It’s been a fun challenge duplicating Jamba Juice’s refreshing smoothies with only 4 ingredients. Have you tried my Mango-A-Go-Go recipe yet? Well, I can’t decide which one I love more! I loved the tropical mango flavor, but yet love the sweet taste of strawberries and raspberries in this Razzmatazz smoothie. Who says we need to choose favorites, right? Well, now that I bring it up, what’s your favorite Jamba smoothie?
When purchasing frozen mixed berries, choose organic. I know, I know, it’s slightly more expensive but isn’t your health worth it? Organic produce and frozen organic produce eliminate pesticides, chemicals, waxes, and other harmful substances. Organic also tastes better and provides greater nutritional value. After noticeably tasting the difference, I choose organic fruits and vegetables when I can.
I know I just mentioned this in my Mango-A-Go-Go recipe. However, I really cannot go a day without my Vitamix. If you’re going to have awesome smoothies, a quality blender is the ‘must’ of all ‘musts’. Read here why I decided to buy a Vitamix. I’ve heard good things about BlendTec and Ninja, but I will always be faithful to Vitamix.
When picking orange juice, read the ingredients! Many have added sugar or preservatives. The closest to freshly squeezed orange juice is Simply Orange. It’s not-from-concentrate and you can taste the quality in comparison to others. I’m an avid water drinker, but when needed for recipes I only purchase Simply Orange juice. Once again, a little more expensive but totally worth it. Enjoy your homemade Jamba, my friends!
