Copycat Jamba Juice Chunky Strawberry Bowl

349 cal, 38C/20F/10P/17S.

OK, this thing is a Treat. This is not my usual breakfast trust me, the sugar to protein ratio is way too high. However, I do get nostalgic about having one of these bowls every now and then so I will make it and treat myself. Especially when it’s strawberry season!

I think I first had this Jamba Juice strawberry bowl when I was an engineering intern at Google NYC circa 2012. Boston doesn’t have that many Jamba Juice’s unfortunately but they have one every street/avenue in Manhattan. The strawberry bowl is chunky. It is peanut buttery. Banana-ey, starberry-ey. They even stuck granola in it! Anything I don’t like? Nope.

So here, with a little Google’ing around, a homemade version whenever you want one, without leaving the comfort of your own kitchen!

Ingredients:

  • 1 ripe banana, fresh or frozen
  • 1 cup chopped strawberries, fresh or frozen
  • 1/3 cup any granola you like
  • 1/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk

Serves 2. Put everything in a food processor, pulse to combine without letting it get all smooth (it’s a chunky bowl, right?) and serve immediately. Optionally top with more granola and banana/strawberry slices.

Hope you enjoy this breakfast treat and tag @200isPlentySweet on instagram with your pictures!

Hi I'm Elif! I'm a mama, computer science PhD and Google engineer by day, food blogger by night. I love beautiful desserts that not only taste amazing, but also leave you feeling amazing. I use my math skills and interest in nutrition to carefully optimize my recipes to use simple, good-for-you ingredients and minimal amount of added sugar. I believe that healthy desserts can be simple. Recipes should not send you searching for rare ingredients, untested sweeteners or measuring ridiculous 1/2 tsp of butter. Here we use few ingredients, basic measuring cups, spoons, and simple fruit, veg, little sugar and syrup as sweeteners. Most recipes here use so little added sugar that they're good enough for toddlers. I also believe that you should be able to fit healthy sweets into your daily routine. No matter how much almond flour and coconut oil is in a healthy dessert recipe, there's no way I'm going to ingest a meal's worth of energy and a day's worth of total sugar from dessert alone. And that is the reason all my desserts have less than 200 cal per serving and are low-sugar. So now will you join us?
