Why We Exist

We’re here to revolutionize the way people perceive and enjoy healthy shakes, by offering a genuine, unpretentious food that is delicious, fun, and caters to every taste and lifestyle.

Naturally flavored

Utilizing the inherent flavors of high-quality, natural ingredients, including fresh fruits and veggies, we craft incredibly delicious blends that make you keep coming back for more.

Simple Ingredients

Our shakes are simple: milk, protein, fruits, veggies, natural nut butters and minimal added sugar. No artificial flavors or syrups either. Just like homemade but better.

Wholesome

High fiber and protein contents in our shakes provide sustained fullness, delivering a steady and clean energy release that’s unmatched by any other grab-and-go meal.

Made to Order

Each shake is made to order just for you with love and attention, ensuring it’s nothing short of perfect. You can count on a unique and satisfying experience with every sip.

From humble origins to devoted followings

Our journey began in a cozy 650 sq. ft. space in Wethersfield, Connecticut, armed with only 10 recipes and less than $5,000. With a pre-owned refrigerator, freezer, IKEA shelving, and a fresh coat of paint, the very first Fresh Monkee was born in 2014.

The momentum carried us through 2015, as we unveiled our second location in Glastonbury, CT. By 2017, we hit the road with our very own food truck. The whirlwind of 2018 marked the birth of three more Fresh Monkee spots in Berlin, Southington, and Manchester, CT.

Our journey has been driven by the unwavering support of our customers and our dedication to delivering fast, convenient, and healthful options.

The Fresh Monkee was born from a desire for something greater

As a single mother, weary of the corporate world in the financial sector, I embarked on a journey of exploration and discovery. Among a myriad of ideas, one concept consistently outshone the rest: the idea of going beyond the typical juice bar, smoothie joint, or coffee drive-thru. Most juice bars stripped away the fiber from fruits and veggies, which is essential for a healthy gut and feeling satisfied. Smoothie places relied heavily on sugary fruit blends and strange powders. Coffee drinks were usually loaded with sugar and calories. I was convinced we could do better.

My vision was simple: start every shake with high-quality protein, good carbs, healthy fats, and, most importantly, real ingredients like the ones in your own kitchen. And make each shake to order – fast, convenient, and healthy.

Part of my motivation came from battling an eating disorder during my younger years. I was one of the lucky adopted kids from the 70s. My childhood was tough, like many others. My eating disorder got pretty dangerous. Thankfully, seeking help and time in the hospital put me on the road to recovery. This experience taught me so much, especially the importance of proper nutrition. I’d been an athlete my whole life, playing soccer, basketball, running, cycling, and weightlifting, so I knew how crucial it was to nourish my body.

My aspiration, alongside our exceptional team here at The Fresh Monkee, is to give you access to genuine, unpretentious, delicious, and enjoyable food – with the bonus of being super convenient.

I invite you to try our shakes and explore our menu. You’ll find a variety of shakes to suit your tastes every day.

I’m dedicated to crafting memorable experiences for our wonderful customers

My journey with The Fresh Monkee began back in 2015 when I joined the team as a barista at our very first location in Wethersfield, CT. Little did I know that this experience would shape my career and passion for the better.

As I honed my skills and learned the ropes, The Fresh Monkee opened its second location in Glastonbury, CT. I continued to work as a barista, and my dedication and attention to detail caught Judy’s eye. That’s when I got the nod to step into the role of a general manager.

My management style has always focused on fostering a collaborative team environment and ensuring that our operations run smoothly. While managing, I pursued my education at the University of Saint Joseph, earning a BS in Nutrition and Dietetics, which deepened my appreciation for wholesome, real ingredients.

Today, I proudly serve as the Director of Operations at The Fresh Monkee. My role involves a wide range of responsibilities. You’ll see me behind the counter as a barista, creating content for our social media, fixing equipment, the list is endless! It’s a diverse and exciting position that keeps me engaged and invested in the brand’s growth.

I’m thrilled to be part of The Fresh Monkee as it enters its next chapter. The brand’s dedication to providing exceptional customer experiences and promoting a healthy lifestyle aligns perfectly with my values. Every day, I’m excited to contribute to something as beloved as The Fresh Monkee and help it continue to thrive.
