jamba juice, good stuff for you?

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
1. how many of you guys drink jamba juice?
2. do you think it's good for you?
3. how about the sugar content?
4. which is your favorite jamba jamba??

I'm a jamba juice drinker, like how some of you guys pay 4-5 bucks for that joe from peets or starbucks, my money goes to jamba.

2. i how good it is for me, but i think it's some what healthy. i have never read their booklets they give out
3. i know the sugar content varies from drink to drink, but doesn't the sugar mostly come from the fruit itself?? so, it's good calories?
4. my favorite one right now is Acai Supercharger

i drink jamba occasionaly and only get the "enlightened" ones. they may have chock full of vitamins and stuff, but they also have A LOT of calories /sugar.
my fave is the peach something.
jamba can be a healthy drink if you get the small size.

Jamba Juice has sooo many calories. A regular sized Jamba Smoothie has around 500 calories (or more!). They do have fruit in them, but they also have frozen yogurt which has a lot of sugar...and the juice in them also adds a lot of calories. The light versions are better in terms of calories, they have about half what the regular flavors have (around 250 for the regular size). Unless you are having a (non light) Jamba Juice as a meal, you should get a smaller size or try the light versions. Better yet is probably just eating a couple pieces of fruit, or making your own smoothies at home. I make smoothies with Soy Milk, and frozen fruit like bananas and strawberries and just a splash of juice. I like being able to control what goes into them so I can watch my calories and sugar.

I make my own fruit smoothies at home. They are super easy and super healthy. I am addicted to them.

I just keep plenty of frozen fruit in the house. I usually have: mango, pineapple, papaya, strawberries, blueberrries and raspberries. I don't put that all in each one...just use a couple (though usually always mango because they make them nice and creamy.

For a mixer I use a little bit of warm water (otherwise it is too frozen) and some sort of no sugar added juice. My favorite is Bolthouse Farms C-Boost. It is very smooth and tropical tasting. It is all natural but has tons of vitamins C, A and E. It also has zinc, echinacia and astragulus.

Dump it all in the blender and blend away. It is better for you and you can make a smoothie every day for what 2 jamba juice cost.

Once you have an all-fruit one you will never want to go back to those syrupy, ice chunk filled things again.

my favs are peach pleasure and mega mango. i'm sure that there are alot of calories though, my health teacher told another student if she wanted to lose weight she should cut back on the smoothies. there's still sugar in the sorbets and sherberts they use.

I have a friend who once worked at Jamba, and she told me that Jamba Smoothies are intended as meal replacements. So, with that in mind, when we have a Jamba in addition to our normal daily calorie intake, we are having an extra meal that day. Yikes! But my husband loves them, and he doesn't need to worry about what he eats in the way that I do. It's unfair!
