Leanfit Completegreen Protein Powder

Hello! Whenever I’m approached by Canadian companies I always jump on the chance to try their product and promote them, so when Leanfit approached me to try and review their Completegreen protein powder I jumped at the chance. Finding a good protein powder that is dairy free can be difficult and you often have to go to a health food store or else purchase soy protein powder (not that tasty).

The first thing I noted about this particular protein powder was that it’s available in several Canadian grocery stores; Costco, Extra Foods, The Real Canadian Superstore, Atlantic Superstore, Loblaws. You can also purchase it on Amazon. 

Completegreen is a blend of 5 plant-based protein sources (pea, hemp, flaxseed, brown rice, chia seed) and is vegan, dairy-free, gluten-free, soy-free, GMO-free, and kosher.

Nutrition-wise each 30g scoop has 110 calories, only 2g of sugar (it’s sweetened with Stevia) and 19g of protein.

I have one of two breakfasts every morning, I either have oatmeal or a smoothie so I’ve been getting a lot of use out of the powder but while I was researching the product for this post I found a recipe page on Leanfit’s website and there were so many other ways I can use protein powder and haven’t been so I tried out an amazing recipe over the weekend!

So much more I can do with protein powder than breakfast smoothies

Chocolate Avocado Protein Pudding

OMG! How have I never known about protein pudding??? On the Leanfit recipe page they shared a super easy recipe from the blog Gabbys Free. It is so easy to do (only  4 ingredients) and so tasty!!! This will be my new go-to treat when I’m having a sweet craving.

What I liked about the taste of this powder is that it wasn’t strong or too…..fake. You know how some plant based proteins have a weird taste like a chewable vitamin or something? Texture-wise, it didn’t get as smooth or creamy as a whey protein would but it wasn’t as chunky as I’ve had with other plant based protein powder.

If you’re looking for a plant-based protein powder, check out Leanfit’s Completegreen.

Leanfit carries other products besides Completegreen including whey and whey isolate.
