Chocolate Mint Soylent Recipe


Here are detailed instructions on how to prepare my favorite form of Soylent.

In a blender bottle, combine:
1 original scoop Soylent 1.5 (approx 1/2 cup)
1 Tbsp Hershey’s Special Dark Cocoa Powder
1 Tbsp Penzey’s Dutch Cocoa Powder (

Close the blender bottle and shake in order to mix powders thoroughly (prevents clumping of cocoa powder when water is added).

Open the blender bottle and add:

3 original scoops water (approx 1-1/2 cup)
1 Tbsp of Vitafiber Syrup ( adds sweetness, a creamier, thicker texture, and corrects Soylent’s deficiency in fiber.
5 drops Sweetzfree sucralose ( this is much more concentrated than store-bought sucralose drops, so you will need to adjust if you are using a different brand.
1/8 tsp Frontier peppermint flavor ( a little goes a long way

Close blender bottle, shake, and chill for several hours before serving.


Meh, too much work, defeats the purpose of Soylent for me.


Why two different kinds of cocoa powder?


Fair enough. But there is a cooking thread for a reason. :slightly_smiling:


Hershey’s Special Dark Cocoa has a taste that resembles the chocolate wafers in an Oreo cookie. It’s a taste that goes well with Soylent, but when I use just Hershey’s dark cocoa it doesn’t really taste like rich, authentic chocolate to me. On the other hand, Penzey’s dutch cocoa powder is a high-end, rich cocoa powder bursting with chocolate flavor, more like a melted chocolate bar. However, I found that if I use only Penzey’s, the richness combines with the flavor of Soylent to taste overly acidic/tart. For me, a 50/50 mixture gave me the rich chocolate flavor I wanted in a way that meshed well with the Soylent flavor, tasting better than either powder by itself.


Interesting how you separate the wet and dry ingredients (as cooks do when baking). But that raises the possibility of preparing larger batches. You could mix up a large batch of powders, at least as much as you could mix in a food processor (2 cups?) or even whisk several cups in a large bowl.

Mix an equivalent quantity of water, syrup, and flavor drops and chill it. Then you could make one serving by mixing a scoop of powder with some chilled liquid. Easier? and ready to drink?
