There’s a new spot to grab a quick and healthy bite in downtown Calgary.

Oakberry, a Brazil-based company with more than 600 locations across 40 countries, specializes in açai bowls and smoothies with fresh fruit and toppings. Calgarians can experience these items for themselves at the brand’s first Alberta location in the Brookfield Place courtyard, which will run as a pop-up until the end of September.

Oakberry makes its açai smoothie and bowl base, which is vegan, lactose-free and gluten-free, with açai pulp from Amazonian açai trees. Another highlight of Oakberry’s bowls and smoothies is that they’re customizable. For the bowls, there are more than 15 unlimited topping options you can add to your order, including granola, cacao nibs, a range of fruits, peanut butter crumbs, chia pudding, almonds and more. Meanwhile, the smoothies come with your choice of three toppings ranging from granola, to honey, to peanut butter.

If you’re looking for an extra boost, both the smoothies and bowls can be made with almond or cashew butter, whey or vegan protein, or matcha powder for an extra charge.

And the Brookfield Place pop-up is just the start for Oakberry in Calgary; Later this summer, the company will be opening two permanent locations at The District at Beltline and on 17 Avenue S.W., so stay tuned for more developments.
