I am a newcomer to Huel and received my vanilla powder two days ago. I have to say when I first mixed the powder with water, I really didn’t like the taste. Since then I have started to use 100% skimmed milk and now really like the taste.
The reason I wanted to try and use Huel, is in the past I never used to really eat all day until the night time, and then just ordered take away and wanted to try and get some healthy nutrition and vitamins in my diet.
My plan is to drink 2 shakes a day and then a healthish meal on the evening and then eventually going 100% Huel down the line.
My shake contains 400ml skimmed milk and 2 scoops of vanilla huel powder.
My question is, with the use of milk, and not water, will this help me lose body fat in the long term?
I use 50/50 water and unsweetened oat or almond milk…this really works for me and I love the taste of this and 50/50 Huel unflavoured and Huel vanilla prepared the night before and refrigerated. Dairy milk isn’t great…unless you are a calf.
I usually have 2 scoops (50:50 vanilla/UU) in 400ml of water blended with a hand blender inside the Huel shaker for a smoother consistency. I’ve found this really works for me (though it took a bit to get used to it). However recently I’ve tried swapping 100lm of the water for 100ml Alpro coconut (milk), which is only 20 cals and it gives it a lovely coconut taste, plus makes it more creamy. Making it with completely Alpro coconut (400ml) makes it super creamy, probably a bit much for me, but nice for ‘treat’ taste
