Palatable, affordable, and hypoallergenic protein powder: too much to ask?

My doc says I need to get a lot of protein in my diet and recommended 2 smoothies a day with at least 25g protein each.
I'm allergic to gluten, casein, egg, soy and rice (among others) which limits my choices of powders. I was told to check out i5 and Opticleanse GHI but either of them would cost about sixty dollars a week! And both contain rice, which seems weird to me. Hemp is also an option, but I can't seem to find any reviews.
Ideally the flavors would be neutral so I can mix it with fruit (or chocolate) and not too grainy. Has anybody tried anything they like? Is hemp or rice better? Is it worth it to break the bank on the powders suggested by my doc?
