I’m guessing 2.5 scoops results in around 36g of carbs, plus maybe 28g of carbs in the banana depending on if it’s a medium to large sized one. Both Huel and bananas are low-GI I think so you’re getting 64g of carbs in one go which is way more than I was having in a shake. I don’t know though if in the grand scheme of things, this is considered a lot for a meal?
I’ll be experimenting with having more healthy fats in my diet and less carbs to meet my targets (as I go to the gym so am currently eating over my calories in order to build muscle). It’s been suggested on here about adding light olive oil for fat to a shake as it’s not strong tasting, so I might alternate that with the desiccated coconut. I’d like to add peanut butter which will give fat and protein but I don’t think it will mix very well unless using a blender.
