Jay Robb whey powder in vanilla and chocolate are both good -- and they can be mixed with any liquid of your choice. Sometimes pricey, however -- but really good. I also don't mind the whey powder from Trader Joe's, if you have one in your area.
Naturade and Revival Soy are two brands that Dr. Anderson mentions in his appendix, but I've never tried them.
GNC Total Lean™ Lean Shake™ - Vanilla Bean is also lactose-free -- but I've never tried that. I'm pretty sure this is one Dr. A also really likes -- okay found his post on the Simple Diet Facebook page: SIMPLE DIET-ERS: RECOMMENDED SHAKES & ENREES Favorite shakes: GNC Total Mean (Swiss chocolate) and GNC Lean Muscle Meal (Chocolate). Both have 25 g protein, 170 calories, 14 oz—high protein, high volume.
I use Premier Protein It comes in chocolate and vanilla, I can't speak on the vanilla but the chocolate is very good. I have purchased it at Costco in both Canada and the US. Perhaps a soy based protein powder mixed with almond milk would work as well. Good Luck to your friend she has a great mentor! Cheers!
