Our weather has been a bit of a roller coaster lately – cool one day and hot the next. Late last week we suddenly hit upper 70s/low 80s and were digging out our shorts to wear. I’m guilty of indulging in ice cream quite frequently on days like this. A nice, cool treat.
Last year I was pregnant the entire summer and really couldn’t fight off the craving for chocolate ice cream. But I didn’t want all the calories and I still don’t. Thankfully, I found a way around them by making what I call the ‘fake’ shake.
While I cut the calories, I still had one problem – sensitivity to cold foods & beverages. In recent months I’ve noticed that anything too cold will give a couple of my teeth pain which makes it difficult for me to enjoy several of my favorite treats including shakes.
In search of long-lasting relief for my sensitive teeth, I purchased a Colgate Sensitive Toothbrush and Sensitivity Pen. I found it at Kroger in the toothpaste aisle near the pharmacy. (Tip: check Kroger’s website before you shop as many Kroger and Kroger banner stores have a digital coupon right now for Colgate Sensitive Toothbrush and Sensitivity Pen.)
I started using it and noticed an improvement in my teeth sensitivity in about 3 days. The Actis Enamel Pen blocks sensitivity at the source of pain. Simply: Brush, Apply, Go. And, since the pen stores inside the included toothbrush, there is no losing it or forgetting to use it. It’s there and ready every time I brush my teeth.
With my tooth sensitivity finally under control, I was excited to whip up a quick chocolate ‘fake’ shake to enjoy without the fear of pain.

1-1/2 tbsp unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1/2 tsp of Vanilla Extract
