Delicious Berry Smoothie | Recipe

smoothie recipe muffinchanel This simple smoothie is so delicious. With just five ingredients + ice, this smoothie is healthy and easy to make.

This berry smoothie is my favorite for a healthy breakfast or an afternoon treat. The sherbet makes it a little on the dessert side, but I like how the fresh berries and juices give me my fruit serving for the day. It’s super easy to make and is delicious!

You’ll need:

  • 12 oz. Raspberry Juice
  • 9 oz. Orange Juice
  • 1c. Scoop of Raspberry Sherbet
  • 1/2c. Scoop of Raspberries
  • 1/2c. Scoop of Strawberries
  • Ice

Jamba Juice – charging $.25/boost starting tomorrow?

If you have been to the smoothie chain, Jamba Juice, you might know about the free “boosts” you can add to your smoothie.

menu_pic_prod_1Boosts are tasteless powders that claim to add extra vitamins or other ingredients to enhance your mind and body. As it is now, the first boost is free then each additional is $.25, but I found out from my local Jamba Juice that they will be charging 25 cents for every boost starting tomorrow.

3G Charger Boost

Keep those peepers peeled late into the day with this boost crammed with energy from guarana, ginseng, and green tea.

Antioxidant Boost

Neutralize free radicals and keep your little cells as happy as you can with this boost rich in vitamins A, C and E.

Daily Vitamin Boost

Make sure you don’t miss anything with this overachieving boost containing 9 essential minerals and 100% of your daily requirement of 13 vitamins.

Energy Boost

A B-vitamin caffeine-free energy boost to help you fight fatigue. It’s much more pleasant than slapping yourself at your desk.

Flax & FiberBooster

This excellent source of fiber also keeps your blood pumpin’ with a boost full of Omega-3s for healthy arteries.

C & Zinc Boost

Shore up your immune system with this boost that includes Vitamin C and is loaded with zinc and laugh victoriously in the face of a rainy day.

Probiotic Boost

Support your digestive and immune systems with this boost containing 500 million probiotic cultures. Don’t worry – they are all very polite.

Soy Protein Boost

It’s the best way for those who would never eat meat to put some meat on their bones. This source of non-animal protein helps build muscle and supports cell growth.

Lean AdvantageBoost

Engineered to compliment your healthy diet and exercise program to promote lean, mean muscle. *Lean Advantage™ Boost is made with conjugated linoleic acid, or “CLA”, which is derived from safflower oil. CLA is a naturally occurring fatty acid that is commonly found in foods such as milk. CLA intake of between 1.7 grams to 3.6 grams per day for eight to 12 weeks can lead to improved weight management when combined with a healthy diet and exercise program. Results will not be achieved with sporadic consumption. Each serving of Weight Burner™ Boost supplies two grams of CLA.

Whey ProteinBoost

You put your muscles through the ringer; the least you could do is help them recover afterwards with protein to help support cell growth and building of muscle tissue.

I always get the C & Zinc boost (Immunity), but since the boosts are tasteless and you don’t even really know if there was anything added at all, I can’t imagine paying an extra  $.25 for it. :/ It’s just kind of a bummer since, with the weather warming up, nothing tastes better than a nice, cold fruit smoothie and that extra “boost” can make you feel like your making a healthier choice for the day.

I still love Jamba Juice — definitely try their Berry Lime Sublime; it’s amazing!
