Chocolate, Strawberry, and Banana Milkshake

Chocolate, Strawberry, and Banana MilkshakeMy daughter just got braces and her mouth and teeth are hurting her badly. To cheer her up this afternoon, after an excruciating orthodontist appointment, I made her a chocolate, strawberry, and banana milkshake. She wanted just chocolate but I decided to throw some fruit in to make it semi healthy. Both she and my son really loved their milkshakes and thankfully it made her sore mouth feel a little bit better.

    Oh, the dreaded braces! I feel so bad for your daughter, Pam. My daughter had to wear braces for three years, but the first 2 weeks were the worst! She lost 5 lbs. in the first week (which she could not afford to lose, unlike me) dispite the fact that I was making her milkshakes for every meal! It does get better, and it is all worth it in the end, but those first couple of weeks are the pits!

    Milkshakes, scrambled eggs, applesauce, yogurt – all excellent choices right after your braces are adjusted. I had them for 3 years as an adult, I would take an Advil right after the adjustment and then take a nap, typically. Doesn't always work timewise but it always made me feel better!

    My youngest son has been measured for braces, and I have to go talk to the orthodontist about the plan of attack tonight. So your daughter has my sympathy. I'll have to remember this milkshake for my son.

    I had braces for six years and the entire experience would have been MUCH better if my mom had made me this milkshake!

    The milkshake sounds great, I like the flavor combination. I am glad it made your daughter feel better. I remember when my kids got their braces, it was no picnic, but the end result is worth it.

    i remember when i got braces–my face hurt for weeks, nay, years, but the worst part was the first few days. a milkshake like this would definitely ease the pain!
