Default Multiple powders in 1 shake?

Hello! Within the past year I've gotten arthritis and had stomach issues.
Because of my weight I had to get shots to bear the pain so I can exercise to lose weight and help my arthritis pain but lately I cannot handle much food other than small snacks. I am getting tests done but this has been going on for 4+ months.

My doctor recommended protein shakes and these are the powders I have bought;
SunWarrior raw vegan flavourless powder
optiMSM (for joints)
Some slim-fast that I've had for 3 months

I've been trying to mix all 3 and find a recipe that works and even though slim-fast is the only thing that has flavour I cannot find anything tasty!

I was wondering if anybody had tips or recipes?
I'm sick of drinking flavourless shakes and I don't want my money on slim-fast to go to waste.
Thanks a lot.

Edit: I only want to use slim-fast as a flavour if possible

I use Sunwarrior. I blend it with almond milk and frozen berries (raspberries and blueberries).

It's also very good with half a banana and some blueberries. I know some people that have done it with a little bit of raw coca and some peppermint extract. I find the almond milk has a natural sweetness that helps give it some flavour (don't buy the unsweetened. Not worth it). I would just play around with different combinations of fruit and see what you like. It's trial and error. A little almond butter is great in it too. Just watch the calories. It can get a little crazy if you're not wary.

Greek yogurt and a drizzle of honey makes it creamy too.

Thanks so much gymrat05! I never thought of almond milk! Thanks I'll definitely try that.

I've never tried almond butter, how much would you recommend? A tablespoon?

Yeah, max 1 tbsp. It just might give it some flavour.
