I just order huel for the first the first time. I got the vanilla one. Just a little a bit about myself I’m a freshman in college I commute. I’m planning on making huel in the morning and keeping it in a lunchbox, that you put it in a freezer and it keeps all your food cold, and drinking it for lunch. I’m wondering what the ratio is. 1 scoop for how many oz/ml of water or milk. And if you add other ingredients like cinnamon how much do you put… I’m also planning on blending it but I can shake too that’s fine.
Hey Robert! Happy to have you on board! Props for making a healthy lunch choice during your school day over junk food or other more expensive options on campus. I wish I had Huel during my school days!
As far as how you make your Huel, I’ll tell you that everyone makes their Huel a little differently so the best thing you can do is start with the standard 500 calorie serving and then adjust more or less powder/liquid until you reach your desired consistency and serving size. You can also play around with the type of liquid you use - cold brew, almond milk, tea, etc. As far as easy add-ins, our flavor boosts, instant coffee, a splash of coffee creamer, a couple tsp of cinnamon, 1 tbsp of powdered peanut butter, and many more are great shake-and-go options. Again, tailor to your liking by adding more or less depending on your serving size and preference. Hope this helps! Check out our how-to guide for more tips on getting started.
I originally stared doing my Huel more concentrated but now I’ve switched over to more diluted. Both are good, but I find I like getting more water and I like the texture a little more if it’s a little more diluted. It’s all personal preference.
For straight up Huel: 2 scoops in 400 ml, or 3 scoops in 500 ml might be a good starting point.
But most of my Huels have mixed stuff in it. And I blend. Much easier to blend. Better texture.
A good starter formula is: 500 ml water or water/milk, 3 scoops Huel, half cup frozen berries of choice.
A more advanced is: 500 to 600 ml water/milk, 2 scoops Huel, 2 tablespoons applesauce (optional) or half banana (optional), 2 tablespoons natural peanut butter, cinnamon lightly sprinkled
(Cinnamon can be bitter if too much is used, so go light at first till you get the formula right for you.)
Substituting a few ice cubes for some of the water before you blend can make it colder from the start, easier for your lunch bag to keep chilled. I personally use an insulated thermos. I found it’s important to have the product already cold when placed in this thermos, otherwise it will take too long for the fridge or cold packs to get it cold, cause the thermos is insulated. Another option is to have it already cold with ice cubes, placed in an insulated thermos, and then you don’t need cold packs.
If I do 2 scoops of fuel and 4ml of water how much chooser powder can I add?
Hey @Robert_Daniel, here is my go to shake most days and the steps I use:
- Fill Huel shaker with approx. 300ml water and 100ml Ripple unsweetened vanilla pea protein milk (recent addition that I’m enjoying)
- Stir in individual pack of instant coffee (I use Cafe Bustelo)
- Add 3 scoops vanilla Huel
- 1 heaping teaspoon Hershey’s 100% cocoa powder
- 3 ice cubes
- Put shaker lid on and shake for 15-20 seconds
- Add additional water thru drinking spout a little above the 700ml mark and shake again
I make this in the morning and take to work in an insulated bag with an ice pack sheet wrapped around it. Then in the fridge at work when I get there.
One or two heaping teaspoons of Huel chocolate powder. It has no sweetener in the chocolate powder, so use liberally.
What if I have my own. Same thing?
Thanks try that out (:
Yes. Their Huel chocolate powder is basically Hershey’s Unsweetened cocoa powder.
