How do I recreate a Jamba Juice in my kitchen?

I'm a Jamba Juice addict, and get smoothies there constantly. I want to cut out the middleman and start making the same smoothies at home.
1) How can I get their recipes? They're posted in plain sight for the employees, so I'd think someone would have posted them online by now, but I haven't been able to find them. Failing that, what's another good resource for recipes?
2) Suggestions on what blender to use? My JJ uses Vita-Mix blenders, but I've also heard good things about BlendTec blenders.
3) Any tips on how/where to get good juice and frozen fruit cheaply? Time is not necessarily a factor, so I'm open to juicing al the fruit myself, but I assume that would be tough to do well (or maybe require expensive machinery).
