Ensure Shake vanilla flavour can be used as a tasty alternative to milk in rice pudding and on cereal. You could also try Ensure Shake chocolate flavour as an alternative to milk, or try heating it for a delicious hot drink – just be careful not to let it boil as this may affect some of the nutrients.
