Iced Crio Bru and Other Clean Simple Eats Approved Drink Ideas
Boring drinks? Not our style. As much as I recommend drinking half your body weight in ounces of water each day of the challenge, I understand it’s fun to mix it up. Here are a few of our favorite CSE approved drinks
Iced Crio Brew
80 calories / 10C / 4F / 1P
1/2 cup Crio Bru Concentrate (recipe below) or brewed coffee
1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 Tbs. canned full-fat coconut milk (shake before using)
2 tsp. organic coconut sugar
1. Shake Crio Concentrate. Add all ingredients to a jar and shake until sugar is dissolved.
2. Pour into a glass full of ice. Enjoy cold with a straw 😍
Note - because I know you’re going to ask “can I add creamer?” and the answer is “YES! If you take into account those extra calories and macros into your daily calorie total.”
4 cups water
1 cup Crio Bru grounds
1. Add to a saucepan and bring to a light boil. Simmer for ten minutes. Stir and simmer an additional two minutes.
2. Let cool slightly then drain the grounds by running it through a coffee filter, strainer or using a French press. Pour the liquid into an airtight container and store in the fridge. Throw out the leftover grounds. It should make about 24 ounces of Crio Bru Concentrate.
*When choosing a beverage, avoid drinks that contain artificial sweeteners and flavors or high sugar and calorie content.
