So I’ve read about people flavoring their Soylent in the past, but I never bothered because I wanted to be a “Soylent purist” so to speak.
But that was months ago when I was still consuming one of the past versions of powdered Soylent which I thought already tasted great (the oil packet + powder combo).
Recently I bought Soylent 1.5 and frankly, I thought it tasted much worse. Much more like pancake batter, and less like a sugary smoothie like the past version of Soylent (1.2?) that I had.
So I decided to try some flavoring. I added two spoons of cocoa powder and mixed them to my glass of Soylent this morning and wow - the taste is remarkably better. The chocolate flavor isn’t strong at all, just enough to balance it out so it no longer tastes like pancake batter.
I think I will be flavoring all of my powdered Soylent from now on. At least until they release a new version that tastes better than their current one.
Oh, and one pro-tip: To add cocoa powder, you have to blend it into the Soylent. The Soylent is too thick to stir it in properly, all the powder just ends up not mixed well with the Soylent.
