12 NEW Low-Calorie Smoothies At Jamba Juice (2022)

If you’re trying to watch your calorie intake, it’s best to know which options are the lowest in calories at Jamba juice. 

I’ve tried and tested different Jamba Juice smoothies and compiled a list of the best low-calorie options on the menu that contain 320 calories or less (unless you order a larger size).

Also, below, I’ve given you my top tips on how to customize each smoothie to reduce the calories even further (some of which aren’t obvious by looking at the menu).

But, if you’re in a rush…

The 12 lowest-calorie smoothies at Jamba Juice are:  

  • Purely Carrot (250 calories)  
  • Orange Carrot Twist (280 calories) 
  • Vanilla Blue Sky (280 calories) 
  • Mega Mango (280 calories) 
  • Greens ‘n’ Ginger (290 calories) 
  • Strawberry Whirl (290 calories) 
  • The Go-Getter (310 calories) 
  • Orange-C Booster (310 calories) 
  • Peach Perfection (310 calories) 
  • Apple ‘n’ Greens (320 calories) 
  • Strawberries Wild (320 calories) 
  • Strawberry Surf Rider (330 calories)

Tips For Ordering Low-Calorie Smoothies At Jamba Juice

Some additional ways to lower the calories in your Jamba Juice smoothie are: 

  • Order a kids’ drink 
  • Swap the whey protein or pea protein for soy protein 
  • Ask for half a portion of peanut butter or swap it for non-fat Greek yogurt 
  • Swap the juice blends for water or soda water
  • Avoid the premium boosts

Order a Kids’ Drink 

There are two kids’ smoothies available at Jamba Juice, both of which are the lowest calorie options on the whole menu. 

You can choose from the Blueberry Strawberry Blast-Off and the Strawberries Gone Bananas, which contain 190 and 150 calories, respectively. 

Swap the Whey Protein or Pea Protein for Soy Protein 

Whey protein is available as one of the ‘Vitamin and Protein Boosts’ and contains 70 calories.

There is still some benefit to adding whey protein to your smoothie if you’re trying to keep your protein intake high. But if you want to increase the protein content of your smoothie while saving calories, opt for the soy protein add-in instead, which only has 25 calories. This will save you 45 calories per serving of protein. 

Although whey protein and soy protein contain slightly different amino acid compositions, research shows that they are equally effective at increasing lean muscle mass and strength in those who regularly perform resistance training. 

Research also shows that consuming pea protein or soy protein is just as effective at muscle growth and strength building as whey protein isolate. Therefore, pea protein is a great alternative to whey protein in your smoothie if you aren’t keen on soy. However, this will only save you 10 calories per serving. 

Ask for Half a Portion of Peanut Butter or Swap It for Non-Fat Greek Yogurt 

Peanut butter is in a few of the different Jamba Juice smoothies, such as the PB Chocolate Love and the Peanut Butter Moo’d. With 100 calories per tablespoon, the calories can easily rack up in your drink when peanut butter is added.

If you want to include peanut butter in your drink, ask for half a portion so that you are only adding 50 extra calories into your smoothie. 

Alternatively, you can swap the peanut butter for non-fat Greek yogurt, which only has 40 calories per serving. This will cut the calories while still providing you with a source of protein.

Swap the Juice Blends for Water or Soda Water

The Juice Blends at Jamba Juice contain around 120 calories per serving. Not all drinks have them, but I’ve listed the ones that do in the FAQ section below. To save calories in your smoothies, you can swap them for water or soda water.

If you want to retain some of the flavor from the Juice Blend, you could ask for an extra portion of fruit in your smoothie, which will still save you around 100 calories per drink. I provide the calorie count of the fruit add-ons below.

You can also ask for just a half serving of the Juice Blend and replace the other half with water to cut the calorie count in half.

Avoid the Premium Boosts

The Premium Boosts include the Orange Boba, Strawberry Boba, and Tapioca Boba which contain 210 calories each. 

If you want to save calories while adding extra nutrition and flavor to your Jamba Juice smoothie, go for the frozen fruit and veg options instead of the premium boosts.

I’ve listed the calorie content of each fruit and veg add-in per drink (regardless of size) that is available at Jamba Juice below.

Jamba Juice Low-Calorie Smoothies   

1. Purely Carrot (250 calories for a medium-sized drink) 

Purely Carrot (250 calories for a medium-sized drink)

With just one ingredient, the Purely Carrot is already very low in calories and there are very few modifications that you can make to this drink to reduce the calories even further. If you want to minimize your calorie intake as much as possible, go for the small serving, which has 180 calories. 

Ingredients 

  • Fresh juiced carrot 

Calories 

  • Small – 180 calories 
  • Medium – 250 calories

2. Orange Carrot Twist (280 calories for a medium-sized drink) 

Orange Carrot Twist (280 calories for a medium-sized drink) 

The Orange Carrot Twist is another low-calorie option that has minimal ingredients, making it difficult to change anything and adjust the calorie content. The small option has just 200 calories while the medium option has 280 calories. 

The addition of the orange juice provides lots of vitamin C, which is essential for a strong immune system, and the carrot juice contains high levels of vitamin A, which can promote healthy hair, nails, and skin. 

Ingredients 

  • Fresh orange juice 
  • Fresh juiced carrot 

Calories 

  • Small – 200 calories 
  • Medium – 280 calories 

3. Vanilla Blue Sky (280 calories for a medium-sized drink) 

Vanilla Blue Sky (280 calories for a medium-sized drink)

With a stunning blue color thanks to the spirulina boost, the Vanilla Blue Sky contains a delicious blend of plant-based milk and fruit to provide you with a low-calorie, nutrient-dense smoothie. 

To cut the calories in this smoothie even more, ask to swap the vanilla coconut milk for a second serving of almond milk. This will save you around 50 calories per cup. Although swapping unsweetened almond milk for sweetened coconut milk will decrease the sweetness of the smoothie, the natural sugars in the bananas and pineapples will maintain the sweet flavor of the smoothie. 

Ingredients  

  • Unsweetened almond milk 
  • Vanilla coconut milk 
  • Bananas 
  • Pineapples 
  • Blue spirulina boost 

Calories 

  • Small – 200 calories 
  • Medium – 280 calories 

4. Mega Mango (280 calories for a medium-sized drink) 

Mega Mango (280 calories for a medium-sized drink)

The Mega Mango contains a sweet blend of four different fruits. It has under 300 calories and is a great option if you want to keep the calories to a minimum.

To reduce the calories in the Mega Mango, ask for it without either the pineapple or orange juice. This will remove 111-117 calories per cup of juice. Just be sure that they don’t add an extra portion of the other juice you choose to leave in, which will negate the calorie-decreasing effects of getting the drink without one type of juice.

If you’re concerned about losing some of the nutritional value in the juice, add in the daily vitamin zinc boost, which contains just 15 calories. 

Ingredients  

  • Pineapple juice 
  • Orange juice 
  • Mangos 
  • Strawberries 

Calories 

  • Small – 190 calories 
  • Medium – 280 calories 

5. Greens ‘n’ Ginger (290 calories for a medium-sized drink) 

Greens ‘n’ Ginger (290 calories for a medium-sized drink) 

The Greens ‘n’ Ginger is perfect for the health-conscious people out there. It’s full of flavor and nutrition, and contains just 290 calories. Ginger is known to reduce inflammation, improve insulin sensitivity, and improve digestion.

If you want to lower the calories in the Greens ‘n’ Ginger, ask to swap the lemonade for water. Lemonade contains 96 calories and around 25 grams of sugar per cup, so you could save a significant number of calories by asking for this simple swap. 

If you enjoy carbonated drinks like lemonade, ask for soda water so you still get the fizziness in your smoothie.

Ingredients  

  • Lemonade 
  • Peaches 
  • Kale 
  • Mangos 
  • Ginger 

Calories 

  • Small – 230 calories 
  • Medium – 290 calories 

6. Strawberry Whirl (290 calories for a medium-sized drink) 

Strawberry Whirl (290 calories for a medium-sized drink) 

The Strawberry Whirl is a fruity, sweet smoothie that is relatively low in calories compared to many of the other Jamba Juice smoothies. 

But if you want to save as many calories as possible, I recommend switching the strawberry juice blend out for another serving of natural, whole strawberries. This will save you around 100 calories per serving.  

Ingredients  

  • Apple  
  • Pear 
  • Strawberry juice blend 
  • Strawberries 
  • Bananas 

Calories 

  • Small – 200 calories 
  • Medium – 290 calories 

7. The Go Getter (310 calories for a medium-sized drink) 

The Go Getter (310 calories for a medium-sized drink) 

The Go Getter is packed full of nutrition. The matcha and added caffeine provide an energy boost, while the fruits and vegetables contain a range of micronutrients such as vitamin A and vitamin K that are essential for reproductive health and blood clotting. 

To cut the calories with the Go Getter, swap the vegetables and fruit juice blend for another serving of fresh kale. Each serving of kale contains just 5 calories, so you can save around 100 calories by making the switch. 

Ingredients  

  • Matcha green tea 
  • Vegetables and fruit juice blend 
  • Mangos 
  • Kale 
  • Orange juice 
  • Caffeine 175mg (small), 210mg (medium), 281mg (large) 

Calories 

  • Small – 260 calories 
  • Medium – 310 calories 

8. Orange-C Booster (310 calories for a medium-sized drink) 

Orange-C Booster (310 calories for a medium-sized drink)

The Orange-C Booster does exactly what it says. It boosts your vitamin C levels because it contains a range of fruits that are high in this particular nutrient, which is vital for collagen protein production in the body. 

To reduce the calories in this smoothie, ask to swap the banana for fresh strawberries. This will save around 20 calories per serving without compromising the nutritional content of the drink. 

Ingredients  

  • Orange juice 
  • Orange sherbet 
  • Peaches 
  • Bananas 
  • Daily vitamin + zinc boost 

Calories 

  • Small – 230 calories 
  • Medium – 310 calories 

9. Peach Perfection (310 calories for a medium-sized drink) 

Peach Perfection (310 calories for a medium-sized drink)

If you enjoy peach flavors but you’re on a weight loss journey, you can order the Peach Perfection at Jamba Juice.

Ordering it without the strawberry juice blend will save around 140-150 calories per serving, but you will still get the deliciously sweet peach flavor. 

Ingredients  

  • White grape/pear/peach juice blend 
  • Mangos 
  • Peaches 
  • Apple 
  • Strawberry juice blend 
  • Strawberries 

Calories 

  • Small – 200 calories 
  • Medium – 310 calories 

10. Apple ‘n’ Greens (320 calories for a medium-sized drink) 

Apple ‘n’ Greens (320 calories for a medium-sized drink)

If you’re looking to lower the calories in the Apples ‘n’ Greens smoothie, ask for a split cup. This means your smoothie will come in two half servings. Share the smoothie with your partner or friend so that you are only consuming half of the total calories. 

Ingredients  

  • Apple/pear/strawberry juice blend 
  • Kale 
  • Mangos 
  • Bananas 
  • Peaches 

Calories 

  • Small – 250 calories 
  • Medium – 320 calories 

11. Strawberries Wild (320 calories for a medium-sized drink) 

Strawberries Wild (320 calories for a medium-sized drink) 

For those of you who love strawberry-flavored smoothies but want to keep the calories below 200, go for the kids’ version of the Strawberry Wild, which is called Strawberries Gone Bananas. 

Compared to the higher calories in the adult version, the kids’ version contains just 150 calories but still has the same delicious blend of strawberries and bananas. 

Ingredients  

  • Apple pear strawberry juice blend 
  • Fat free vanilla frozen yogurt 
  • Strawberries 
  • Bananas 

Calories 

  • Small – 230 calories 
  • Medium – 320 calories 

12. Strawberry Surf Rider (330 calories for a medium-sized drink) 

Strawberry Surf Rider (330 calories for a medium-sized drink) 

If the sound of the Strawberry Surf Rider gets your taste buds going but you’re not keen on consuming up to 430 calories in your smoothie, there’s an easy swap that you can make. Switch the lemonade lime sherbet for soda water or sparkling water and a slice of lime and lemon. 

Making this simple swap will save you 110 calories and 21 grams of sugar per cup, but you will still get the fizzy, citrus flavor in your drink. 

Ingredients  

  • Lemonade lime sherbet 
  • Strawberries 
  • Peaches

Calories 

  • Small – 240 calories 
  • Medium – 330 calories
