Game-changing Huel Hacks, Tips & Tricks

Get the most from your Huel with these delicious tips and tricks!

Do you like to live life dangerously? Do you put the ‘mental’ in ‘experimental’? Do you want to get more creative with your Huel combos? Look no further.

We reckon Huel tastes great as it is, but there’s no harm in mixing things up from time to time – we’ve put together a few helpful hacks designed to take your Huel game to another level.

Huel Hack #1 - Get Fresh

The most basic Huel hack is to simply add fresh fruit and other natural ingredients. Instant deliciousness can come in many forms, and some of our favourite combos include:

  • Berry v3.0 Powder mixed with fresh berries (whatever floats your boat). Very berry!
  • Vanilla v3.0 Powder with oat milk, banana, and almond butter
  • Vanilla Black Edition with blueberries, honey, and cinnamon
  • Chocolate Fudge Brownie Complete Protein, banana, and peanut butter

For best results, prepare all of these using a blender.

Huel Hack #2 - Curry Crossovers

Love Huel Hot & Savoury Korma but want something with a little more heat? Love Madras but fancy something a little less spicy? Meet in the middle and combine the two!

Simply combine one scoop of each and add a dollop of raita on top with some fresh coriander for the perfect finishing touch.


Huel Hack #3 - Natural Toppings

Take your Huel Hot & Savoury to another level with the help of some natural toppings.

Some inspiration:

  • Tomato & Herb with a handful of crumbled feta cheese
  • Mexican Chilli with avocado and fresh coriander
  • Thai Green Curry with a drizzle of sweet chilli sauce (or sriracha)
  • Tomato & Herb with vegan fraiche, chopped avocado, hot sauce

Huel Hack #4 - Huel Coffee

Mornings suck. Huel blended with coffee doesn’t. Start your day right by adding coffee to your shake - you can do this in a couple of different ways.

For a Huel Dalgona Coffee (pictured above), you’ll need Huel V3.0 Vanilla Powder, instant coffee, sugar, water, and/or your milk of choice. Visit the Huel Instagram for the full method.

Huel Hack #5 - Cool Down with Huel

Too hot for Huel? No such thing… Blend together two scoops of Huel Black Edition Coffee Caramel with ice and a shot of espresso for a super-cool Huel Frappé!

If you’re not into coffee, try this peanut butter milkshake instead! All you need is 1.5 scoops of Vanilla Black Edition Huel, 1-2 tbsp of smooth peanut butter, some milk, and a handful of ice. Get the method here.

Huel Hack #6 - Huel Pancakes

Blueberry pancakes made with Huel. What more can we say?


  • Makes about seven pancakes
  • 3 scoops Vanilla Huel Powder
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 300ml dairy free milk
  • (optional) 1/2 tsp mixed spice
  • (optional) 60g blueberries
  • (optional) juice and zest of 1/2 lemon


  • Mix the dry ingredients together.
  • Pour in about half the milk and mix well.
  • Add remaining milk slowly, mixing until smooth.
  • Spoon into a lightly oiled pan and cook until the top edges of the pancake are beginning to look drier than the middle, then flip over and cook on the other side.

Perfect for pancake day (and every other day).

Huel Hack #7 - Keep it Chilled

The golden rule when it comes to preparing Huel is to keep it chilled – this doesn’t, however, mean you need to pop it in the fridge every time you make it. Simply keep a bottle water in the fridge, or use just milk (great if you like your Huel on the creamier side)

An ice-cold combination we just can’t get enough of:

  • Vanilla powder (can be anything - V3.0, Black Edition, or Vanilla Fudge Complete Protein)
  • Chocolate Oat Milk
  • A handful of ice

Just smash it all up in a blender and you’re good to go!

Huel Hack #8 - Shake it Up

Behold, the Huel and Nutella milkshake!


  • 1-2 tsp of Nutella
  • 100ml milk (your choice!)
  • 250ml water
  • 2 scoops Chocolate Huel (can be Powder v3.0 or Black Edition)
  • A handful of ice


  • Mix the ingredients together in a blender until completely smooth
  • Pour the milkshake into a glass and dust with cocoa powder (or some chocolate shavings - no one’s judging here)

If you don’t have any Nutella – or a blender – to hand, just prepare your Chocolate Fudge Brownie Complete Protein (one scoop) with hazelnut milk for a nutritionally complete protein shake with the taste of your favourite chocolate spread!

Huel Hack #9 - Just Desserts

Looking for a sweet treat that has all the ‘nice’ without the ‘naughty’? We’ve got you covered.

‘Peanut Butter & Jelly’ Huel

To recreate the taste of classic PB&J, blend together two scoops of Vanilla v3.0 Powder with some peanut butter, blackberries, and almond milk. That’s all there is to it!

Baklava Huel

Everyone’s favourite syrup-soaked pastry, now available in Huel form! Recreate the taste of this iconic dessert by mixing Vanilla v3.0 Powder with apricot jam, honey, and almond milk.
