Smoothies are such a great snack, especially as the months get hotter and kid’s attention span and want to sit down and eat gets shorter. The kids love to spend most of the day digging in the dirt outside so sitting down for a snack isn’t always an option.
I love to be able to throw some fruit into a blender and make a tasty, refreshing, not to mention healthy, snack! It’s also one of the best ways I am able to get my kids to finish their fruit that they should eat. Maybe even some vegetables but shhh they don’t know that! They especially love this Jamba Juice copycat recipe!
Bananas and strawberries are their favorite fruits, and mine too! That’s even just about all you’ll need for this recipe! Add in a little greek yogurt, pineapple, and ice and you have yourself a super delicious and healthy smoothie.
We have a lot of other great smoothie recipes that you should try out and have on hand for summer. Take a look at our easy tropical smoothie recipe, piña colada fruit smoothie recipe, or even a little extra healthy our piña colada green smoothie recipe. I love them all! I always make sure my house is stocked with tons of fruit during the summer to keep the smoothies coming!
Everything you need to make this easy healthy smoothie recipe can be found listed below:
Healthy smoothie ingredients:
- Crushed ice

This is also essential for this Jamba Juice copycat recipe:

Get ready for the easiest instructions for this Aloha pineapple smoothie!
So just like with any other smoothie recipe, you are just going to throw everything in the blender and turn it on!
Have the blender go until you reach the consistency you like. You may want to add some water or unsweetened almond milk, or any other liquid of your choice if the Aloha pineapple smoothie isn’t the thickness you like.
PRO TIP: I always try to put the softer or liquidity ingredients at the bottom to make it a little easier for the blender. I’ve had the better success that way.
Smoothies for on the go

For me, smoothies are a great way to get added nutrients for myself and my kids. This Jamba Juice Aloha copycat recipe is a great smoothie recipe for kids! However, if you want to try and sneak some more veggies or protein have at it! Here are some ideas to try:
- Hemp seed (THIS is a great brand)

*By adding these it will change the taste from the original Jamba juice copycat recipe depending on what you add.*
