I make my own weight gain shakes because I haven’t found a decent one that isn’t mainly sugar and piss quality protein. It goes a little something like this: 1 cup milk, 2 cups water, 2 tbs peanut butter, cup of oats, 2 scoops whey, packet of equal, 1 cup of non fat plain yogurt, ice cubes. I forgot what it calc’ed out macros wise but its a weight gain shake. Keep up the good work bro!
