After my step-father was diagnosed with a swallowing disorder, we had to come up with inventive ways for him to get adequate nutrition. So I am gathering recipes in hopes we can give him some variety, and help him get the nutrition and calories he needs so he doesn't lose so much weight so quickly.

Don't let the cauliflower fool you, you can't taste it. If you prefer not to use frozen fruit like I do, feel free to add fresh fruit and ice cubes. All values are approximate.Submitted by DETERMINEDAGAIN
With the strong flavor of orange and strawberries, combined with creamy banana and a surprisingly smooth taste from spinach, you get at least 2.5 servings of fruit & veggies! Pretty awesome..Submitted by KRAVMAGAGIRL
A filling breakfast or post-workout recovery drink, this protein-packed smoothie tastes just like strawberry cheesecake! You can also substitute any other fruit for the strawberries, or add half the strawberries and half a different kind of fruit. (We love the classic strawberry banana combo!)Submitted by OILPAINTER
I used to love grabbing smoothies, until I stumbled across the nutrition facts! I was really in shock when I looked up the nutritional information for my favorite smoothie, the jamba juice banana berry smoothie. The smoothie can contain up to 560 calories, and GET THIS, 115g of sugar. You think you are doing something good for your body, instead you are overloading it with tons of added sugar and other hidden culprits like frozen yogurt and sherbet! While the froyo and sherbet they add are fat free, they are desserts in themselves, and not something I want in mid day pick me up.
I came up with a smoothie that is just as creamy, thick and sweet as jambas smoothies, without all the added calories, sugar, and frozen desserts.
