It is hard not to enjoy a smoothie even when your appetite may not be what it once was. When your mouth is sore and you have ulcers, smoothies are a great way to get the nutrients you need for treatment and recovery.

Shelli always enjoyed a watermelon smoothie with mint and ice! I would keep bags of frozen watermelon in the freezer for that purpose. For Shelli, the colder the drinks were the better.

Another was a berry and banana smoothie. I found this Mixed Berries and Banana Smoothie (and Smoothie Bowl) on Food NetworkConsider this recipe a two-for-one. You can blend the smoothie ingredients together and serve in a glass as a drinkable snack, or pour into a bowl and add the toppings for a more substantial meal.


Smoothie: Combine the berries, orange juice, yogurt, banana and honey, if using, in a blender and puree until smooth.

  • 1 cup frozen mixed berries
  • 3/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup low-fat vanilla yogurt
  • 1 frozen ripe banana
  • 1 teaspoon honey, optional

Toppings for a Smoothie Bowl: Pour the smoothie into a bowl. Top with the blueberries, raspberries, vanilla yogurt and granola. Sprinkle with the chia seeds.

  • 1/4 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1/4 cup fresh raspberries
  • 2 dollops low-fat vanilla yogurt
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons granola
  • 1 teaspoon chia seed
