Ensure Recipes

After leaving the hospital 9 pounds heavier on December 6, I was under a strict meal plan to ensure (haha, get it?) that I didn’t lose the weight that I put on. Unfortunately for me, that meant an Ensure (or any other high protein, high cal supplement drink) with every meal.

Now, in a specialized eating disorders program, my meal plan still includes at least three Ensures daily.

As you might imagine, they got old real fast. I’ve had fun getting creative with it, though. Here are some ways that have helped me stomach the copious amount of Ensures:

Oatmeal

You guys probably saw this one coming. I love my oatmeal. I prefer using the chocolate flavoured ones for this. It is a perfect high energy alternative for the chocolate milk/milk alternative in any recipe.

 

Smoothies

Slush

Blending any flavoured Ensure with ice gives it a different consistency, which is a nice change up, especially when you’re drinking three a day!

 

Coffee Creamer

This one is my favourite. I, personally, like a nice cup of black coffee, but I would be lying if I said I don’t enjoy a cup with chocolate or vanilla Ensure splashed in my cup.

If you have any other ideas please leave them in the comments!
