I’ve recently started on huel and I love the vanilla. I did read the warning about unflavoured but as I love earthy, natural tasting foods I thought I’d be fine. I was wrong. So very wrong. I’ve tried a few flavour additions (store cupboard, not huel flavouring) but after my disaster tonight I don’t think I can ever stomach it again. I tried adding a tomato and chilli soup powder with hot water - it tasted how it looked…
Can anyone suggest anything which might help me to use this ginormous bag of unflavoured huel before I’m forced to give it away and lose money.
In future I’ll be ordering vanilla - hot with a Tsp of hot chocolate is heaven!
Have to admit I was a firm proponent of the unflavoured version being released, but when I got it I also found it entirely unpalatable! Sorry Huel!
I started mixing it with spices, and found that fresh chillies gave it a really hearty kick which masked the non-flavour, other favourites were ground cumin, and ground cinnamon.
But yeah, future purchases will always be vanilla!!
I had a trial pack of the unflavoured, and though I actually didn’t mind the taste so much, I did find that for some reason the larger pieces in the powder sunk straight to the bottom of the water, while the whole of the vanilla powder floats. I thought it would be OK after I blended it but I found the larger pieces still at the bottom of the blender. There also seemed to be more lumps that took a while to blend up. Anyone else found this? It might have been a particular batch, so would be interesting to see what others have experienced.
@Mattyou my only issue with U/U is that it separates overnight … a quick shake by hand sorts this out and I’ve had no problem with lumps but I still prefer the consistency and texture of Vanilla huel.
@Michelle the 50/50 is good mix … I sometimes add a little bit from a flavour system pouch (half a tsp) to change it up. I don’t have a problem with the taste of U/U but I would say the vanilla flavour definitely comes through.
I’ve been trying the vanilla, and I find it disgustingly sweet… the sweet flavour also tastes very synthetic to me, so it wasn’t much of a suprise when I checked and saw it was sweetened with sucralose (a synthetic sweetener). I just got a sample of the unsweetened, and I’m going to try making it up like the protein smoothies I used to have, using milk instead of water and blending it with strawberries and a banana. The other thing I’m thinking I could do is make it into a porridge with coconut cream and a mashed up banana (as the oat base means it’s already very porridge like)
I actually find the vanilla doesn’t mix well at all, it leaves lumps floating on the top but the unflavoured mixes perfectly, though the bits sink to the bottom I find gently swirling the bottle in my hand helps bring them up a bit.
Back to the point, I only ever order unflavoured, I find the vanilla vile. I’ve found my favourite flavouring, to the point where it’s the only way I have huel is to use 50ml double concentrate lime cordial, 450ml water, 3 scoops unflavoured huel and a heaped teaspoon of cocoa powder. It’s so nice!!
