Hana James – Rise ‘n’ Blend: A Plant-Based Smoothie to Kick-Start Your Day


Friday September 7, 5:00 pm to 6:00 pm | Lakeside Terrace | Cooking Demo

If your Instagram feed is a veritable rainbow of blended beverages, and you want in on the action (but feel you barely even have time for oatmeal), this is the demo for you. Hana James, Co-Founder and Director of Community at Greenhouse, invites you to join her morning routine (sans bedhead and PJs) as she whips up a batch of Greenhouse’s famous Rococoa smoothie—a decadent shake with a flavour akin to a chocolate-dipped almond. Hana will cover all the smoothie-making basics so you’ll be blending with the best of them in next to no time.

For years, Hana has been interested in the use of food as medicine; it’s what lead her to found Greenhouse alongside long-time pals Emma Knight and Anthony Green. Greenhouse’s mission is to offer widespread, sustainable access to plant-based nutrition of the highest quality. This has been the company’s sole motivation in the four years Greenhouse has been in operation, and in that time, they’ve opened sixteen stores across the GTA, made huge strides in innovation in their technology and products, and even published a bestselling recipe book, The Greenhouse Cookbook. Join Hana as she shares her personal and professional journey with you and demonstrates how to make easy, plant-based treats, without all the unnecessary sugary add-ins.
