Advice on meal-replacement shakes?

About once a month I spend a day or two bed-ridden with a migraine. For at least a day after that I have a hard time eating anything since I get full very, very quickly during these phases. On a frame like mine, this makes it awfully hard to keep weight on. My parents suggested that a vegan drink along the lines of Ensure might be helpful. Given what these things often cost, I'd rather not just buy one of everything on the market. Priorities are:

  • Balanced nutritional profile
  • Not disgusting
  • Not designed to be low-calorie
  • Not a full-on recipe. I'd be happy to add frozen berries or something to powder and soy milk, but these are not times when I feel like anything complicated--or when I'm likely to have many groceries on hand.

    Recommendations? Ones you've tried that I should avoid?
