Jamba Juice’s Pumpkin Smash Smoothie (Copy-Cat)

Jamba Juice’s fantastic seasonal creation blends a pumpkin spice base with frozen yogurt and soy milk. It’s like drinking pumpkin pie through a straw! My home version is really yummy too with just the right amount of spice. I’ve made some new changes to the recipe since I created it many years ago.  These changes include a one-cup serving instead of a 2 cup serving.  One cup is very satisfying.  In addition, cutting down the sugar and adding some sugar substitute. Now each skinny 1 cup serving has 127 calories and 1 gram of fat. This delectable smoothie is wonderful for the entire family as an afternoon snack but it also tastes amazing for dessert. So get out the blender and give this super yummy smoothie a whirl!

Helpful Tips About this Recipe

Makes 2-(1 cup each) smoothies or 1 (2-cups serving)
Food Facts
Jamba Juice rolls out this smoothie every fall and offers it until January.

Healthy Benefits

Pumpkin is a great source of beta-carotene, which the body turns into vitamin A.  It also contains a hefty amount of fiber, a good amount of vitamin C and iron.
Soy milk contains about the same proportion of protein as milk. It’s a good source of lecithin and vitamin E.

Shopping Tips
I use fat-free frozen yogurt from my local yogurt shop or Edy’s fat free vanilla frozen yogurt from the supermarket.

Storage Tips

Store leftover canned pumpkin in a plastic container in the fridge.  It will keep for several days and you’ll surely want to make this smoothie again. Freezing is another good way to preserve leftover pumpkin. You should never freeze canned goods inside the can, but you can easily freeze canned pumpkin once you remove it from the can. Store it in a plastic container or freezer bag.
