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.

  • I used to hate wearing bodysuits. I have a weird hip dip that makes my stomach/hips look like a donut. I was also self conscious about that part of my body because it made wearing certain clothes hard to wear... it didn’t look cute 🤷🏻‍♀️but I have definitely learned in the past year that I can definitely wear what I want and that I should wear what I want. My partner loves me and gives me endless compliments so it makes my self love journey a lot easier 💜

  • Cute lunch with my boo at @carlsjr 👀
  • A tan for EVERY BODY 🥰 I recently partnered up with @tantootie because I absolutely adore their products. They’re such an inclusive brand and of course, the products are amazing 👏🏻 I had never used self tan before I purchased my first bottle of tan from Tan Tootie - I was always too scared because I am SUPER PALE 😂 but I bit the bullet and messaged #tantootie on Instagram and asked them SO many questions, and you know what? Every single one of them was answered! Even now I still ask random questions and the knowledge that the lovely people behind Tan Tootie have is outstanding 🥰

I cannot recommend this brand enough - their tan is cruelty free, toxins and parabens free and they’re organic and natural.

Bonus? It’s fast drying AND I slept in brand new white sheets that night and it DIDNT TRANSFER 👏🏻 They also have this super cute product called “Tan Tootie for your booty” and it’s the coolest thing ever 😂

I have a discount code “TTBO15” for 15% off your order - I do not receive any compensation for this code being used, I asked for a code because I want to share this awesome product 🥰
