Liquid savoury Huel

Please could you consider making a savoury liquid Huel for those of us who don’t want bits/don’t want to do the whole hot water, stir, leave thing?

Just like the standard Huel (shake and go or RTD) but savoury. Granted options are fairly limited but a tomato gazpacho could be a good place to start? Great to have soups for winter too.

I think that you can achieve it by - as with porridge - leave overnight, and then blend the H&S :slight_smile:

That sounds quite gruelly though! I appreciate its a solution, but would be great if Huel could add a purpose designed smooth and silky savoury drink to their “for consideration” list!

I think savoury shakes would be more filling than sweet ones, psychologically. It’d be great to be able to alternate sweet with savoury and avoid the feeling of living on desserts all the time.

Would love a cold potato and onion soup shake. Carrot and ginger. Tomato and chilli. Spinach and garlic. Thai Green Curry… mmmm.

Agreed. Sometimes i want to have 3 huels a day but cant face the thought of a third “milkshake”. Love your ideas. Also in a trashier vein, some of the pot noodle “juices” are quite moreish.

Why not getting U&U and add ingredients yourself (as many do with fruits) to make it savoury? :slight_smile:
Note that I’m not against them adding what you’re asking, just suggesting solutions for you for the time being when this is not a thing :slight_smile:

It’s a nice idea, adding this and that to customize it, and I can imagine there’s fun to be had, but I’d be reluctant to start tinkering. The big sell is that it’s ready-to-go right out of the bag and I’d worry about how any flavour additions would skew the balance of nutrients. Plus I’m lazy. :wink:

Agreed again! And with so many sweet options available, surely one or two savouries are doable.

I think messing around with U/U when you’re dealing with savoury is much harder than with sweet.

I like the idea, but I think any of it would need to be pitched as, and consumed as, a soup. I think drinking a savoury liquid will not sit well with most people! But a Huel soup is a cool idea!

For now here are some recipes you could try! Granted the amounts of Huel in them aren’t the level you want but still, some good ideas!

Understandable that cold savoury liquids might be an acquired taste, but it’d be cool (or hot!) if Huel soup was ever a thing. Assuming heat doesn’t degrade the nutrients, but I guess this issue must’ve been dealt with for H&S already.

Incidentally, I took a look at the Thai Green Curry recipe to see when the Huel gets added, ie to see how much heat it’d be subjected to during cooking:

Instructions

** Finely chop the onion and fry in a large saucepan.*
** Once soft, add the crushed garlic and fry for a further minute or 2 until golden.*
** Add the peas, spinach, thai green curry paste, coconut milk and water and bring to a gentle simmer for about 5 minutes until cooked.*
** Using a hand blender, blend until smooth and season with salt and pepper to taste.*

something missing there! :thinking:

I do know that a Huel competitor makes a soup. I won’t say who as it’s bad form, but there is at least one out there. I’ve not tried it and I don’t know how well it sells. The flavour sounds nice tho.

I think a savoury shake of either a cucumber flavour or a tomato flavour may taste quite refreshing.

haha oh dear I knew that linking to a bunch of ancient recipes from the site would lead to issues!

Our Hot & Savoury uses rice. What do you mean?

If the company begins with F, I’ve tried it and sadly it’s rough IMO. I think for cold savoury the texture needs to be very smooth. Sweet stuff can be a little gritty or starchy, but when its savoury and cold it starts to feel weird. So maybe cold savoury would be good as RTD.

Soups however are a great idea, you could sell it in big bags or sachets, cupasoup style. You could get really creative with flavours if they were designed as soups, and they’d also be excellent for people who are trying to gain weight as you could just make a bowl of Huel soup to slurp at alongside a regular meal so you’re basically getting huge amounts of calories without having to do a meal and then afterwards a shake.

It isn’t that one

Cucumber, tomato, celery, carrot…a V8 style drink but with all the nutrition.
