Pumpkin Smash Clone

We LOVE smoothies.  We love pumpkin and we love Jamba Juice’s Pumpkin Smash Smoothie.  The problem is, it’s only available in the fall and smoothies are often best on a nice hot summer day.  We love pumpkin so much we eat it pretty much year round.  Now we can enjoy a Pumpkin Smash Smoothie anytime we want!  YAY!  Here’s how we do it our Ninja Blender shown below.

Ninja™ NJ600 Professional Blender

You will need ice, pumpkin pie mix (use the mix don’t do it your own with fresh pumpkin or any of that), soy milk and frozen  yogurt.  Jamba Juice uses plain vanilla fro you.  We prefer caramel macadamia nut.

Now…empty and entire ice-cube tray into the blender, next a couple scoops of frozen yogurt, then half a large can of pumpkin pie mix and finally a little soy milk and blend.  Here’s what the ones we just made look like:

It’s important to note that you MUST use pumpkin pie mix.  We have tried it with canned pumpkin and our own spices and it didn’t taste good at all.  We’ve tried it with fresh pumpkin and all our own spices too and it’s better but still not great.  Today’s batch was a little thin and we used 2% milk instead of soy milk.  I don’t think there’s any real taste difference so will probably just use regular milk going forward.  Enjoy!
