Short Summary

I founded Buddha's Belly Smoothie Cafe after being a raw vegan for the past 2 years. Changing my diet changed my life- it made me happier, healthier, and gave me more passion for life. About 6 months ago, I decided that I wanted to dedicate myself to bringing health and awareness to as many people as possible.

Denver is a perfect place for a raw, vegan restaurant since SO many people are vegan and enjoy eating healthy food! Everyone I talk to about Buddha's Belly Smoothies is so passionate about the mission because they realize that we desperately need a restaurant like this in Denver.

Our goal:

Our goal is to bring the most delicious, healthy food to people that are on the go. Instead of being a sit-down restaurant, we decided to brand ourselves as a "fast food" cafe and smoothie bar. We realize that restaurants like McDonald's and Burger King are extremely popular for people with busy, hectic lifestyles- but when people eat such unhealthy food, they are not able to perform to their highest ability. We want Buddha's Belly to be able to compete with these fast food chains, while at the same time only delivering organic, raw, vegan, gluten and soy free, and non-GMO food.

Food quality and health are our HIGHEST priorities. Buddha's Belly will never sacrifice the quality of the food we serve in order to bring down prices or add to the taste of our food. We believe that organic, raw food brings out the most delicious flavors, and no added fillers or preservatives are ever needed!!

What We Need & What You Get

We need $10,000 for the following items:

  • Professional Food Dehydrator
  • Juicers
  • Blenders
  • A fridge


The reason why the goal is set to only $7,000 is because if we get less than $10,000 we will take out a loan to pay for the rest and we did not want to risk us not reaching our goal. But if we could raise $10,000 in 15 days, that would be amazing!

The Impact

Buddha's Belly is a company dedicated to bringing healthy, farm-to-table, Non GMO food to its customers. By supporting us, you will be welcoming a new business to Denver that will strive every day to bring awareness to health, nutrition, permiculture, and eco-concious living.
