I’m a hugely fussy eater unfortunately and so seeing something that would give me a healthy balanced diet that might be inoffensive to my “palate” got me interested.
I got the 100g trial pack (vanilla), 500ml water, and a blender. Both chilled and unchilled, I simply got the overwhelming sense that I was being asked to drink chalk. Could not drink the stuff. My question is - if my first reaction is this strong, will chucking in strawberry flavour, or doubling the water, make any real difference?
I use 3 scoops with however much water will fit in my 600ml shaker. I can still generally feel a powdery texture, which I believe some people associate with it being “chalky”. When adding a banana, strawberries, cocoa powder or other mixers to alter the flavour I still find that I can taste the powdery texture even more due to there being less water overall.
I’d suggest trying it again if you can with a bit more water to try to get rid of the powdery taste and adding some of your own natural flavours like fresh fruit to see if it makes a difference before going ahead to try Huel’s flavours.
