Pet-Friendly Cantaloupe Ice Cream

Kiki Kane
Servings 2 cups


  • Freezer
  • Food processor or blender


  • 2 cups (300g) Frozen ripe cantaloupe
  • 2 tbsp Unsweetened yogurt


  • Make sure you have space for your cantaloupe in the freezer.
  • Scrub the outside of the cantaloupe thoroughly.
  • Slice the melon in half and remove seeds.
  • Slice each half into quarters and remove skin, then dice the fruit into bite-sized chunks.
  • Place cut melon in the freezer. The more space around your melon chunks, the faster they will freeze, so if you’re in a rush, place pieces on a baking sheet to speed things up.
  • When completely frozen (2-4 hours or overnight), place about 2 cups (300g) of melon pieces into the food processor.
  • Add 2 tablespoons of unsweetened yogurt.
  • Blend until combined, adding a little cool water if needed to blend to your preferred consistency.


If your cat is lactose intolerant, you can skip the yogurt, though it does change the consistency. A little peanut butter can work instead.
Top your pet’s kibble with a few tablespoons, serve as part of dinner (replacing some of the usual food), or freeze into paw-shaped pops for the ultimate in homemade frozen cat treat goodness.
