Did you know that Elecare has a neat little recipe booklet with great smoothie recipes using their product? Our dietician pointed me that direction and I have to say, all the recipes look amazing. There are a couple Maya can try as is and a few I can likely tweak into what we need. We always use the Elecare Jr. Vanilla flavor.

Elecare is an amino acid based nutritional formula that we use to make up the majority of Maya’s diet. It constitutes so much of it in fact that solid food is kind of like a garnish, not the foundation. Maya’s food list is so very limited that we had to supplement with a formula like this even before she went elemental (only the formula). Most frequently I stuck it in smoothies.
The vanilla flavor smells like a milkshake to us and makes her smoothies deliciously creamy. If you’ve been given an Elecare or Elecare Jr. prescription, definitely check this out. If you’re considering or have been advised to look into Elecare, I truly hope this will help you see that it’s a wonderful product. It saved Maya’s life.
Happy smoothie making!
