I’ve got a set of kitchen measuring scoops in cup sizes. Turns out the scoop supplied with Huel is 1/3 of a standard cup. So given that I use three Huel scoops, I can use the cup measure instead. 1 cup rather than 3 scoops. And as a bonus, the cup measure has slanting sides, so the powder falls straight out.
This is going to save me seconds ever morning! And as everyone knows, morning seconds are the most valuable.
I’ve just noticed the very small writing on the Huel Scoop, which says 70ml, whilst the third of a cup scoop says 85ml. So that’s an extra 21%. I’ve made a terrible mistake. No wonder I haven’t been losing weight these last few days.
Don’t trust the allure of one scoop to rule them all! It’s evil. Stick to the true path of the official huel scoop.
I’m lazy too, but I find scales work a treat and are easier than faffing around with scoops. I make 2 meals at a time. I fill the water into my blender jug and then put this straight onto my scales, which I then zero. Then I pretty much shovel Huel in with a large scoop and find that I can pretty much guess roughly how much it’ll need. Then I’ll fine tune at the end by either adding a bit more or taking some out of the blender before it sinks down into the water. I’m not too concerned if it’s a little over or under. I then blend for 5 or 10 seconds and pour into shaker jugs and put into the fridge. The whole process takes 2 and a half minutes from start to end (including rinsing the blender, tidying everything away in the cupboard and putting the finished meals in the fridge).
