My husband use to call me from payphones. He was in California and I was in Utah. We’d each get a Jamba Juice Strawberry Smoothie, he’d call from the payphone that overlooked the Pacific Ocean in the Bay Area and I’d be home. He’d share the sunset with me. Describing the flares of color and painting the picture for me.
This Jamba Juice Strawberry Wild Smoothie takes me back to those moments. When life was simpler. When we made time to stop and watch the sunset and didn’t let anything–including distance, keep us from sharing it together.
This recipe is close to the original. It’s easy to make and is a delicious treat on the go, and best when shared!
Its freshness will remind you why you are a Jamba Juice Junkie; making it at home is budget-friendly and I promise this one is so close in taste to the original that you won’t need Jamba Juice to get your fix.
My kiddos love this smoothie for breakfast and it’s one of their favorites as an after school snack. We love that it is easy and quick to make.
Keep life simple and make time for Jamba Juice.
For this recipe, I use frozen strawberries, however, you can use fresh strawberries that have been frozen. We have a lot of roadside stands and when it’s the strawberry season, we’ll buy a bunch and then wash and slice them, bag them in freezer bags and freeze them. Because I know my kiddos love this copy cat smoothie recipe, I’ll bag a few 1 cup bags so they can just grab and go. If I have bananas getting ripe, I’ll open the bag of strawberries and add banana slices to it and place back in the freezer. Then the bag just can be taken out and the ingredients put into the blender for even quicker preparation.
If you’re looking to reduce the calories, without sacrificing the flavor, Instead of using a high-calorie frozen yogurt, Try using a nonfat vanilla greek yogurt or even regular non-greek plain or vanilla yogurt.
I find it best to add the liquid to the blender before adding the fruit. This seems to make it a quicker process with a more smoothly blended texture.
