I’m new to a Huel and on Day 3. I am really struggling with the texture. It’s slightly lumpy and definitely leaves a powdery reminence in my mouth. I usually love shakes of all varieties but I am struggling with this one.
I work 12-14 hour days in an Ambulance so there is no pre making it and having it ice cold out of the fridge. I buy a bottle of water (that way it’s as cold as possible), make my shake up and vigorously shake before each sip but it’s still slightly lumpy and definitely powdery. Also the v2.3 Vanilla isn’t very sweet (as I’ve read on some posts)
Any help would be greatly appreciated as I want to really love it.
I used to blend with a hand blender, that gets rid of all the lumps, but now I just shake well and chill in the fridge. When I’m going to be out during the day I put the pre-made Huel into an insulated bottle and leave it in the fridge overnight with the lid off, so it gets nice and cold, then pop the lid on in the morning and voila, nice cold Huel on the go!
Leaving over night definitely helps with the consistency
Try mixing with less water to begin with - more empty space in the blender bottle can really help smash the powder into the water, then when you’ve got a nice thick sludge add more water and shake again.
Thank you everyone, I think I may have mastered it (almost), definitely less powdery by making a small amount first then adding water until the right consistency.
Also just ordered myself a new blender for smoother Huel at home.
I also like the idea of putting it in an insulated bottle, now I have a task of finding one big enough
I always blend mine - definitely makes a big difference. Just a thought, maybe you could buy a rechargeable cordless hand blender that you could take to work with you?
And absolutely put the water in first…
