Starbucks Coffee Ice Cream milkshakes!!!! If you can tolerate hot food you should be able to manage very loose mashed potatoes or perhaps cream of tomato soup. Cold – how about vichyssoise or pureed gazpacho? Creamed spinach? And don’t be a hero – TAKE THE DRUGS!
When I had my wisdom teeth out many years ago, my mother made me peach milkshakes. Milk, vanilla ice cream and canned peaches in the blender. Yum.
V-8 virgin Marys are good too. I’m suspecting that you are probably on a medication for the pain for which mixing with alcohol is not a good idea……
A quick one I do while working at home or perhaps driving off somewhere is some fresh fruit of some kind and plain yoghurt whooped together in the blender. Not too much because it will thin out the yoghurt. Somekind of sweetener, maybe, if the fruit is not sweet enough. The rum part is left out for the roaddrinks.
Ensure and Boost can get really tiring very quickly. Soup and Canadian whiskey is my favorite.

I just had mouth surgery and have stiches in two different places (a lot) and can’t really eat much solid food. Anyone have any good blended meals/recipes they’d like to share because I am getting sick of the taste of Ensure and Boost.
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated[:)]
I had my jaw wired for 6mnths due to an accident, one of my favorites was a powdered protein mix, p-nut butter, bananna and chocolate icecream in a blender but just about anything can go in a blender including 3-4 tacohell tacos! Make up pancakes with all the fixings and blend, your favorite chili, tuna salad, mac&cheese, turkey w/gravy and mashed potatos, pie….. If you need to add liquid and milk doesnt seem inviting try your favorite adult beverage. OK some of it sounds nasty but neccasity is the mother of invention and when your craving pizza… into the blender goes a couple slices
I made a crock pot stew for a friend that had all of his teeth pulled.
2 lb chuck roast
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of celery soup
You can add onioins, celery, carrots, potatoes, garlic
Cook until the meat has completely fallen apart
Hope this helps,
Greek Lemon-Rice soup (maybe pureed just a bit)
I hope you will be back to eating that med rare non liquid fillet soon Salsailsa!
I mix all kinds of things w/ tomato juice or V8. Beef and or chicken broth or bullion, or canned boiled oyster juice w/ whatever kind of seasonings sound good. I got the idea from that Clamoto stuff.
Thanks for all of your kind words and suggestions, everyone.
I’m going to take your advice Roossy and food process some spaghetti. I was thinking about making steak tartare but was a little concerned about my open wounds and the bacteria issue, so I’ll hold off for now. I dunno if I can bring myself to throwing a nice medium-rare fillet into the food processor. It just seems wrong to treat such a wonderful cut of meat that way regardless of how badly I’d like a steak.
When I had my wisdom teeth pulled..
(uh. yeah.. no wise cracks, OK?)
what I did was take everything and just put it into the food processor..
Totally ground it up.
I was just like you..
No more jello. NO MORE soup..
You should have seen the steak.. and the spaghetti and meatballs..
It was good.. It was FOOD!
Thats when I first starting loving my food processor..
I am serious.. Give it a try…
Tastes the same, just looks a hell of alot different!
Uh, I dont advise salads though….[;)]
Hang in there, baby – we’re always here for you!
I would suggest thick soups, like pea soup or really any soup you like if using a blender. Soup is a time honored way to keep nutrition up while recovering from an illness. It might be a good time for canned chili as well. I would suggest meat only chili unless you are using the blender.
Soft buttery cheese that melts in the mouth might be comforting as well as nutritious.
Mashed potatoes with gravy or what you like on them is also a possibility.
Fondue with soft bread is a possibility too.
Peanut butter, cashew butter are all possibilities as well.
Hope these random thoughts help. Get well!
i’m just glad to know you’re feeling better.
