Inspired by others on here, I bought a Philips 1.75ltr jug blender and a couple of vaccum bottles to batch mix my Huel the night before.
The blender arrived, so I proceeded to add 900ml of water, 180g of Huel, put the lid assembly onto the blender as per the carefully-studied instructions, pressed the button, and created my very own Philips-branded Mount Etna, complete with Huel-lava, which flowed graciously across the plains of my faux-granite worktop, then proceeding to helpfully mask the 1990s-awfulness of my lower-cupboard doors. An aesthetic improvement? Probably. An absolute b*gger to clean up? Certainly.
Several further “tests” with varying quantities of water yielded the same ‘rise-up-and-over’ result. I suspect that this blender works fine when what goes in first is mainly solid food, but when you start with mainly water, it just rises up and over.
So – can you guys help with any jug blender recommendations, and if so, what quantities of water & Huel do you find it OK with? Ideally something with a two-digit price-tag.
NB: I’m not interested in those ‘blend and go’ bottle blenders like the Breville as I need to decant into vaccum bottles as I often have no access to a fridge during the daytime.
