I’ve been experimenting with different morning drinks and right now I’m super into Crio Bru cacao tea.
Crio Bru is made of ground and roasted cacao nibs - it’s virtually caffeine free and less acidic than coffee or cacao powder (since you steep it like a loose leaf tea). I love that Crio Bru comes in a handful of different roasts similar to coffee. I like them all, but the Limited Edition Tanzania blend is my current favorite.
I reguarly drink Crio Bru as I would loose leaf tea: simply steep, strain and drink. But if you’re looking for a creamier, richer cup, this is the way to go. When blended up with superfoods and adaptogenic herbs the cacao tea turns into a powerful potion that gives me a natural boost of energy and none of the tummy troubles I often experience with coffee.
Cacao Tea Latte
1 mug brewed Crio Bru cacao tea
1 scoop collagen powder
1 tbsp coconut butter (you can also swap in splash nondairy milk if you don’t have or like coconut butter)
1/2 tsp pure vanilla
Dash sea salt
Brew your Crio Bru tea according to the package instructions (you can use a French press or loose leaf tea strainer).
Add all ingredients to your high speed blender and blend on high for about 30 seconds (until frothy).
Pour into a mug and enjoy!
