The Huel/Saturo/Soylent/Jimmy Joy Etc thread! 🥤

I’m sure we’ve got a few users here!

Backstory for me:

I became one of the earliest Huel customers in early 2016 - two jobs ago. My job at that time didn’t offer long lunch breaks and there wasn’t much choice in the area. Basically, it was impossible to find something that was quick, nutritious and inexpensive, so I regularly had to make compromises and either eat bad food or waste most of my lunch break making something decent.

Since then, I’ve pretty much tried everything on the market, and for the most part, I like Saturo the most (Ready to Drink and Bars), but it’s expensive. I haven’t actually had any Huel powder since the last time they changed the recipes (when they introduced Huel Black) so another order may be in my future soon. But, Jimmy Joy have some new products out that I’m keen to try too.

I know there’s a few Huel users in here, so would love to hear recipes and thoughts.


I’m totally new to Huel and have the Black Banana and Chocolate flavours which I’m trying out. Interested to hear different suggestions on how to use them.


How are you getting on with it? I’m thinking of getting onboard the Huel train.


Generally good - the banana is a much nicer flavour than the chocolate one. I tend to prefer a little hot water in the chocolate one so
I can pretend it’s hot chocolate! :joy:

I fell off the bandwagon and really need to get back on it. Will probably order some more Saturo on payday. Soylent doesn’t appear to be available in the UK anymore, which is a shame.


Bought some Vanilla Saturo :slight_smile:

Experimenting with adding inulin and green banana powder to it to increase satiety.

Has anyone ever tried the bottles of Huel from supermarkets? They were on offer in Sainsbury’s yesterday for £2.50 but I resisted. Just wondering if they’re representative of the powder product? It said it was worth 1 meal.

Yep I’ve had them! That’s not a bad price. Generally in this market I prefer RTD (Ready to Drink) for the convenience, so I have Saturo bottles in my fridge right now and have had Soylent in the past.

But I found the Huel RTD to be a little sludgy, and taste a little bit more processed compared to the powder. They may have improved the recipe since then though, but overall on both quality and price (the standard RRP at least) you’re better off ordering some bottles of Saturo from Amazon.

Just ordered some Huel Black.

Got a discount code if anyone wants a referral :slight_smile:

I suppose I better try it out then, thanks!

I really enjoyed the red berry Huel drink and found that it fuelled me pretty well, even during what turned out to be quite a physically demanding shift at work. I’ll let you know what I think of the savoury :slight_smile:

Ordered - here’s another code in case anyone needs/wants it, assuming Simon’s was one-time use.
