CRIO BRU – My New Hot Cocoa Love!!!

CRIO BRU – My New Hot Cocoa Love!!!

I'm a big fan of Crio Bru! If you haven't heard of it, let me in on a delicious little secret... It's a form of hot chocolate that is made from roasted ground cacao beans from different parts of the world that have robust flavors and subtle aromas to die for! 

It comes in several flavors, however, my favorite it Ghana French Roast & Venezuela Medium Roast (I mix them together in my French Press). Each flavor of cocoa is harvested from the name noted on the packaging--there are 8 flavor varieties to choose from--each has a subtle unique taste. Ghana French Roast is their most full-bodied flavor, which I adore!

You can drink it straight (like I do) or add creamer and a sweetener. My family prefers it with vanilla (unsweetened) almond milk and stevia.  

What is Crio Bru?

You may be wondering what Crio Bru is… Crio Bru is an all-natural drink make from cacao beans from around the world, roasted and ground to perfection. It can be made in a coffee machine, or in a French press (like this one), which is best to use to get all the yummy complex chocolatey flavors the beans have to offer.

I LOVE hot chocolate, especially this time of year, but NOT all the yucky ingredients that typically goes along with it. I don’t eat (or drink) sugar, and I don’t like all the nasty preservatives or added fats in my hot chocolate. Thankfully, my dear friend introduced me to my new hot chocolate love, Crio Bru!

Health Benefits of Crio Bru

Did you know that straight cocoa is incredibly healthy for you? Crio Bru (in all flavors) is loaded with antioxidants? In fact, this true superfood has more antioxidants than blueberries—40 times more to be exact and it’s loaded with iron and has more calcium than cow’s milk!

It also has natural mood elevating benefits. When I drink it, I seriously feel cheerier, more carefree and upbeat! A cup of this delicious bru has proven happiness chemicals - dopamine, anandamide and phenylethylamine and serotonin, which helps wards off depression, anxiety, and worry.

It will also boost your energy—naturally—without the nasty side effects of caffeine. The fabulous property that increases energy is from theobromine. A fabulous compound that provides a mild, long-lasting energy boost and mental focus and clarity. It will make you feel good along with steady energy without the unwanted crashing side effects that stimulants have.

To top it off—included in the long list of wonderful health benefits—it promotes weight loss! It will actually help curb your appetite AND it blocks fat—who doesn’t want that! It’s an excellent aid to help you lose weight and help control your appetite. It’s a healthy way to shed weight while feeling better and more invigorated throughout the day.


I always look forward to starting my day off with a yummy hot cup (or two) of Crio Bru. My family also drinks it, which does my heart good knowing my children and hubby are also getting a high daily dose of antioxidants to help ward off colds and flu bugs that are going around this time of year.

If you drink it too and enjoy the marvelous health benefits of doing so, please comment and share which flavor you enjoy best below. We'd love to hear from you!
