Jamba Juice Smoothies

I've never been a big fan of milkshakes and don't eat many Slurpee's, but give me a chance and I will enjoy a cold refreshing Jamba Juice any day of the week, any time of the day. (Imagine what that will do on the budget... ) I've tried making them at home and never quite got things right. Always too much ice and not enough flavor or too creamy or... you get the idea. So when Josh brought home a recipe from school for the Razzmatazz Jamba Juice Smoothie we thought we'd give it a try but didn't get our hopes up. Oh Man, heaven has come upon the household.. without breaking the bank. We eat smoothies every morning for breakfast, snacks after school, something sweet after dinner.. give us an excuse. So here is the thing, once you get the general idea down you can substitute any fruit or nectar or sherbet. It is quick, easy, and absolutely delicious.

Jamba Juice Razzmatazz Fruit Smoothie

1 TBS Frozen Apple Juice concentrate
3/4 cup strawberry nectar
1 cup frozen blueberries
3/4 cup raspberry sherbet
3/4 cup frozen vanilla yogurt
1/2 banana
1 cup ice

Add everything to blender and blend until smooth.

*note: nectar can sometimes be found in the juice isle and also in the Hispanic food section of most grocery stores.
