    One of my favorite smoothies I make is super easy: cup of OJ, banana, and vanilla protein powder. I have one for breakfast regularly.

    You can also put raw spinach and carrots in to a smoothie; if you also use apple juice, it will taste like apples....it might be green, but doesn't taste like it.

    Best of luck!

    I had no problem talking with my jaw wired shut. Its just like talking with clenched teeth.

    Bolthouse farms makes some really tasty smoothies! Some have 30g of protein. Strawberry banana is my favorite. They are really healthy with no preservatives or artificial anything. The protein shakes are very filling. They are in the produce section of most large grocery stores.

    My brother had to have his mouth wired shut and I can remember my mom blending chicken strips with broth ect ect. He also ate baby food. I remember him thinking the sweet potatoes were good once doctored up.

    Sound miserable though. So Sorry!

    My teeth automatically clench when I am dealing with a patient who is using the call light every 5 minutes.
