Does any vegan equivalent of Ensure exist?

Unfortunately, even a tiny amount of milk is a no-go (vegan with a casein allergy).

If not, is there something I could mix up myself?

Silk has soy smoothies: http://www.silksoymilk.com/Products/SilkLive.aspx

Is that close to what you're looking for? I've tried the peach and mango flavors, and I love them!! I also think they are close in price to Ensure.

Arbonne also has protein shakes with a lot of vitamins and minerals, so if you're interested let me know!


ETA: Arbonne's shakes are pea protein, not soy.

My problem is *finding* any of these products in Canada (or more specifically, Saskatoon, SK - AKA the middle of nowhere). Ordering over the internet is not a viable solution at this time.

I found one site online that suggested:

A)

1/2 cup frozen fruit

1/2 tsp. vanilla

1/2 cup juice or water or soy milk

1 T. sugar

2-3 T. protein powder

Mix well in blender.

B)

1/4 can sweetened condensed milk (adjust to taste)

1 tsp. vanilla

1/2 cup fresh strawberries

1/2 cup whole milk

2-3 T. protein powder

Mix well in blender.

To add to that, if I can find soymilk powder...

BRYANNA'S SWEETENED CONDENSED SOYMILK equal to a 14 oz. can of sweetened condensed milk-- 1 and 2/3 c.

THis is from my book "Soyfoods Cooking for a Positive Menopause".

I devised this primarily to make Vietnamese Coffee, but it can be used in baking and candy-making instead of the dairy product. It's fast to make and keeps in the refrigerator for several weeks.

1 c. light unbleached sugar or white beet sugar

2/3 c. boiling water

6 T. bulk soymilk powder

5 T. isolated soy protein powder

1 T. melted good-tasting nondairy margarine (Earth Balance)

Combine all ingredients in a blender until the sugar is dissolved and the mixture is thick. Pour into a clean jar, cover and refrigerate. It thickens when chilled.

This makes the second recipe (B) seem wayyy too sugar- and calorie-loaded, even for what I'm after. Hmm.
