Having a good look around the forum and some of you are coming up with some fantastic ideas on how you flavour your Huel. This is not the official flavour systems, but your own innovations! We want to put together some of your ideas!
Some trials today:
1: Blueberries. It looks gorgeous in its blue color. Tastes pretty good but not fantastic.
2: Cocoa. Really nice. I think I’ll try blueberries+cocoa tomorrow. I think that might be a winner. Cocoa+cinnamon is probably delicious, too.
3: Garlic+cloves+turmeric+oregano. I’m the first to admit I went a bit overboard here, but these are all foods loaded with antioxidants and phytochemicals and I only had three batches of Huel to work with, so I tried adding them all. The raw garlic really overpowered everything else, so this test was pretty inconclusive. I’ll try some of the other ingredients separately tomorrow. I have a good feeling about cloves, though. It’s gingerbread-y and I think it can go well with the vanilla. It also has an ORAC value (measuring antioxidants) of 290,283, where blueberries, the antioxidant-rich “superfood” clocks in at 4,669. So cloves are going into tomorrow’s Huel on its own.
So far I’ve only tried mixing vanilla and UU Huel at 50/50…I found it a nice change. I’ve considered using expresso but have read that it’s best to space out coffee and meals due to coffee effecting the availability of nutrients. Anyone familiar with this?
Cloves and cinnamon was pretty nice. Today I’m testing cloves and cocoa. Blueberries and cocoa also worked well, though I think I need to use more cocoa than I have been using. Turmeric and oregano was, unsurprisingly, not that tasty. Drinkable, though, and I might do it once in a while as a means to an end, but then maybe I’ll just mix it with water and have it separately instead.
Got Huel yesterday and eagerly tried it unflavoured which was awful. Woke up this morning and have mixed 100ml of moka pot coffee with 50ml semi skimmed milk with 1 scoop of Huel and it makes a Frappucinno-esque drink which is delicious. Did mix it in a Nutribullet so not to have lumps!!
Regarding cinnamon, though, it’s tasty and has beneficial properties, but it also poses some health risks and one shouldn’t overdo it. One teaspoon a day of cinnamon can be too much and potentially cause liver damage.
I love coffee so I’ve found that this is great to have on the go, it’s more finely ground than regular granuals so it’s more like a powder. Just half a teaspoon with a 3 scoop vanilla Huel and you’ve got yourself an iced vanilla latte! Delicious!
