HI, been with Huel for almost two months now and have only recently had this experience. So i thought that i’d share and help others figure out what works for them.
Seen several posts talking about this general idea but could not figure out why this should be. UNTIL IT HAPPENED!! (duh, duh, duuuuuh)
Ever since i had my first shake i was making them with soy or 1% milk. thought i was branching out by trying them with cashew or coconut milk. how could anyone NOT like how these shakes were tasting?!
Because it’s the WATER, stupid. i’ve made three shakes now using water as my liquid and these shakes tasted pretty bad. i have chocolate, berry and vanilla Huel powders and some chai flavor boost sitting around, but at the rate i’ve been drinking two two-scoop shakes i’ve been putting some hurt on the jugs of milk. thought i’d give water a go…
no. i think this might be why i’ve read several posts by people talking about how horrible, or disgusting, or not cool these shakes were tasting. water is good to drink by itself. when you’re fixing a Huel shake for a meal or post exercise, whatever, try it with some soy, cashew, coconut milk. ANYTHING. i guarantee that no-water shakes taste 1000X better.
that is all. live long and prosper.
