Okay so this is not a Kitchen Grandmother recipe - it's actually a Laura recipe. But since I've been drinking them morning, noon, and night - No, I'm not kidding - I thought I might as well write down the recipe in  case it was helpful to anyone else.

This shake can help you recover from an illness that caused unexpected/unwanted weight loss. It's also great for growing boys who are eating you out of house and home (G8R!)

It has 870+ calories or so depending on how you make yours and about 40g  of protein

2 cups whole milk
Chocolate Protein powder 1 scoop - I prefer soy but whey will work.
Peanut or Almond butter 1/4 cup
Ground flaxseeds 1 tbsp - for those important, brain saving Omegas!
Canola, Almond, or Avocado oil 1 tbsp (or in a pinch you can use olive oil)
Banana 1- the riper the better taste and better for you. Remember spots = healthful :)
Blend together putting liquids in your blender first. Blend to desired consistency adding ice to taste.
