Jamba All Natural Smoothies Strawberries Wild

Frozen Smoothie Mix by Jamba

When I saw this frozen smoothie mix at the grocery store, I thought it would be a great way to add a little fruit into L’s diet on the days between grocery store trips when all of our fresh produce has been eaten, but it’s a few more days until payday.

Jamba makes a few different frozen smoothie mix flavors. The frozen smoothie mix I tried was Strawberries Wild. Included in the frozen smoothie mix are: strawberries, bananas, and yogurt. You add either one cup of apple or orange juice and blend for about 60 seconds, until smooth.

Simply Apple Pure Pressed Apple Juice

1 Cup of Apple Juice

Pros:

  • Taste – This smoothie tastes really good. It’s pretty sweet, so I don’t think it would be hard to get kids to drink it, but I wouldn’t want my daughter to drink it every day.
  • Texture – This smoothie has a rich, thick, creamy texture.
  • Add-ins – I’m almost positive I could’ve added fresh spinach to this smoothie, undetected.

 Cons:

  • Too Sweet – Like I said before, this smoothie is really sweet. If I make it again, I will use 1/2 cup water & 1/2 cup juice instead of the entire cup of juice. I’m also interested in what it would taste like if I just used water. Notice that sugar is listed in the ingredients right after water? I bet they coat the fruit in sugar water before they freeze it. In my opinion, that’s just unnecessary.
  •  Blendability – I had to use the ice crushing mode and jiggle my blender a couple of times to get this smoothie blended all the way. Fresh produce is much easier to blend.
  • There were a few strawberries seeds in the finished smoothie – in my experience, young kids don’t like any type of seed in their drinks. If your child is picky about texture, you could always strain it through a cheesecloth before serving.

Overall:

I would give this smoothie 4 out of 5 stars. I love the ease of this frozen smoothie mix. Open freezer. Tear pouch. Add juice. Blend. L can basically make these by herself. Just because the directions say to use one cup of juice doesn’t mean you have to. Next time I make this I will blend it with 1/2 cup water, 1/2 cup juice and a cup of fresh spinach.

  1. I give this a 5 star rating overall for the Strawberry Wild flavor. Great tasting product and very refreshing. The initial rating on here lists sweetness as a negative which I cannot comment on since I do not make it with apple juice as the package suggests but rather with skim milk. If you put the ice cubes in the blender first, followed by the liquid and jamba mix and gently wiggle the blender as its mixing, the drink will blend up perfectly.
