At the moment of writing this I am having a staring contest with my Huel shaker. Today is the first time I tried Huel. I’ve bought a starter box with two bags of new vanilla. As it turns out I am one of the unfortunate that really dislikes the taste of Huel. I started with three scoops and 400ml water. I shaked for about 5 minutes total but the lumps would not go away. Finally I decided to blend it, which made it a little better. However, even the smell of it makes me dry heave. I usually love sweet stuff, but the more water I added the better the taste got in my opinion.
I am now worried how I am going to finish my two bags of Huel. Does anyone have a good suggestion that completely alters the taste of Huel? I need something that masks the oaty/floury taste. Any suggestion is appreciated!
I’m sorry, but “a few moments of not liking the taste” is a grave understatement. I literally cannot take more than three sips at a time or I will definitely vomit. I have to take a ten minute break between every sip in order for the awful taste to get out of my mouth.
This kinda goes agains my principle for using Huel. I am using Huel because I hate cooking and I usually get something unhealthy out of laziness. That’s why Huel would have been a great easy and healthy alternative… If I could bare the taste.
I agree the taste is hard to like. I have tried other protein drinks/meal replacement and not had this problem but they are not as nutritionally compliant as Huel.
I have found I can change the flavour with a double espresso in my morning drink and in the afternoon I have followed the spiced pumpkin recipe on instagram which just needs a few spices added. I have also in my car (work on the road a lot) got a low sugar hot chocolate mix that just one spoonful makes it much better.
