liquid diet help

I did a search on "liquid diet" but didn't turn up much here.

My daughter's mom (we're divorced) is having thyroid surgery in a week and will have to maintain a liquid diet for almost a week. I'm more of a cook than she is, and I volunteered to help (also to demonstrate goodwill between us, in front of our daughter).

So I need help please. I've got the fruit smoothie with whey protein locked up, but am thinking more savory. She loves my chicken soup, so I'm thinking maybe chicken broth and soft rice pureed and mixed with a little whey protein powder. Soft ice cream for dessert. Vegetable and fruit juices.

Any other tips, particularly with respect to savory?

Ooh, a bisque?
