Jamba Doubles Down with Dairy-Free Oat Milk and Ice Cream

0

Updated in 2021! A couple years ago, Jamba dropped the Juice, on their name, not the menu. Along with the short and sweet rebranding, they began to expand their plant-based menu with colorful new options like the Vanilla Blue Sky. Soon after, Jamba made another dairy-free play, partnering with Oatly to add oat milk to their menu. They now offer four non-dairy milk beverages and one more big surprise. Jamba is scooping So Delicious Oatmilk frozen dessert as a vegan alternative to their sherbet and frozen yogurt. It’s also featured in their seasonal, dairy-free Summer Blackberry Smoothie.

Dairy-Free Menu Guide for Jamba with Vegan Options

All of the following Jamba menu items are also plant-based and vegan, except the ones with honey noted. You can opt to omit the honey, if desired. The ingredients for the smoothies and bowls at Jamba are as listed, so most of them can also be made soy-free, gluten-free, or nut-free, as requested.

Classic Smoothies

Heads Up! All Jamba classic smoothies are made with sherbet, frozen yogurt, and/or dairy yogurt. They will substitute banana or dairy-free milk beverage for any of these ingredients on request. And select Jamba locations now have So Delicious non-dairy oatmilk ice cream as an alternative. But the chocolate classic smoothies can’t be made dairy-free due to the “moo’d” chocolate base.

Beverages

Juices & Shots: At the time of our review, all Juices and Shots at Jamba were pure, simple, and naturally dairy free.

Other Breakfast

I tried the Vanilla sky and it was tasteless 🙁
Glad I got a small can’t even finish it tastes so bad. I also tried the island bowl which was like soup. It was horrible. Melted right away and I ate it right outside the shop it was a cold day just needs to be way more frozen. So $14.87 later what a waste. Gross.
