Green smoothies aren’t just healthy — they’re delicious! (Photo: Stocksy)
What are the chances that two moms who met in a kids play group would become business partners and build a powerful social media empire based off of … smoothies?
This is the true story of Jen Hansard and Jadah Sellner of Simple Green Smoothies.
I loved hearing their story of starting from nothing, learning from their mistakes, and following their hearts to make the incredible brand that they head today. A strong theme of their success: their genuine love of green smoothies. Drinking just one homemade green smoothie, full of whole, fresh fruits and greens, per day made a massive difference in their health, as well as their families. They just had to share.
As Jen and Jadah explained what inspired them to create their incredibly popular Instagram account, Simple Green Smoothies, I was inspired by how passionate they were. I didn’t think drinking one smoothie a day would really make that big of an impact.
I asked them what they thought of green juice and whether it was as healthy as smoothies. Jen explained that while juice packs a lot of nutrients (if you make it yourself and don’t add sugar), it strips out all of the fiber and other properties of the whole food.
Smoothies, they explained, allow you to capture all of the nutrients and still contain the fiber from the produce.
As a bonus, Jen pointed out that juicers are a big mess to clean up every day, but blenders can be cleaned with just a quick rinse.
