New Giveaway: A Pure Cacao Drink From Choffy!

by Anjali @ The Picky Eater on January 22, 2012

Hi Everyone! I hope you’re having a great weekend. I have an awesome new giveaway for you today, but first – I’d like to congratulate Jenny who won my eco-friendly giveaway!

Congrats Jenny! You should be receiving your Bamboo Bottle and book very soon πŸ™‚ Thanks to everyone who entered – it was so nice reading all of your comments and hearing from some first-time readers! And now, all of you have another chance to win in this week’s giveaway from CHOFFY!

So what exactly is Choffy? Choffy is brewed, pure, all-natural, chocolate. It is made from 100% premium organic cacao beans – so it’s not sweet at all – it tastes more like a delicious super dark chocolate bar. And since Choffy comes straight from the cacao bean, it’s extremely good for you! The cacao makes it a superfood: there are more antioxidants in one 8oz cup of Choffy than in two servings of blueberries. And while it tastes like chocolate, it’s only 20 calories per serving, which makes it a guilt-free pleasure.

The cool thing about Choffy is that you can make it using a french press, just like you would with regular coffee. But unlike coffee, it doesn’t have caffeine in it! So you can get your rich-hot-drink-in-the-morning fix without the effects of caffeine. For those of you trying to cut back on your coffee fix, this might be a good replacement πŸ™‚

There are also tons of different ways to enjoy Choffy – here are three that I tried:

Option 1:Β You can drink it black just like coffee (although, keep in mind that since it is cacao, it will be slightly bitter) – I actually thought it was pretty smooth when I took a sip straight, but I decided to add a bit of milk to make it even more decadent!

Option 2: Mix a 1/8 cup of 1% organic milk and some Stevia to taste into your Choffy. This is how I chose to drink it, and it tasted like an amazingly decadent hot chocolate. It was like liquid chocolate melting in my mouth. I couldn’t believe it was only 20-30 calories (with the milk).

Option 3: Use it in a blended chocolate drink by brewing Choffy, mixing it with milk and Stevia, adding ice cubes, and blending until combined

All were amazingly delicious. This is really a fantastic hot drink, and it is SO good for you. This has made it into my morning hot drink rotation, which was previously exclusively occupied by Chai Tea πŸ™‚

For those of you who are thinking of trying this product, here’s a nice little graphic describing how to brew Choffy:

And for one lucky reader, you’ll win a bag of Choffy to try at home for free! The bag is HUGE, so it will last you quite a while.

Um, quick question – is this for US residents only. Coz that would break my heart.

Great resolution! I’m trying to do that as well – and this drink makes an excellent hot chocolate. It reminded me of those chocolat drinks you get in Europe, but much much healthier for you!

Anjali @ The Picky Eater January 23, 2012 at 11:08 am

Hot chocolate is a weakness of mine too, but I agree it is too sweet when made in the traditional way!
