Jamba is launching a vegan version of its seasonal Pumpkin Smash spiced smoothie in time for fall.
The Vegan Pumpkin Smash Smoothie combines cinnamon, nutmeg, and pumpkin with Oatly oat milk and So Delicious dairy-free ice cream. Jamba—formerly known as Jamba Juice—is in the process of modernizing its menu and offering expanded vegan options.
Last year, Jamba became the first national chain to add Oatly to its permanent menu nationwide. The chain expanded its plant-based menu throughout 2019, along with more health-conscious and reduced sugar items.
“We’ve been offering balanced ingredients on the go for almost 30 years and must continue to evolve to meet our guests’ ever-changing definition of wellness,” Jamba President Geoff Henry said in a press release at the time. “We’re staying true to our heritage as an innovator in the space.”
Jamba’s Vegan Menu
Jamba currently offers a selection of plant-based smoothie options. Along with the new Vegan Pumpkin Smash spiced smoothie, they include the Apple ‘n Greens, Mega Mango, Greens ‘n Ginger, and Vanilla Blue Sky made with almond milk, coconut milk, and a blue spirulina “boost.”
All smoothies can be made with oat milk, which was added to the menu last year. Chains, including select Starbucks locations, have followed Jamba and added oat milk to the menu.
“We’re proud to have launched the smoothie and juice category three decades ago and can’t wait to join our guests’ wellness journey for decades to come,” added Henry.
In addition to smoothies, Jamba offers smoothie bowls, steel-cut oatmeal, and a vegan apple cinnamon pretzel.
Vegan Pumpkin Spice Drinks
Starbucks popular Pumpkin Spice Latte is synonymous with fall. But the PSL is only vegan-friendly at European stores, not in the U.S.
Fortunately, several other national coffee shops offer plant-based pumpkin spice drinks, including The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, Whole Foods Market, and Peet’s Coffee. At Peet’s, customers can order from the vegan Pumpkin Latte, Pumpkin Chai Latte, Dark Chocolate Pumpkin Mocha, and Pumpkin Javiva.
There are also several supermarket options, including Silk’s Pumpkin Spice Almond Creamer, Califia Farms Pumpkin Spice Cold Brew Latte, and Chameleon’s PSL.
