The coziest part of the winter season is the warm drinks you can sip on throughout the day. The ones that are approved that are listed in the guide book include herbal tea, green tea, and coffee. These are approved because there are little to no calories and you can drink them throughout the day which will help you not snack. Sipping on them between meals can also help you feel more full throughout the day, suppressing your appetite.
Warm Drinks – Our Top Picks
The first on our list of top picks is CRIO BRU which has many different flavors. A popular one is the Cavalla. If you would like to try some of their flavors they do have a sampler kit you can order.
Crio Brü is prepared in the same fashion as traditional coffee, but it’s made from cocoa. This opens up endless possibilities as you enjoy this artisan roasted cocoa. You can drink Crio Brü “black” with nothing added or you can experiment by adding your favorite creamer, sweetener and spices. A great sweetener that is approved on the diet is the Stevia or a dash of cinnamon, for example, is delicious in Cavalla. We also have several different flavors of Stevia that y0u can add to the Crio Bru as well and make different flavors. Crio Brü can be mixed with your favorite coffee grounds to make an incredible Crio Mocha. You can brew it in a standard auto-drip machine with a permanent gold filter or in a French Press. To brew a stronger Crio Brü, think hotter and longer. Set your auto-drip to brew slowly or brew it longer in a French Press with boiling water.
