Many gainers have the same calorie/fat/carb/protein content as meal replacements, the only difference being in how the're used - as a between meal snack rather than as a meal replacement.
I use unflavored microfiltered whey protein isolate from a local dairy. Syntrax Medical is a microfiltered whey (cold processed so the proteins remain intact). Cold process whey dissolves easier in liquids and has a milder, more milky flavor).
In a pinch, I will dissolve it into juice or Crystal Light or warm (but not too hot) cocoa.
Otherwise, I'll throw it in a blender with some frozen fruit and almond milk.
