The Fourth of July is just a couple days away, do you have something festive and fun for your pup to eat? With the birthdays in June, we had a lot of ice cream, so I wanted to make something fun and festive that would also be refreshing but not ice cream. I decided to make Patriotic Jigglers.
These are so easy to make, are healthy, low calorie, and red, white, and blue! You can use any fruit that is red and blue, I chose blueberries and raspberries. For the white, I decided on pure coconut water mixed with water to add some flavor but keep the gelatin clear for the white. Make sure and have your mom help you out with this recipe as it deals with boiling water and you wouldn’t want to burn your paws!
Patriotic jigglers are super easy to make, but I do have a huge hint. Make sure and leave the gelatin in the molds until it is completely set. My dear mom wanted to see if the jigglers were set and flipped over the mold and they all fell out. Unfortunately, they were only about 3/4 set, so instead of nice stars, we got round piles and had no time to redo the recipe for this post. Next we took them outside into the heat which really killed them. Please excuse the look, but I can tell you for sure, they taste awesome! We will get some decent ones together for the actual holiday.
