This Caribbean Passion Smoothie is a copycat of the popular Jamba Juice recipe: Fruity and delicious perfection! Make it in 1 minute with just 5 ingredients.
If I'm going to Jamba Juice, I'm ordering the Caribbean Passion Smoothie.
Or I should say... When I used to go to Jamba Juice... because now that I know the secret to my all-time favorite menu item, I don't really need to go there anymore.
What do they put in Jamba Juice Smoothies?
Most of their fruit smoothies include a combination of fresh or frozen fruit, fruit juice, and frozen sherbet.
If you're wondering if there is a lot of sugar in a fruity Jamba Juice Smoothie, the answer is emphatically yes.
The only potentially tricky ingredient here is the mango passion fruit juice. I found a few different options after perusing a couple of stores. My favorite option is the Welch's Chillers Mango Passion Fruit Juice Drink (it's so low in actual juice, I'm embarrassed for them, but it's delicious).
I also found a Minute Maid Light™ Mango Passion Fruit Drink which is only 15 calories. It works, especially if you are calorie-counting, but it definitely has that "artificial sweetener" taste. In a pinch, you can buy passion fruit juice and mango juice separately and mix them in equal parts.
And that's it! You can use fresh or frozen fruit for the strawberries and peaches. If you have a low-end blender, it may be helpful to use fresh fruit or thaw the fruit before blending.
