Jackie's Version of Jamba Juice's Peach Perfection Smoothie

Last summer I spent an inordinate amount of time and money in Jamba Juice. A retailer that creates blended drinks from fresh and frozen fruit and juices, Jamba Juice's smoothies are simply delicious. But at about $3.50 for a 16-oz size, they're a tad pricey for a more than once a week fix. At least for someone on a tight budget.


So I decided to look up the ingredients of my favorite all-fruit smoothie, Peach Perfection, and make one for myself. I found their ingredients to be startlingly simple and their smoothies incredibly easy to make!


Here's my favorite recipe, one that I revise each season for what fruit's in season and what frozen fruit I have stocked in the freezer. Submitted by TERRIFICLYFIT
