I am a tottaly newbie and after I have finshed up my first pouch of unflavoured & unsweetened powder which I mixes with water and a teaspoon of soluble coffee, I am trying the Original one, always mixed with water.
I find it to sweet and it’s quite hard to finish it.
Can anyone suggest me some mixing ideas, please?
Hi Matteo. I also find Original too sweet. I mix 25g Original with 75g UU and find that just right for my taste.
Mixing with the unflavoured & unsweetened version is the only way I know to dial down the base sweetness. You’d need to experiment to find your own preferred ratio.
There was a suggestion on here recently about mixing Huel with yoghurt - if you wanted to try eating some instead of making a shake, Huel + plain natural yoghurt is nice and not too sweet, as the yoghurt’s natural sour tones balance it well.
Cacao powder and instant coffee are the best ways to reduce sweetness, but also mixing it with Unflavoured is the best solution.
In fact UU and Original together make an excellent base with just a little sweetness and a plain flavour
Adding sounds nice cocoa… I’ll try it this Moday. Thanks a Million, @ChristinaT!
Thanks @Bee. I’ll try out this one with my next order!
Thanks @Kay. I did not consider to mix the powder with yogurt
@ChristinaT is obsessed with Cacao powder lol
Never tried it but will have to and see if it’s really that good. I am bored with Vanilla now though, Chocolate is my fav right now
I thought I’d hid that pretty well
@ChristinaT is just obsessed…
Hi Matteo, if you want to try variations on the flavour, the Huel flavour boosts are good but VERY sweet, they actually make the shake sweeter, so maybe not good for you. Sometimes I put a teabag in 400ml of water and leave in the fridge to “brew”, then use two scoops of Original Huel powder in the “tea” (don’t forget to remove the teabag!! Haha). I use Jasmine green tea. The overall effect is less sweet and it’s delicious
Lol my work Huel was like concrete today I was making them up last night and emptied the dregs of 3 bags, vanilla, mint chocolate and chocolate powder into 500 ml of water in my blender jug and blended it. It was quite thick then but after being in the fridge all night it was was like concrete mix today managed to drink it though and tasted ok
LOL sounds a good flavour combination @Ian42
LOL am I so transparent? @Coup
I put 3 tablespoons of powdered peanut butter, but couldn’t even taste it in the shake lol
