SkinnyMint Fat Burning Coffee & Hot Chocolate Review

I drink Coffee or Milk Tea every morning before I start work and this has become a habit. If I don’t drink them before work, it feels like something is missing and I won’t be able to concentrate.

Recently, SkinnyMint sent me their 28 Day Fat Burning Coffee & Fat Burning Hot Chocolate to try. Even though I was very intrigued by the new launches, my first thoughts were……. “How will they taste? Will they really work?”

I would be skeptical about the results but since I have previously tried both SkinnyMint Morning and Night Teatox and both worked for me, why not give the new products a try too?

Instead of drinking coffee with high sugar content, I am drinking both the Fat Burning Coffee and Hot Chocolate on a daily basis. Just imagine…. burn your fats away while enjoying a cup of hot coffee. Sounds too good to be true?

What I am most happy about, other than the fat-burning portion is reducing my sugar intake! Although I do not really drink frizzy drinks, the coffee and tea I consumed on a daily basis is quite frightening.

Take a look at the supplement facts below – 0 Fat, 0 Sugar!

Both powders smell nice. The coffee has a coconut-y smell & taste as it is coconut flavored while the hot chocolate taste nothing less than a good cup of unsweetened chocolate. Good for people who wants that chocolatey taste in their mouth – without the calories!

You can even put them into your bag and bring them out if you do not have the time to drink them in the morning as they come in sachets form. All you need is a cup of hot water and pooooof!

The drinks can help suppress your appetite and boost your metabolism as they contain natural metabolism booster. Studies have also shown that 96% of the people who tried them had a significant decrease in appetite. As for me, I do find myself emptying my bowel more often – at a very regular timing too.

Also, whenever you feel like snacking at work, just make yourself a cup of hot chocolate. It is only 25 Cal per serving! Say no to chocolates and opt for the hot chocolate instead.

Author: Alex Chua

If you want to learn the dark art of crafting a perfect cuppa, The Coffee Academics might just be the right place. The award-winning coffee concept store hailing from Hong Kong, this specialty café sources only the best coffee beans from all over the world. It͛s roasted coffee offerings had been awarded 92 to 94 points by the World Coffee Review, achieving the distinct honour of being ranked highest in Asia and top three in the world. Not only does it serve quality coffee, The Coffee Academics teaches how to make one too. Being the first and only coffee house in Singapore to offer the Colour Your World Latte Art workshop, my friend and I, both impulsive coffee lovers but coffee-making novices, can͛t wait to try our hands on this beautiful craft.

Teaching this creative workshop is the bubbly Head Barista Vanessa Caceres (centre). Having won the Coffee Champion title at the 2015 All Star Female Barista Latte Art Champion in Bogota, Colombia, Vanessa leads an expert team of baristas in its Signature Coffee Classes. Be sure to sign up early as the coffee classes are kept small and intimate to ensure maximum hands-on learning experience.

At the beginning of the workshop, Vanessa covers the basics first, including how to brew a cup of expresso and milk frothing. Next, she introduced to us the intricate world of espresso latte art, and subsequently wow us away with a series of beautifully-drawn, colourful latte art designs. With consistent pulls and strokes, the Head Barista brought vibrancy of red, green and blue to the otherwise conventional white and brown. The colours used are naturally-extracted food dyes to prevent the taste from being compromised.

Besides including colour dynamics to the cup, Vanessa drew intricate 3D art designs like the cute cat above. Her pleasant, affable personality was infectious and we the participants were constantly engaged and intrigued to what designs she would come up next. To ensure the workshop runs smoothly, the cafe uses only professional, state-of-the-art equipment and award-winning beans for the workshops. This class could also serve as great team-building activities or with like-minded friends (up to seven participants) who appreciate good design and coffee.

͚Hey, let me draw your portrait,͛ she said enthusiastically, and in less than a minute and perhaps a few seconds of touch-ups later my friend͛s face floats on top of the latte. A visceral representation which he appreciates so much that he asked me to take a few pictures of him together with the cup for his Instagram profile pic.

Overall, I enjoyed my evening learning from Vanessa, and hopefully my friend did too. We went home happy of the deliciously brewed latte we sampled and a certificate of participation to boot. Moreover, we went home with a heightened appreciation of the many creative ways a simple cuppa could be crafted.

How far would you go for coffee?

What is your favourite coffee?

For me it’s white coffee! I am a huge fan of coffee so I drink all kinds of coffee but I am more biased towards any coffee with milk.

What about George Clooney? Clooney and Jean Dujardin (his Monuments Men co-star) favourite coffee are black!

In case you missed it, the video below shows how Clooney has more than met his match in Dujardin as he is outwitted in his quest for a Nespresso coffee. Watch the video it see how much they would go for coffee!

“I enjoy the humour behind these Nespresso campaigns and had great fun working with George Clooney on the set of this latest episode. I enjoy Nespresso coffee and took particular pleasure in drinking a Grand Cru destined for George!” – Jean Dujardin

Who do you wish to see appearing next? I am as curious as you!
