Without having the full taste and from the very start, I never did like the taste of Ensure. I could tolerate Boost a little better. I am drinking vanilla Ensure because the VA has them, but not Boost. For veterans who need Ensure and under VA care, check with them since it is a prescription item.
With advice from the food experts, I tried it with ice cream, coffee, coke, chocalate or strawberry syrup or other mixtures. There was only a slight improvement.
A week ago, I bought a can of unsweetened chocolate powder. I mixed just over a teaspoon into about a half inch of hot water in a coffee cup. Then, I added a can of Ensure, mixed it, then heated it in the microwave. Voila, that is the combination that works for me.
Hope this mixture or any one of those named above helps someone else and makes our soupy :) life more tolerable.
