I am asking for two main things for Christmas this year…a new pair of Nike’s and Crio Brü. Two things I am addicted to.
Crio Brü combines America’s two favorite things….coffee and chocolate. This delicious coffee alternative is packed with more antioxidants than blueberries, and pomegranate juice! Made with 100% cocoa beans it has ZERO FAT, ZERO SUGAR, ZERO CHOLESTEROL, and ONLY 10 CALORIES per cup!
The first time I reviewed Crio Brü I said I was asking Santa for 3 flavors…well Christmas as come early! Crio Brü sent me 3 new-to-me flavors, 2 of which were on my wish list…Coca River, Maracaibo, and Mint!! I was so thrilled when this package came. I literally kissed the bags LOL! #sorry #notsorry I look forward to Crio Brü every morning. Sometimes I will even have a second cup in the afternoon because I can’t wait until the next day 🙂 I like it because not only does it taste good, it curbs my sweets cravings (which seem to grow by the day around the holidays) and gives me a gentle boost of energy.
First of the three is Coca River. With “flavor notes of green bananas and blackberries found naturally in premium cocoa beans from Ecuador” Coca River tastes great!! “The Ecuadorian cacao bean produces the chocolatiest Crio Brü. This smooth, sweet and nourishing drink is accented by a perfumed floral scent and lovely floral tones, including a dominant green banana note, blueberries and jasmine.” I like to sweeten this up with Cold Stone’s Sweet Cream creamer. I even like to brew it and then throw it in a blender with ice, coconut milk, and a scoop of vanilla protein for a chocolatey, sweet protein shake in the morning!
Next up is Maracaibo. This yummy variety of Crio Brü has “notes of vanilla and cherry and a caramelized nutty finish” in this Venezuelan cocoa beans. Another great variety from Crio Brü. Opening the bag I could smell the sweet caramel and chocolate scent. I like to brew this one up and serve it with caramel macchiato creamer. I need to run to the store and pick up some Girl Scout Cookie Samoa flavored creamer because that would pull out the caramel flavor as well as add coconut.
Last but not least, Mint! This winter must have is made from “refreshing, all-natural peppermint leaves blended with premium, chocolaty cocoa grounds.” Back in the day “Europeans began adding herbs and spices to concoct new and wondrous flavors. One of the best combinations was mint chocolate.” I agree! I love mint and chocolate together. This oh so awesome blend is like heaven in your mouth! With just a little Splenda added it tastes like a melts Thin Mint! I have a feeling this bag is going to disappear quickly!
After trying 5 flavors now, I haven’t met a cup I didn’t like. I have experimented with sugar, Splenda, coconut sugar, different flavored creamers, iced, hot, and blended. No matter what concoction I have come up with it tastes great! I recently went to my family’s cabin and didn’t bring my Crio Brü with me. I found that I was drinking 2 or 3 cups of hot chocolate a day…the really rich kind. That is an extra 150 calories, 3 grams of fat, and 23 grams of sugar a cup! 450 extra calories a day!? OIY! Now Crio Brü is only 10 calories a cup….I can handle an extra 30 calories! Next up on my wish list is Vega Reál…strawberry and citrus flavor notes!!! Sounds good, huh!?
