So, ten days into Huel and I’m certain enough that I like it, that I’m prepared to spend money on a blender so I can add ice, fruit and experiment with other recipes.
Just done a search here on the forum for blender recommendations but all the threads are 2/3 years old.
As technology and prices move on pretty quick I thought I’d start a new thread.
There’s mention of Vitamix and Blendtec blenders here; there’s not really needed for mixing Huel but for blending aficionados there are the ticket, dealing with ice, nuts and so on. But at £400+ it’s quite a ticket. I reviewed the top end of the market quite closely and found the Enpee at just under £200 but equivalent to Vitamix/Blendtec in terms of power and quality. But for Huel I use a £10 blender bought on special offer from the local supermarket! It just about copes with a banana + Huel so that’s ok. If it packs up I will go for a nutri bullet but at home will use the Enpee - I’m really happy with that.
Thanks everyone for your replies
I’ve been looking at all those suggested.
The vitamix seems well out of my price range although I probably would use it for all sorts of other things too.
The nutribullet seems good and I like that it’s small as so is my kitchen!
I think a £10 blender probably wouldn’t suit my needs as I want to be able to whizz up ice and raw veg in it too.
Altho I may actually get a cheap one for now while trying to decide what ‘decent’ one to get!
Have to admit I’m fairly tempted by a Magimix which I found whilst looking for a bargain on a nutribullet, as £150-200 is more my price range and will do everything I need and it has great reviews.
I’m no good at decisions!
I’m sure whatever I get will do the job just fine!
Well after much debate, I did actually go for the Magimix Power Blender.
So totally ignored everybody’s suggestions and did my own thing which about sums me up!
Thanks everyone for all your suggestions though - it was a great help as pointed me in the right direction of what to look for and what kind of thing other people use for their Huel.
