sorry about the alliteration, guys. I just couldn’t help myself.
we made this smoothie in my cooking class at byu. I worked at Planet Smoothie in high school, so I know what good smoothie consistency means. and it is the only smoothie I’ve ever been able to recreate the Jamba Juice quality of — three times now!
- 1 cup (or about 10 large) strawberries
- 1/4 sugar
- 1 cup milk
- 2 cups ice cubes
- 1 cup yogurt
- add milk and yogurt to the blender
- while blending (or after, if you’re chicken like me), add strawberries like 2 or 3 at a time until well mixed
- add ice cubes the same way
- add sugar (to taste)
- go lay outside and enjoy the sun
taste rating: 8.5/10
super yummy — but my roommates were totally turned off by the amount of sugar I put in. last time I even threw in half a banana and it was still fab. add your own fruit and tell me what you think! just be sure to add more yogurt or ice if the consistency gets off. hint – add yogurt, NOT milk, to fix consistency. milk makes it get too runny.
ease of cooking/preparation: 9.5/10
like I said before, this is the only smoothie known to mankind (or, me-kind) that can be the perfect Jamba Juice consistency right in your own stinking kitchen. super stinking easy and great for summertime. I kid you not, this was my dinner last night and it took me approximately 3 minutes.
