LeanHemp’s Organic Vegan Protein Powder

LeanHemp 700x 447

As you know, I am not the biggest fan of meat, which makes it difficult to reach my daily protein requirements.  After a hard workout, I find it much tastier to eat a hearty protein smoothie to help my body recover.

Recently, I got the chance to try LeanHemp‘s Hemp Protein Powder and I was very impressed.  Their protein powders are 100% plant based, Organic, and gluten-free!  They are made with very few ingredients.  I have seen WAY too many protein powders with lengthy ingredient lists with words I can hardly pronounce.

LeanHemp’s ‘Pure Hemp’ flavor is made with, well… hemp seed powder.  Yes, that’s it!

LeanHemp was started by a few fitness enthusiasts.  Their intent behind the brand is simple– create a product that is healthy, simple and tastes good –  “A Better Protein”.  The CEO’s grandmother is also a big inspiration for the brand.  She survived during WWII by eating hemp hearts from the fields near her home!

On taste– I tried the Chocolate Maca, Peanut Butter Maca and the Pure Hemp.  My favorite was the Peanut Butter one!  I mixed it with some frozen strawberries, bananas and almond milk and it was de-lish.

I will say, the powder is not sweet.  Which, in my opinion, is great.  Some powders are pre-sweetened (with who knows what) and has a funky taste.  I always prefer to add my own natural sweetness with frozen fruits.  I recommended adding some frozen bananas, frozen strawberries and a few orange slices.

When compared to whey protein, hemp protein has an “earthier” taste.  I don’t mind the taste because I’ve become accustomed to it.  You will find this in LeanHemp’s powders.

Hemp protein is more nutrient dense AND more easily digested than whey protein.

For a 40g serving on LeanHemp, you will get:

  • 20g protein
  • 2500 mg Omega 6 / 1000 mg Omega 3
  • 9g carbohydrates
  • 7g fiber

  • 40% RDA of Zinc

I made my first smoothie bowl with the Chocolate Maca.  I blended frozen bananas, unsweetened almond milk, and the Chocolate Maca powder together.  I topped it off with raw hemp seeds, Chia seeds and coconut flakes!

A few days later, I gave the Pure Hemp a shot in an acai bowl.  I blended Sambazon Superfruit pack, frozen bananas, unsweetened almond milk, and orange slices together.  I topped it with hemp seeds, Chia seeds, fresh banana slices and raspberries!

I love that all three flavors gave me 20 grams of organic hemp protein AND 7-10 grams of fiber.  Go check out LeanHemp and you can buy some there.  The sampler pack is on sale (at the time of this post) for only $12.99!

Thank you LeanHemp!
