Lightbulb Recipes for Ensure and Boost drinks??

Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone has any recipes to try and mask the taste of the meal replacement drinks like Ensure or Boost? My sister's doctor has recommended that she use the drinks because her throat is so sore but she hates the taste of them. So....any and all replies would be helpful.

Re: Recipes for Ensure and Boost drinks??

The radiologist nurse gave me this recipe for my mom,

it is one cup of milk,
1/2 instant milk (like carnation)
one large scoop of vanilla ice cream
1 tsp vanilla
I also added 1/4 c of heavy cream
pulse it in a blender and serve
my mom who can not stand the ensure was able to
drink this as cold as I could get it with her sore

I also take the liquid yogurts and add cream and ice cream to them
and blend they worked too
Hope this helps

GNC sells a protein drink for body builders. I would make my hubby a regular vanilla shake, milk and ice cream, and throw in a couple tbs. of the protien powder. I never told him I did this and he always drank it without complaining, like he did with the Boost or Ensure. Good luck to your sister!
