Oregon Summer Berry Smoothie Recipe

Oregon Summer Berry Smoothie Recipe from Treehouse Kids Dentist

With Summertime here and many kids at home during the day, the amount of snacking greatly increases. Foods such as cookies, crackers, gummies, juice and soda are the major culprits in the development of cavities. Bacteria love these simple carbohydrates because they are easily “digestible” and the bacteria then excrete an acid onto teeth that dissolves the enamel.

Healthier options for children include fruits, vegetables, nuts and cheeses. Below is a delicious smoothie recipe, perfect for Oregon summer berries:

  • 1 cup fresh or frozen berries
  • 1 ripe banana
  • 1 cup plain, nonfat yogurt
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen spinach or kale
  • 1/2 cup liquid of your choice: water, coconut water, almond milk, etc

Blend together and enjoy!
