I recently bought Huel Black Vanilla. My research results said vanilla was the best option compared to chocolate but maybe not I’m regretting not getting one of each.
Because I don’t like the taste. I’ve looked at a range of views from people and found lots of people don’t mind the taste or they really quite like it. Or like me they can’t stomach it. I love vanilla dairy milkshake and I’ve tried vanilla whey protein shakes before and they taste better than this but I can’t really have whey. I’m not vegan, I just avoid dairy.
What is the strong overriding flavour of the vanilla Huel Black? Is it the pea protein or the tapioca starch? I honestly can’t get vanilla from the taste, to me it’s just quite savoury. Is it true that stevia to some people can taste quite bitter? I’ve just stevia before and it’s tasted fine.
As I decided as I couldn’t stomach it as a drink and because I bought two bags of vanilla, I thought that I would try cooking with it. So I attempted to make the Huel pancakes. I really didn’t like the flavour and it tasted very bitter. I fiddled with the recipe and added not stevia sweetners but it didn’t help.
I’m going to try making a Huel drink with coffee , either espresso or instant and see if that helps.
Anyone tried making the Huel black vanilla savoury. As it’s not that sweet, I wonder if it’s possible to make it savoury with stocks or spices. Onion powder might be a good one or cayenne pepper and paprika.
Considering Huel can be a meal replacement it’s a shame that like most meal replacement and protein shakes they always go with the sweet flavours. I’m on a low carb diet. The fast 800. So I’m not trying the usual huel.
I still think it’s possible to crack the flavour of Huel black vanilla for me so that it’s not a waste of money.
