I’ve bought 2 bags of Huel Black (Banana and strawberry+cream) last week, but after making my first Huel shake I couldn’t help but gag at the taste of it. I finished it but couldn’t enjoy it at all.
I used water as instructed.
My 2nd shake I used milk and it wasn’t much better!
Side note, I’ve tried the ready made shakes and they taste amazing!
Any ideas how I can make the Huel Powder taste any better?
Hey Julian! Welcome to the forum and to the Huel community! Sorry to hear you aren’t loving Huel Black and it’s making you gag. It sounds like it’s a texture thing as opposed to a taste thing. I would try what @IainCraig has helpfully suggested (chilling allows the powder more time to kinda dissolve), and definitely also blending it. If you’re used to the silky smoothness of the RTDs then blending is going to help lots.
Try each on their own, as I appreciate blending it and leaving it overnight is less convenient. Hope this helps and keep us posted!
You do get used to the taste. I remember when I first bought whey protein powder, I chose the unflavoured because it lower in sugar, higher in protein and cheaper, and I just expected it to taste milky. It didn’t, it was horrible and before I could get a flavoured bag delivered to mask the taste I used either vanilla essence or a shot coffee.
