summer day. Your kitties can have them too… and so can you! Pet and people friendly.
Grab yourself a watermelon and fix your critters some frozen treats. And if you don’t have a mold like this, just make in muffin tins… they will love ya just the same. You can also make in a Pyrex dish, freeze and then slice!
These fruity treats can be enjoyed by both doggies and kitties (and you, too)!
- plain yogurt
- pureed watermelon
- grated coconut
Using a small brush or end of a spoon, “paint” the inside of silicone molds with yogurt.* Scatter with a little grated coconut.
Spoon pureed watermelon over and freeze.
Once frozen, store in zippered container for instant ice cold treats for your fur babies.
*If you don’t have molds, no worries! Just make in a Pyrex dish, freeze, slice and bag.

As summer wanes, there’s still an abundance of fresh watermelons! So grab yourself one and do some Honey Orange Grilled Watermelon “steaks.” These really do not need a printed recipe…
Just whisk a little OJ into some local honey. Cut the “steaks” in 1/2″ pieces. Place on hot grill and baste, cooking on each side just a couple of minutes to get a light char. That’s it… unless you want to take it up to a “more better” level by scattering with some crunchy Maldon Sea Salt and some freshly ground black pepper! This salt isn’t required but is great to have on hand, and readily available now in many places, so put on your shopping list and add to your pantry.
