Poured entire bag of Soylent café mocha into Vitamix container. It filled up to 32 fl oz line.
Blended dry powder by starting at 1, quickly increasing to 10, and then at 10 for 30 seconds.
Powder is noticeably finer, although clumped into small chunks.
Repeated blending for another 30 seconds.
Blender and powder began getting hot and smelled sharp. Might have over blended it. I quickly stopped the blender.
Transferred powder out of blender and filled with 32 ounces of hot (175° F), filtered water.
Turned on blender at speed 1, and poured powder into blender through flour sifter until all powder was liquified. (Powder would not pour into sifter. It didn’t want to move. Had to use a spoon to drag it out.)
Resulted in 44 ounces. Minimal, if any head. Small bubbles on surface.
Blended in 26 fl oz of hot, filtered water on speed 1 for 30 seconds.
Extremely thin head of foam on top (approx 1 mm)
Poured 14 fl oz into a 16 fl oz mason jar and remainder into a 64 fl oz mason jar.
(I was going to prep 5 servings in the RTD bottles behind them, but my assistant (13-year-old daughter) forgot to wash them.)
I tasted the mixture and found the texture to be a little bit less gritty than the last experiment, but at this point it is hard to tell the difference.
It was surprisingly nice to drink warm. I might try that again in the future. It had a slightly nutty tone to the flavor, which I believe was caused by the overheating during the dry-blending. Oddly enough it wasn’t a bad thing.
Both containers were put in the refrigerator overnight to chill.
I’ll try it tomorrow morning and report back!
