Green ‘superfood’ drinks aren’t just for runners; 20 something gym goers and those 30 something yummy mummies bouncing around in their trendy workout gear – women (and men) over 40, can reap the benefits too.
We know the positives of these green healthy drinks – they can help reduce bloating, balance gut health, kill cravings and increase energy. But anyone who has ever downed a wheatgrass shot or any other ‘good for you’ green drink in powder or juice form, will know that they taste absolutely horrible.
What makes Lean Greens powder supplement different is that it’s actually drinkable. You can consume a glass without grimacing, safe in the knowledge that it’s one the UK’s most popular super greens drink, backed by a 60 Day No Fuss, No Quibble, 100% Money Back ‘Taste’ Guarantee.

What makes this company unique though, is that they’re upfront about one of their ingredients that not everyone may be a fan of:
When we first created Lean Greens we didn’t want a product like all the other greens drinks on the market. i.e. something that had the texture of a field of hay and the taste of the sludge found at the bottom of your fish tank.
We wanted to create something for people who wouldn’t normally consume a greens drink. Up until 2012, you needed to be a tree-hugger or have absolutely no taste buds to drink greens… they were AWFUL.
Lean Greens decided that they would add a starch called Maltodextrin to the supplement to make the texture and taste palatable, and therefore more accessible to people (like me), who would shy away from traditional green drink supplements for fear of gagging at the taste.
The first thing I will state is that it does still taste a tiny bit green, but certainly not ‘wheatgrass green’. When shaken up, the powder dissolves completely and the texture is (thankfully) as smooth as silk and goes down easily. It’s pleasant to drink and perfect for the mornings. I usually like to ‘disguise’ green drinks in smoothies, but there’s absolutely no need to here.
A glass in the morning will set you up for the day. However, I take the shaker into work and make it up at 4pm. I’m a morning person in a house with three men who stumble around grouchily in the mornings, not wanting to talk, listen to music or discuss the news – I do all 3 anyway and talk to myself.
My slump is in the afternoon, I feel I really need the drink then to make it to the evenings. It ‘wakes me up’ and by the time we get home, I’m not like the boys, reaching for something to snack on before dinner, plus, I’m more alert.
BLACK SMOOTH SHAKER LEAN GREENS £7.99
This is the Lean Greens Smooth Shaker.
- Designed specifically to mix up your Lean Greens perfectly every time.
- Extra compartments for storing powder and other capsules and softgels.
- Perfectly safe for the dishwasher.
Now, this is clever. There’s a small storage compartment that can either be placed in the bottle, or screwed to the bottom of the shaker. This means that you can measure out your Lean Greens powder and store it until you need it, this gives you the freedom to mix your drink when and wherever it’s convenient.
There’s also another little compartment within it, to store extra supplements in tablet or capsule form which I’ve found very useful for my Sunshine Formula capsules.
