An updated version of UK RDA Simple Soylent Mark II.

I replace about a third of my meals with this - only because I eat with my family every day and soylent isn't the most social of meals. It actually tastes pretty darn good! I don't even add the vanilla extract anymore, as it is so nice without it.

This one has nutrient levels I have checked against UK RDA values (see Nutrient Profile for sources). Lots of other recipes here tend to exceed upper limits of nutrition in some cases. I've tried to keep everything within acceptable limits. (Although, I'll admit that the manganese is pretty close, due to it being oat based!)

I've tried to keep the measurements as simple as possible for the bigger ingredients.

Mark III has a higher protein level than normal UK RDA advice, but it is much closer to US RDA levels as found in other recipes. I am quite active and workout a few times a week, so the higher protein works well for me. As a bonus, it is also a little cheaper than my old Mark II.

Thanks to Dave Hall, who pointed out a mistake with the potassium sourcing. This is now corrected (by 'borrowing' the potassium source from cultofmonkey's LiquidCake V1.3).

It tastes like an oaty vanilla milkshake. Be sure to blend it well and shake it up before drinking to avoid getting a gritty end to your lunch.

UPDATE: I've developed a new 2000 Kcal version with an updated nutrient profile. Introducing UK RNI Simple Soylent Mark VI

I prefer my soylent thicker than the suggested amounts here but once I'd reduced the water, it's perfect. I've traded out some of the vitamin pills for the ones I had left over from previous soylent attempts and added in Greens Tablets from BULKPOWDERS just because of the novelty of having vegetables in a pill.

The flavour is pretty neutral, ripe for flavourings. I'm thinking of peanut butter next time. First attempt at this was not very filling at all. Got hungry before my next meal. Drinking my second mix now, hoping it'll keep me going for longer now that it's thicker. It might just be a psychological thing.
