Crio Bru — is not coffee, it’s cacao
If you have followed close along for the last several months on Instagram then you would know how obsessed I’ve become with drinking Crio Bru and today I want to share everything you need to know about this cacao drink. What it is, how I make an iced cup, the benefits to drinking it, all the ingredients used, and most importantly, Everything You Need to Make Iced Crio Bru. Because trust me, this isn’t the last time you will hear me talking about it. My secret goal is to get everyone I know to drink Crio Bru with me ūüôā Is that too much to ask? Let me know if you need more convincing — I’m happy to keep convincing you!

It all started earlier this summer when my friend Whitney brought me my first Crio Bru drink on my birthday as a gift. (Hands down my favorite gift I’ve been given) I couldn’t stop thinking about the delicious dark chocolate flavored drink. She had known I wanted to try it, after she talked about her obsession of the drink for several months (maybe years) — it truly was love at first sip ūüôā I texted my friend that next week and told her to share everything she used to create what I feel is “the perfect cup of iced Crio Bru”

So, What is Crio Bru?

Roasted, ground, and brewed just like coffee, Crio Bru Brewed Cacao has the amazing flavor and aroma of pure dark chocolate.

 

Benefits of Crio Bru brewed Cacao

Superfood Packed With Nutrients

Cacao is packed with nutrients like antioxidants to boost your immune system and magnesium to support bone, brain, and heart health. While low in carbs and calories, Cacao also acts as a natural appetite suppressant. Best of all, cacao is loaded with natural mood enhancers that can help you feel great, increase focus, reduce stress, and sleep better.

 

Does it contain Caffeine?

Honest Energy
Brewed cacao is 99.9% caffeine free, but contains theobromine, a naturally occurring stimulant found in cacao that can be longer lasting, milder, and more pleasant than caffeine.

MAKE YOUR OWN CUP OF ICED CRIO BRU AT HOME

This recipe is a bit of a process to start, but then it’s easy to throw together for the rest of the week and make a quick cup for the day.
First you’ve gotta make your Crio Concentrate
(Crio Bru can also be made in a coffee maker)

 

CRIO CONCENTRATE:
5 cups water
1 1/2 cup Crio Bru grounds depending on how strong you like it – My personal favorite is Ghana Flavor

DIRECTIONS:
1. Add to a saucepan and bring to a light boil.
2. Simmer stirring every so often for 20 minutes. Keep lid on.
3. Let cool another 20 minutes (or more) and then drain the grounds using a French press. Toss out leftovers
4. Then refrigerate in an airtight jar or container. (I use the large mason jar) Makes about 16 oz. of concentrate.

 

ICED CRIO BRU INGREDIENTS: 

1/2 cup Crio Concentrate
1/2 cup milk (whole milk or almond, coconut milk, cashew) – My personal favorite is Almond Milk with 30 calories
1-2 Tbs. canned coconut milk (Shake up the can, pour it into an airtight container and store in my fridge to use throughout the week or two)
1-4 tsp. Coconut Palm sugar
1-3 dropper full French vanilla stevia drops or 1 packet of French Vanilla Stevia.
1/2 cup Ice – or as much as you want

DIRECTIONS:
1. Shake Crio Concentrate then pour into glass tumbler.
2. Add all ingredients to Crio Concentrate and stir together until sugar is dissolved.
3. Enjoy cold with a straw.

You can also make Crio Bru warm. Just leave out the ice and warm up in the microwave.
