What Are The Best Milk Alternatives?

Making a successful Lean Mocha shake or smoothie depends not only on the addition of delicious and protein-powered Lean Mocha but on which milk you choose to use.

Most diets like keto or the low carb diet will steer you away from traditional cow’s milk, and for good reason. While it can be a good source of calcium and other nutrients like magnesium and B vitamins, it is generally packed with calories and sugary carbs. Which is why most new eating regimens will have you looking for milk alternatives.

You’ll notice that in most of our favorite Lean smoothie recipes we use unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk, which also makes them great recipes for people with dairy allergies or lactose intolerance. We favor almond milk because it boasts plenty of nutrients while leaving out a lot of the dairy milk downsides. Almond milk can contain just a quarter of the calories and less than half the fat of regular cow’s milk. It’s also very low carb which means it works seamlessly with a low carb or keto diet, and has a mild nutty flavor that works well with so many Lean smoothies.

Coconut milk is also a super low carb, creamy milk alternative option, with the added tropical twist of a mild coconut flavor, which works well in bright, fresh smoothies.

But don’t make the mistake of thinking those are your only two milk alternative choices. There is also soy milk, oat milk, rice milk, cashew milk, macadamia milk, hemp milk, and quinoa milk. Really, there’s something for everyone outside the world of dairy.

What Does A Lean Shake Do?

At its worst, a Lean shake is a delicious and ultra-convenient breakfast or snack. At its best, a Lean shake is an integral part of your journey toward healthy weight loss and increased energy and overall health!

A nutrient-packed protein drink like one of these delicious Lean Mocha shakes can do so many incredible things for your health. Let’s just start a quick list.

A Lean shake will:

  • Provide 10 grams of usable whey and soy protein to increase lean muscle development, speed up muscle recovery, and fight hunger
  • Supply you with a wide range of nutrients including vitamins A, B6, B12, C, D, E, and K, as well as folate, selenium, and all nine essential amino acids
  • Fast track full nutrient absorption with a proprietary blend of digestive enzymes found in papaya and pineapple
  • Reduce cravings to support healthy and faster weight loss at just 50-70 calories per scoop (depending on flavor—Lean Mocha contains just 60 calories per scoop!)
  • Increase energy with high-level nutrition (and even a zip of caffeine if you opt for a Lean Mocha shake)
  • Ease stress with its easy, on-the-go solution to healthy eating
  • Blow your mind with its delicious versatility as you use it in everything from a Lean Mocha shake to protein bites and pancakes

Long story short, a Lean shake does wonders. It’s the perfect addition to any healthy lifestyle!

Can You Use A Lean Shake As A Meal Replacement?

Lean is a premium protein shake that works perfectly as a light meal replacement or snack any time of day. That said, Lean is not considered a full meal replacement shake, whereas Xyngular’s Lean Meal is. The difference? Lean consciously provides awesome nutritional benefits while Lean Meal offers complete nutritional support in the form of a full serving of fruits, greens, adaptogens, and probiotics alongside the protein boost.

So, make a Lean Mocha shake your go-to if you’re looking for a super-effective supplemental piece of your greater dieting meal plan. It will help you crush cravings, lose weight, and hit you with a kick of energy! If a complete meal replacement shake is what you’re after, get yourself on the Lean Meal train!

Meal Replacement vs Protein Shakes?

Make no mistake—there is a big difference between meal replacement shakes and standard protein shakes.

Your typical protein shake is formulated solely for athletic performance or recovery. They’re generally protein-heavy belly-fillers that lack the nutrients found in a full meal replacement shake, which means they’re ill-suited to be part of a long-term and healthy weight loss plan. The right meal replacement shake for you—like Lean Meal—is created with a broader (and better!) focus on full-spectrum health, which will actually keep you on goal for weight loss and an overall happier, healthier you! Not only will it keep you full, but it will supply the vitamins, minerals, and goodness you’re missing out on by skipping an actual prepared meal.*

We know, we know—you’re ready for that Lean Mocha shake, snack, or (ahem, AND) dessert—so just hop over to the Lean Mocha page and get yours before it's gone!
