What's a healthy alternative for Ensure?

My stepdad is going through chemo and is not able to eat food , only been living off ensure drinks. He is real week and not strong enough to take anymore chemo due to not enough nutrition, what would be a good recipe or shake for me to make for him?

I actually tried to recreate the same nutrient profile as ensure to give people a healthier alternative to ensure. Here are some recipes you can try out. I would also suggest giving your father Blasts that are made with dark leafy greens, blueberries, turmeric, avocado, coconut oil, raw nuts as those are anti-inflammatory foods and also have a good amount of calories.
