Homemade Dairy Free, Gluten Free, All Natural Nutrition Shake: Homemade Pediasure

Thank you, everyone, for the unbelievable response Happyto my homemade Pediasure recipe! Wow! I have been overjoyed and thrilled with the pictures and stories of your little ones enjoying their nutrition shake!!

I heard out your many requests for a gluten free version as well as a banana free version since many kiddos that struggle with constipation must avoid consuming bananas. And so, I went to work to find the right combination of ingredients. All of the recipes below are gluten free, and most are banana free as well. I hope your child enjoys them either through the tube Empty cupor orally! Bradley has been orally drinking anywhere from half to all of his homemade nutrition shakes daily and is coming along slowly but surely with his oral eating. We have a long journey ahead still, but he’s come so far!

  1. Where do you find hemp seeds and raw buckwheat groats? Also I have a friend who wants to try some of these but her son can have dairy. What would you do? Replace milk with water? Thanks for your great ideas! Deb

    1. Hi there, sorry for the delayed response! My phone had logged me out and I wasn’t getting notifications…did not realize and I’m so sorry!

      I purchase hemp seeds from Costco and go to Whole Foods in their bulk section for buckwheat groats. They can also be found on amazon if you can’t find them in your area. Yes, you could use milk or anything else you think would best adapt this recipe to a child’s needs. Hope this helps!
