Hey guys !
I would like to let you know that I just tried HUEL 3.0 vanilla with the addition of a couple of coffee spoons full of OVOMALTINE.
I’m pretty sure that you can find this product in Europe, but not sure about US and other continents.
But if you know this product and you can find it in your country … just give it a try.
The taste with HUEL is quite interesting and not too strong if you don’t put too much Ovomaltine in your shake
Let me know what do you think about it, and if you already tried it.
Hey guys !
It’s just called ovaltine in the UK. Same product I guess.
Yes mate, I think that Ovaltine is the same product with two less letters
This is a picture of the European version package
Ovomaltine is known by the name Ovaltine in English speaking markets, but it is not exactly the same thing. Both are powders that make a beverage but, for the English and American markets the powder contains more sugar in the form of sucrose than the original, Swiss formula. I’ve not tried any of these malty drinks in a shake yet - maybe Milo could be a good one too.
Is this the same stuff as Horlick’s malted milk?
Used it when a teenager. A little bit of history: https://www.ovomaltine.com/about-us/our-history. The original Swiss version is hard to find and today’s most seen versions have a lot of sugar: https://world.openfoodfacts.org/product/7612100066348/ovomaltine-ovomaltine

more or less - Horlicks is more like the original Swiss recipe as it has less sugar than the English language Ovaltine version.
If you want to make vegan version of horlicks, then a teaspoon or two (depends on your tastebuds) of malt extract in hot oat milk does the trick for me. You can buy malt extract in some supermarkets but probably best bet is independent wholefood stores or Holland and Barrett. It is in a jar and looks like treacle, but with a more malty taste.
