What are the best ways to add carbs to Huel, without a blender (shaker bottle only)?

Normally I would just blend in a banana (or other fruit) to increase the carbs, but I have been quite a bit busier lately and mostly just using the shaker bottle to quickly make my Huel. What kind of carb source can I add that will dissolve/blend easily with just the shaker bottle? Ideally something that’s not just pure sugar (or honey, maple syrup, etc).


You could just eat a banana while you drink your huel.

Thanks for the suggestion, but I’m looking for something that I can actually mix in to my Huel.

I’m afraid the only carbs that are going to easily dissolve/mix with huel in a shaker bottle via shaking are going to be the things you’ve already stated you don’t want to use. Using milk instead of water is the only thing I can think of, but that’s just liquid sugar with some protein and fat. Same with any other carb that isn’t a chewable food.

You can buy powdered grains, fruit and veggies online. I mix in kale, spinach, beets, blueberry, strawberry powders I also use cocoa and plant based milks.
You can also use powdered / ground quinoa, oatmeal, rice, stuff like that to boost carbs.

Sweet, I had no idea. @leyley123 Thanks for asking this and @Monkeyshark Thanks for the info!

@Monkeyshark Thanks for the info and ideas!

Which Huel powder are you using? Another suggestion would be you could either blend up some additional oats and have this in a separate container to add in (though it may have some grittiness depending on how fine you can get the oats) or possibly try getting some additional oat flour to add? I never tried this myself so I can’t say how well it would work, how thick it would get, or how it would taste but just a suggestion as we use oats in Huel v3.0 powder!

@Charlotte_Huel I am using the original powder (vanilla flavor). And that’s a good suggestion about the oats, I will give that a try! Thank you!

You bet, you can use coffee grinder, food processor or blender to blend stuff down. Oats grind easy, rice and quinoa not as easy.

Let me know how it goes! :slight_smile:

Use Oatmeal powder. It can even be made yourself if you don’t want to buy premade stuff.

Try plain yogurt and powdered pb in your next shake.

you could check the kencko products.
