As summer temperatures are increasing - so too is our desire to cool down with refreshing summer snacks! Check out some of our favorite recipes below.
How about an icy cool treat? Popsicles are a delicious summertime favorite. Unfortunately, most of the varieties found in grocery stores are packed with added sugar.
Here at Tooth Fairy HQ, we keep our smiles healthy by enjoying homemade popsicles that have significantly less sugar than store bought varieties.
Unflavored coconut water is rich in potassium, which makes it an excellent electrolyte beverage and the best part is, it contains less sugar than a sports drink.
Popsicle Molds (if your mold doesn’t come with built in plastic popsicle sticks, you can always use good old fashioned wooden popsicle sticks).
¾ cup coconut water
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 cup of fresh fruit (At Tooth Fairy HQ we love strawberries and blueberries, but feel free to use whatever fruit you like best)
Who doesn’t love summertime nachos? Do your smile a favor and sub out those sharp edged tortilla chips for bell pepper chips. Here at Tooth Fairy HQ we love snacking on Bell Pepper Nachos.
The calcium from the cheese and sour cream will help rebuild tooth enamel. The vitamin C found in the salsa and tomatoes will help keep your gums healthy and the arginine found in black beans can also help fight tooth decay. All in all, bell pepper nachos are a smile friendly, Tooth Fairy approved snack!
2 Bell Peppers sliced lengthwise into 1 inch slices (seeds removed)
