20 Best Jamba Juice Menu Items, Ranked
Jamba Juice was founded in California in 1990 with a single goal in mind: to make eating better, easier, and more fun. More than 30 years later, the chain is a top dog in the smoothie and juice world.
From classic smoothies like the Strawberries Wild and Caribbean Passion to nutrient-packed drinks with kale and matcha, Jamba is like the choose-your-own-adventure of juice shops.
Each smoothie comes with a free “boost,” with options like whey or soy protein, 3G energy, and zinc.
You also have the option to add different fruits when ordering your smoothie or sherbet or frozen yogurt for some texture and creaminess.
With many smoothies to choose from and a seemingly limitless array of add-ins and boosts, the Jamba Juice menu can be a bit daunting at first glance. But don’t worry – I’ve got you covered!
Today, I’ll go through the 20 best Jamba Juice smoothie flavors and rank them from worst to best.
Now, without further ado, let’s get started!
20. Matcha Green Tea Blast
I’m kicking off my countdown of the best Jamba Juice smoothies with the Matcha Green Tea Blast.
I’ve tried many times to enjoy the taste of matcha, but I just can’t.
This smoothie made it onto my list because I know a few matcha lovers who say the Matcha Green Tea Blast is great.
It’s made with soy milk, fat-free vanilla frozen yogurt, and matcha green tea.
If you’re not a huge fan of the taste of earthy matcha, the good news is froyo and soy milk definitely cover it up a little.
That being said, if you do love matcha, you might think it doesn’t have enough of that flavor.
A medium Matcha Green Tea Blast Smoothie contains 410 calories.
19. The Go-Getter
The Go-Getter is a matcha-based smoothie that has a lot going on.
It’s made with matcha green tea, a vegetable and fruit juice blend, mangos, kale, and orange juice.
Despite all the ingredients this drink features, its main flavors are mango and matcha.
The sweet, tropical notes from the mango tame that grassy matcha flavor a bit, which is why I prefer the Go-Getter to the Matcha Green Tea Blast.
Plus, with 210 mg of caffeine in a medium smoothie, this drink will definitely kickstart your day!
A medium Go-Getter Smoothie contains 310 calories.
18. Orange C Booster
The Orange C Booster isn’t bad by any means, but it’s a little basic.
It’s made with orange juice, orange sherbet, peaches, bananas, and a daily vitamin and zinc boost.
Needless to say, fans of oranges will love this smoothie.
The orange sherbet makes the drink a little on the overly sweet side, but the frozen bananas and peaches keep it from tasting too artificially sugary.
That extra zinc boost for the immune system gives this smoothie an extra point.
A medium Orange C Booster Smoothie contains 310 calories.
17. Protein Berry Workout (Soy or Whey)
Like the Orange C Booster, the Protein Berry Workout Smoothie is just a little boring.
It’s made with vanilla soy milk, strawberries, bananas, and your choice of soy or whey protein.
The soy milk adds a subtle vanilla flavor and a little creaminess to the overall texture of this smoothie.
The banana is just as strong as the strawberry here, so I think the name is slightly misleading.
That being said, the combo of banana and strawberry in a smoothie is as classic as it gets, so the Protein Berry Workout will appeal to many, especially those looking to increase their protein intake.
A medium Protein Berry Workout Smoothie contains 390 calories.
16. Strawberries Wild
The Strawberries Wild Smoothie is made with apple pear strawberry juice, fat-free vanilla frozen yogurt, strawberries, and bananas.
The froyo lends major creaminess to this smoothie, making the texture closer to a milkshake.
The apple pear strawberry juice is sweet but not overly so.
The flavors of pear and apple keep it from tasting like any old strawberry banana smoothie.
A medium Strawberries Wild Smoothie contains 320 calories.
15. PB + Banana Protein (Soy or Whey)
Now, we’re getting to the first Jamba Juice smoothie that’s more like a milkshake than a smoothie (in my opinion.)
The PB + Banana Protein Smoothie is made with 2% milk, bananas, peanut butter, honey, and your choice of soy or whey protein.
Bananas, peanut butter, and milk make this drink ultra-creamy and rich.
The honey adds some natural sweetness, but the peanut butter has just enough salt to balance the whole thing.
A medium PB + Banana Protein Smoothie with soy contains 530 calories.
14. Acai Super-Antioxidant
Acai has been the “it” fruit for the last couple of years, thanks to the popularity of acai bowls.
Acai berries are sweet, tart, and jam-packed with antioxidants.
The Acai Super-Antioxidant Smoothie is made with soy milk, acai grape juice, strawberries, blueberries, raspberry sherbet, and a daily vitamin and zinc boost.
This smoothie has that classic mixed berry flavor, and none of the single fruit flavors stand out.
They all blend nicely for a fruity, refreshing sip.
A medium Acai Super-Antioxidant Smoothie contains 430 calories.
The Razzmatazz is one of the most-ordered smoothies on the Jamba Juice menu.
This is because its ingredients are simple and appeal to most customers.
It’s made with orange sherbet, strawberries, bananas, and grape pear berry juice.
Similar to the Acai Super-Antioxidant smoothie, no one fruit flavor outshines the rest.
The Razzmatazz tastes more like an equal blend of bananas, strawberries, and oranges.
So, if you assumed this would be a raspberry-based smoothie (like I did), just be warned that it won’t feature that flavor as predominantly as you might hope.
A medium Razzmatazz Smoothie contains 350 calories.
12. Apples n’ Greens
Don’t let the dark green coloring of this smoothie trick you! It looks like it will taste earthy, but the Apples n’ Greens Smoothie is actually sweet and delicious.
It is made with an apple-pear strawberry juice blend, kale, mangos, bananas, and peaches.
Its predominant flavor is definitely apple, with bananas and peaches as more of a whisper in the background.
I love kale, but I don’t particularly want to taste it in my smoothies.
Luckily, the kale flavor is almost completely covered up by the stronger fruit flavors here.
Plus, this smoothie is completely plant-based.
A medium Apples n’ Greens Smoothie contains 320 calories.
11. Pomegranate Paradise
Just like the Apples n’ Greens, the Pomegranate Paradise Smoothie is completely plant-based.
As far as Jamba Juice smoothie flavors go, this is definitely one of the more crisp and refreshing options on the menu.
With a mix of apple pear pomegranate juice, mangoes, strawberries, and peaches, it has a tropical fruit punch flavor to it.
The tartness of the apple pear pomegranate juice makes for a smoothie that’s not quite sour but is less sugary than most other smoothies – in a good way.
A medium Pomegranate Paradise Smoothie contains 320 calories.
10. Peanut Butter Moo’d
Now, we’re getting into the territory of “smoothies” with quotation marks. Meaning I’m not completely sure if this can technically be called a smoothie.
While absolutely delicious, the Peanut Butter Moo’d Smoothie is the least healthy item on Jamba Juice’s menu.
It is made with fat-free vanilla frozen yogurt, vanilla soy milk, 2% milk, bananas, peanut butter, and a chocolate dairy base.
As you can gather from that list of ingredients, this drink is mostly dairy, which, in my opinion, makes it a milkshake.
Technicalities aside, the Peanut Butter Moo’d is creamy, rich, and strikes a great balance between peanut butter and chocolate.
The addition of banana brings some freshness to the drink and makes it a bit lighter overall.
A medium Peanut Butter Moo’d Smoothie contains 730 calories.
9. Strawberry Surf Rider
The Strawberry Surf Rider can best be described as a classic strawberry smoothie with beachy, tropical undertones.
It’s made with lemonade, lime sherbet, peaches, and of course, strawberries.
The strawberries and peaches are super sweet, but the lime sherbet and lemonade bring a citrusy tang, which is much needed.
This drink is slightly more sour than most other smoothies on the menu, but that’s not a bad thing.
In fact, I wish more smoothies had the lemonade/ lime sherbet combo.
A medium Strawberry Surf Rider Smoothie contains 330 calories.
8. Vanilla Blue Sky
The Vanilla Blue Sky is not only one of the prettiest Jamba Juice smoothies but also a newer creation on the menu.
Its seemingly unnaturally bright hue is perfectly natural, thanks to blue spirulina, an alga that is rich in vitamins, protein, and antioxidants.
Besides blue spirulina, this smoothie is made with unsweetened almond milk, vanilla coconut milk, bananas, and pineapples.
The pineapple and coconut flavors give the drink a pina colada vibe, but it’s a little more watery than most other smoothies on this list.
I think that has to do with the fact that there are two different plant-based milks and only two fruits inside.
That being said, this is a great option for anyone who wants a toned-down tropical treat.
It also doesn’t hurt that it’s pretty to look at!
A medium Vanilla Blue Sky Smoothie contains 280 calories.
7. Aloha Pineapple
The Aloha Pineapple Smoothie is another tropically inclined drink made with pineapple sherbet, pineapple juice, strawberries, bananas, and nonfat Greek yogurt.
This is the perfect smoothie to order if your favorite fruit happens to be a pineapple.
It’s super refreshing, and the addition of Greek yogurt gives a subtle creaminess and hint of tang.
The pineapple sherbet definitely adds a lot of sweetness, but the bananas and strawberries tame down that sweetness with their more natural-tasting sugars.
A medium Aloha Pineapple Smoothie contains 360 calories.
6. Electric Berry Lemonade
If you thought the Vanilla Blue Sky was bright, wait until you see the Electric Berry Lemonade Smoothie.
This bad boy is vividly purple in hue and has a unique flavor profile compared to all other smoothies we’ve discussed thus far.
It is made with lemonade (of course), strawberries, peaches, a grape pear berry juice blend, fat-free vanilla frozen yogurt, raspberry sherbet, and blue spirulina.
It sounds like there’s a lot going on here because, frankly, there is.
Overall, it tastes like a mixed berry lemonade with some hints of vanilla.
There’s no single fruit flavor that stands out above the others, but it’s a delicious smoothie.
It’s got just the right hint of tartness, which keeps the drink from being overly sweet.
Plus, the hints of grape, pear, and peach give it unique notes that the other smoothies on the Jamba Juice menu don’t have.
A medium Electric Berry Lemonade Smoothie contains 360 calories.
5. PB Chocolate Love
Like the Peanut Butter Moo’d, the PB Chocolate Love might not be considered a smoothie to some purists out there.
This drink is made with 2% milk, bananas, peanut butter, and a chocolate dairy base.
It’s quite similar to the aforementioned Peanut Butter Moo’d but contains far less dairy and is less creamy.
The peanut butter and chocolate flavors are more prevalent than bananas in this smoothie, but the banana is still there.
It adds some natural creaminess that will leave you satisfied but not feel like you just drank melted ice cream.
Even though no one wants a smoothie that tastes salty, the peanut butter adds just enough saltiness to each sip, so you’re not overwhelmed by sugar.
A medium PB Chocolate Love Smoothie contains 670 calories.
4. Orange Dream Machine
If you loved orange creamsicles as a kid, I have good news for you: the Orange Dream Machine is a smoothie version of that.
It is made with orange juice, orange sherbet, vanilla soy milk, and fat-free vanilla frozen yogurt.
While it’s certainly not the healthiest smoothie on Jamba Juice’s menu, it’s absolutely delicious!
Jamba Juice nails the ratio of vanilla to orange flavoring, and the frozen yogurt adds just enough creaminess to make the drink feel like the perfect combination of a smoothie and a milkshake.
If you enjoy classic flavors like vanilla but also enjoy citrusy, tangy notes, this is a great option.
A medium Orange Dream Machine Smoothie contains 420 calories.
3. Caribbean Passion
The Caribbean Passion Smoothie is another tropical offering from Jamba Juice.
Its base is a juice made up of pears, white grapes, mangos, oranges, and passion fruit.
Then, orange sherbet, strawberries, and peaches are blended into the juice.
The standout flavors in this drink are peach, mango, strawberry, and orange.
In my opinion, it’s the most refreshing option on the Jamba Juice smoothie menu, with the perfect balance of sweet and sour flavors.
Similar to some of the smoothies we’ve already discussed, the more subtle fruit flavors like pear and passion fruit blend into the background, but you can still taste hints of them in some sips.
This is a popular option among customers because its flavors are familiar and made of fruits we all associate with summer.
Who wouldn’t want a taste of the tropics every once in a while?
A medium Caribbean Passion Smoothie contains 330 calories.
We’ve reached the number two spot on the list, and I had to give this title to Mango-A-Go-Go.
Not only is it one of the most-ordered smoothies on the Jamba Juice menu, but it’s also a perfect drink to get if you have no idea what you’ll like.
With a juice blend of pears, white grapes, mangos, oranges, and passion fruit, the base of the smoothie already features multiple fruit flavors.
Then, mangoes and pineapple sherbet are added to the mix.
You won’t be shocked to find out that mango is the main flavor in this smoothie, with pineapple coming in at a close second. It’s a tropical drink with citrus notes.
Many smoothies can fall into the trap of tasting too sugary, but this one doesn’t. The sherbet also makes it extra thick and filling.
A medium Mango-A-Go-Go c Smoothie contains 390 calories.
1. White Gummi
My number one pick for the best Jamba Juice smoothie may be a little controversial, but I’m confident in my decision – the White Gummi Smoothie reigns supreme!
It used to be available exclusively on Jamba Juice’s secret menu, but it became so popular that they made it a permanent menu item.
This smoothie is meant to resemble the flavor of a white gummy bear.
White gummy bears typically have a tropical flavor, and Haribo’s, in particular, are pineapple flavored.
The drink is made with a juice blend of white grapes, pears, and peaches. It also includes pineapple, orange, raspberry, and lime sherbets.
Finally, it’s finished off with mangoes and vanilla soy milk.
Okay, I know that sounds like a lot, but when all these flavors are combined, they really do taste like a white gummy bear.
It’s extra thick, thanks to all that sherbet. The soy milk also adds just a hint of vanilla flavor to balance all those fruit flavors.
Pineapple and peach are the flavors that shine through the most in this drink, which is a refreshing and fun combination.
The White Gummi Smoothie definitely has that sweet and sour candy taste, but it isn’t overly sweet and still tastes natural.
If you’re not sure what to order on your next trip to Jamba Juice, definitely consider the White Gummi!
A medium White Gummi Smoothie contains 450 calories.
Although Jamba Juice has also started venturing into the world of baked goods and breakfast sandwiches, its iconic smoothies continue to dominate the menu.
All smoothies can be customized to your liking, and you can add extra protein or supplements to meet your dietary goals.
Whether you’re looking for a dessert-like drink or something healthy to kickstart your day, there’s a smoothie on the Jamba Juice menu that’ll meet your needs.
So the next time you stop by Jamba, try one of the delicious smoothie flavors on our list!
