I take my Huel out of the house with me and do a bit of work in coffee shops from time to time so I’m looking for a good bottle I can put the Huel in to drink.
The protein shaker looks a bit strange when I whip it out in public so I’m after something that is a bit more discrete and looks like a water bottle. Plus it probably doesn’t go down well in a cafe when I should be ordering food!
I guess it would need a wide mouth and not be see through and be about 800 ml.
I’ve been looking in the shops but not seen anything suitable. Any tips or plans to make a Huel bottle?
Just a word of caution: the downside to using a water bottle is they’re a nightmare to clean properly. Make sure you wash it out thoroughly as soon as you’re finished, or the film of Huel on the sides will gradually harden and stink up. I’d also advise drinking it fairly quickly, rather than taking sips over a few hours, for the same reason.
The advantage with the protein shake bottles is the top doesn’t taper at all, so you can easily get your hand in to give it a good scrub, but even then if you forget to clean it out the Huel can dry to the point where even vigorous manual scrubbing makes little to no difference. That said I’ve only used plastic bottles, so maybe metal ones don’t suffer from this so much?
I have a 800ml klean kanteen, but without a wide mouth. May I recommend: https://sigg.com/cleaning-brush-bottle
You can find them in lots of online stores that sell sports bottles and camping gear, but this particular brush is what I have and it really helps so much I find myself using it even when it’s not necessary. Got mine from Amazon.
We are currently in the process of producing an epic bottle that not only looks great but is also easy to clean and can hold a full litre! It will still take some time to make, but it is in the pipeline!
Am I the only one that would prefer smaller bottles?
I drive lorries and like to space huel out throughout the day. I like the container to fit in the cup holder and ideally I like it ice cold. I make huel up at night and take with me for the day. So far not found anything I’d recommend all large sport type bottles are to big to handle easily or store easily. Product gets warm unless you’ve a stomach like a space hopper.
Costa coffee outlet straws are pretty good if you…ahem…appropriate some while passing.
Actually costa coffee outlets have been pretty kind to me by filling my shaker with tap water when I’ve been out ‘on the road’
