For seniors with chewing, swallowing or appetite problems, milkshakes can be an excellent vehicle to encourage food consumption. This peanut butter milkshake is a great option for most seniors and can be easily adapted to their taste preferences and nutrient needs.
While still a sweet delight, this milkshake uses a frozen banana instead of ice cream to reduce sugar intake while still retaining the delicious, creamy milkshake experience. For seniors needing extra calories, consider adding more peanut butter, vanilla or chocolate protein powder, oats, an extra banana or even a scoop of ice cream.
Prep time: 5 minutes
