not enough protein

I am 5 months out from RNY surgery and I'm really struggling to get in all my protein. I'm thinking that I should start back on shakes. Any suggestions of your favorites? I really need quick grab-and-go ones.

My all time favorite is Syntrax Nectar cappuccino, but it's a powder, so not quite grab and go.  It mixes well in a shake cup with a lid, though.

I also like Chike iced coffee a lot.  It also mixes well in a shaker cup.

For a ready to drink, I think my favorite brand is Oh Yeah.  I like both the banana and the cookies n cream.  But I like the Syntrax Nectar more.

Not super strong.  I actually like to add a little bit of decaf instant coffee crystals to it to make it a bit stronger tasting.  I love it, mixed with milk or soy milk.  With water, not so much.  With milk, it reminds me of one of those bottled Starbucks frappuccino things.

I second the nectar and Oh yeah!.  I like making my Nectar the night before though so the foam settles by morning.

Is this whey protein?

The Syntrax Nectar is whey isolate.  The Chike I think is either whey concentrate or a combination of whey isolate and whey concentrate.  I don't remember what the Oh Yeah is.  Off hand I would guess a combo of whey isolate and whey concentrate and maybe some calcium caseinate, too.
