Instant Pot Crio Bru with a citrusy orange twist!


  • 14 oz can lite coconut milk (may substitute with 1 3/4 cup of coconut milk from the carton for a lighter version)
  • 2 ¼ cup water
  • Zest and juice of 2 medium size oranges
  • 24 tablespoons pure maple syrup
  • ¼ cup Crio Bru grounds
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Orange Scented Whipped Cream – Optional but delicious

  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 12 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • Zest of 1 orange


  1. Put all of the ingredients in the pressure cooker pot.
  2. Secure the lid and turn pressure release knob to a sealed position.
  3. Cook at high pressure for 5 minutes
  4. When cooking is complete, use a natural release for 10 minutes, then release any remaining pressure.
  5. 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.
  6. Serve immediately with Orange Scented Whipped Cream if desired.
  7. Store cooled leftovers in mason jars in the fridge.  It tastes delicious cold or warmed up in the microwave for 1 – 2 minutes

Orange Scented Whipped Cream

  1. Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and use a hand mixer to beat until it reaches your desired thickness.  I like mine a bit on the thin side.


  • A fine mesh sieve is important here so you don’t end up with a gritty beverage  
  • This can be easily doubled and stored in the fridge.  When you want a cup, simply microwave it for about 2 minutes
