Hi guys, new Huel user here. Received my pack end last week and was super excited to try it out this week.
However, its really giving me so much trouble. I am currently using the chocolate powder, with no blender (just the shaker - I make it at work for lunch so a blender is kinda hard to get access too + the washing is annoying.) I’ve read online extensively that that’s the easiest way to solve lumps but I really didn’t buy Huel to be blended because from the advertising it was supposed to be as easy to use as protein powder (which I have never had any issues with mixing).
I currently follow the instructions to a T - 400 ml of water, 3 scoops of huel, add ice, shake like crazy (they said 10 seconds, I literally shook it for 3 minutes - I timed). Still same terrible lumps.
Yesterday I tried to leave out the ice and I spent 5 minutes shaking. Lumpy.
Today I tried adding less powder first (400 ml + 2 scoops, shake, then extra scoop, shake, extra water, shake, ice).
Today’s one still had such HUGE lumps (this is not the only lump I found and its HUGE. I think the outside had somehow emulsified and it kept the inside of the lump like untouched…)
(added another pic to show how it sticks to the side of the shaker)
I drained a bit when I added too much water and the end and - its just…wow. so many chunks. And I can see powder chunks in my bottle, I shook it so hard but it still refused to go away, I then took a fork and scraped at it. Its literally powder bombs in my mouth. ugh.
I bought Huel for the supposed practicality + easy-to-use nature but it’s been tough. I have a whole pack and I do want to keep using it because it tastes fine to me. But the texture has bee so hard to work with…
Please let me know if anyone has any tips that can be used in the office? (so no blender)
