I have some exciting news to share! I have become an affiliate with Crio Brü. I love their product so much, I can’t help but recommend it to everyone and let you in on the deliciousness!
But first, what is Crio Brü brewed cocoa?
Crio Brü is a brewed drink made from 100% roasted and ground cacao beans! It is 100% natural and 100% pure.
Crio Brü is the ultimate superfood. It is low in calories and contains no sugar, no fat, no dairy, no sodium, no cholesterol and practically no caffeine, yet is extremely high in antioxidants, theobromine and a host of other vitamins and minerals.
It comes in different flavours, each with a unique taste. I love them all, but Vega Real is my favourite. It tastes like a hot chocolate, but with more complex and richer flavours and without being sickly sweet.
Everyone in the family loves it too and I am in trouble if I run out. It’s actually a chocolate drink I feel more than happy about my kids having.
How do you use it?
You can brew your Crio Bru in a plunger (or French press), in a drip coffee maker, in your thermomix or just simmer on the stove top and then strain. You can add milk and sweetener if you like. I like it with some rice milk and a tablespoon of coconut oil – I find I don’t need a sweetener. You can drink it hot or cold.
But wait, don’t throw away the grounds! You can use them in loads of different recipes. I freeze them until I am ready to use them.
You can make a really nice Crio Concentrate and keep it in the fridge to use in iced chocolate or over icecream.
You can also use the grounds as a lovely body scrub. I add them to a small handful of coconut oil. Sublime!
Is it good for me?
You may have heard that chocolate is full of antioxidants and you are right! But, when you eat chocolate with it’s added sugar and with all the processing, you add those negative elements. Crio Brü is pure cacoa, so you get all the benefits, without worrying about additives.
No chemicals are used in the processing – it’s just pure cacao beans.
It makes a perfect substitute for coffee, so if you are wanting to cut down or give up, replace it with some Crio ! You can even combine it with your ground coffee and make a mocha. Crio Bru is also a fantastic and yummy cure for chocolate or sweet cravings.
Many people are reporting huge health benefits, including weight loss. Dr Oz even recommends it. “This is a really cool idea. I think this is something really worth trying. Here’s what I love about it. It’s why it can help you burn fat faster. It has a natural stimulant, not caffeine, called theobromine that can boost your metabolism. It’s very safe. It also has a fat blocker. It helps get rid of the fat in your body by blocking an enzyme you need to digest fat, so you never absorb the fat into your body.” – Dr. Oz
In fact, I am going to test this theory as I would like to lose about 10 kilograms (that’s a whole other blog post!), so I am going to make sure I have a daily Crio Brü with a tablespoon of coconut oil. I do find when I have it around 3pm, it is an incredible pick me up and my appetite is satisfied until dinner time.
