Milk certainly works, can't go wrong with coconut oil or something similar...also just take a tbsp of olive oil before and after every "meal", calories will just climb...

This is easy, I make stuff like this on a daily basis.

2 cups milk
2 scoops chocolate whey protein
1 cup oatmeal
1 banana
- OR -
1 cup strawberries/raspberries/etc
3 Tbsp peanut butter
ice

Throw that in the blender and enjoy.

If you don't have any protein powder and don't feel like getting some(get Optimum Nutrition 100% whey), you can use yogurt or cottage cheese for some more protein but you'll have to add honey or chocolate syrup to give it enough flavor.

Are you oat-eaters cooking the oatmeal?

You guys are all crazy with the wheat-germ-this and oat-bran-that. This calls for ice cream fellas. Raw egg in it is fine. Breyer's if you're somewhat health conscious. Two good ones from their flavors:

Strawberry + banana + raw egg + milk to desired thickness
Vanilla Fudge Twirl + "

I'm not cooking the oatmeal. I like to get steel cut oats and use those, but the regular Quaker ones are fine too.

Buy some Ensure Plus. It's easy and high calorie.

For medical reasons, I'm supposed to consume a lot of yogurt. I tired quickly of eating it straight, having it over cereal, etc., so I have been making the Indian drink lassi and a lot of smoothies.

Lassi is simple: ~2 parts yogurt to 1 part water, with sugar, fruit, salt, or spices to taste. You can find a lot of complicated recipes online, but the base is simple and flexible. Enjoy!

For the past few months, I have had about one smoothie per day with frozen fruit, yogurt, sugar, and water. I hate cleaning my regular blender, but my hand blender works well inside my 21 oz. glasses, and it is easy to run it through the dishwasher.

To increase the calories of either without increasing the thickness too much, you might try using glucose rather than regular sugar (sucrose). Glucose is not as sweet, so you can add more.

I am curious about what medical condition requires the eating of yogurt...

I don't want to go into my specific details, but there are actually arguments for consuming (probiotic) yogurt in a wide variety of situations. Here are some benefits:

[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] Decreasing the gastrointestinal side effects of antibiotics.
[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] Reducing lactose intolerance.
[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] Promoting regularity.
[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] Reducing ulcers (from H. pylori).
[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] Reducing colon cancer, a common but underemphasized life-threatening cancer.

Obviously, yogurt is also a source of protein and calcium.

There are a few other claims which I'm not sure I believe, or which I don't really care about for myself, but there is a lot of scientific research in this area.
