Thicker Huel


Does anyone have any suggestions for making huel thicker w/o changing the calories too much?

Im thinking like a bulking agent? Because I don’t want to use less water or add more huel/ or add more fruit like bananas. I guess its because I miss the old huel which was much thicker and more filling (imo)

Thanks guys! :slight_smile:

chia seeds…ground in a coffee grinder will do the trick…alters the texture tho.

Xanthan gum is a good thickener, but don’t use more than about 0.5g per meal or it will become too solid.


If this works then thanks a bunch for the suggestion… Will try tomorrow for lunch.

If you have time to do so, stick it in the fridge for several hours…

I did this once the ‘night before’ to save a wee bit of time on my breakfast shake, and the overnight chilling made it so thick, I had to add more water to it! This was 100g Huel to 500ml water.

Thank you!
I’m gonna try out the chia seed and Xanthan gum suggestion

Just add less water…


Just wanted to jump on and say thanks for the suggestion - I now have 125g Huel to around 750ml of water (up to the lid), and mix it with 1.5-2g of Xanthan Gum. Makes for a larger and more satisfying thick Huel. Also found other uses for it - such as thickening casein to make a real thick ‘yoghurt’. Thanks again.

You could try using almond milk instead of water. When using almond milk I have to use a blender, as it’s too hard to mix up fully otherwise.

The xanthan gum trick would be the simplest solution though. AFAIK that’s pretty much the food industry standard for thickening stuff up.
