Would you like to get a fresh juice (sappi)? We can usually use it very much during our working days. Sappi makes her juices, smoothies, coffee, salads and sandwiches fresh and with healthy ingredients, so you can get a strong energy boost.
Sappi, the new juice bar on the Binnenwegplein in Rotterdam. The juice bar is not brand new, because one and a half month ago, this juice bar was a franchise with the name Smoothie Company. In March, the power women and owners Boukje and Susanna thought it would be nice to invent a new, refreshing name: Sappi. We were wondering how they chose this name. Boukje: “That’s very simple. Our visitors came to us during their breaks, after work or the gym. We noticed that they usually gave a juice or smoothie the name ‘sappie’. Because we wanted to give our juice bar a new name, we called it ‘Sappi’, without the letter e.”
Besides the fact that the Smoothie Company is called Sappi nowadays, the menu got a new, refreshing twist too. They have new smoothies classified in fruits, greens and sports. I chose the fruity blueberry açai, the sporty nutty banana and the sappi of the month with pineapple, mango and peach. Do you need some (extra) protein, raw cacao, oatmeal or cocos milk in your smoothie? Or some lemon or ginger in your juice? They will specially prepare it for you behind their colorful bar in pastel green. Love it!
In our busy lives, we often choose for easy food and we think it’s a habit to visit the supermarket after a working day and buy the same ready-to-eat salad. Or we order pizza or visit the big yellow M. Consciously or unconsciously, we eat a lot of added preservatives, colorings and flavorings, E-numbers, sugar and salt. The ladies of Sappi know that a lot of citizens of Rotterdam have a very busy life and that’s why they make their smoothies, juices and meals with fresh and healthy ingredients. They also prepare it fast and make sure it’s easy to take away. They definitely live up to this, because the bar was crowded with Rotterdammers with the I choose consciously-thought. Because I didn’t have a busy day, I took place on the barstool at the long wooden table (and, from curiosity, I flipped through the new magazine of Chantal Janzen). Guilty..
A moment later, I got surprised by the new 100% vegan salad with avocado, kidney bones, grilled bell pepper, cucumber, sun-dried tomatoes, pine nuts and nutritional yeast. A filling and healthy salad and a good replacer for your sandwich with chocolate sprinkles. A real recommendation is the sandwich avocado with grilled chicken, avocado, tomatoes, curry mayonnaise and lettuce. I definitely will also come back for the sandwich goat cheese, banana and cream cheese pesto and the other sappi’s of course. For the party animals: maybe the Hangover Killer is something for you?
Do you want to continue the healthy life? Want to be summer proof and shine on the beaches of Curacao, at the Spanish coast or even in Scheveningen? Sappi has the solution for that with a detox juice treatment for three, five or seven days. This is carefully composed by an orthomolecular therapist. Besides detoxification of the body, your body and mind will get some rest. For the (almost) graduates it may be ideal with the perspective of submitting a thesis. Is this something for you and do you want some more information? Just take a look on the website and send an email to email@example.com.
