There are endless ways to use blueberry powder (also called bilberry powder) or any other berry powder. As it’s easy to use and mix with other ingredients, and as it has a mild and delicious blueberry flavor, it goes well with so many foods and snacks.
This is why blueberry powder is a great alternative for blueberry extracts and blueberry supplements. By using this, you get the same health benefits as from the blueberry extracts and blueberry supplements, but also get to really enjoy the flavor of blueberry and beautiful color it gives to your food.
While everyone has their own favorite way of using this berry powder, we know that people always excited to try out new ways and recipes. We put together 10 ideas below to inspire you to try something new and to boost your favorite foods and snacks with antioxidant and vitamin-packed wild Nordic blueberry powder also called bilberry powder.
One of the easiest ways to add a superfood boost to your daily diet is to add a spoonful of blueberry powder in your yogurt. This is a perfect way to add antioxidants, vitamins, and fibers especially if you have a busy lifestyle and don’t have time to play around with more advanced and time-consuming recipes. Just sprinkle on top of the yogurt, or go fancy with colorful double-layered yogurt with granola and bilberry powder.
Another classic way of boosting your diet – mixing the wild blueberry powder in your favorite smoothies. Arctic Flavors’ wide range of berry powders has different flavors that create unique combinations with your favorite fruits and vegetables. When it comes to smoothies, it’s so much fun to play around with flavors, colors, and textures. Here’s our perfect smoothie bowl recipe made with blueberry powder.

With basically no sugar or fat, with high amounts of healthy nutrients, it is an excellent addition to an active and healthy lifestyle. Here’s one of our favorite protein shake recipes: Nutritious & low-calorie wild blueberry antioxidant protein shake.

9. Decorating desserts
Bilberry dessert recipes…we love them! There are multiple ways of using the blueberry powder for dessert decoration, but our favorite way is simply sprinkling it as decoration. It totally takes a plain white cheesecake or pannacotta to a new level. Blueberry powder goes with tiramisu too – try our slightly twisted classic tiramisu recipe here.
10. Ice cream
Adding some blueberry powder into a homemade ice cream mixture is one of the easiest ways to turn plain ice cream to a berry ice cream. You can modify the intensity blueberry flavor and beautiful purple color based on the amount of powder added in the mixture.
