The Worst Concoctions You Can Get From Jamba Juice

Whether you prefer your foods savory or sweet, there’s one thing everyone can agree on — smoothies are a delight. You can make them at home by tossing fruit and yogurt into a blender, or you can go the easier route by getting one of these sippable treats at Jamba Juice. And their extensive menu leaves no shortage of options. Love tropical fruits? You got it. Looking for a chocolaty smoothie? You can have that, too.

Here’s the thing, though — Jamba Juice touts that it uses fresh foods to create drinks that have a “whole lot of goodness,” but this goodness also comes with a whole lot of calories and sugar. The following are the worst offenders you’d be wise to stay far away from.

1. Peanut Butter Moo’d

Here’s the first hint this smoothie isn’t healthy — the name. Would you trust a concoction called Peanut Butter Moo’d to fit into your diet? You’re getting peanut butter, bananas, vanilla frozen yogurt, and milk chocolate in one of these — sounds more like a milkshake than a smoothie to us. And you’re also getting 770 calories, 20 grams of fat, and a whopping 109 grams of sugar in a medium. That’s several day’s worth of sugar. Just say no.
