When I'm tired, thristy, somewhat hungry (my stomach can get very wimpy with fatigue and strained blod flow) and I have passed my supper time on the bike, I don't necessary crave a big bowl of pasta. So yes, i find myself making a big smoothie to get back some energy in the machine. I like to mix things up, but usually the protein source in it are either yogurt, milk, soft tofu, sometimes I put a big tablespoon of nonfat powdered milk for added proteins. The rest depends on what's in the freezer or available around: bananas, berries, kiwis, orange juice, pears, pineapple puree. If I have a sweet tooth, I'll put maple syrup or honey in there too.
I sometimes top it off with wheat germ for a bit of fatty acids and still some more proteins. I like smoothies. Very practical, and cuts off a big part of thirst, also!
