I can't afford supplements all the time so is there anything else that i can use as a substitute? These days i put up with 2 cups of milk, 3-4 bananas and peanut butter for my shake :(

I want to improve the protein quantity of my shake anyway i can with the above constraints. Trying to bulk, by the way, so any info would be great.

I don't know if you would taste the cottage cheese/milk/yogurt but that's all I can think of that will give you some good protein w/o tasting so bad in a shake.

Plain yogurt has about 16g of protein per cup

Powdered milk. (Normally used for baking, milkshakes and coffee)
It would taste great in your shakes, and it's not expensive compared to whey.
You can buy a giant bag of it from Price Club or your local supermarket for $15 Canadian for 5kg bag.
1 cup of powdered milk has 24 grams of protein compared to 1 cup of 1%milk which has only 9 grams of protein. Drink Up!

oats blend them first into a powder 100g = 350 cals roughly and lots of carbs

The only difference is that it is dehydrated into powder form so you can get 3x the nutrition in a 1 cup serving.

Powdered Skim Milk 1cup; 245 cals, 24g protein, 0g fat, 0.3g saturated fat, 12mg cholestorol, 35g carbs, 373mg sodium.

Lowfat Skim Milk 1cup; 125 cals, 9g protein, 5g fat, 2.9 saturated fat, 18mg cholesterol, 12g carbs, 128mg sodium.

It tastes great, I put it in fruit smoothies along with a cup of milk for the rich taste and it is relatively cheap.

Great carb source, and yet he said he wanted a protein source.

cottage cheese along with the milk and a little ice, or just freeze your banana and i recommend a little splenda and cinnamon for flavor. It makes it have a milkshake consistency. And you won't taste the cottage cheese.

ermm... another big difference is the fat content/overall calories (powdered being much lower).

All the more better....cheaper, tastier, higher in protein + nutrition, lower in fat......need I go on? Go and get you some powdered milk.
