Ya’ll know how we’re suckers for a good smoothie, right? Well, we’re always looking for the perfect protein powder to accompany our latest fruit-and-veggie concoctions. And while we’ve found some amazing ones, we’re always willing to try new things. Especially when said new things are full of good stuff without a lot of calories. Case in point: the new EAS Lean 15 protein powder.
We were recently sent some EAS Lean 15 protein powder to try and—despite the fact that it does have a rather lengthy ingredient list that’s hard to pronounce (read: not super clean food)—its nutritional stats are pretty darn impressive. We’re talking 100 calories per two-scoop serving with 15 grams of protein (whey and casein, if you’re curious), five grams of fiber, 100 percent of vitamins C and E, and prebiotics and B vitamins. I mean, seriously, 15 grams of protein for 100 calories? And there’s only two grams of sugar? I mean, that’s a smoothie girl’s dream stats!
Also, the stuff tastes good. Like really good. I had the EAS Lean 15 Vanilla flavor and mixed with strawberries, kale and ice it was like a strawberries and cream smoothie from heaven. Then I tried it with oranges, then raspberries, then blueberries. All super delicious—like crave-worthy delicious.
Again, let me say that I’m personally not thrilled with the ingredient list: soy lechithin kind of freaks me out, and EAS Lean 15 is sweetened with sucralose (Splenda) not stevia. But if you’re looking for a protein powder that delivers a lot of protein without a lot of calories and are okay with eating something that’s a little more processed to get there, this could be it. For about $20 for a 1.7-pound cannister, it’s not cheap, but it’s definitely not the most expensive protein powder out there.
Anyone else tried EAS Lean 15? What were your thoughts? Do you ever eat foods that are more processed to get in more protein or less sugar? Do tell! —Jenn
