This recipe ends up tasting basically like oatmeal. It smells kind of gross (I think it's mostly the choline bitartrate and partially the whey) but it tastes fine.
For my use (as discussed in Oats, Whey 'n Maltodextrin 2 Meals a Day) I'm eating conventional food for dinner, so I've dropped the salt down to only 1.5 g per recipe, which improves the taste. However, if I were consuming only soylent I would need the full 4 g per recipe in order to get enough salt.
I have no idea how much sucralose I'm actually adding; I have a teeny little scoop and I don't fill it all the way. (My scale is accurate only to the nearest gram.) I also add a couple of dashes of cinnamon to each blender bottle of soylent; again, without really measuring.
Rather than grind up the multivitamin and mix it in, I simply take 1 pill each night before brushing my teeth.
Update 5/12: Usually I just throw my soylent in a blender bottle, shake it up, and let it sit in the fridge for a couple of hours (or overnight) before drinking it. Last night I threw my soylent powder and some water in an actual blender, and blended the heck out of it.
Result: It's smoother, but oddly viscous... I had to add extra water to be able to drink it. I'm guessing that blending the psyllium husk powder better is causing it to emulsify more, and thus the almost slimy texture.
I find that the slightly gritty suspension I get from the blender bottle doesn't really bother me, and the thicker mixture kinda does, so I think I'll just be using my blender bottles in the future. However, if the grit bothers you, give blending a try!
