What to mix with BE Vanilla?

I just don’t like the Black Edition Vanilla.
I can get it down, but when there is any other flavour on the shelf I will never reach for the vanilla, in fact the bag has only two servings taken out and I have a delivery on the way so unlikely to change anytime soon.
As a very simple and lazy man, I want to mix something with it to make it more enjoyable, BUT… not fruit, not this or that, just another Black Edition flavour that I can use 50/50. What other flavour have you mixed with vanilla to create something nice?

as vanilla flavouring is a constituent of most sweeter foods and probably appears at some level in every other flavoured Huel except UU - you could mix it with literally any of the flavours that suited your normal taste preferences. Ive mixed it before with Salted Caramel, Cinnamon Swirl, Cookies & Cream or with UU if I wanted a less sweet drink - and it works fine.

Sorry to hear that @leejonesjnr we completely get that some product and flavour ranges may not be to your taste on their own and might need a bit of customizing.

I personally like to add a scoop of salted caramel with my vanilla :heart_eyes: and find that works really well! But if you find the vanilla taste too sweet as @Phil_C said adding U&U works a treat.

Hi Lee, try adding a large teaspoon of instant coffee to your vanilla Huel, before shaking, it’s really lovely! (Assuming you like coffee of course) :blush:

Can anyone say if there is much difference between V3 vanilla and HB vanilla? I like the V3 but haven’t tried the black version yet.

I don’t remember noticing much difference. One of my favourites in both.

Well… I had the vanilla this morning, mug of Nespresso, milk, ice, blender.
It didn’t taste as coffee ish as I expected, tasted of nothing really but that was an improvement for me and will let me use up the bag I have and just won’t order it again.

There isn’t a huge difference when it comes to taste but I would say v.3.0 has more of an oaty taste. I personally think the Black Edition is slightly more coconutty as oats aren’t an ingredient in this powder.

Black Edition also uses stevia and v.3.0 uses sucralose as a sweetener so the sweetness may taste different.

I must admit I have bought U&U Black in preference over other flavours. I have had it mixed with Oat-so-simple protein cinnamon flavour and hot water.

I usually use Mac Cheeze H&S, which I have sieved to remove the tomato pieces (I have a stoma, so I struggle with pieces). My husband adds the tomato pieces to cup-a-soups with pretty good success. Thus my use of Huel is a bit hit-or-miss. :clown_face:

I can imagine the tomato pieces in soup being lovely! :heart_eyes:

My husband really enjoys them. It also means I digest the Mac & Cheeze (having no transverse colon, I don’t get the benefit of the nutrition in anything which is normally absorbed at that point!) There is enough ‘cheeze’ powder still on the lumps to add quite a bit of flavour as well.

I originally chose Huel to help supplement essential vitamins and minerals in a balanced format since having the stoma, without adding too many calories using things like Fortisip as it is not the calories I need. I am a savoury person, not a sweet person, which is why I started with nutrition bars and Black, and was pleased when Huel introduced H&S.

I didn’t get on with the versions with whole flaxseed, but Mac&Cheeze doesn’t have whole flaxseed

oh good :hearts:

I’m definitely more of a sweet person, however the hot & savoury range is definitely my favourite of our products, especially the penne bolognese!

I’m so pleased you’ve found a product that works for you, have you tried the updated version of our mac & cheeze yet?

I haven’t yet tried the updated version. To be honest, I always dread “New Improved” version8s of Anything, as they often make the original unusable.:clown_face:
