The berries used in Bär Bar are: bilberries (wild blueberries), lingonberries, sea buckthorn, strawberries, raspberries, gooseberries, red currants and black currants. The smoothies I designed for Bär Bar are of course filled with these amazing vitamin boosts. Here are the vegan, gluten-free smoothie bowls I designed:
♥ Berry Forest bowl is filled with berry energy, as it contains four different kinds of berries.
♥ Caramel Dream bowl is a classic Nordic combo of lingonberries and caramel. The tart berries combined with sweet caramel is really a dream.
♥ Super bowl is a smoothie, which would be a perfect lunch! I designed it so that it contains healthy fats (such as avocado), vitamin C rich seabuckthorn and even a veggie: carrot. The flavor is mildly sweet and creamy.
I got to know Bär Bar owner couple Jasmiina ja Pete during my smoothie recipe design process. Their positivity and berry enthusiasm is contagious 🙂 Here’s a little interview I did with Jasmiina about the Bär Bar concept and entrepreneurship:
Bär Bar is a snack bar focusing on Finnish berries. The first of its kind. Our mission is to bring Finnish berries into the every day life of busy people in a fun and delicious way. First in Finland, then in other countries too.
