    Here is an easy way to pack some calories and protein away with very little use of powders.

    100g oatmeal (~400 cal) (13 gram protein)
    100g peanut butter (588 cal)(24g protein)
    2 tablespoons cocoa
    1 banana (~100 cal)
    2-3 cups whole milk (300-450 cal) (24g protein)

    I add in 1/4 cup egg white protein cause it's what I have on hand, for another 16g protein and a full amino profile, but it could be topped off with BCAA to guarantee leucine content instead. I'll probably switch to using 50/50 pea/rice powder for a full amino profile from more natural sources.

    This sounds good, and is pretty much plant-based. I'd found another "fat shake" recipe with a lot of oil that made me gag.

    As I understand it, the body levels off its protein absorption at about 50g. You can toy with that if you use casein, which breaks down over several hours. Since about 80% of the milk protein is casein, this recipe probably just about tops out.

    I have to chuckle at all you guys who have to eat so much to gain weight. Mr. UberEndomorph here would love to have that problem :-) I have to eat around 1200-1500 calories per day to lose 2 lbs. per week. I could easily pack on 2-3 lbs a week of body fat if I worked at it. I've never had good abs. On the other hand, the huge legs and 16" biceps were a breeze. Different strokes
