Default Need post-workout snack suggestions, please!

I try and do 3 pretty intense workouts a week (heavy lifting and either running or biking afterwards). I need something afterwards so I'm not raiding the fridge.

I do have some conditions, though, because I live abroad and we're on a budget:
-no nuts (way too expensive here )
-no pre-packaged protein bars/shakes (again due to expense) but if you had any recipes I'd definitely love to hear them!
-fruit is great and all but not filling enough, definitely need something more.
-I love string cheese (well, just cheese in general!) but it's also pretty expensive here too.

Today I had a glass of chocolate milk+flax seed. That was ok but I'm not a big milk drinker (don't like the taste after not drinking it for years).

Ok, sorry for being so picky but I'd really appreciate the ideas!

If you're lifting heavy, you should replenish with a protein. Is yogurt (Greek with fruit is my favorite) really pricey by you too? How about cottage cheese topped with fresh fruit? Another fav post-workout is a couple of boiled eggs.
Whatever you choose, make sure it's a carb + protein combo, as it'll keep you fuller for longer.
