Knock Off Jamba Juice Caribbean Passion Smoothie

I first heard about the Crazy Cooking Challenge from my Get Your Chef On/bestest blog buddy Jen from Four Marrs & One Venus.  Jen had talked to Kim from Cups by Kim to get some ideas for how we would send out the emails for GYCO.  

It was a grilled cheese crazy cooking challenge.  Sign me up!  Now really, I signed up!  All the grilled cheese recipes made me drool.  Then it happened.  I realized the next round – my first participation round – was fruit smoothies.  Oh lord.  What would I make?  I really didn’t feel inspired or drawn to any recipes.

And then I went to Jamba Juice.  Light bulb!! (now say it like Gru)  My favorite Jamba Juice smoothie is Caribbean Passion.  With my love for knock offs I was sure there had to be a recipe, somewhere out there, with a knock off Caribbean Passion recipe for me.  And there is!!

I think my favorite thing about the Crazy Cooking Challenge is that you get the chance to totally feature and show off another blogger’s awesome work.  I found my smoothie recipe over at Meemo’s Kitchen.  Pattie’s blog is full of amazing copycat/knock off recipes.  I think I’ve found my new “I can make that!” mecca.  I highly encourage you to check out Pattie’s blog and Tina’s blog – Mom’s Crazy Cooking – she is our gracious hostess after all.  ;)

    Hi Julie! I just LOVE smoothies. They are my go to quick meal when I don't feel like being in the kitchen or are not too too hungry. I load mine with bananas, spinach, mangos, yogurt, and frozen strawberries. I love your addition of sherbert!

    You had me sold when you said “Naked” :) I love Naked Juice – it's the best! I bet the Orange Mango Naked Juice (now called Mighty Mango) would be fantastic in this smoothie too!

    I stumbled, pinned, tweeted, and FB'd your entry!
