That heavy Thanksgiving Day feast got you wanting something much lighter and looser on the belt buckle to carry you through the holiday season? Then check out Jamba Juice Hawaii, now offering for a limited time, their new “Holi-YAY!” lineup of flavors. This includes the Apple Pie Crunch Bowl, “Apple Pie” Steel Cut Oatmeal, and Apple Cinnamon Cheer.
The Apple Pie Crunch Bowl features an ice cold smoothie base made of Jamba’s Apple Cinnamon, Apple-Strawberry juice, Cinnamon and frozen Yogurt, topped with almonds, chia seeds, brown sugar crumble, cinnamon and granola.
The “Apple Pie” Steel Cut Oatmeal is another bowl style item, this one served hot. It’s made of steel cut oatmeal and soymilk, topped with Jamba’s apple cinnamon and brown sugar crumble.
Rounding it up, there’s the Apple & Cinnamon Cheer, a traditional smoothie drink made using the same base as the Apple Pie Crunch Bowl. Again, that would be Jamba’s Apple Cinnamon, apple-strawberry juice, cinnamon and frozen yogurt, while in this format it’s simply dusted on top with more cinnamon.
Above we have a closer look at the Apple Pie Crunch Bowl and Apple & Cinnamon Cheer smoothie.
Also a closer view of the “Apple Pie” Steel Cut Oatmeal bowl, along with the actual container you’d receive it in to the left with again, the Apple Pie Crunch Bowl.
Above we have my sample of the Apple Pie Crunch Bowl, which I already knew would be my fave of the three before even trying it because of all them yummy toppings. And? Fantastic! It really comes across as a true hybrid Apple Pie Smoothie! All the flavors and textures are there of both, all in one handy-dandy bowl!
The “Apple Pie” Steel Cut Oatmeal honestly less resemblance to Apple Pie — which I would have preferred — mainly because of the lack of toasty flavor and crunch from the granola, almonds and chia seeds offered in the other bowl. However it’s still a heart-warming bowl of breakfast goodness that I was still diggin’.
The Apple & Cinnamon Cheer is a refreshing and delicious holiday-inspired smoothie that I could certainly drink a whole blender’s worth if given the chance. While I understand this is supposed to be light and health-inspired, I’m kinda’ curious how it would taste if you added egg nog to it. Whatever the case, it’s great the way it is, and I highly recommend trying it.
Above is Jamba Juice’ BlendTec blender and the six ingredients that make up the base for two of these three new items.
