Has anybody tried any powdered greens in the mix? I.e. spirulina, chlorella etc?
I tried it with matcha the other day; the bitterness of the tea really balanced out the sweetness.
Loving the ideas of using tea @JJMC and @Jessica_Invernizzi. How much tea are we talking about? Some time ago a customer said they used Chai tea but had to oversteep more than one tea bag. Are you find you are having to use a lot of tea? We should write some specifications down!
I add a small portion of Tesco’s Frozen Mixed Fruits, it tastes divine. Four Huel’s a day as part of a healthy weight gain alongside weight training. Feeling great!
I’m fortunate that my wife works in a tea brewery so I have loose leaf that I can infuse in small but concentrated quantities.
I use a tea ball as a measure anywhere between 3/4 full to full and infuse that with half a cup of fresh boiled water for 3-5 minutes. Pour it in, stir and away you go.
I have teas of all varieties but not going to try a smoky tea with Vanilla Huel - may get a sample of unflavoured and try it with that.
I use half a teaspoon of matcha powder mixed in a little hot water, and then I’ll mix that with my serving of Huel in the blender
Great topic, thanks.
My experiments so far (all in 500ml + 3 scoops)
- Frozen blueberries 3 desert spoons tastes great
- Frozen cranberries same recipe as above - not as good as the blueberries which were more intense
- Cinnamon - 3 teaspoons - great taste , can be a bit grainy.
- Ginger - 3 teaspoons of powder - great taste think I should perhaps try cutting a piece of root ginger or getting a jar of ginger but I find the powder easier !
- Curry Powder - 3 teaspoons - certainly gives Huel a kick, I would do this again but not daily !
I think on my easy bucket list are marmite, coriander, mint, rosemary, cumin , all as dried herbs. On my fresh bucket list would be strawberries, raspberries, banana, but am also interested in kale and spinach…
Looking forward to more inspiration from your posts !
Blueberries give a great subtle flavouring. My fave is frozen bananas and strawberries tho!
I started trialing Huel last week and intend to move to using it for two meals a day from Monday onwards. At the moment, I have some vanilla Huel and have flavored it with instant coffee (good), fresh raspberries (OK) and cocoa (OK).
Looking forwards, I think that the lack of a savoury taste might get to me a little, so was wondering if anybody had tried adding Marmite to unflavoured Huel?
I use the Vanilla version and these are some of the recipes I’ve been using. I usually also always add 2 or 3 large ice cubes before blending;
1 Banana, 3 scoops Huel, 700ml water
1 Banana, 3 scoops Huel, 1 heaping tspn unsweetened cocoa powder, 700ml water
5 Strawberries, 3 scoops Huel, 600ml water
5 Strawberries, 3 scoops Huel, 1 heaping tspn unsweetened cocoa powder, 600ml water
3 scoops Huel, 1/2 tspn almond extract, 600ml water
3 scoops Huel, 1/2 tspn almond extract, 1 heaping tspn unsweetened cocoa powder, 600ml water
1/2 Banana, 3 Strawberries, 3 scoops Huel, 1/2 tspn almond extract, 1 heaping tspn unsweetened cocoa powder, 700ml water
2 tbs Nespresso, 2 tsp Truvia (natural sweetener), 3 scoops Huel, 600ml water
Will add more as I try more. Thanks for all of the other great ideas here.
Great stuff all of you, it seems blueberries are a real winner! Can someone just bite the bullet and try Marmite with UU Huel?! I feel it needs a blender and we don’t have one in the office! @PhilipEatonRichards, curry powder sounds awesome, have you tried stock pots? Thank you @Clinty for the recipes there. Brilliant.
Send me a trial pack and I’ll try it for you
@TimOfficeHuel “Stockpots” - that is an idea - thanks I am tempted by the Marmite challenge…
Spirulina is great!
i tried the following as an evening meal:
Frozen Spinach Cubes
Fill blender up to 500ml water
2 scoops Vanilla
3 teaspoons Madras curry powder
Warmed up in microwave
I count this as a successful trial, it’s a curried green soup. Could be improved I think by using boiling water straight into blender, and unflavoured maybe, I am yet to try that though so next order.
@PhilipEatonRichards I’ve done some similar except that I prefer not to heat Huel too much. I find the texture gets too thick and cloying in the mouth.
Instead, I pour boiling water directly on to the frozen spinach and spices. I let this sit long enough to thaw the spinach, simultaneously cooling the water. I think pour in the Huel and blend.
@TimOfficeHuel I tried UU with Marmite a couple of times. I wouldn’t say that I loved it, but it is definitely something I could eat every once in a while. The general umami-ness of Marmite is nice. Unfortunately the saltiness is a little overpowering.
I tried adding the Cocoa Delight Nakd bar into my Huel with 7g of Huel and 500mls of water and it was delicious … They make plenty of other flavours for the bars too, so lots of options
That’s something I’d try…interesting…I love the Nakd bars.
Anyone used the my protein flavourings?
Only experiments so far have been:
- A pinch of cinnamon powder - very good
- A chunk of root ginger - also tasty
