Strawberry Surf Rider Smoothie (like Jamba's)

I am a huge fan of Jamba Juice. I love their fruit smoothies! My absolute favorite is their Strawberry Surf Rider. It's just the perfect combination of strawberries and tart lemon flavor! I love it! I've been trying to recreate it since I don't really want to pay 6 bucks for it every time I need a fix. I've fiddled around for awhile and this is as close as I've gotten. And ooooh, is it good!

Here's what you'll need:
2 1/2 c. frozen strawberries
3 large scoops of Lime or Raspberry Sherbet (I found some Pomegranate Tangerine Sherbet at my WinCo and it was SO good)
1-1 1/2 c. limeade
7-8 peach slices (I used canned peaches)

Combine all the ingredients in your blender and mix until smooth. The limeade amount will vary- you just want it to be thick enough to be smoothie, but not too runny. So start with 1 c. and add more as you need it or to get your blender to mix well.

My picky eaters loved this! As I was taking pictures, Ellie insisted that her cup be in the picture too, so there ya have it!

Love Potion

While at Emily's we decided we needed to try a bunch of new recipes. This happened to be one of them- one of the lovely finds off Pinterest. We tried a few more drinks, but this ended up being our absolute favorite! It was so good and creamy and just delicious!  And the best part, it only takes three ingredients and is super simple to make. I made this again just the other night with some Pomegranate Tangerine sherbet that I found and it was awesome!

So here ya go! Enjoy!

What you'll need:
1 can prepared Pink Lemonade
4 c. Raspberry Sherbet

Prepare the pink lemonade as directed on the can. Add four cups (about half of a half gallon is what I used) of raspberry sherbet and mix with a stick blender (or in a regular blender if you don't have a stick blender). Mix until creamy.

Pour into glasses and add some sprite. Our ration was about 3:1 (juice:sprite).
