Sneaking Whole Grains Into Fruit Filled Jamba Juice Smoothies {Giveaway}

About a month ago I shared how Quaker fuels my family and is a great way to start the day. I recently learned that Jamba Juice now offers Quaker-branded whole grain boosts in their smoothies so people who drink their smoothies can get a boost of whole grains throughout the day. One Quaker-boost in a delicious, whole fruit smoothie offers one full serving of whole grains and only costs an extra 50 cents. I was intrigued so I headed to Jamba Juice today to try one with a gift card that Jamba Juice sent me.

I had only been to Jamba Juice once before so I asked the cashier which flavors were the most popular. He said the Mango one was good and people really liked the Tropical one (Caribbean Passion), too. I’m more of a berry person but I decided to go with his recommendation and try a tropical smoothie with the Quaker boost.

I wasn’t sure what to expect with a boost of Quaker whole grains in the smoothie. I was thinking maybe it would have a texture of drinkable oatmeal and I didn’t think that sounded too appetizing mixed with the fruit.

To my delight I took a sip and discovered that it tasted like sherbert mixed with a glass of orange juice. The texture was thick and had a consistency somewhere between a milkshake and frozen yogurt. If I hadn’t ordered it myself I would have never guessed that it had the whole grains in it.

Overall, I really enjoyed my Jamba Juice smoothie and look forward to going back with my kids. The boys would think I took them out for dessert not knowing that they were getting fruit and whole grains in their “treat”. I think the boosts that Jamba Juice offers are perfect for those who want to be healthy but want to eat healthy items that taste good at the same time.
