Ground roasted cocoa beans layered all pretty like in a jar for the perfect Christmas Gift



For a pint size Mason jar

  • 1 cup Crio Bru – any flavor
  • 1 cup white sugar (can substitute with coconut sugar)

To be added later

  • 12 cups water
  • 4 cups Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk


For the Mason Jar

  1. Layer ingredients in a Mason jar in the following order: 1/2 cup Crio Bru, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup Crio Bru, 1/2 cup sugar.
  2. Top it with a lid and be careful not to shake it up if you want the layered look.

Include the following directions with the jar

  1. Add contents of jar to pressure cooker pot.  Add 12 cups water and 4 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk.   Secure the lid and turn pressure release knob to a sealed position.  Cook at high pressure for 5 minutes.
  2. When cooking is complete, use a natural release for 10 minutes and then release any remaining pressure.
  3. Place a fine mesh sieve over a bowl and pour Crio Bru through the sieve to filter out the grounds.  Be careful!  The Crio Bru will be VERY hot.
  4. Serve immediately or pour into 4 quart size mason jars, top with a lid and store in the refrigerator.  Enjoy cold or pour into a microwave safe mug and warm for 1-2 minutes.
