Is the drink healthy for you? Sounds like it. But I’m here to write about the taste. And I have to say, this smoothie tastes pretty darn good, especially the vanilla and strawberry flavors. I’d probably shy away from the chocolate. It tasted like more of a “health” drink.
So let’s focus on the best one…the vanilla. It contained a good dose of bananas and almonds. The bananas gave the drink a smooth texture and creaminess that kept me sucking down more and more. The pulverized almond specs were the hit of the smoothie…providing that little bite the drink needed.
Bottom line…I’d order the Lean1 Smoothie (vanilla) again. And…the best part, it really did act as a meal substitute. I definitely was not hungry for several hours. The 20 oz size is $4.99. Good luck if you can suck down one larger than that. They also come in 32 oz ($6.99) and 40 oz ($8.99).
The Lean1 Smoothie launches across all Smoothie Kings by July 26th. On July 27th, guests can try the Lean1 for $1, with a coupon redeemable at www.smoothieking.com/leanonus.
