Pumpkin Spice Crio Bru

Pressure Cooker Crio Bru - a delicious and healthy alternative to sugary hot chocolate and addicting coffee.

Love winter with a cup of warm, chocolatey pumpkin goodness, made quick and easy in an electric pressure cooker!


  • ½ cup Crio Bru Ground Cocoa Beans, pumpkin spice flavor
  • 6 cups water
  • 2 cups milk (I use unsweetened vanilla almond milk)
  • ½ cup pure maple syrup
  • ½ cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Spiced Whipped Cream
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla


  1. Add Crio Bru, water, milk, syrup, pumpkin puree, cinnamon, and vanilla to the pressure cooker pot. Secure the lid and turn pressure release knob to a sealed position. Cook at high pressure for 5 minutes.
  2. While Crio Bru is brewing, whip all of the whipped cream ingredients with a high speed blender or hand mixer until thick. Store in the fridge until ready to use.
  3. When cooking is complete, use a natural pressure release for 10 minutes and then release any remaining pressure.
  4. Place a fine mesh sieve over a bowl and pour Crio Bru through the sieve to filter out the grounds (this also works well in a nut milk bag).
  5. Serve immediately with a dollop of spiced whipped cream. Can also be stored in the refrigerator in a mason jar. Enjoy cold or pour into a microwave safe mug and warm for 1-2 minutes.
