Lean Shakes are absolutely wonderful!
I loved my Lean Shakes. They were light and not at all thick to swallow. The flavor is also light and it gave me a wonderful full feeling without the drag down in the morning that I normally feel! Thank you!

Great product!
Love these, really delicious, and filling. No bad aftertaste, and no upset to stomach. I am lactose intolerant and the SlimFast varieties of these shakes upset my stomach terribly. So glad to find this one, which does not at all. Will be buying more!

How is this lactose free if it contains milk?
A shopper on Jun 28, 2013

This is misleading because they can put "lactose free" on it, but all it really is is the lactose and the enzyme "lactase" that is added to "cancel" out the it's not technically "lactose free" but apparently close enough that they can legally get away with it.

A shopper on Jun 19, 2013
