Hot Chocolate / Hot Mocha - method suggestions please!

I’m struggling to drink a refridgerated Huel now the weather is cold.

Has anyone successfully found a way to make a Huel hot chocolate or Huel mocha?

I would usually make a normal (non-huel) hot chocolate in a pan with cold coconut milk and raw cacao and heat it up, but I don’t want to ‘cook’ my huel and lose the nutrients so I’m thinking of making it with off-the-boil water.
Obviously I can’t just add the hot water to the shaker, add the huel and flavour boost, shake and go… I can see that ending in disaster.

I do now have a blender but tend to only use it when I want to make a savoury huel recipe with veggies and spices, or when I want to make my huel with ice. And I like to make it in large quantities to make it worth the effort. Making a single hot chocolate in the blender feels like a lot of work.

Does anyone have any tried and tested methods they would recommend?

You can do the chocolate the usual way (but quite thin) and then let it cool a bit before adding Huel. That’s what I tend to do when using Huel warm.

There are people who cook with Huel too.

Also, using a mug instead of the shaker helps (avoiding the plastic taste and the Huel volcano)

How would you mix it then? If not in the shaker? I’ve tried whisking it into water in a pan or mug and it doesnt mix well at all!

I was thinking the other day it would be good to have a proper porridge version of Huel so you either microwave it for a couple of minutes or cook it in a pan.

Be aware that it will have to be pretty liquid to mix better. Use the handblender if you have one.

ah hand blender is a good idea! I dont know why I didnt think of that - I was just thinking of my new jug blender which is okay for large quantities but a hassle for one drink!

This is what I have been craving a bit @Ian42 !
I could easily make it into porridge by simply simmering it in a pan like I used to do with my porridge oats and pea protein in the morning.
But wouldnt this diminish the nutrients?
If the vitamins are destroyed by the cooking process then its a waste of huel really and I might as well just make porridge with oats, flaxseed, pea protein and almonds like I used to

@Tim_Huel or @JamesCollier are you able to comment on how much of the vitamin content is destroyed by cooking with Huel?
Sorry if there is already an article on this - I couldnt find one.
Perhaps just point me at it if there is!

I think it would if you heat it up, I am sure it was mentioned somewhere on here. That’s why a new proper Huel porridge would be great if it could be done somehow.

There may be some loss of the labile micronutrients like vitamin C, potassium, folate and vitamin A, but heating covered would minimise this


I know it’s a few weeks later but… I put cold water in the shaker, then Huel, give it a good shake then add hot coffee, top up with hot water, and shake again. I tried this when I had flu and the cold Huel sucked out my body heat like a Dementor. Now I do it all the time for my breakfast Huel.


I’ve also done the adding a hot cup of coffee to some pre made Huel and it’s quute nice on a cold winter morning.
