These are Shake Recipes provided to me from my trainer Clint Howard. When my husband was struggling to eat food, I bought lots of soft stuff including Protein Powder and meal replacement powder. Lately, since he is eating just fine, I've been making some of these shakes and find them very tasty. Hopefully they will be of some help to your families too.

Thanks for all the great ideas. I have been trying to find different things to mix into my husbands shakes. We have been using Jay Robb whey protien chocolate flavor but it alone does not have many calories. So I have been adding peanut butter, almond milk and chocolate syrup to boost up the caloric intake. These recipes have given me some good ideas. Thanks again!

Thanks so much. I printed them all out for my sister in law. She is always trying to come up with something to put in the blender to make for my brother to drink and these are perfect.
Thank you for sharing!
