Crio BRU COFFEE ALTERNATIVE

May 21, 2019 No Comments

Recently I was gifted some products from my lovely friends over at Crio Brü and since I’ve had them for over a week now, I’ve had a chance to really try them and their benefits.

What is Crio Brü? They are a company that sells coffee alternatives made from 100% roasted cocoa beans. There is no sugar, no gluten, no dairy and no fillers in their products and it’s filled to the brim with anti-oxidants, minerals and energy. Crio Brü have stated that their products contain “a natural stimulant called theobromine which is gentle, long-lasting and non-addictive.”

I was lucky enough to choose some of the products I wanted to try, and of course, I headed straight for the Lunar Latte and the Velvet Latte. Duh. Who doesn’t want pink or purple drinks? These two are absolutely phenomenal and I can’t recommend these two products enough.

The Lunar Latte is made up of chamomile, lavender, passionflower, purple carrots and Reishi mushroom – it definitely sounds like an odd combination, but these ingredients mixed together create the perfect pre bed drink to get you into that sleepy state. Personally, I suffer from insomnia and restlessness, especially at night time, and after trying this for a week, I can definitely say that this has helped put my mind at ease before bed and help me sleep.

Did you know that the Lunar Latte gets it’s purple colour from the anthocyanins (antioxidants) found in the purple carrot?

Velvet Latte is made up of beetroot, turmeric, ginger, cinnamon, cayenne pepper, black pepper and whilst the peppers may make you turn your head and not want to try it… all I can say is, it doesn’t taste like pepper and it’s really delicious. I was a bit hesitant with this one when I read all the ingredients, but once I tasted it, a chai flavour erupted in my mouth and I was in heaven. Now, this one is packed full of goodness, the web page for the Velvet Latte states that “Beetroot is brilliant for detoxification, boosting energy and stamina, and lowering blood pressure. Beets are high in immune-boosting vitamin C, fiber, and essential minerals like potassium (vital for healthy nerve and muscle function) and manganese (which is good for your bones, liver, kidneys, and pancreas). Beets also contain the B vitamin folate.”

Along with the superfood lattes, I was given one of their main products, the Cavalla – and it literally tastes like chocolate goodness; but healthy. Who would have thought that chocolate can be healthy? It has hints of coconut and cinnamon, but they are very subtle. Honestly, I hate coconut, and I couldn’t even taste it – bonus! This was delicious with a dash of milk and some biscuits.

One product I was given, I had heard about and seen in my local shops – Rooibos tea. I’d heard that this product was great for vitamin c and anti-oxidants, so when I received the Red Espresso, I was excited to try this as it was always something I was hesitant to try. This one, I have definitely had more than once and it’s also my partners favourite out of everything I was gifted, so it’s nearly all finished. Surprisingly, it has 5x more anti-oxidants than green tea and it has no additives, no GMOs, no caffeine and no sugar – that is amazing for myself as I don’t do well with caffeine, sugar and I need all the anti-oxidants I can get.

Lastly, the Pumpkin Spice which was definitely not what I was expecting! I didn’t think I would like it, but I was pleasantly surprised as I tasted spicy hints, almost like a chai latte. This product is described as “rich, warm, all-natural cinnamon, nutmeg and cloves blended with premium, chocolaty cocoa grounds” – which is definitely correct!

Overall, I’m super happy with all of these products, and I will definitely be ordering more when I run out of my favourites in the future – and I’m also keen to try out some of the other products, like the other superfood lattes. I just can’t resist those pretty colours.

I was lucky to be given a promotion code to use for the rest of May – so if you wan’t to head over and buy something (they sell samples, too), then don’t forget to chuck in code “BO10” for 10% off your order – I do not receive anything in return or gain commission if you use this code, it’s purely because I love these products and want to share it with my followers.

  • Being a bigger gal, I found it really daunting to self tan in fear that it would highlight all of my cellulite and skin blemishes... I had a fear that it would make my skin look terrible and I would look bigger than I actually was 🥺

I went from being paranoid and never self tanning, to being in love with a self tanning brand called @tantootie - their formula is absolutely incredible. Because it comes in one shade, and how the formula is made... YOU get to decide how dark you want to be, and the best part is, it suits all skin tones.

I am incredibly pale, and when I say that, I mean it. My skin reflects off of the sun and blinds you 😂 But this tan actually compliments my skin and all I do is leave it on an hour, wash it off, and it looks like I have a nice sun kissed glow 😍

Thank you #tantootie for being an amazing Australian brand!
  • The face I make when I see hot cross buns available in shops... 😍

Let’s remind ourselves that just because it’s a new year, doesn’t mean it has to be a “new you”. Changing your physical appearance will not mend your mental scars and being thin will not make you happy. So go and eat all the hot cross buns you want and live fearlessly ❤️ Swimmers: @kmartaus

  • The truth is, the concept of the perfect body is bogus. No body is perfect. The media and the majority of society has been pushing the concept of a perfect body and ingraining it into our minds from a young age.

I’m going to straight up tell you, that it’s bullsh*t. The body you have right now, the one that’s done so much for you... it’s wonderful the way it is.

Your weight, your appearance do not make you who you are. It also doesn’t change the fact that you are a human being and you deserve respect, regardless of what you look like 👏🏻 I’m urging you to challenge your inner thinking’s and let yourself be YOU. Unapologetically you. Don’t let society tell you that you aren’t good enough because you aren’t a tiny size or you don’t have certain coloured hair or eyes.

Show up as yourself and be free. I believe in you ❤️ Bathers: @kmartaus
  • Don’t forget to take some time for yourself after this xmas period. It’s such a taxing time... physically and mentally.

It’s important to look after yourself. Go do something for you!

  • Women need to stick together. Lift each other up. Be supportive of all other women.

When did it become popular to pick on other women and tear them down? I’m not sure, but it needs to end.

How are we meant to push past negative ideals surrounding women if we don’t stick together?

Grab your ladies and be kind to one another. The world will be a better place ✌🏻
  • We shouldn’t need to or have to minimise ourselves to fit into a society that struggles to accept people as human beings.

Don’t let yourself be viewed as tiny. Stand up tall and be proud of yourself. You can do it ❤️
