GIRLS BITE OUT
We're ALWAYS telling you what to avoid at Jamba, but we decided to give
some of their lighter fruity blended "Enlightened Smoothies" a whirl. Here's
what we found...
Passion Berry Breeze
(16 oz. - 150 calories, 0g fat, 210mg sodium, 32g carbs, 2g fiber, 28g
sugars, 6g protein = 3 Points)
What they say: A tempting whirl of passionfruit, mangos, strawberries,
peaches, lower calorie dairy base and ice.
What we say: We were excited about this one based on the description, but
we're not gonna lie, it was slightly disappointing and very sour. Is there a
chance that with sweeter fruit it would have been better? Sure. But we didn't
take any chances, we added a packet of Splenda to it, and immediately the
taste improved by 25%. This one was definitely more icy than creamy.
Overall score: 7. It was our least favorite.
(16 oz. - 160 calories, 0g fat, 230mg sodium, 34g carbs, 3g fiber, 29g
sugars, 6g protein = 3 Points)
What they say: The much-celebrated karma of fresh strawberries and
bananas come together here with apple-strawberry juice and our lower
calorie dairy base. A heavenly way to get your B6 fix which ensures your
nervous systems peak performance!
What we say: This one was AWESOME. It was super-creamy, sweet, and had
the perfect blend of berries and bananas. You would have absolutely no idea
that this beverage was lower-cal or low-fat in any way. It wasn't as slushie or
icy as some of the others so the texture was better, too.
Overall score: A perfect 10. Bravo!
(16 oz. - 170 calories, 0.5g fat, 230mg sodium, 36g carbs, 2g fiber, 32g
sugars, 7g protein = 3 Points)
What they say: Seeking enlightenment? Heres a mantra to live by... a blend
of mangos and peaches with 100% pure orange juice and our delicious lower
calorie dairy base. Mangos are a renowned source of vitamin A, which is
essential for immunity and healthy cells, especially eyes, skin, and hair.
What we say: This one tasted like frozen orange juice with mango and it was
actually pretty yummy, though it was a tiny bit bland and tasted like it was
lacking something (though we're not sure what). We have to admit, we
added some Splenda to this one as well and that definitely helped. You can
really taste and see the chunks of mango in this one, which we definitely
Overall score: 7.5
(16 oz - 160 calories, 0.5g fat, 230mg sodium, 33g carbs, 4g fiber, 25g
sugars, 7g protein = 2 Points)
What they say: The name says it all! Berries fulfill while achieving the
harmony of simple, fresh flavor. We add a mix of strawberries, raspberries,
and blueberries to our lower calorie dairy base and mix in raspberry juice.
The result is a lower calorie smoothie filled with vitamin C as well as iron,
which keeps your blood healthy and happy.
What we say: This one was SUPER thick. It was bursting with awesome
berry flavor and you could actually taste each individual kind of berry
(really!) strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries. We loved this one it
tasted like a decadent dessert. Bravo!
Overall score: 9
