Ensure Plus milkshake style is best served chilled and can be frozen into cubes and lollipops. Coffee and chocolate flavours also taste great when warmed and served as a hot drink. The neutral variety can be flavoured with milkshake powder, coffee or cocoa. It can also be mixed with packet soup, or used instead of milk in drinks, breakfast cereals and puddings. Ensure Plus milkshake style should never be boiled however, as this can destroy some of the much-needed nutrients.
