Do you have a sweet tooth? I sure do! Doesn’t really matter what it is…I just like a little something sweet now and then. But here is a little secret! I always feel better indulging my sweet tooth when it includes something that might actually be good for me. Apples…check! Banana…check! Yogurt…check! See what I did there. I just satisfied my sweet tooth by adding some yummy healthy goodness in with it, always remember though, just because you’re including healthy additions, these sweet treats can still be detrimental to your oral health if left unchecked. If you have a sweet tooth make sure to keep frequent appointments with your local surgery similar to this Dentist in Fairfax, for example. This yummy cinnamon apple pie smoothie is just what you need for a healthy sweet snack.
Now comes the fun part. Add a little ice cream and you have a special treat. These smoothies are easy to make and will really hit the spot.
