Honey (1 squirt)
= Delicious chocolatey shake with a nice caffeine boost Chill in fridge for best experience
The Pukka Cacao Maca Magic is basically a mix of cocoa, coffee and some delicious spices like cardamom, ginger root powder, cinnamon. Ordinarily you’d mix it with hot milk and some honey to make a luxurious latte.
I tried it with Huel today and it’s the answer to all my problems. I no longer have to hold my breath while chugging the shake. You’d have to experiment with the amount of water and coffee / cocoa you want, however I find that adding the Pukka latte mix has also improved the texture of the shake to be smooth, chocolatey, glistening.
Here’s what it looks like. I got it from Sainsbury last week as it was on sale for £1 off the RRP.
If you end up trying it, let me know your thoughts!
I dreaded adding it up, but according to MFP its 399… So not totally horrendous… It tasted interesting… Though I think next time I’d put in just one teaspoon of the Pukka stuff and see how I find that. I’m pleased to report I’m not feeling sleepy, or very awake
So I had the pukka stuff on it’s own, like as a drink. Not sure if I’d choose it over tea or coffee but if I’m ever in the mood for fancy hot chocolate I suppose it’ll do the job. Didn’t get round to trying it in Huel yet, will do it tomorrow now. What flavour Huel did you have it with?
@Bee Going to give it another whirl tomorrow so will let you know! This time I’ve prepped it with 1 measured level tsp + 1.5 tsps instant coffee + 0.5 tsp honey. I seem to have gotten distracted and added 350ml coconut milk by accident (+ 250ml water), because I don’t think I’ve ever seen my flask that full…
@RyanT Did you make it with normal milk? Might try that at some point. I used original Huel (70ish g)
Yeah I made the drink with semi skimmed milk. So I tried the pukka thing with Vanilla this morning, very nice indeed. Chocolately with a hint of potpourri haha it’s nicer than it sounds. The real test though, can it un-mint the mint-chocolate flavour Huel? The answer is a resounding no. It somehow made it mintier? I like the mint chocolate but damn there’s just no changing that one.
Will try a Cacao Maca Magic with coffee Huel later/tomorrow, I hope that’s as good as the vanilla
