Now you can whip up one of the seasons' most popular smoothies right at home. Jamba Juice's creation blends pureed pumpkin, vanilla frozen yogurt and soy milk. It's like drinking pumpkin pie through a straw... Our home version too is very rich tasting with just the right amount of spice added. The skinny on ours for a 16 ounce serving is 315 calories. A 16 ounce Jamba has 390 calories. So we're saving about 75 calories for the same serving size. Ours has 18 grams of sugar and Jamba's has 75! This simple smoothie is wonderful for the entire family as a breakfast or afternoon snack but it taste good enough for dessert. So, get out the blender and give this delightful smoothie a whirl?
