Homemade Jamba Juice

One of our favorite things to do on vacation is to get Jamba Juice. It might sound silly and somewhat bandwagon, but we really enjoy these juice/smoothies! I wish they had one in Des Moines, although it's probably better for my wallet that there isn't one.

These smoothies are a great way to get rid of extra/soon-to-be-spoiling fruit all in one swoop. In this smoothie there is a banana, a kiwi, strawberries, blueberries, and a couple of raspberries (Yes, I have all that fruit at my house at one time. Yes, all of the fruit is fresh too). In addition to the fruit I add a half scoop of chia seeds (for omega 3 fatty acids), some Simply Orange Mango Juice, 3 ice cubes, and a secret ingredient: blood orange and pomegranate sorbet. I think the secret ingredient makes the smoothie more Jamba Juice like.

Blend, blend, blend and voila - a Jamba Juice smoothie! It's a great way to get all my fruit servings completed by 10 am.
