This is how I make an egg cream, but there're tons of variations out there:

4 eggs, raw
1/4 c heavy cream (sometimes just 2T if I'm high on cals that day)
1/3 to 1 c trader joe's unsweetened coconut milk, depending on how thick/big I want it to be (in the carton)
a few drops ezSweets
dash salt
1/2 t vanilla
generous sprinkle of cinnamon

Just blend it all. I use an immersion blender, but you could probably just shake it or wisk.

I also like it with a couple T peanut butter and caramel SF toriani syrup and I often put in a T of coconut oil if I can spare the calories. I've made a pumpkin version a few times with 2T pumpkin and a large dash of pumpkin pie spice.

I do a chocolate egg cream shake that tastes like a milkshake.

1-2eggs(yes they are raw)
1 cup unsweetened coconut or almond milk
walden's farm chocolate syrup(I don't measure)
Torani's chocolate syrup(don't measure this either-sorry)
handful of ice cubes

Blend it all up! Yummy.

Someone mentioned blender chicken salad. Here's my recipe. It's very smooth. It is similar to oatmeal in its 'chewability;.

7 to 10 oz cooked chicken breast, diced
1/2 pack silken tofu, cubed
mayo to taste, 1/3 to 1/2 cup
a squirt of dijon mustard
salt, pepper
a little onion or onion powder
a little garlic powder
a dash of hot sauce.

Blend all together. I use a food processor, but a blender will work.... might have to add a few tbl of warm broth to get the texture right if using a blender.

(I add finely diced celery and peppers to it after it is blended, but you wouldn't want that, because that part needs chewing)

I can highly recommend Linda Sue's Beefy Mushroom Soup.
For your needs, strain the solids and puree them in your blender, then add them back to the soup. Good nutrition, and it really is delicious. My non-LC husband polished off the batch in no time, and I plan on making more soon.

I made mine with leftover pot roast meat instead of ground beef.

I make scrambled eggs all the time as a quick lunch or breakfast. There are lots of ways to vary the flavor - eggs go with all kinds of things!

I'll usually add a couple of spices that typically go together, along with one or two other ingredients - cumin, rosemary, a squeeze of lemon juice, and feta cheese for Greek scrambled eggs, for example, or garlic, cilantro, red pepper, and avocado for Tex-Mex eggs.

yes, it's all about either the blender or the food processor.

I would say to consume a lot of cream in milkshake type drinks. blenders will crush ice into the drink if you drop the cubes into the liquid while the motor is running. don't put them in before you start it.

I would make sure that everything I was eating was in liquid form -- no lumps. This is only going to happen for a few weeks so drink your food.

That sounds awful. I think everyone has given you great ideas. Will say a prayer for you that you heal quickly.

So sorry for your situation! Because of a birth defect, my son cannot chew. This is how I manage his food:

1. I suggest a mini food processor. There are several inexpensive brands, and the best is one that is capable of running blades clockwise as well as counter clockwise. These work better than a blender and are much easier to clean.

2. Cook all your meats in a crockpot or low slow in the oven and completely covered by liquid. This gives the most tender meat. Puree it with broth or cooking liquid.

3. Use canned vegetables or cook your veggies until very soft.

4. Add cream, sour cream, butter, broth, salad dressing, mayo, cream cheese, or cottage cheese to meats and veggies to get a smoother texture.

It seems weird, but I puree everything for him. One of his favorite things is peanut butter, banana, and cream. The cream helps, since peanut butter can be sticky. I know the banana is out doing low carb, but perhaps you'd like the peanut butter and cream with a little cinnamon added.

Sure hope this helps and that you have a speedy recovery.
