  1. It’s a tough choice for sure – but I think I’m going to have to go with Papa on this one!! <3

    That being said…which would cover the taste of placenta the best? 😉

  2. Definitely Papa’s smoothie

  3. Momma’s smoothie for sure, I really do love that green color to be honest.

    • *Mama’s not Momma’s. Whoops–I’m new to all this.

  4. Mama’s! 🙂

  5. P.S. Love you guys!

  6. Mama’s!!!!

  7. Papa Naturals. Mama Naturals is better for you but his sounds so much more delicious!

  8. Definitely Papa’s

  9. Papa Natural!

  10. mama got my vote, always….mama takes care of practically everything essential to our body, i dont care to much for taste.

  11. I’d go for Mike’s banana and fruit smoothie in a heartbeat. Hulk-green smoothies just don’t do it for me. Also, I think the biggest moment of betrayal in my house will be when my son realizes I’ve been hiding spinach and carrots in his smoothies for years.

  12. Go Mama Natural! It’s a powerhouse smoothie!

  13. Mama’s sounds healthier but Papa’s got to get my vote for more yumminess and ease of prep

  14. They both look like I want to try them. Have you posted the ingredients or directions anywhere? I would love to try them before I vote 🙂
    Ps yes I know this is an old video

  15. Papa Natural’s has ingredients I have in my home all the time, and it sounds tastier with the banana and strawberries! Sorry Mama!!

  16. Most of the ingredients in mama’s smoothie are too hard to come by where I live. So papa gets my vote!

  17. Sorry Mama but that raw egg made yours a BIG no.
    Papa’s sounds pretty good and I’d be happy with that for brekky.

  18. Definitely mama’s! Papa’s smoothie sounds yuck! Haha

  19. Genevieve’s smoothie.

  20. I’d like to try Mama’s…we don’t do oatmeal. I make smoothies very similar to hers but I’ve never tried papaya…too hard to find organic around my neck of the woods and the conventional ones are likely gmo from what I understand. Love your videos!

  21. Definitely Papa Naturals breakfast smoothie! I’ll choose strawberries every time!

  22. my husband and I vote for Papa Naturals…sorry Genevieve

  23. Papas all the way! Not a fan of papaya and raw egg scares me!

  24. I like the sounds of both of them, but Papa Natural’s sounds like something I drink a lot. I actually use filtered water though instead of milk. Nuts are delicious in a smoothie, the Nutribullet creams them so you do not even know they are in there (texture wise).

  25. I would go with Papa’s. love the texture the banana leaves, the strawberries make it more like a dessert and the granola satiates me longer. so there you have it and when I’m a big girl…I’ll get brave enough to try the green one. 🙂

  26. I normally love green smoothies, but the hubbys sounds much more yummy to me!

  27. Would definitely choose Mama’s. Ground up nuts and carrots in my smoothie eeeeewwwww!

  28. I really like the Papaya mix. it is a really nice pick me up in the morning, without an over powering flavor. However I’m not a big fan of drinking granola, ha ha but it was still good. but my favorite is the Papaya smoothie.

  29. Gee, I wish I could combine them for a perfect smoothie, taking what I like from each. My general opinion is that I’d take the ingredients from Papa’s smoothie, except the carrot, and eat them unblended in a cereal bowl … I really can’t see blending granola. Why do that when the best thing about granola is the texture?

    So, I’d choose the green smoothie. BUT, hold the egg yolk. 😛 Unfortunately I never have any of those ingredients around the house. That is another bonus to the pink smoothie, more common ingredients. My final vote is still for the green one, though.

  30. One of our dd’s picked Papa’s, but I pick Mama’s Enzymatic Smoothie! Green is my favorite colour, although not in Smoothies. But I don’t like using milk, and would much rather the yogurt and raw egg (but the spirulina in small quantities).

  31. I would love to try the green one first. My husband was very interested in adding a carrot to the red one. Is it put through a food processor first to chop it fine?

    • Hi Dawn, he just cuts up the carrot and throws in the blender. It purees it nicely.

  32. Both sound good to me! We make a lot of green smoothies especially in our house, so maybe Genevieve wins?

  33. I’m sorry but you said RAW EGG and I cannot go there. My husband has tried to sneak them into me and I catch it every time – by throwing up.


    I generally can’t drink pureed or juiced veggies, either. I like them in solid form of some sort. That said, carrots might be tolerable on a small amount so I’m voting for Papa’s.

  34. Genevieve’s hands down!!!

    • I knew you had good taste, Heather :).

      How are you? I hope well! How’s little Micah doing? Griffin is wonderful. We’re really getting the sleep thing down, thank you God :). He’s babbling and rolling and laughing… oh it’s such a joy!

  35. Sharing some comments from my Facebook page:

    Jill Davis Brown
    Tough choice! I would definitely try them both. Mike’s looks a bit more appetizing and it would easily win the kids over (my kiddos usually choose the green food last ).

    Sara Nagy
    While I was saying I’d only try Papa’s smoothie, my daughter said she would try both”‘Ma, you will never know if you like then unless you try them both”

    Amanda Bourassa
    Mike’s looks fantastic, maybe again its the green but I am not sure about the other one….

    Jeannette Hernandez
    I don’t mind the green, it’s the papaya that scares me. I hate papaya. It makes me gag! I would’ve chosen yours had it had any other fruit. 🙂

    Amanda Bourassa
    I have never heard of it before, maybe I will have to give it a try.. I have a fear of green foods lol! But I do eat them!

    Lisa Bateman
    I love the green! I do one everyday Laura….”- ) I feel physically the best I have ever felt in my life…. it has been 12mths now… thank u xx so u win xx

    And from YouTube:

    i would down both of them in a heartbeat….typically id go for PAPAS due to what i like to eat and usually eat…..but if i was in a mood and wanted something new, MAMAS would be the one. cant ya just mix both and have a SUPER SMOOTHIE lol.

    I’d go for mama’s. A liquid meal isn’t my thing, but if i’m going to have a smoothie i’d much rather it to be packed with goodness rather than just going for flavour 🙂

    Im not big on papaya either…papa’s for sure. 

    My vote goes for PAPA just because I think papaya is yucky. It really makes me gag. I think mamas sounds much better for my body but can I substitute the papaya?

    This is a hard one! I would try them both but the one I would try first would be Mike’s 🙂 I already have all the ingredients and it doesn’t look as thick.

    Genevieve’s for sure!!!

    So far, it’s 7 votes for Papa’s smoothie and 5 votes for Mama’s. (Ladies, can you help a sister out!?)

  36. Mike….
