Hi all first post to share a discovery - had a scan through and couldn’t see it on here.
Initially thought I was first to think of adding peppermint. But it’s been discovered already!
The other day though I thought of the idea of mint chocolate flavour Huel. So I searched out my box of peppermint tea bags (they’re most likely out of date ) made a brew with two bags to 500ml water, cooled it down and chilled in the fridge. Having woken up late everyday for my night shifts this week - the tea bags kept brewing in the fridge for three days!
But today for breakfast I used the 500ml of brew (I find that thinner more watered down Vanilla is less sickly than the thicker shake like) to 3 scoops huel and a heaped teaspoon of Bournville cocoa. And it was great!
My first batch of vanilla is nearly over. However I won’t be getting vanilla again, reiterating what others are saying - it’s quite sickly. But that’s not just with Huel. Other people using other brands of vanilla flavour shakes and meal subs are saying the same. Though I find a thinner consistency and bitter flavours balance it out to an extent. Will stick to U/U and add my own sweetners.
While I’m here, I’ll share some fails as well. Tried making some steamed savoury cakes, like similar to indian idli/dhokla. Only I didn’t add anything and it kind of came out like pudding than a cake. I didn’t taste it, went straight in the bin! Suppose flours and raising agents are needed to get a cake consistency. And I reckon it would work with rice flour baking soda and maybe some yeast. If I try it again I’ll update.
