It was very early on Monday morning and I was about to get some Chick-Fil-A for breakfast.....but then I figured I would get something healthy and Bam! The Fresh Monkee came and saved the day (and trip, I was making my way to New Hampshire). The place was completely empty when I went inside so I was able to get in and out super fast thanks to the speedy employee. I ended up ordering the the chocolate/peanut butter/banana one (the name is slipping my mind). Like I said, the drink came out super fast and it was absolutely delicious. The drink wasn't too thick and it wasn't to soft either making it just the right consistency! Overall, this might just be my favourite place to stop and get a smoothie. The prices are similar to all the competition, but the taste seemed to be above the rest. Come and try the fresh monkee for your More...

Fresh Monkee is great! I love their wide-variety of options, something for everyone! The owner is very philanthropic, always donating to non-profit events and very supportive of the Glastonbury community.

Lots of healthy choices made into delicious shakes. I had the pumpkin cheesecake, my son had the strawberry. We will b going back. More...

The Fresh Monkee is a great, quick spot to grab a healthy lunch alternative. Should I be getting it every day instead of eating real meals? Probably not, but when it's good, quick, and convenient, why not? They have a large amount of smoothies and a ton of options to customize your drinks/meal replacements. Keep in mind that many customization do come at a higher cost. I always opt for the snack size as that is enough for me. My go-to option is the Chunkee Monkee with chocolate protein and almond milk (add $0.50). My drinks end up at $7 usually, which does feel high, but if you're treating it like a meal replacement, the cost could be worse. Most drinks come with protein powder, natural fruit, and if needed, sugar free chocolate sauce! If you are so inclined, they also have a rewards program through the Clover app. You will check in on that app, and after 10 drinks, you get 1 free. I'm usually in and out of the Fresh Monkee within 5-10 minutes with a delicious smoothie in my hands! More...

So happy I finally tried fresh monkee! Went in for the first time the other day and they were really helpful with guiding me to which flavors I would like best and making suggestions I would like. I tried the blueberry pie smoothie with a scoop of peanut butter (which they recommend). Now looking at the size I was like "this is the smallest one they have?! There's no way I'm going to finish that"! Well I'll have you know I did, it was that delicious. I've never ever finished a smoothie that big before because I get full very easy. But this was honestly one of the best tasting smoothies I've ever had. I will be making this a regular morning stop for me. Can't wait to try all the flavors! More...

This was my first experience with the Fresh Monkey. Before the smoothie,  the help is friendly and loaded with knowledge and they question you for your likes and dislikes to make the smoothie you will truly enjoy. They were spot on on my wife and I. I am sold on the Fresh Monkey. As a matter of fact the help should make a commercial. They are that good. More...

Soon moving to the TJ Maxx plaza, this is the OG Fresh Monkee location and the staff here is just wonderful (like every other reviewer says). I thought this location was quite small compared to the new ones, so I'm happy and excited they're getting a bigger space!If you're in need of a quick, grab & go lunch while you're out running errands, The Fresh Monkee is a great choice! The protein content in the snack size fills me up and tastes like a dessert! I always go for the Hazlenut Monkee but you can't go wrong with anything PB flavored, especially if you aren't crazy about the taste of whey protein. Give this a try ASAP! More...

I love this place! I was visiting my hometown and needed a vegan option, which is surprisingly difficult to find in Hartford County. I can count on one hand the number of places I can get something that doesn't have dairy or meat in it. I had visited the Fresh Monkee once last year, and couldn't remember if I liked it or not. I think I know the answer now - I stopped by and grabbed a snack sized smoothie 3 out of the 5 days I was in town! I'm a creature of habit, so I stuck with the PB & J (I know I got that wrong, but you'll know what I'm talking about if you see the menu). I swapped the cow's milk for almond, and the whey protein for pea protein, and oh em gee. Delish. The staff was super pleasant, and I told multiple CT friends who somehow didn't know the existed how great they are. I hope to send more people their way! More...

Are the folks at The Fresh Monkee the nicest people in Connecticut?  They just might be!!! No, for real. I went to the Wethersfield location this afternoon and was very warmly greeted by the two young women working today. They helpfully explained the menu and offered up some favorite choices. I picked the chocolate pumpkin smoothie and asked for coconut milk as a substitute. I was impressed that I was told which other ingredients included some form of dairy, trace or otherwise. The finished product was perfect. My only regret was that there isn't a Fresh Monkee closer to me. Quick note, TFM is easy to miss tucked into a plaza, so slow down and look for it. You will be happy you stopped!! More...

Just a great Fresh Monkee location in my hometown of Wethersfield.Easily accessible from the highway, it is right on the Silas Deane, but also hides in plain sight. I have came here multiple times and every single visit my order comes out the same and my military discount is honored everytime no issues.I never had an issue in regard to waiting time, it is either immediately or reasonable considering the situation as sometimes it is very busy in the morning.I would say this is one of Fresh Monkee's "tighter" locations but there are a few chairs and a sofa for you to enjoy your shake.Typically I order a Dirty Monkey w/almond milk, extra scoop of vegan protein powder and no chocolate syrup. Comes out perfect every single time and this consistency is important as one time at one of their other locations the consistency was horrible and was not blended completely which did not help the situation.So yes, this is my go to Fresh Monkee location and in my own experience they are the most consistent one as well.

They had a few specialty flavors not on the menu, delicious. This location will probably be the one I go to the most because of how close it is to my home, and how nice this one is.

I've been eyeing this place for quite a while now, wanting to try it out after a workout. I usually go to Whole Foods for their double green, which I refer to as tasting like "frozen lawn".  I certainly DON'T want to add a bunch of unnecessary calories after working so hard!! My health conscious teenage son had just been there and said he had a great shake there. Bingo, we ventured out together.  The place is really tucked away in an older plaza, which you might not see if your not frequenting the area.  Nevertheless, it's so bright and cheery in there!  The staff is so cheerful and helpful.  The gals there took the time to ask what I'd prefer & recommended the low cal watermelon pineapple mint with a dash of added chia protein to rebuild muscle. My son had his go to strawberry banana with vanilla protein.  We received a reward card with two stamps.  It was $13 for the small (bite) and medium (snack) sizes.  A bit pricy, but it's the going rate around these parts. Next time, and there WILL be one, I'll try the ultimate green.  We both left happy! More...
