Who's ready for smoothies?? This smoothie is great for maintaining healthy gum tissues because of the high levels of Vitamin C found in the kiwi and mixed berries. Kiwis contain more vitamin C than any other fruit for their size including the Vitamin C packed orange. But just in case weve added an orange to this recipe as well!

Kokomo Detox Smoothie: * 1 banana * 1 cup of pineapple * 1 cup of coconut water (Vita Coco Pineapple flavor is recommended. Vita Coco is 100% pure and NOT from concentrate – you can taste the difference) * 2 cups of greens (baby kale, spinach, and red chard are all good options, or grab a mix of all three! Earthbound Farms makes an awesome “Power Greens” mix featuring all three.)
Choosing floss for your child can be difficult especially if theyre new to flossing. Dental tape is a great solution for young flossers.

Southwestern Dip from Paula Deen. Make you own dry mix to have on hand then mix it up with sour cream and mayo. (I would use low fat sour cream and mayo.) The mix would make a great gift idea for the holidays!
