Welcome to My Product Review on Crio Brü Brewed Cocoa! Choose to feel good everyday!
(Crio looks out for the environment in insuring its cocoa is 100% responsibly grown and ethically traded. They buy organic beans whenever possible. And always pay fair trade prices or better for all their cocoa beans, which improves the lives of our farmers and their communities.)
We loved trying Crio Brü and here's why you will too!
It was as easy to prepare as coffee. In fact you make it exactly like coffee. So when we finished our supper and served dessert it was ready to serve! A full coffee pot full of delicious cocoa in minutes. (Crio Brü can be made in any coffee maker or French Press. Use 1 to 2 tablespoons of grounds per 6 oz. of hot water to taste.)
For the adult crowd, we sampled the Maya blend which is a fiery mix of cayenne pepper with warm vibrant cinnamon and soothing ground vanilla beans blended with premium, chocolaty cocoa grounds. Perfect for warming up with on a frosty winter day. We found children liked the Cavalla blend which is made from cocoa beans found naturally the Ivory Coast. Its chocolaty flavor hints notes of coconut as well as cinnamon.
We first sipped the cocoas without adding anything. They have a deep rich flavor, much like a dark chocolate bar. Many of our table guests found they enjoyed it untouched, and served black like coffee. While others found the flavors much more soothing and familiar to traditional hot chocolates when milk and sugar were added.
Everyone who knows me, knows I strive to serve the healthiest foods possible to my family and everyone deserves a sweet treat now and again. I could feel good and guilt free about serving this to my family for a number of reasons:
. Did you know cocoa beans are one of nature's Super foods? They are full of antioxidants, minerals, and health promoting properties?
. The antioxidants found in cocoa boost your immune system.
. unlike others hot drinks, this product contains NO CAFFEINE, instead it increases energy naturally with a natural stimulant called Theobromine.
. It curbs your appetite in helping to lose weight.
. The natural magnesium found in cocoa supports heart, brain and bone health.
. The chromium and zinc it contains helps maintain healthy blood sugar levels!
For the Maya of Central America, ka’kao was the drink of the gods. Served to kings in golden cups and prepared each day by the Mayans, Aztecs, Olmecs and Incas, the ancients knew of its power to rejuvenate and restore. The original recipe was simple – ground cocoa beans and water.
