Chocolate Banana Shake
This is a quick and easy shake that is filling yet healthy and easy to enjoy with a straw, allowing patients to bypass mouth sores that make eating difficult and painful. To thicken this drink, try adding some plain or vanilla yogurt. Another good addition is a bit of uncooked oatmeal, which lends texture and nutrition.
