Any recommendations for a meal repalcement or powder?

Today was the FIRST time I've ever gotten him to drink anything of the sort (I've tried a lot) and it was half regular strawberry milk and half a packet of the strawberry carnation milk. I could tell he wasn't a huge fan, but he drank almost all of it. I will continue with this, but wanted to ask if there is anything that doesn't change textures and can be hidden in milk?

The carnation (even half packet) had an obvious taste to me.

Please check with your child's doctor to determine if those meal replacement drinks are necessary, for a lot of children they aren't. If he does need them ask his health care team for recommendations on which one's to try. We can't advise on supplements in this group as it's important each child receive the products they truly need. Good luck!
