If you don't mind making the shakes up every time you need one (they come together fast anyway, it's not much trouble,) then I would HIGHLY recommend Spiru-tein soy protein shakes by Nature's Plus.I get mine at the health food store, they may order it for you if they don't carry it already. You just pop a scoop in with a cup of soy milk and give it a spin in the blender. They're incredibly tasty too. With a cup of soy milk, they have about twenty-two grams of protein, along with 100% of most of your essential vitamins and minerals. I know Spiru-tein also carries premade shakes in cans, but I'm sure they're quite pricey, so if you can spare the time in prep, I'd stick with the powder. You can buy a 2 lb. can of powder (about 32 shakes) for around thirty dollars, cheaper if you can find it online. (I buy mine offline now, for somewhere around twenty bucks plus shipping.) I've been vegan for a while now, and I've gotten awfully creative with this powder... it's a great soy ice cream base. :) If you're using it as a preworkout shake, it's got plenty of protein, but you'll want to mix in a source of carbs, there aren't enough in the shake on it's own. Fruit goes naturally with just about every flavor, so this isn't difficult. (Frozen bananas blended with Chocolate Spiru-tein... heaven in a cup. :) )My vote is for Chocolate-Peanut Butter Swirl or Strawberry, but I know they carry about twelve different flavors. Wow, I sound like a sales rep... I'm not I swear, I just love these shakes. :) Hope I helped!
