Sit down, Relax & Have a Healthy “Mommy Moment” with the Bodum French Press and Ciro Brü Cocoa #giveaway

In the morning, or during the afternoon slump, or the evening (or whenever throughout the day) most moms sit down for a little mommy moment.  Those breaks often include a cup of tea, coffee, or other indulgent treat.  Why not sit down, relax and indulge in a drink that has amazing health benefits too?

Crio Brü is made from 100%, perfectly roasted cocoa beans.  No sugar, no chemicals, no gluten and no dairy.  Crio Brü gives you a product with sky-high antioxidants, abundant minerals and healthy energy.

By preparing your Crio Brü in a french press, you control the temperature and extraction time of the brew.  This means that you can have the perfect cup of hot liquid.  The 3-part stainless steel plunger has a fine mesh filter, which allows for the perfect extraction of Crio Brü’s aromatic oils and flavors.  A mesh filter allows this flavor to be delivered direct to your cup and not absorbed by a coffee maker paper filter.

My husband and I like to have a cup of coffee with dessert or to un-wind after the kids go to bed.  We had never tried anything through a french press before.  When we received the Bodum Brazil French Press we were excited to try something new.  After we had pressed the Crio Brü cocoa, we sat down to have a cup.  The chocolaty smell of the cocoa spread through the house.  I cannot drink coffee black.  I need to add some flavored creamer to take the bitter taste away.  However, I figured I should try the Crio Brü cocoa without the cream to get a 100% true taste of the drink.  Truth be told, I could actually drink it black – no cream added!  This is something I could NEVER do with regular coffee.

Nowadays, people are looking for foods that are rich in antioxidants.  By weight, raw cocoa beans have more antioxidants than almost any food in the world.  Not only is Crio Brü rich in antioxidants, there is ONLY 10 calories and 1.5 grams of carbohydrates in each 6 oz. cup.  NO grams fat, NO grams sugar, NO milligrams sodium   Now can you say THAT about your regular cup of joe?  Also cocoa is a natural appetite suppressant which is great to help with those afternoon or after supper munchies.

Because Crio Brü is roasted and brewed, it has the consistency, roasted flavour and complexity of coffee.  But because it is made with cocoa beans, its primary taste is chocolate.  The Crio Brü can also be brewed in any coffee maker as well, so even if you don’t have a french press you can still enjoy of cup of healthy cocoa.
