My Soylent powder should arrive today but the pitcher and scoop will not be here until middle of next week. How much powder and water should I mix for one 500 calorie meal?
When I was doing powder, I always just made a whole pitcher at a time and poured out one meal at a time as needed.
However, to measure powder for a single meal (1/4 of a bag), here are a couple of threads that may be of use:
It really doesn’t particularly matter. What matters is how much powder you consume; the water is just there to help you drink down the powder.
What would your answer to the question how much water can I drink when I take a pill? The answer: as much as you want.
I think I would go with a third of a glass of powder and two thirds of water, and change according to taste.
Ther are instructions for preparing a glass of Soylent in the pamphlet that comes with a box of Soylent.
~1:8 by volume…
I always add about 1.6 liters of water to make a 2 liter pitcher. So that would be .4 liters of water to what ever amount of powder you need to get to 500 cal.
i add water to 115 g of soylent to fill a magic bullet kind, up to 600 mL, then mix it, it goes down to 500mL give or take. You can try with less water, depending of the thickness you want.
I make one serving at a time, so I use 4 heaping tablespoons + 5oz of water and 6 ice cubes (plus supergreens powder and stevia) in a blender. I increase/decrease powder based on my energy and caloric needs, but I find this to be highly imprecise but a system that works pretty well for me. I’m still working through a surplus of 1.4 and I can’t drink it when it’s pre-made; tastes like slime. So one cup at a time in the blender with ice is awesome.
