How much cocoa powder is too much?

I’ve found that the main way I like to flavor my Huel is with 100% cocoa powder (unsweetened). A LOT of cocoa powder… around 3 heaped tablespoons per shake. I currently have Huel for breakfast and lunch most days.

While I’ve had no noticeable side effects so far I was just wondering if all that cocoa could have any ill effect. I can’t seem to find anything definitive searching online.

Oh, I forgot to say, I use organic, non-alkaline cocoa powder. Not Dutch processed.

Hi - cocoa powder is a great way to flavour Huel. Cocoa is a great ingredient and there should be no reason for any ill effects.

Great, thanks James. Huel is great with cocoa powder!

I add it to a mix of vanilla and unflavored Huel, add a little pea protein as I like a higher protein shake, and then either do 50/50 water and Vita coconut milk, or all water but add a couple of tablespoons of plain Greek yoghurt. Either way makes a great, creamy chocolate Huel shake.


Sounds nice; I’ll try sometime :slight_smile:
