This Jamba Juice Copycat is a favorite — Caribbean Passion Smoothie is made with passion fruit juice, a blend of frozen fruit, ice, and orange sherbet. Try some of our other dessert smoothies next, such as this Jamba Juice Strawberry Wild or this Strawberry Piña Colada. Caribbean Passion Smoothie This tropical smoothie combines so many good fruit flavors — passionfruit, mango, peaches, strawberries, and orange. It’s intensely fruity, very sweet, and ultra thick. Just like you expect from Jamba Juice®, you can expect from this recipe! We love being able to re-create our favorite smoothies from the comfort of home and this Caribbean Passion Smoothie is typically the most frequently made — it’s my boys’ favorite! Caribbean Passion Smoothie Ingredients Passion fruit juice. See the picture above for the exact juice we use in these smoothies. It’s a juice cocktail of three fruit juices and we find the flavor to be very similar to Jamba’s Caribbean Passion Smoothie. Jamba’s recipe uses a pear-white grape-mango-orange-passion fruit juice blend, so if you find a juice with some of those fruits in it, you should be good. Focus on finding a juice with passion fruit and mango, since those are the stand-out flavors in the smoothie that lend the tropical flavor. Orange sherbet. Sherbet is not quite ice cream and not quite sorbet. It contains fruit and water (like sorbet) but also has buttermilk, cream, or milk (like ice cream). This gives it a slightly creamier texture than sorbet. However, if you need a dairy-free treat, orange sorbet (or mango sorbet) works great in this recipe as well! Vanilla frozen yogurt can also be used in a pinch, but the flavor is less tropical. Frozen strawberries, frozen mango, and frozen peaches. We want to use frozen (not fresh) fruit to ensure this smoothie is ultra thick as well as very cold. Ice. Ice helps cool down this smoothie and contributes to the thick consistency. Any ice works, but if you have pebble ice, it does blend up really nicely. QUICK TIP I sometimes purchase rainbow sherbet (instead of plain orange sherbet) and scoop out the orange sherbet for this recipe then use the other two sherbet flavors for different smoothies or desserts. Caribbean Passion Smoothie Tips When measuring the frozen fruit, pack it into a measuring cup to get an accurate measurement. It’s helpful to add liquids into the blender first with frozen fruit and ice on top. This can help avoid blender cavitation. To get a thick smoothie consistency, you’ll want to use a high-powered blender. Be patient, since the majority of the ingredients are frozen. Stir in between blending bursts if needed. While it might seem silly to actually measure out the ingredients for this smoothie (instead of just eye-balling and throwing everything in), I do recommend measuring ingredients the first few times you make this Caribbean Passion Smoothie. Throwing random ingredients in a blender can often end up giving you way too much smoothie or the beverage can end up tasting off. Storage/Leftovers I recommend drinking this Caribbean Passion Smoothie all in one sitting, preferably right after making it. This smoothie doesn’t sit or store well as the ingredients quickly begin to separate and the thick smoothie consistency is lost. If you’re uncertain it will all get finished in one sitting, I recommend halving the recipe — this drink is very forgiving as quantities are cut down.
