I can't eat foods very fast and I don't have time, but I need a lot of calories to aid my workouts. I finally was able to start getting enough calories on GOMAD, but doing so caused my long term intermittent but chronic angioedema to go off the charts. I assume it was the casein protein. Pure whey protein in water causes no problems.
I used heavy cream for awhile, but my stomach started hurting after a few weeks.
I switched to using coconut milk for my shakes. However, in the last week I've started having uncontrollable angioedema. I can't say for certain whether it's the coconut milk yet, because my angioedema has always been delayed onset. However, I'd like to try something else.
Is there any safe food that can give me the fat density and ease of consumption of heavy cream or coconut milk?
Is there any way to use lard or tallow in a drink? Maybe even a hot one?

I make my own almond milk with 1 c soaked almonds and 3 c h2o in the blender and strain out the pulp if you wish then use it in shakes. For a fast solution just use a handful of nuts in your shakes with and avocado, stevia, some greens etc. in the blender. I also do a soup style blender drink with cashew, zucchini, nutritional yeast flakes, a red pepper some almonds that I found on www.NouveauRaw.com that I can also make into "crackers" in the dehydrator. These crackers really help with a carb craving. Really my Vitamix blender has changed my life and my families.

You could probably knock back a ripe, soft avocado in the same time it would take you to drink coconut milk. (Plus a second or two to take the pit out.) Avocado + spoon. Easy peasy!
Maybe mash up a bunch of avocados and just keep 'em in the fridge for quick grab & go. (Might turn brownish if you don't add lemon or lime juice to preserve the color, but that's just aesthetics.)
If you don't like avocados, maybe some macadamia nut butter? Or any nut butter, for that matter. Jar + spoon. (Some people might jump on you about the n-6, though, which is why I suggested macadamia -- much higher in monounsaturated.)
Maybe homemade pemmican? It can stay pretty soft (and therefore quick/easy to eat), depending on how you make it. Plenty of fat in there
