Jamba Juice's Blackberry Bliss?

I can't claim this is exact, but I don't think you'll miss the resemblance in flavor when you try it. The Blackberry Bliss is my husband's favorite at Jamba right now, so we had to give it a whirl at home. Plus, what's better is that it's WAY healthier! Thanks to the spinach and ground flax (which you won't notice!), you won't even feel guilty slurping this baby down!

First, puree the following in your blender:
2 cups spinach
1/2 cup water

Add the following, and begin pulsing.
1 1/2 cups frozen strawberries
1/2 cups frozen mixed berries
6 blackberries
1/2 cup pineapple
1/4 cup yogurt
1/4 cup sugar (plus a couple of Tablespoons, depending on how sweet you like it.)
3 Tablespoons ground flax

Lastly, add water and blend to get the smoothie to the right consistency (I'll say about 3/4 cup, added gradually. But that will depend on whether all of your fruit was frozen or not.)

Let me know what you think!

Maybe this will help negate all the nutella I've eaten lately...

I CAN'T WAIT TO TRY THIS!!! Jamba is my FAVORITE!!! It is all I lived off of when I was pregnant with Caitlyne. I'm going to show this post to my dad so he'll go pick up all the items so we can make this! He is a health nut, but he also loves Jamba. Maybe I can work this to my advantage!

I can't believe you conceal two cups of spinach in this! You are amazing.
