BLENDER BABES RECIPE TESTER NOTES
“The first time I made this, I used vanilla frozen yogurt.
The next day, I was craving another, but I was out of yogurt, so I subbed a frozen banana…which I loved even better than the one with yogurt!” and “I think this recipe was easy, and ended in a great final result.
I’ll definitely be making this again.”
HEALTH BENEFITS NON-DAIRY MILK
These days, people aren’t limited to drinking just cow’s milk.
There are many reasons for moving away from traditional dairy.
More and more studies are suggesting that perhaps cow’s milk isn’t the healthiest option.
Some are concerned about America’s industrial production of dairy, including pasteurization, others are worried about added hormones and the ethical treatment of dairy cows.
Still others believe that cow’s milk, no matter how ethically produced, has adverse health effects on children and adults.

I have heard of Jamba Juice but have never seen one. I’m guessing they must be in the big cities, and I’m just a back woods, small town gal.
I`ve never tried any before,,but this sounds delicious!!
My favourite Jamba juice is their citrus kick. I would love to try it with banana or avocado
Haven’t been to a Jamba Juice, but, this recipe sounds great!!!
This one is my favorite. I LOVE the orange julius smoothie (or anything orange for that mater.)
Absolutely love it, thanks. My favorite Jamba Juice smoothie is Strawberries Wild, to make it healthier I would use dairy free yogurt and soy milk.
Great way to make it more healthier!
i like your recipe , my healthy way is : 1 tablespoon of green tea powder +2 orange+1/2 banana + a little bit of honey to be loaded into blender, till they are mixed together then you can enjoy very health juice smooth
I’ve been really loving using green tea powder too! Will have to try this version thanks for sharing Christina! 🙂
My favorite on the menu is the Orange Dream Machine, so this recipe is right up my alley! Off the secret menu, I like the Pink Star. For the Orange Dream Machine, I’d try to use low-fat/non-fat frozen yogurt.
I’ve never had the Pink Star! Need to try it STAT! 🙂
I haven’t tried Jamba Juice as we don’t have one in our area but I’ve always thought it looked good!
Haven’t been in a while but i remember liking the razzmatazz
To make the Jamba Juice Peanut Butter Moo’d smoothie healthier, I’d substitute PB2 powder for the peanut butter!! Less fat and you still get your protein!!
I haven’t been to Jamba Juice in years, but this recipe looks great! I love the tester’s comment that you can successfully sub banana for the yogurt. Thank you!
