Is Wunder a new Smoothie Bar?
"Is Wunder a new Smoothie Bar?" – This is a question I heard many, many times last Wednesday. And for a good reason.
This week our Turku and Helsinki offices joined forces and set up a stand at Business Impact fair that was held at ICT-City in Turku. I often find most fairs a bit dull from an attendee point of view. All the company stands feel the same – there are the roll-ups, the branded candy.. or just any candy.. And of course the company leaflets. Nothing really stands out. At Wunder we are creating high quality experiences online so it only made sense to aim for creating an experience for offline as well!
We discussed the fair setup with my amazing colleague Anu. In the end, we opted for serving healthy carrot smoothies instead of dealing out traditional business flyers and candy. In my head, the reasoning for this was clear: the healthy drinks would offer the same health benefits as we are offering our clients in web environments. Or, put in a less cheesy way: we like taking care of our employee health, so why not offer a piece of that experience to our fair visitors as well.
As the smoothie we offered at the fair was quite a success, we decided to spread some love and share it with you as well. We chose a carrot & mango smoothie, spiced up with some ginger to offer a proper immunity boost in the early winter time.
WUNDER'S Carrot & Mango Smoothie
Yield: 2 portions
- 1 fresh mango / 5 dl diced (frozen) mango

- Peel and dice mango and carrot(s).

NB: If you don’t have a high speed blender, it might be a good idea to grate the carrots first to make the blending easier.
