Huel Daily Superblend review

Huel Daily Superblend | Is It Better than Ka’chava?

Happy 2024! Welcome to this Huel Daily Superblend review, the ultimate meal replacement shake from Huel.

This is an answer to Ka’chava and part of the “healthy shakes” and supefrood packed drinks trend.

The inclusion and marketing of “superfoods” is a trend that is only going upwards in the US. That is what will be on the labels of many products this year. The addition of adaptogens, superfoods packed with antioxidants and other nutrients, makes your daily smoothies even more nutritious.

In a world where we are deficient in essential nutrients like vitamin A, D, omega-3s, fiber etc. due to the increase of ultraprocessed food consumption, a healthy alternative is certainly needed then.

Huel, one of our highest rated products, already has great meal replacement powder offerings like Huel Black & Huel Essentials, now has entered the superfood packed meal replacement arena with Huel Daily Superblend!

So what is Huel Daily Superblend? It is complete meal replacement, sourced from over 87 whole foods. Its the combination of those whole foods, plus adaptogens, protein, probiotics and greens. Each serving is 250 calories, with 25g of protein, 27g of carbs, and 6g of fat.

So is Huel’s superfood blend as good, or even better than others we’ve tried like Ka’chava or Lyfefuel? That’s the question that will be answered in this review!

Quick Recap

Here are a few answers to questions you might have:

Q: Who is Huel?

Huel is the leading brand for complete foods, and has an array of protein-packed vegan meal replacement shakes, bars and hot & savory options. They have sold to over 300M meals, and they specialise in healthy, affordable, and balanced meals.

You can read more about Huel here.

Q: What are superfoods?

The term superfoods is loosely used to describe plants, fruits, grains, and mushrooms that are high in nutrients (fiber, protein, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants…) but low in calories. Superfoods can boost your gut health, immune system, energy levels, mood, while decreasing risk of chronic diseases, anxiety, stress, and inflammation.

Q: Why are superfoods important?

Because we don’t consume enough vegetables and fruits through our diets, most of us are deficient in many essential and non-essential nutrients. The lack of these nutrients has made us more prone to chronic diseases like obesity, diabetes, and can also affect our daily lives (lower energy, worse mood, worse digestion etc).


Looking at the packaging, I honestly thought this was Huel Daily Greens and was excited about that, as it’s my favorite greens powder. Then I was worried as I thought it was a flavored greens powder, which if you think that sounds dreadful…I’ve had one, and it is!

But come to find out is a superfood shake, one I had not heard anything about was surprising considering I thought that their current powders were all selling very well. As written, Huel has recently crossed the $200 million mark in revenue!

Being that I love both Ka’chava and Lyfefuel, I was really interested to know how good Huel’s Ka’chava alternative would be.

Plus, I reiterate, I think “superfood” is going to be the “AI” of complete food. An offering you just have to have in the product stack to show you’re to be taken seriously.

All “Hueled” Up

1. Very filling & neutral tasting. Versatile and had me full.

2. Pretty smooth after shaking. Enjoy blender free, which is not the case for other superfood meal shakes.

3. Detailed label. Tells you where every nutrient comes from.

4. Cheaper than direct competitor.

5. No minimum purchase requirement.

To Improve

1. No vanilla = Doesn’t taste like vanilla.

2. Questionable benefit over existing products.

3. No differentiating flavors.

Nutritional Breakdown

Huel Daily Superblend is a vegan, gluten-free, soy-free, artificial sweetener free meal replacement shake that will provide you with all the essential nutrients your body needs and more.

When it comes to the superfood packed shakes, nutrition is one of the most important aspects to analyze.

These meal replacement shakes often try to pack too much and add fillers or ingredients that are not in high enough quantities. That’s why often, I prefer to have a green drink on the side instead.

Huel Superfood Blend ingredients

Huel Daily Superblend Nutrition Overview

Macros (C/P/F)39/38/23
FeaturesNut Free, Soy Free,
Dairy Free, Gluten Free
Includes ProbioticsYes
Artificial SweetenersNo
Synthetic AdditivesNo
Contains All MicronutrientsYes
Controversial IngredientsNone


Per 250kcal serving:

  • Total Carbs: 27g, 10% of DV.
  • Net Carbs: 21g, (Total Carbs – Dietary Fiber – Non-digestible Carbs)
  • Sugars: 3g, 6% of DV
  • Fiber: 6g, 21% of DV.

Huel Daily Superblend is not too carb heavy, and provides and even balance of carbs to protein. The carbs come from gluten free oats, a great source of complex carbs.

Also, 6g of fiber is not a bad start to your day, and puts you in position to hit the 20g of fiber recommended for daily intake. Considering that 95% of Americans don’t meet the dietary fiber intakes, this is very positive.

Daily Superblend is sweetened using monk fruit extract. Not surprising as Huel is known for avoiding artificial sweetners.


Per 250kcal serving:

  • Total Protein: 25g, 50% of DV
  • Source(s): Pea, Oats, Hemp Seed, Fava Bean & Flaxseed Protein

As with other Huel products, the base will be pea protein and oats. However, they have added a few more plant-based protein sources to make the amino acid profile more complete. That said, not all of these protein sources are optimally absorbed into our body.

Hemp seeds contain similar amounts of protein as beef or lamb by weight, and therefore is a excellent source to include. Fava beans are also packed with plant protein, and soluble fiber, also making it a welcomed addition.


Per 250kcal serving:

  • Total Fats: 6g, 8% of DV.
  • Saturated Fats: 2g, 10% of DV.
  • Omega-3s: 1.5g
  • Omega-6s: 1.5g
  • MCT: 0.8g

Always a strong point of all Huel products, their inclusion of healthy fats, and them actually quantifying them so you know what you’re getting. As seen above, you know just how much of each of these very beneficial fats are in each serving of Huel Daily Superblend.

Flaxseed oil and hemp seeds are exceptionally rich in two essential fatty acids, linoleic acid (omega-6) and alpha-linolenic acid (omega-3). While coconut is responsible for MCTs (medium chain triglycerides).

Huel Daily Superfood blend at a glance.


Worry not when it comes to micros, as this is another strong point of Huel Daily Superblend. They boast 27 vitamins and minerals, sources from over 87 whole food ingredients.

The only drawback is that being natural, the amounts of each can vary wildly. Some are as little as 15%, while other exceed 100%.

That said, according to Huel, there are some synthetic vitamins & minerals added to this blend to make it complete.


Alongside the all the macros & micros, we have wide reaching adaptogen profile made up of quite a few roots, mushrooms and the like.

While the blend contains many types ingredients, the overall volume per serving does fall short next to its closest competitor.

Needless to say, this is probably not the product to turn to if focus, sleep, or anxiety reductions is super high on your list. There are much better products for that if that’s the goal.


No mainline allergen in this product. No soy, nuts, fish, gluten or artificial sweeteners are present.

Huel Daily Superblend Benefits

So what are the benefits of Huel Daily Superblend? Why should you spend extra to buy “Huel’s heathiest meal shake”?

Huel Daily Superblend benefits

For those who cannot see the image above, here are some of the health benefits Huel claims:

  • Immune support
  • Brain boost
  • Heart health
  • Supports energy levels
  • Better sleep
  • Lowers stress levels

Nutrient Boost

Many of these benefits come from being a complete food that provides you with all the vitamins and minerals. Meal replacement shakes are a healthy option for a balanced meal that provide nutrients that we lack in our diets.

Some examples include, omega-3 fatty acids, which have key roles in proper brain function. Lack of omega-3 can lead to dry skin, hairloss, and increased risk of dementia. Similarly, vitamin D deficiency – 42% of US adults are deficient – has been linked with hypertension, cardiovascular diseases, and poor bone health.

Thus, Huel Daily Superblend offers an insurance for your short and long-term health.

Adaptogens to Manage Stress and Help You Focus

One differentiating factor of Huel Daily Superblend vs other meal replacements is their inclusion of adaptogens.

Adaptogens are natural ingredients that help modulate your response to stress, anxiety, and might help you increase your cognitive functions.

In Huel Daily Superblend you will get 616mg of ashwagandha, Cordyceps, Reishi mushroom, Lion’s Mane mushroom, Siberian Ginseng and many more. All of these, have been proved to have positive effects in your mood and cognitive performance. Ashwagandha can help you deal with stress, while Cordyceps can energize you and boost immune function.

However, the doses found in Huel Daily Superblend are not very high. For instance, experts recommend at least 2g of Cordyceps to notice its benefits. Ashwagandha is recommended in doses of 250-500mg, whereas Reishi is also cited at 2g per day.

Thus, while you might notice some minor benefits, especially if you are not used to them, specialised supplements like Nootrum mushrooms will be better for these purposes.

Antioxidants, Anti-inflammatory Agents and Other Phytonutrients – Great Health Boost

For me, the main benefit of taking Huel’s Daily Superblend will be related to the vegetable and fruit intake.

Vegetables and fruits are rich in phytonutrients, non-essential nutrients that can boost our overall health. An common example are antioxidants like beta-carotene, which fight free radicals created in our body. Accumulation of free radicals can lead to early cancer, cardiovascular and neurodegenerative diseases.

Similarly, the role of anti-inflammatory compounds reduce inflammation that can cause pain and develop into chronic diseases like arthritis.

The inclusion of the superfood blend will boost your immune system, improve your health, and promote longevity.

Taste Test


  • Very neutral vanilla taste, great to make smoothies with.
  • Not overly sweet.
  • Mixes better than close competitors (no blender needed).
  • Keeps you full for hours

I have vanilla in the house for taste testing today. Big thanks to Huel to for providing the product of this brand new powder.

Huel Daily Superblend review

Mixing went pretty well, though I’d recommend NOT using the Huel shaker, as its tough to measure with and only uses a grate to break everything up.

Tastewise, its ok. Very neutral, smooth and easy to drink. It’s not very “vanilla” like, and only contains “natural flavor” instead of vanilla. It actually is very similar to Kachava’s vanilla flavor, but it does mix considerably better.

I think this is a great for a smoothie base, and I will definitely try it with more fruit, veggies and nut butters.

The shake is very thick, and needs more liquid than mentioned on the directions, at least in my opinion. After drinking it, I was plenty full for over 2 hours.

Is Huel Daily Superblend Worth It?

Huel Daily Superblend is an excellent product at an incredibly competitive price when comparing to similar products like Ka’chava, Lyfefuel or AG-1 Drink.

In fact, it’s the cheapest per serving and per calorie.

However, if you are already a Huel customer and you are thinking on upgrading from Huel Black or Huel Original to the Daily Superblend, that’s a different story. Even though Huel Daily Superblend is a great product, it is considerably more expensive (twice the price) and offers benefits that you might not need.

As such, you could try to upgrade, or instead buy the Huel Daily Greens to get the benefits you would get from the Daily Superblend, as well as, your regular Huel shake.

Huel DSB vs. Huel & Kachava

Before we look at Huel Daily Superblend against other products, I thought it would be useful to take a look at it against the other offerings in the Huel lineup.

Let’s start with a brief description of what each product is:

  • Huel Essential: Huel’s budget meal replacement shake option.
  • Huel Black: A high protein, low carb, gluten free and artificial sweetener free shake.
  • Huel Original: A high protein, plant-based shake for almost everybody. The compromise between price, and benefits.
  • Huel Daily Superblend. No compromises on price. The healthiest, most nutrient-packed Huel shake.

From the information above, it’s clear that Huel Essentials and the Daily Superblend are the extremes. One is for those looking to get the cheapest meal replacement shake, and the other is the most complete one.

Huel Black vs Huel Daily Superblend Review

The actual question is what’s better, Huel Black vs Daily Superblend. The price difference is quite noticeable, so do you want to upgrade to Huel Daily Superblend?

Why Choose Huel Black?

  • Better taste and more flavors
  • Larger servings
  • More affordable
  • 40g of serving

Why Choose Daily Superblend?

  • You want as many nutrients as possible
  • Extra antioxidants, anti-inflammatory agents, adaptogens, vegetables
  • Lower calories

In short, both are excellent choices. Huel Black will be better for those focused on building muscle or those who need bigger meals, as it’s considerably cheaper per calorie.

The Huel Daily Superblend will be better suited for those who need 1 or 2 super nutritious meals a day to boost their health.

My personal choice would be to opt for Huel Black plus the Daily Greens to maximize benefits.

Huel Daily Superblend vs Ka’chava

Now lets look at Huel up against arguably, the product that is directly competing against…Kachava.

CategoryHuel Daily

Frankly, these are both the same product for all intents and purposes.

Diving into the numbers, there are no glaring differences outside of the number of flavors offered by Ka’chava, 5 compared to 2. Ka’chava has slightly fewer carbs, and they both have varying protein sources.

Both products have similar tasting vanilla flavors. Kachava however, has some really good other options such as Chai and Cocount Acai.

Nevertheless, Huel Daily Superblend is more affordable. In this case, you are getting a better value.

Ok, well that was…something.

Make no mistake, Huel is a crown jewel in the complete food space. They have innovated, expanded, and prospered. Their worldwide footprint, and plethora of great products merit praise.

As far as Huel Daily Superblend, it seems to be a very decent product, one that is a fierce competitor to Ka’chava, Lyfefuel and other premium blends. It cheaper than most, and mixes well without needing a blender. Nutritionally, it’s almost identical to Ka’chava. Thus, a great product.

When comparing it to Huel’s other powders, I still prefer opting for Huel Black, as it is a cheaper alternative, and I have many more flavors to choose from. For the greens, antioxidants, and so on, I love drinking my Huel Daily Greens. Both together, make an unbeatable health combo
