Freshii is on a mission to make healthy food affordable and convenient. It started with a shop in Toronto, Canada and less than 10 years later it has branches in more than 75 cities in 15 countries. I had my first Freshii experience in February 2016.
This was because Freshii opened their first restaurant in the Netherlands. In Rotterdam, at the Korte Lijnbaan, near the central train station to be more precise.
They invited me for a food tasting with other food bloggers to try out several of the items on their menu. As you probably know: healthy food is my middle name, so I didn’t have to think twice! I’ve tried their juices, smoothies, salads, burritos, soup and frozen yoghurt.
Freshii has a menu with items that you can choose from. It’s all healthy and fresh! They’ve got many vegetarian, vegan and gluten free options.
I’ve tried the Market Salad (pictured above) with quinoa, spinach, avocado and cranberries. The people who follow me on Instagram know that I love avocado, so this salad was a winner for me.
I’ve tried two different burrito’s. The spicy Thai with quinoa, edamame and cilantro was a combination of fresh and a bit spicy. The Smokehouse burrito is great for lovers of Mexican food since it contained a nice combination of black beans, corn and cheddar cheese.
Freshii is a heaven for vegetarians, vegans or people with dietary restrictions since you can also choose a category and then add the ingredients of your choice. You can choose a salad, wrap, bowl or soup and add toppings of your choice, like tofu, falafel, almonds or spinach.
I ended my food tasting with frozen yogurt dessert. Freshii uses low-fat yogurt for their frozen yogurt and you can choose your own toppings like strawberries, blueberries, almonds and oreo cookie crumbs.
Their smoothies (pictured below) are also made with low-fat frozen yogurt. The Freshii Green is made with spinach and avocado and the Powerhouse almost tastes like a cocktail with coconut, mint and pineapple.
