Stimulating your saliva production can help reduce the buildup of plaque deposits, reducing your risk for cavities. Pears stimulate saliva production plus they contain a significant amount of water which, when chosen as a snack over highly acidic foods, will help reduce the risk of enamel damage. When you need “that little sweet” after a meal, nothing beats a pear.
- whole fresh pears
- frozen yogurt
- mint garnish
Peel and cut pears into spears & place in a microwavable dish. Sprinkle with cinnamon. Fill base with water a quarter of the way up the pears. Microwave until tender-about 3 minutes. Serve on your favorite frozen yogurt or drizzle with mashed raspberries!
