In 2020, Coca-Cola discontinued producing all Odwalla products. The brand will cease to exist. For other dairy-free protein shake and smoothie options that are currently available, see our Dairy-Free Creamy Beverage Reviews.
Though many of their protein drinks do contain dairy (aside from two soy-based ones), the entire product line of Odwalla Dairy Free Smoothies is pure and vegan.
Normally, when I think of smoothies, I think of thick, spoonable, sweet delights that I whiz up in my blender with the base of a frozen banana. But smoothies do come in all flavors and textures, and can be refreshing fuel for those of us who don’t really care for straight juice. And although I’d never thought of purchasing a pre-packaged smoothie on-the-go, I’m a bit smitten with Odwalla Dairy Free Smoothies.
The flavors of Odwalla Dairy Free Smoothies have changed over the years, but one of my favorites has persisted. The Mo’ Beta is a fantastic drinkable blend with the sweetness of pureed peach and mango bursting through. It isn’t on the ingredient list, but the fruit combination has a tangerine-like appeal that both Tony and I loved.
Over the years, we’ve sampled several of the flavors since Odwalla Dairy Free Smoothies are relatively easy to find, even when traveling, and are a relatively affordable energizer. Mo’ Beta remains our favorite, but the Citrus C Monster and Red Rhapsody have also been repeat purchases.
In addition to these fruit smoothies, Odwalla offers a big range of protein drinks / smoothies, but most of them now contain dairy. Nonetheless, they do keep a couple of dairy-free, soy-based varieties in the mix.

I just like to see non soy drinks and non pasteurized so it keeps more important micronutrients.
I would like more soy free. I had cancer and have been told by my Dr. to stay away from soy but I like lot of the drinks working at natural grocers. I try to find drinks with no soy plus I have lot of customers who can’t have soy to its hard to find no soy.
Convenient drinkable smoothies
It’s hard to beat the convenience of these well-distributed, fruit-focused beverages. They’re relatively thin, drinkable smoothies that are ripe with fruit flavors. We’ve enjoyed all that we’ve sampled, with Mo’ Beta topping the list. But, it would be great to see them come out with more innovative dairy-free and vegan protein versions.
