Product: Ripped Cream Lean Vanilla Bean Coffee Creamer – $11.99+
Last month, I was overjoyed to actually win a contest that I entered online. It was one of those…”Sure…I’ll enter it. I’m interested in the product, so it would be awesome to win…but if not, I’m not out anything…” And so, I put my name in and I was one of two people selected by random draw to receive an exciting product.
What was it?
Don’t you just love that name?
What is it? Coffee Creamer. Yes…coffee creamer that is gluten-free, all-natural, and high-protein.
In other words…it’s a coffee creamer that was made for me, yes? You betcha!
So, yeah…I was overjoyed. We were asked to choose which flavor we preferred, as Ripped Cream comes in two different varieties: Lean Vanilla Bean and Chizzled Chocolate. It was on a first response basis, meaning whoever replied first got first choice of the flavor. I was sort of late getting that e-mail, but I put in for the Chizzled Chocolate. The other winner beat me to the punch, because when my package arrived…the Lean Vanilla Bean was waiting for me. No big deal. I was just thrilled to be trying out this product.
Now, you are all rather aware of my sports nutritionist moving me more towards a clean eating diet. I’m thrilled to be heading that direction. So, how does this fit in? Well, I will never be able to drink my coffee black. And as we are aiming for around an 80% clean eating as far as my food goes…so this would definitely move into the 20% that isn’t heading that way…but we all make those decisions on our own, yes? It’s not that this creamer is horribly bad. It’s not . The ingredients really are all-natural. But…most people would say…drink the coffee black. NEVER!
Well, as I was working the artificial sweeteners…including the flavored syrup…out of the kitchen…and I had used up my So Delicious Coconut Creamer…this was up. Time to give it a try.
Let’s start with what this coffee creamer adds to the coffee itself. A serving size of Ripped Cream is 2 tablespoons, although I just drop 1 tablespoon in the coffee in the morning. It’s all it needs. A serving, however of Ripped Cream Lean Vanilla Bean adds only 90 calories to your coffee and only 2.5 grams of fat. Aside from that, you get 8 grams of sugar in a serving. But you also receive 5 grams of powerful protein. This coffee creamer also serves up a nice dose of Vitamin D. You feel good about drinking it. As someone who often struggles to meet their daily protein allotment, this creamer is amazing. According to Ripped Cream’s Web site, experts recommend consuming protein within 30 minutes of waking up each morning as a way to promote optimum healthy. This makes this creamer a great addition to the morning routine as it contains as much protein as an egg.
So…how does this all work in the coffee itself?
It’s delicious. No. Really. It is. I’m actually glad I ended up with the Lean Vanilla Bean variety from Ripped Cream. It ranks right up there with other vanilla creamers I have had in the past. The only difference is…this one is actually quite good for you. I mean…just compare them. I am a huge fan of the flavor. I love how quickly it blends into the coffee…nothing lumpy left swimming in my morning wake-up mug. And it’s refreshing. It just heightens the other flavors in the coffee. When your product does all of that, plus adds a bit of nutrition to the mix…you better believe I’m on satisfied customer.
So, thank you to Rather Be Runnin’ for your blog on Ripped Cream. It caught my attention for sure. And, more thanks to Ripped Cream, for making a product that beefs up the morning brew and makes it a healthier choice for flavor. Goodbye bitter coffee…I’m getting ripped every morning.
