Making your own meal replacement shake

I didn't include this shake in my list of favorite recipes, since it's not a truly wholesome meal that I encourage everyone to make. But there's a reason why shakes and powders like Soylent or Huel (or worse, Muscle Milk) are so popular: The convenience of a meal replacement shake can solve problems. I use them semi-regularly, often in the evening, if I've run out of time to cook and would be skipping a meal or ordering restaurant food otherwise. Sometimes, when my energy is sapped by my depression, a meal shake provides some relief by eliminating a stressor. You can also use shakes for a ready-to-go breakfast or during travel, helping you avoid the nearest drive-thru or junk food.
