Have you come across Huel Ready-to-drink yet? If not, then you’re going to be blown away at just how much this product simplifies meal times.

Huel Ready-to-drink: What is it?

As the name suggests, this a ready-made version of a Huel shake. All the hard work (not that it’s a lot of work to make a Huel shake) has been done for you!

A Huel base is mixed with water (and other ingredients) to create a ready-to-drink shake. You can either order it online or buy it in certain UK supermarkets and stores.

Each drink contains an ideal amount of protein, carbohydrates, essential fats, protein and fibre, as well as 26 essential vitamins and minerals – more on this later.

Huel Ready-to-drink Review

I only recently started using this Huel product but I’m already a big fan. Although it’s mixed with water—as opposed to plant-based milk, which I usually make my Huel shakes with—it’s incredibly creamy and filling.

The only flavours that seem to be consistently available in supermarkets near me are the vanilla and the chocolate ones, although I did spot a berry one just the other day! The vanilla option is my favourite so far as it’s the perfect amount of sweet for me. I find the chocolate flavour to be really tasty, but a little bit sweeter than I’m usually in the mood for.

I’ve mostly been using Huel Ready-to-drink when I go to the gym. This is because it’s high in protein, which is great for supporting my workouts, and also because it’s very filling, so it helps to power me through longer exercise sessions.

I’ve also started trying to swap out lunch for a bottle of this once or twice a week. I’ve found that it does keep me full for three to four hours and then I’ll start looking for a snack.

FAQs

Got questions about this product? Hopefully you’ll find the answers in the following FAQ section!

Does Huel Ready-to-drink need to be refrigerated?

Unopened bottles of Huel should be stored in a cool, dry place. Once you’ve opened a bottle, ensure you keep it in the fridge and consume it within 12 hours.

Where can I buy Huel Ready-to-drink?

All flavours of this product are available on the official Huel website. You can also find it in Sainsbury’s, Ocado and Tesco supermarkets across the UK, and also in Holland & Barrett stores.

How many calories are in each bottle?

Is this a good weight-loss product?

If you’re counting calories to lose weight, then this product can be a helpful addition to your diet. If this is a goal of yours, then you might want to try swapping out your breakfast or lunch with a bottle of Huel.

What’s better? Huel Ready-to-drink vs Huel powder?

The powder is a very convenient way to up your nutrition and balance your diet. However, the powder does require that you have the time and forethought to prepare a shake, especially if you enjoy it more once it’s been left in the fridge overnight.

The Ready-to-drink version can be more effortlessly enjoyed and this may help you stick to your healthy eating ambitions. It’s also easy to buy one while you’re out, meaning you never have to prepare it in advance.

Although I think the ready-made version is a better choice, Huel Black Edition is still a fantastic product, so do check it out!

Does Huel Ready-to-drink fill you up?

In my experience, yes! I find a bottle of this to be really filling and so it works well for me as a meal replacement. When used at the gym as a protein shake, I’ll drink it slowly throughout the second half of my workout so as not to get too full.
