Drink Mixes/Ideas for Sick?

 This may be a super specific, weird post and I wasn't certain if it was vegancooking or veganpeople appropriate. 
I'm really sick lately and one of the new symptoms is a constant nausea that usually turns to vomiting. Nothing seems to stop this or let up so as a result, I'm pretty much unable to eat anything. I don't know how long this particular symptom will last but this being sick thing is going to drag on for at least a few more months so its really important that I be able to get nutrients. Plus, I'm understandably hungry! 

So my question for everyone here was if anyone had any recommendations for drink mixes that either were something like tasteless supplements that could be added to something like a smoothie or something that could just require a non-dairy milk added to it like Instant Breakfast. I don't need anything that promotes weight gain as my illness also has severely limited my mobility so drinking something that'd make me pack on the pounds while I'm unable to move or leave the house for months wouldn't be good but understandably after all this nausea I'm not looking for a Slim Fast type shake either. An ideal thing would just have lots of vitamins and nutrients and either be tasty or tasteless so I can just add it to things. Right now what I'm doing is with my mom's help she makes me drinks, on my better days I'm able to drink fruit smoothies but I worry just a regular fruit smoothie every other day with almond milk isn't giving me enough vitamins. And my immune system could use all the help it could get. 

Sorry if the links are annoying, I just wanted to be as specific as possible and while these brands were recognizable to me in getting my point across, I thought they would help people who are not from the US. I'm from there so I'm looking for suggestions that can be found in US stores. 

If no ones had any luck with supplements or mixes, does anyone have any good smoothie recipes to boost immunity or even just deliver a good dose of vitamins? Currently I'm just drinking strawberries, bananas, peanut butter, and almond milk in mine. I'm not allergic to anything but we're just trying to avoid flax seed because apparently it could add to the gastrointestional distress, my mom says. Any help, tips, or recipes would be appreciated like I've never appreciated anything before! Thanks.
