First and foremost, if this is for someone who needs liquid nutrition, you must check with a nutritionist before trying something different. Saving a life trumps kashrut.

Additionally, many rabbis who normally require chalav yisrael will allow non-chalav-yisrael for someone seriously sick (even if not life-threateningly so). Or as the TV ads say, "ask your rabbi if Carnation is right for you."

But to answer your question: There's probably something in Israel, but I don't know how you'd find it.

Koshervitamins.com has powders for soy-protein drinks and whey-protein drinks, if you consult with a nutritionist, one of those might work.
