Ok, so I looove Jamaba Juice! One problem…we don’t have a Jamba Juice 😦 After watching that great video about our new Immersion Blender, I decided to put it to the test! I wanted to make my own smoothies! So far I’ve only made one kind. I love Jamba Juice’s Sunrise Smoothie. I knew what was in the smoothie, but I further did some research online to see if I could find the exact recipe. The one I found called for ice and no yogurt. So I improvised and used yogurt instead. So here it goes…
Prep Time: 5-10 min
No cook time we aren’t cooking anything! It takes about 2 minutes using the immersion blender to get it well blended.
Serving Size: For one person
1/4-1/2 cup OJ (depending on how thick you want it add less for thicker smoothie, add more for a thinner smoothie)
2 tablespoons Plain Low Fat Yogurt (any brand)
4-5 Frozen Strawberries (or you can use fresh ones)
1 whole Banana
Our immersion blender comes with this cup. You can use an immersion blender if you have one or I’m sure a blender will work just as well. Place frozen strawberries in cup or blender.
Start blending your smoothie! On the immersion blender I use the Turbo setting on number 4 or 5. I do like a up and down motion to get all the ingredients well mixed.
Blend everything until mixture is smooth and there are no chunks. That’s it! This is very quick and easy. I have one at least twice a week for breakfast. This is my favorite smoothie. Hope you enjoy! And if you want a added boost you can always add some protein powder or even flax seed oil!
