Leaner Creamer is a healthier alternative to Coffee Mate, but does it work? Read on...

Perhaps you have heard the marketing slogan "Drink coffee and lose weight." This is a bold claim from the makers of Leaner Creamer, a coconut oil-based, lightly flavored powder coffee creamer.

In addition to creamer, the company sells three pre-ground coffee blends, in light,medium, and dark roasts.

For this review, Leaner Creamer sent me one box of original flavor creamer packets, and the medium and dark roast coffees.

The Creamer

I like a strong cup of coffee, and generally use a little fat free half and half until my coffee is a medium brown color. With Leaner Creamer, I started with one packet, but that wasn't enough. I needed two, and the vanilla flavor was so slight that I still needed sweetener. At $19.95/20 oz. bottle, this could get quite expensive.

I generally eat a lot of fiber and good fat, so I didn't notice the fullness effect as much. And like all powdered fats, the beverage must be warm. No iced coffee!

Leaner Creamer is a delicious addition to your morning java that suppresses appetite and promotes weight loss with its coconut oil based infused with its proprietary all-natural blend of Citrus Aurantium Extract, Hoodia and Green Tea Extract. Our all-natural and non-dairy powder coffee creamer is made with the perfect hint of vanilla that will keep you coming back for more.

The Coffee

The coffee was great! Both roasts were flavorful and not bitter. I only wish that the coffee came whole bean, so I could do a coarse grind for my French press. And at only $9.95/12 oz. bag, it is great coffee at a great price!

All in all, the Leaner Creamer products are great. They offer great coffee and a healthy alternative to the chemical-filled powder creamers I grew up with.
