I posted this elsewhere and think it may help here too:
I make shakes/smoothies for my Beau with coconut milk, hemp protein powder, Kashi GoLean powder, soy milk, ground flax, Udo's oil and fruit. Sometimes nuts and seeds make an appearance, like cashew macadamia butter.
Let's add that up, without the "extras"!
Banana: 100 calories
Mango: 100 calories
Blueberries: 50 calories
Strawberries: 50 calories
Udo's Oil: 250 calories
Hemp protein powder: 120 calories
Ground flax: 100 calories
Coconut milk: 300 calories
Soy milk (often Silk Plus Omega): 110 calories
Kashi GoLean Vanilla mix: 220 calories http://store.kashi.com/shakes_pd_van...53&Link_ID=20&
So, 1,400 in a SHAKE. 60+ grams of protein. 25+ grams of fiber. I DARE you to try it. It tastes good too.
It can be made with less expensive ingredients too, like more bananas, peanut butter, hemp* and sunflower seed, soy protein powder (Trader Joe's has a good one that is VERY inexpensive and isn't soy protein isolate) whatever low cost good oils are available, more ground flax etc...
*I realize hemp isn't cheap, but it is a nutritional powerhouse. The seeds in bulk may be less expensive than the protein powder, depending on where you shop.
