Tip: Improved taste after 1-2 hours of soaking

I found the taste of my Huel was greatly improved by leaving it to sit for a couple of hours after adding water and mixing. It seemed to remove some of the bitter/unpleasant after-taste and made it much more drinkable.

Has anyone else found this? If so, it might be a good idea to add it to the documentation.

Yes, I think it tastes better after sitting in the fridge for a few hours. Being chilled helps too.

Definitely. I make mine at night then take it to work with me in the morning, so it’s in the fridge for about 9hrs.

I think (but I might be wrong) that it seems to slightly thicken the longer you leave it sitting.

At first I hated the taste, but after two weeks I got used to it and now I really don’t care when I drink it.

I love ice in my Huel, add three cubes and the grid and shaker as per norm. Cold / chilled Huel tastes better to me.

Yes. If I make mine in the morning and have it sitting in my bag until lunchtime it does taste better. Also more of the little lumps seem to dissolve.
