Use MLO Rice Protein (www.mloproducts.com)

If it is not in your local health food store, you can buy it online here:
www.veganessentials.com (it's only $10 there and VeganEssentials on this board owns the site, so you'll be supporting a fellow vegan)

So, here's the shake:

1/2 frozen banana
3-4 strawberries
Almond milk or Rice milk (1 cup/8 ounces)
Rice protein
Peanut butter (1 Tablespoon)

There you go

Rice protein is good, I have also had good results with vegetable protein. Naturade is a good brand.

If you drink a lot of shakes it might be good to stay away from fruit with seeds in it. I make my rice shakes with frozen peaches or mangos and blueberries. (Along with rice milk and some flaxseeds, maybe some liquid B12.)

that sounds very similar to my shakes. i made one for my lifting partner (not veggie) the other day and he really liked it. so did another friend at the gym, (older man ultraconservative) when i offered him a taste of mine. boy was i suprised! :shock:

veganito, do other soy products give you flatulence? Can you eat tofu? SILKEN is best for shakes, but soft works great too. Find it in the refrigerated section of the market. Even a high-protein soymilk would be good, or nut milk (check to see if it has a good amount of protein).

If so, it has lots of protein and if you add nuts, for example, Almonds are a good protein source, and actually makes a complete protein. You wanted that too, right? :)

Check here for combos for protein: PROTEIN COMBOS

And kls just reminded me about wheat grass! It has lots of protein:

"Dehydrated wheat grass is a rich source of Vitamins A, C and K and provides other vitamins as well. It contains some ninety different minerals, and is more concentrated in iron than spinach. It averages 25 per cent protein (more than meat, fish, eggs, beans or dairy products)."

wheat grass may have some other good qualities, but the quantity consumed is so small that the protein intake may not be even worth mentioning? Perhaps couple grams/shot?

That's true, but it's an added source of protein for veganito to consider. I was just suggesting any alternative sources for him since that is what he is asking.
Even nuts aren't a lot alone :).

I assumed most greens contain similar properties so the antioxidant claims don't sound outlandish to me. Cats and dogs and cows eat it and it does their bodies good :P.
