Because our dogs drink so much water, I thought it would be a good idea to get a water container for the dogs that didn’t have to be filled so often.  Emmy thought it was great and Sophie was scared of it…

Chunky Strawberry Smoothie from Jamba Juice September 6, 2011

Filed under: Food,Recipe — 8:00 am

I love the Chunky Strawberry Smoothies at Jamba Juice and I have experimented for a long time to get the closest I can to the real thing at home.

Here is what you will need:

  • 2T Plain Yogurt
  • 2-3T Milk
  • 3T Peanut Butter
  • 3/4 of a frozen banana (cut into 2-3 pieces for better blending)
  • 1 Cup frozen strawberries
  • 1/2 Cup Plain Granola (1/4 for smoothie; 1/4 for sprinkling)
  • Fresh banana cut into slices

Put everything into the Vitamix blender in the order listed above, turn to level three and use the tamper to push the strawberries and bananas into the blade.  Start with 2T of milk and add more milk if the mixture is not blending.  Blend until chunky in consistency.  Transfer to a cup.  Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup granola over the top and slice up some fresh banana for the top.

These little brats have two more weeks of the good life until a new baby shows up on the scene.  All of our lives will drastically change once baby Emilee arrives around Sept 21st.

It will be so interesting to see how they react to the new baby.

It might not be good….

It might be strange….

Hopefully not this strange!!  LOL  What were we thinking with this haircut??!?!?

Either way, we will let you know!
