Bringing Huel to Work

Hi there! I enjoy using Huel at home. However, I am having trouble bringing 4 portions (~12 scoops) with me to work or University in a convenient way. I now bring a plastic box filled with 12 scoops of powder, but this leaves me messing up the entire office kitchen or University bathroom trying to fill a shaker.

Are more people experiencing this struggle or could anyone share a hint?

One idea that came to mind is selling Huel ‘to go tubes’, which can be filled at home and contain exactly three scoops. That way one could easily bring along a couple of tubes to work or wherever. Preparing Huel would be nothing more than elegantly adding the tube to some water.

I’m reusing the RTD bottles for that purpose. If you make a 400ml shake then it fits perfectly and the bottles are way more lean to bring with you than the shaker.

You can buy a 5 pack of these on eBay / amazon really cheap.
Or as @Bee says in the post below mine, ASDA do an identical product with a different colour lid

They are ideal for transporting ready-measured powder because the round shape allows for the Huel to be tipped straight into the shaker without mess (I’ve tried using square Tupperware pots and just make a mess everywhere!)

I normally just have a bag at work and a bag at home.

I do that as well…not tow work as I work from home, but transporting around. They are sturdy bottles. I often freeze them and take out frozen the night before and put in fridge so they are still cold several hours later in the day.

I just leave my Huel in the fridge overnight, pack it into my bag for work then drink at lunch time.

For breakfast and dinner I just use another bottle. Happy to go a little bit more hungry for the day if it saves faff.

Are the RTD bottles BPA free and designed for re-use?

Sistema make all kinds of handy-sized BPA-free containers. Might be worth looking at their website. I only use 2 scoops; the ones I use are probably too small for 3, but Google “Sistema to go” and you’ll find something that’ll hold a single serving the size you want.

I have lots of Sistema containers of all different sizes and uses. Expensive but good quality stuff.

That is a good point. On the label they state “rinse and reuse” BUT there in no mention of BPA free. Maybe worth me tagging @TimOfficialHuel for his input.

I use small plastic pots similar to these. I weigh out my portion size into one and then it’s a case of pouring it straight into the shaker.

Don’t you then have double the washing up to do?

Makes no difference to me because I never drink out of the shaker.

The shaker and I have issues. There’s always Huel ending up in my eye or on my clothes whenever I drink straight from the shaker.

So I just use the shaker to make it and pour it in a glass or some other cup. Washing up is easy if you do it straight away.

That’s one of the reasons I use a different shaker :joy:

What shaker do you use then?

I have no issues at all with the shakers (I have 3). Just lick the little hinged cap before you drink and angle it away from your eye :grin:

…or wear an eye patch and a bib :laughing:

I’ve heard from @Ian42 and @coup that there are films that feature scenes not so far removed from that following some vigorous shaking.

Pretty big, but convenient :grin:

I just bought a myprotein shaker like that and was disappointed to find it had a grill that can’t be removed (?) for cleaning. Surely it’ll be pretty disgusting pretty quick ?
