    Thanks for the tip . However, I hadn't even considered using eggs in any form in a smoothie. I have been thinking only fruit and veg options, and for now, that is the route I wish to explore.

    And if you are like me then you just can't get enough. You are lucky, you are closer to France than I. Have to agree with the meat texture problem. Drinking the meatloaf, peas and mashed potatoes was good tasting but weird feeling.

    I had a broken jaw once and my girlfriend put meat loaf, peas and mashed potatoes in the blender and it was pretty easy to get down (jaw not wired.). The color is not too nice...or can you not handle meat at all?

    I need to get a decent blender, rather than a juicer, to make drinks. In Britain we have adverts for the Nutribullet all over the place, which appears to be the type of machine I need. However, my experience is that the best item on the market generally needs less marketing.

    Any recommendations on a machine that basically can cope with turning linseeds/flax seeds and nuts as well as hard veg into a drink?
    Any commercial quality blender will do the job just fine. It's the motor that does all the work, so get one with enough power to do what you need.

    But since you will recover rapidly, don't spend the family inheritance on the thing unless you plan to make a lot of margaritas afterwards.

    Have no facts to offer, just wishing you a speedy recovery!

    Even a blender is going to leave some small solids, not sure if that's okay for your particular post-op condition. Blending a couple of times and applying heat, or then juicing might be the only way I could see you processing something into really fluid pastes. Commercial products may be an easier option and, although I'd normally argue against them, contain either extra or more easily digested nutrients and calories.
