Happy Monkey is a brand who produce chilled smoothies and milkshakes for children. The smoothies come in two flavours – orange & mango and strawberry & banana – with no added sugar, no sweetners, no preservatives, no bits and 100% pure fruit. Each carton contains one full portion of fruit towards your 5 a day and is an ideal size for a lunchbox. The milkshakes come in two flavours – chocolate and strawberry – and contain all the goodness of milk, have no artificial flavours or colouring and are school approved.
Happy Monkey also have the Rainforest Alliance Certified seal. This means that they only use bananas for their smoothies which are grown in an environmentally sustainable way and that fair wages are paid to the workers so they can enjoy better living conditions, housing, medical care for them and their dependants plus free education for their children.
I received some free samples of Happy Monkey smoothies and milkshakes to review, which my children have been trying over the last few days. Verdict from son1 was that he really loved the strawberry and banana smoothie, second place to chocolate milkshake and third place to strawberry milkshake. He didn’t like the orange and mango smoothie, but he has never particularly liked orange or mango drinks, so no reflection on the product. I finished his rejected carton and thought it delicious. Meanwhile son2 was the opposite, as he liked the strawberry milkshake best, then chocolate milkshake and then orange and mango smoothie He declared that he didn’t like the strawberry and banana smoothie, but he may have just been trying to copy his brother, as this was the drink he was having at the time son1 said he didn’t like the orange and mango one.
They retail at all major supermarkets. According to My Supermarket, the best price currently is at Asda where the smoothies are £1.50 for 4 and the milkshakes are £1 for 3. This is very good value in my opinion.
Overall I was very pleased with these products. They will definitely be going on my shopping list. Both good for the kids and being ethical makes me happy.
You can also find some fun games on the Happy Monkey website. Son1 had lots of fun playing Bongo Balls.
