The Top Swap at Jamba Juice

Jamba Juice makes more than a few faux-fruit blends—beverages unnecessarily weighed down with sherbet, sorbet, and other added sugars—but its menu has a ton of real-deal smoothies, as well. Jamba’s incredible line of Fruit & Veggie smoothies and its low-calorie food menu are unrivaled by other American chains. But order what’s on the opposite page and you could be drinking down the equivalent of more than 24 packets of sugar.

Make It Light smoothies, like this berry option, have up to half the sugar of the chain’s Classic creations. Consider them the smartest options at the healthiest smoothie shop in the country. Just be careful: sugary add-ins turn many frozen-fruit blends into glorified desserts. The fruit in the Surf Rider is mixed with sherbet—no wonder it has more sugar than two McDonald’s Hot Fudge Sundaes.
