This Vegan Weight Gain Drink Has Natural Anti-Inflammatory Properties: Great for Helping You Gain Weight Fast

As we all know, in order to gain weight, you must take in more calories than you burn every day. Getting all of you calories from food can be a daunting task.

According to the Mayo Clinic,  in order to put on a pound of weight in a week you need to take in 500 extra calories each day.

As a rule of thumb, I have been successfully gained 20 pounds by taking in 1/4 to 1/3 of my daily calorie needs from weight gain shakes. I have already written about my best tasting weight gain shake here.

I want to share with you a weight gain shake that has helped me through brutal workouts that can be hell on your joints.

This delicious weight gain shake is not only packed with the calories, protein and vitamins to help you put on weight fast. It also has natural anti-inflammatory benefits that have been critical to me powering through my workout routine.

It’s also vegan!

Here is what you need:

1 Cup Coconut Milk

2 Scoops Orgain Plant Based Vanilla Protein

2 tsp Ground Turmeric

1 tsp Ground Cinnamon

1/2 tsp Ground Ginger

1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract

1 Small Pinch Black Pepper

Here is how you make it:

1. Combine all the ingredients in a saucepan with the heat on low to medium. Stir until you have brought the mixture to a simmer.

2. Empty the contents of the pan into your blender of choice. Blend the ingredients for 45 seconds or until there is a healthy froth.

3. Pour into your mug and chug!

Blender – The key to a good blender is one that is big enough to hold your protein shake, powerful enough to blend frozen bananas, and easy to use. I have been making this weight gain shake for years and have tried it using many different blenders. Here is a list of my personal favorites ranked by price:

Magic Bullet – ($35) This is a perfect starter blender because of its price point. If you are just starting out on your weight gain journey, pick this up and get started right away.

Nutribullet NBR –  ($59.99) My favorite part about this Nutribullet is how the container turn into your cup after you are finished blending. Nowhere near as power as the Vitamix, but it gets the job done quickly and effectively.

Vitamix E310 Explorian – ($299.99) If you haven’t heard of Vitamix before, it is the Cadillac of blenders. Besides longevity, the Vitamix is great because it pulverizes better other blenders cannot because of the powerful motor. This means no more seeds in your shakes. If you make protein shakes on a daily basis and want a blender that might outlive you, pick this up.
