Vegan Meal Replacement Powder

I never feel like eating a big breakfast before work, so I usually mix up a meal replacement drink. I'm not vegan yet, so lately it's been Carnation Instant Breakfast, but I want to replace this with something vegan in the near future. My only requirement is that it doesn't require a blender. I want to be able to just stir the powder into some water or soymilk and then go. There are a few brands available at veganessentials.com but I wanted to know if you had any experiences with these products before I spend a lot of money on them. I would also not be adverse to making my own meal replacement powder if you guys have any ideas on how to do so.

help! hummus too runny

Ok, so I am really bad at making hummus. I always seem to mess it up. Well, this time I added too much water and my hummus is way too runny to be appetizing. Is there anything I can do to make it thicker? Should I just toss it? BTW, I don't have any extra chickpeas on hand.
