Banana + Chocolate or Espresso = Banana Split
Orange + Vanilla = Orange Creamsicle
Raspberry + Orange + Banana = Fruit Punch
Raspberry + Espresso = Raspberry Mocha
Vanilla mixed with any other flavor to make it milder for long-term use

You might want to mix different fuels. When you do that, make sure to get the correct amount of calories. Say you weigh between 55-70 kg. That means you need around 100-150 kcal per hour.
If you want to mix Energy Gel with HEED, for example, you can take 80 calories from the Energy Gel, and 40 from HEED. You still get the correct amount of calories you need, which are around 100-150 kcal, but you are using different fuels.
When you mix, don’t go beyond your recommended amount of calories per hour.
