Perfect Pastel Porridge with Arctic Power Berries

Recipes, Reviews
This post is in collaboration with Arctic Power Berries

On Thursday night I arrived home from work to a cute little box wrapped in string with the Arctic Power Berries sticker on. I couldn’t wait to unwrap it and look at what the lovely Eve and Anna had sent me to try. My patience was really tested to the max when I told myself I had to wait until morning to open it so that I could capture everything for you guys!

So who are Arctic Power Berries?

‘Two best friends from the Arctic Circle travelled the world missing the taste of wild berries from back home. Now it’s tome for the berries to do some travelling too. One serving (1-2 teaspoons) is equal to a handful of fresh berries, ONE OF YOUR FIVE A DAY! We’ve used over 700g of fresh berries in one 70g tube.’

There are four flavours to choose from :

  • Cranberry
  • Lingonberry
  • Blackcurrant
  • Blueberry

Here is a little more information on Arctic Power Berries:

  • No added sugar
  • Non GMO
  • No preservatives
  • Vegan
  • No added flavouring
  • Gluten Free
  • Raw (dried below 40 Degrees C)

How can I use these berry powders?

What is perfect about these powders is that they come in 30g and 70g resealable tubes with a 2 year shelf life (not that they’ll last that long!’ So you can come back to them whenever you want a berry burst. They are delicious swirled into porridge, on yoghurt and granola, sprinkled into a smoothie or popped into your favourite cakes and bakes! They taste just like the real thing, because thats essentially what they are. They are dried berries with no added sugar or flavourings so they are a concentrated source of vitamins, antioxidants, fibre and nutrients ( as well as making your food look pretty!)

How did I use my berry powders?

On Friday as soon as I woke up I dived straight into my parcel to see what Eve and Anna had sent me to try. I had (alongside a lovely message):

  • 30g Cranberry Tube
  • 30g Blackcurrant Tube
  • 70g Blueberry Tube
  • 70g Lingonberry Tube
  • Five 3g Blackcurrant Sachets

 I was like a child in a candy store and wanted to try everything but I chose to start with the Blackcurrant. I swirled into my protein porridge to make the most perfect pastel porridge.

So that is how I first chose to use my powders. I already have so many other ideas of how I want to use my berry powders! Up next I’ll be making Macro friendly Apple and Blueberry Crumble with my blueberry powder. So keep your eyes peeled for that one!
