Ripped Protein Coffee Creamer Review

So, back on July 28, I won a bag of lean vanilla bean coffee creamer, made by Ripped Cream, from Peace, Love, and Low Carb's blog (www.peaceloveandlowcarb.com).

Ripped Cream is a fairly new company that makes "good for you" coffee creamer.

The creamer currently comes in two flavors, chiseled chocolate & lean vanilla bean. The powdered creamer is gluten free, and contains 11 amino acids. 

You will receive 50% of the daily allowed dose of Vitamin D3, and it boasts to have as much protein as one whole egg.

In one serving, which is 2 tablespoons, you will receive 5 grams of protein, 8 sugars, and 10 carbohydrates. One serving is 90 calories. 

2 tablespoons is a big serving; I generally have been using just one in an eight ounce cup of steaming coffee.

It does not mix well with cold coffee—if you are more of an iced coffee drinker, be sure to add it to the hot brew of coffee, and then refrigerate. 

Despite already smelling and tasting sweet, I found myself having to add a packet of Stevia. 

I didn't get to try the chiseled chocolate (I was promised two full sized 8 oz. bags), but the lean vanilla bean is just OK. 

One 8 oz. bag will set you back $11.99, and is currently only available online. It is available in select health food stores (ex: Whole Foods), but check their website to be sure. 

In my personal opinion, I'm going to pass on this protein-infused coffee creamer.
