Unboxed: 7 clean non-protein powders to power smoothies

Powders are more than just protein sources. A new generation of clean, no-protein powders offers convenience and colors to customers' smoothies.

Powders offer the promise of being free of fillers and full of life. They are a delicious, pill-free way to get a nutritional boost, and they aren't all about protein anymore.

Check out these new shelf-stockers that pack a big-time nutritional punch with nothing to choke down and no non-nutritive fillers or excipients to worry about. Oh sure, they have sugar, but not a lot—and most get their sweetness from low- or no-calorie natural sweeteners like monk fruit and stevia. We even taste-tested them so you can give solid recommendations based on our expert palettes.
