Healthy Summer Smoothies

We all know how important fruits and veggies are for our overall health, but they’re also incredibly important to keeping your teeth and mouth healthy as well. The calcium and vitamin D in fresh produce can go a long way towards keeping your teeth healthy and avoiding extra trips to the dentist for painful and expensive dental problems.

Summer is the perfect time to enjoy fresh, cold smoothies and, as many of the most delicious fruits are in season in summer, you can make smoothies every day without breaking the bank!

Below are two of our favorite delicious smoothie recipes to keep your body (and teeth!) healthy this summer:

Blueberry Mint Green Smoothie

2 cups spinach (tip: freeze the spinach for easier blending)
2 cups blueberry
1 kiwi
3-4 large mint leaves
1 cup coconut water
1 cup ice

Put all ingredients in a blender, mix, pour and enjoy!

Pineapple Coconut Peach Smoothie

1 ½ cups fresh pineapple chunks
1 cup coconut milk
1 cup fresh spinach leaves
1 cup frozen peaches
10 raw almonds
1 tbsp coconut oil (also called coconut butter)
1 cup ice

Blend and enjoy!

We hope you enjoy these summer smoothies as much as we do! For a summer dental checkup, or for more tips on maintaining a healthy smile, please contact Coastal Periodontics, located in Portsmouth, NH!
