Enjoyable thickened drinks for dysphagia

4 August 2023

Meal and snack times can be difficult for those living with dysphagia and needing thickened drinks.

We all know how important it is to make sure we’re getting the vitamins and nutrients we need to stay healthy, but eating with dysphagia can feel like a chore rather than something to enjoy. It can be worrying, and take a long time to prepare and eat even a small snack.

To overcome this, here at Slõ, we developed Slõ Milkshakes+ to give those living with dysphagia a quick way to provide great-tasting nutritional boost, whenever needed.

The + stands for + protein, + calories, + 25 essential vitamins and minerals. There is enough to make it comparable to the nutrition of a small meal!

Simply select a favourite Slõ Milkshake+ flavour – choose from real strawberry, banana or chocolate – mix with fresh whole milk straight from the fridge, and enjoy a delicious, high-calorie milkshake.

This ease of mixing is important.

It takes a lot of effort to make a thickened drink with “Clear” thickeners that come in tubs. Consequently, you won’t see any lumps in a Slõ Milkshake+. It will never go to thick and there will be no funny after-taste. They will taste good; feel smooth, rich and creamy to drink.

Don’t worry about drinking it all in one go – it’ll keep in the fridge all day, so sips can be taken as little or as often as needed – or worry about finding cupboard space for a month’s worth of pre-made thickened drinks or a huge tin of thickening agent – our sachets are easy to store and contain the right amount of thickener for one nutritious milkshake.

Slõ Milkshake+ comes in IDDSI Levels 1, 2 and 3 to suit your needs, and can be delivered straight to your door. To order just go to Slo Milkshake+ Strawberry – 14/28 Sachets – Slõ Drinks (slodrinks.com) You can also order other flavours from there.
