The key to liking this popular meal-replacement drink? Mix in your fave smoothie ingredients.
The cheekily named Soylent meal-replacement drink mix claims to boost energy, improve health and help with weight loss. But while this super-powered dinner-in-a-cup could be useful on busy workdays, there’s one problem: it looks, tastes and feels like pancake batter. There are, however, some ways to “hack” the product with add-ins that (marginally) improve the flavour and texture.
Method: Add two teaspoons of matcha powder to the standard recipe.Result: Soylent that now tastes like matcha. Whether this is an improvement is up to you.
Method: Mix with two tablespoons of peanut butter, 10 strawberries and ½ cup of milk.Result: Like blending water and a PB and J sandwich.
Method: Blend with spinach, arugula, kiwi, green grapes and lime juice.Result: A great way to get your fruits and veggies, if you can get over the grainy consistency.
