Jamba Juice Strawberry Smoothie

If you have read my site for long you know that I love to find make at home versions of foods we love.

I love the challenge of coming up with a less expensive and  healthier version of our favorite foods.

I have done this with my Chipotle style black beans and rice, a Jamba Juice Orange Smoothie, Emeril’s Seasoning, and with Marie Callender’s Cornbread.

Today I have yet another copycat recipe that we love.

We enjoy smoothies and make them quite often. I usually try to make healthy smoothies, but occasionally we like to make more of a dessert style smoothie.

Today’s recipe is definitely more of a dessert style recipe. This is not something I would serve my kids for breakfast, we eat this as a dessert, but whenever you eat this it is really good.

I will say that the amounts in this do not have to be exact. I use the basic measurements as a guide, but I do not usually measure everything exactly.

  1. I keep all the leftover banana pieces (my kids always want a whole banana and end up leaving 30% behind) in a plastic bag in the freezer. Our favorite smoothie combo is yogurt with frozen pineapple, a scoop of OJ concentrate, and a tsp of coconut extract. I always make extra so we can have popsicles!

    • @karen, I am going to have to start adding a little coconut extract to some of my smoothies. I never thought to do that. It would add a lot of great flavor. Thanks for the idea!

  2. Love Jamba! This is a great recipe — thanks 🙂
