Unless you have been under a big rock, you will know by now that my new health food of choice is something called Crio Bru and so naturally my little brain keeps ticking over ideas with which to use this superfood.
Can we just take a moment? I am feeling so great from drinking Crio Bru that I have to become a little evangelical about it right now and let you know about the happy side effects of drinking chocolate! (I know, its tough, but someone has to do it!)
I have more energy than ever, I feel extremely healthy and have seemingly avoided several nasty bugs that have been doing the rounds, I am sleeping like a baby, I have a feel good mind set all the time, I have lost weight and overall feel fab-you-lahs dah-ling.
Now that we have that all out of the way; back to our regularly scheduled programming. So ways to get your kids to get the health benefits of this, as it does have the taste of very dark and bitter chocolate, which isn't normally something kids would be dying to drink without adding untold sweetners…this recipe does have sugar, but by the time you have added milk, ice, whatever, of choice, you will find that it is fairly low in sugar. Less than in fruit juice in fact.
Here's hoping the little darlings like it!

Return strained Bru to the Thermomix bowl and add remaining ingredients. Cook 5 min/100ºC/speed 2.
Serve with icy cold milk of choice, over ice cream, in any recipe that requires chocolate syrup, or as a Crio Bru Concentrate to which you simply add boiling water, steamed milk etc of choice to enjoy when in a hurry.
