New to Plenny, Not exactly impressed



Having previously only tried and used Huel, I looked into trying a different range of ‘lents’. What attracted me to Plenny powder was the price and the nutritional profile, plus the flavours.

I ordered Chocolate, Vanilla and Wake-up to try. Once arrived, I mixed up a 400 Kcal portion with 300 ml water. In short, I didn’t enjoy it. Whilst the flavours of all 3 are fine (albeit not very pronounced), the consistency is water thin, practically no texture whatsoever.

Using 250ml/200ml doesn’t really improve matters, nor does any extra powder. Leaving in Fridge doesn’t help either. This in turn leaves me hungry pretty quickly.

Shame as I had high hopes for Plenny, definitely not for me :frowning:

Recently got Mana to try, and so far Happy with the taste/texture and satiety. Also have tried Queal/Saturo and pretty happy with them.

I do hope Plenny improves in the future, as for the price it would have been my ‘lent’ of choice.


Sorry to hear you’re not a fan of the consistency Michael, that’s a bummer :frowning:

We’ve used a super finely grounded oat to make the shake super smooth, but perhaps it’s too smooth for you now. I don’t quite experience it as watery though, I use 400 kcal meals in the small shaker myself, but in general like the taste better when I use a little less water than the suggested ML’s.

In any case, we’re always experimenting and developing so keep an eye on our any new stuff that will come out (new formula, new bar etc. ), perhaps these will better satisfy your needs!

Let me know if there’s anything we can do for you in the meantime :slight_smile:


Hi Tim,

Many thanks for your reply. I am going to try making bigger shakes (600 cal breakfast, 600-800 cal lunch) with the same amount of water 350-400ml to see if that helps with satiation.

I’ll let you know how that goes :blush:


Please do! I’m sure more people would love to hear your findings :smiley:
