Popular Naked Juice Flavors, Ranked Worst To Best

Naked Juice smoothies can be found just about everywhere beverages are sold, so there's a good chance you've come across them at multiple points, if not tried a few yourself. When we took a good look at the full line of Naked smoothies, we were a little surprised how many there actually are. While many stores sell a handful of the most popular flavors, there are dozens of smoothie flavors in the Naked collection. Here, we've tasted the 17 smoothie flavors that are currently widely available to give you an idea of what all of the options are. Naked also makes a line of protein shakes and coconut water, which we consider separate from its smoothies and so didn't review here.

Smoothies are a quick and tasty way to work extra fruits and vegetables into your diet. But making them at home daily or stopping at the artisan juice shop on a regular basis can become a burden for something that's supposed to make our lives easier. Naked Juice is here to provide you with your favorite smoothie on demand. Of course, when it comes to smoothie flavors, the preferences are as diverse as the people drinking them. With that in mind, Naked has created a wide variety of juice blends that highlight vegetables, fruits, and different vitamins and minerals, not to mention specialty blends of everything for those who want a taste of it all. Here's how the most popular Naked Juice smoothies stack up, from worst to best.

17. Kale Blazer

Kale Blazer is one of Naked's more popular flavors, to the point where it's available in three different sizes. But after tasting it, we can't exactly tell you why so many people seem to like it. It's not that we're against a smoothie packed with veggies and leafy greens. It's just that this particular one smells like kale that's already gone bad in the crisper drawer — and it doesn't taste much better. Packed full of kale, spinach, celery, and cucumber, there are plenty of greens to be excited about here, if only we could be. The drink at least gets a small dose of sweetness from oranges and apples, but it's still not enough to mask the disagreeable wilted greens flavor. There's a hint of lemon and ginger, too, which is noticeable but not especially helpful.

With all of that said, this particular smoothie clocks in at 180 calories per 15.2-ounce bottle, according to its nutritional information. That's lower than most of the other juice blends Naked has to offer. You're going to get a healthy dose of potassium and vitamin C in each bottle as well, along with a handful of additional vitamins and minerals. But it's surprisingly lacking in fiber and lower in iron than we expected from a drink packed full of greens. Ultimately, we'd suggest you pass on this particular juice in favor of something a little fresher.

16. Orange Carrot Mango Immune Support

For those looking for a vegetable-forward juice, perhaps one reminiscent of those created by V8 but a little fresher, Naked Juice's Orange Carrot Mango Immune Support smoothie might be just what you're looking for. The juice is just as orange-colored as you might imagine it to be, with a strong carrot taste to open. It's followed up with orange and apple juices for a bit of sweetness, half a mango for a touch of tropical creaminess, and lemon and banana to round it all out.

All in all, it's not a bad drink. If someone handed it to us, we'd probably down it without much fuss. But it's also probably not one we'll reach for very often. It's at least got a high percentage of vitamin C and vitamin A, which might be helpful if you feel a cold coming on or if you want to fortify your immune system a little bit before traveling (though that's admittedly a bit of a myth). 

Still, this drink is not overwhelmingly delicious. Carrot cake is dreamy, fresh carrots and dip are satisfying, but this drink is merely fine. To be fair, there are many great benefits associated with drinking carrot juice regularly. If you're looking for ways to incorporate it into your diet more frequently, this smoothie could be a decent option for you to start. For a long-term carrot juice solution with greater health benefits, however, we recommend something with less sugar in it.

15. O-J

We don't want to give you the impression that there's something wrong with Naked's Orange Juice. There isn't. It's tasty, bold, and citrusy. They claim that one 15.2-ounce bottle packs in the juice of five oranges, which is pretty impressive. But ultimately, it's just orange juice. And there's nothing wrong with that either, except in a lineup as creative and exciting as the one put out by Naked Juice, this one kinda loses its sparkle. But for the sake of being thorough, we do want to point out that one serving of this orange juice provides roughly 150% of your daily value of vitamin C to help keep your immune system happy.

The biggest downfall of orange juice, and sadly many juices on the market regardless of brand, is its high sugar content. Naked pledges not to add any sugar to their juices, but the inherent sugar here is still pretty high, coming in at 51 grams per serving. Of course, everything can theoretically be enjoyed in moderation. But if your sugar intake is something that you keep a close eye on, you may want to look elsewhere for a reduced sugar orange juice option. On the other hand, if this is the orange juice for you, it's sold in individual servings, as well as a half-gallon option for the whole family to enjoy.

14. Bright Beets

As a kid, beet juice might not have sounded very exciting, but as an adult, you may have warmed up to the prospect. Beets are packed with nutrients, after all, and as the so-called candy of the vegetable world, they make a great addition to vegetable smoothies. Bright Beets includes carrots, which you'll definitely taste, but they are nicely balanced with the ever-present beets. Apple juice provides some additional sweetness, while lemon and ginger round it out for a bright and zingy juice. If you're into beets, this is an excellent way to get a few more servings of your daily vegetables. If beets aren't your thing, this one isn't the one for you. It's simply not formulated to hide the beet flavor but instead amplifies it. It is on the label, after all.

As far as the nutritional lineup for this juice goes, it's also on the lower end of the calorie spectrum for Naked drinks with 160 calories per serving and decent helpings of vitamin A and potassium. As for the color? It's beet juice, so yes, it will probably stain your shirt if you're a clumsy drinker — but that's nothing a decent straw can't help you with. So, assuming you're already into beets, this is for you. If not, however, you may want to skip ahead and find something more suited to your palate.

13. Berry Veggie

For many people, the only way to sneak vegetables into a smoothie is with red berries and other strongly flavored fruits that overpower everything else in the mix. There may be something to that, after all. At any rate, Naked puts the theory to the test with their Berry Veggie smoothie. It's loaded with sweet cherries, strawberries, and plums, all presumably there to help mask the flavors of carrots, beets, sweet potato, corn, and chickpeas. Intense, right? 

Also, a bit confusing. As Sarah Chen for Spoon University writes, "Two words. Sweet potato. With a dash of cherry ... and some berries. We think? There's really no distinct taste, and the color is a bit strange." Plus, there's just no escaping the vegetal undertones of a drink packed with so many vegetables.

For those who are finding all of that rather hard to swallow, it may be helpful to look at the numbers. This a sweeter beverage than any of the ones we've looked at so far, and we're strong believers in the very Mary Poppins concept of "a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down." Nutritionally speaking, it's a powerhouse of vitamins and minerals, including more iron and protein than we've seen in any of the smoothies yet. Then again, it's by no means a low-calorie drink, coming in at 290 calories per serving.

12. Vitamin D Machine

When you think of vitamin D, fruit juice isn't really the first thing that comes to mind. Instead, dairy products are typically promoted as being a good source of vitamin D and calcium, along with eggs, fish, and some fortified foods (via Healthline). Working with a mostly tropical flavor palette that includes pineapple, kiwi, passionfruit, banana, and apples, Naked Juice's Vitamin D Machine smoothie shows that fruit shouldn't be ignored in the vitamin game. This particular Naked Juice smoothie is high in vitamins A, C, D, K, and calcium. This is great news for those who are lactose intolerant and looking for those nutrients in other foods.

This juice is very pineapple and apple forward, which can come across as especially sweet and acidic for some. While we think that Naked Juices does tropical fruits exceptionally well, this one might be a little bit too much for some people as a result, perhaps even leaving you with a weirdly tender mouth. That said, this drink lends itself nicely to being mixed with club soda for a fruity spritzer or even stirred into a tangerine or orange La Croix for a refreshing poolside beverage with just a little extra nutritional value.

11. Piña Colada

Sometime late (or well, early) in the afternoon, every afternoon, we start daydreaming about running away on a tropical vacation. Cue the Naked Piña Colada smoothie. Pineapple and coconut milk have us floating on cloud nine with apple, banana, orange, and lemon to balance out the entire drink. Unfortunately, it was difficult to find in several stores. Also, this little tropical daydream will set you back about 310 calories per 15.2-ounce bottle, which is a lot of sugar (and fiber, which isn't inherently a bad thing by itself, though you can theoretically overdo it). There isn't a great deal of nutritional value in this smoothie, but that's not really the purpose of this flavor anyway. 

The solution? Blend a bottle of this smoothie up with some ice and four to five ounces of rum, and then separate the mix into two glasses. Enjoy the resulting adult piña colada with a punch alongside your favorite travel buddy for half the calories. Given that it's made with all-natural fruit juices and ingredients, we're sometimes happy to let the folks at Naked Juice do the heavy lifting. Still, this isn't a flavor that's bound to please everyone.

10. Power C Machine

When they say Power C Machine, the people at Naked Juice really aren't kidding. One serving of this juice packs about 1270% of your daily recommended dose of vitamin C. This is great if you're feeling a tickle in the back of your throat that you want to get out in front of, or if you're planning on traveling soon and want to do everything in your power to boost your immune system. As far as flavor goes, this smoothie packs a mega citrus punch. It's made with apples, mangoes, oranges, guavas, peaches, and strawberries.

But these fruits alone won't give you that much vitamin C, so it's added in the form of ascorbic acid which naturally occurs in lemons, limes, and even bell peppers. Ascorbic acid is also a very common ingredient in foods — especially those involving fruit. The catch is, a good amount of it was added to achieve that incredibly high vitamin C level, which gives the whole drink a powerfully tart flavor. For some, that result may be a bit too tart. Naked has tried their best to balance it all out with sweeter and more rounded fruits, but it's still pretty noticeable nonetheless. If a vitamin C boost is what you're looking for, give it a shot. But if it's not exactly your favorite, consider trying one of the other smoothies to get a similar effect. The Power C smoothie is available in two sizes, a 15.2-ounce serving and 64 ounces.

9. Rainbow Machine

The Rainbow Machine smoothie is truly a blend of everything Naked Juice has got going on. It hits just about every color in the rainbow in fruit or vegetable form, including apples, blueberries, kiwi, banana, mango, red beets, and blackberries. It doesn't lean too heavily into the tropical fruit or very berry categories, though, and generally just tastes like a blended juice as a result. Nutrient-wise, it's also about as middle-of-the-road as it gets, with a nice spread of vitamins in healthy proportions, as well as a touch of iron and fiber to round it all out. It's not bad, exactly, but neither is it terribly exciting or noteworthy.

If anything, you can sip this smoothie with the satisfaction that you've taken a bite of the whole rainbow today, which is still pretty cool. This smoothie is also one of Naked's more popular offerings and is available in two sizes, including the individual serving and a half-gallon size. Like most other Naked drinks, it's made with non-GMO produce and is gluten and preservative-free.

8. Blue Machine

It can be challenging to find a blueberry or dark fruit smoothie that isn't a little bit unripe and bitter. Either that, or the fruits oxidize quickly, leaving you with a gross brown sludge, or else they're overly jammy and sweet. There are a lot of reasons why you don't see many dark fruit smoothies on the market. Blue Machine has managed to avoid all of those pitfalls and provide you with an excellently blue smoothie full of blueberries, a few blackberries, apple, and banana. 

If you haven't tried this flavor before you may be curious. Does it taste like a blueberry muffin? Sort of. Is it sweet? Yes. Does it taste like berries? Yes, but not the big bursting red fruit kind of berries. Instead, it's a little more subdued. Ultimately, we like the flavor a lot, but we also felt like Naked missed an opportunity to add in some greens like spinach or kale. Those flavors typically compliment dark fruit smoothies and help up the health factor.

Either way, the Blue Machine smoothie is absolutely chock full of nutrients, overflowing with vitamins C, E, B6, B12, and niacin. The whole bottle comes in around 320 calories, in no small part due to that high sugar content, so you may want to enjoy this one in moderation. Since this is one of Naked's most popular smoothies, it's available in a whopping four sizes up to a half gallon.

7. Orange Mango

For everyone who enjoys the Mighty Mango smoothie, you'll also probably enjoy the Orange Mango smoothie produced by Naked Juice. Simply put, it's like the Mighty Mango and O-J got mixed-up and bottled as a new and still very refreshing juice. It's a little lighter in texture than the almost creamy Mighty Mango, with a little bit of a citrusy kick from the additional orange juice. The smoothie is also blended with apple and banana, like many of Naked's other smoothies.

This particular smoothie doesn't pack an exceptionally large punch, nutritionally speaking, but it's got a little bit of vitamin C to contribute to your daily intake, as well as a small amount of protein. Ultimately, we think it's a step up from your typical glass of orange juice at breakfast and has a more interesting flavor than orange alone. It's not exactly a powerhouse, though. We're also big fans of using it for mimosas at brunch for a more luxurious breakfast cocktail, if you're interested in incorporating an occasional alcoholic treat into your diet. Sure, it's not quite as spellbinding as the Mighty Mango smoothie, but then again, very few things are.

6. Red Machine

There's a lot going on in the Red Machine smoothie. It's got a deeply juicy red berry flavor profile that's balanced with a hint of tartness to level off all the sweetness brought to the table by the many fruits involved. Inside the bottles, you'll find a blended mix of apples, oranges, strawberries, banana, raspberries, red grapes, pomegranate, and cranberries. These all contribute to the complexity of red fruit flavors in this bottle. Furthermore, the smoothie is boosted with flax which provides several more nutritional benefits than the red fruits alone, like improving your digestion and providing more omega-3 fatty acids.

That said, it's true that this juice is on the higher end of the calorie spectrum, clocking in at 320 calories per serving. That is, perhaps unsurprisingly now, in part due to the relatively high sugar content, but also partially due to the fiber content. This smoothie is a pretty excellent source of B6 and B12 vitamins and contributes a small amount of protein to your daily intake, too. Overall, it's an incredibly delicious drink with a surprising amount of complexity, given that it's based on a simple concept of mixing together fruits of the same color. For someone looking for a more red fruit-driven blended smoothie that isn't quite satisfied with the Blue Machine flavors, this one may be the one for you.

5. Berry Blast

With a name like Berry Blast, you might be wondering if this is going to taste more like a Capri Sun than a natural fruit smoothie, but trust us: it's a smoothie. And it really is true to its name, given that the smoothie is figuratively bursting with berry flavor. In a side-by-side comparison with the Red Machine smoothie, we thought they tasted very similar at first. But after a few more sips we were able to tell them apart. Where the Red Machine has more complex bitter notes and a lighter mouthfeel, the Berry Blast smoothie is more delicately sweet and even a little creamy.

When it comes to what's in the bottle, the Berry Blast keeps it relatively simple with strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, apples, and bananas. It's really no less than the classic berry smoothie lineup. It's also got 100 fewer calories per serving compared to its Red Machine counterpart, most likely due to not having any fiber included in the mix. You're not going to find a wide range of nutritional value here, but you are going to find a flavor that almost everyone will be happy to drink, including some of the pickiest eaters you know. As one of the more popular Naked Juice drinks, it's available in four sizes to satisfy yourself or a crowd.

4. Tropical Guava

Sometimes fresh guava can be a tad funky, which is easy to look past given how sweet and juicy excellent perfectly ripe guava can be. However, sometimes bottled guava juice still has that unique aroma to it, which can throw some people off. That said, if you've been looking for a guava juice with all of that lush tropical sweetness and none of the funk, then Naked Juice's Tropical Guava is your juice. Bolstered by pineapple, grapes, and orange juice, this blended juice smoothie is the ultimate tropical drink in the Naked lineup. It's also got kiwi, banana, apple, chokeberry, and elderberry in the mix.

It shouldn't come as a surprise that you're getting your complete daily dose of vitamin C with every bottle of Tropical Guava, but you're also getting a considerable amount of fiber. The label lists 9 grams of fiber that roughly equates to 32% of your daily fiber needs. While it's got a few more calories than orange juice alone, this drink is definitely a pretty welcome way to wake up and refresh in the morning. We'd also gladly take a cold bottle of it in the heat of the afternoon, while watching the sunset, after a barbecue dinner, on a road trip, or for a mid-afternoon pick-me-up. It hits all of the tropical notes we love while balancing sweet, tart, and light flavors better than any of the other tropical juice blends in the Naked Juice lineup.

3. Strawberry Banana

Strawberry banana is probably one of the most ubiquitous smoothie flavors out there. Before things got so fancy, it was a go-to flavor on most smoothie menus everywhere, combining the body and flavor of bananas with readily available and sweet strawberries. And if we're honest, we still love it. Why mess with a classic, after all?

While some strawberry banana smoothies picked up synthetic chemical flavors when they became mass-produced bottled offerings at your grocery store, the Naked Strawberry Banana version actually tastes like fresh fruit and ripe strawberries. The smoothie itself is blended with apples and a hint of orange to round out the flavor profile. After one sip, we were both surprised at how good it tasted and completely hooked.

With that said, there isn't a great deal of nutritional value in this smoothie. It clocks in at 250 calories per bottle, which is a lot, but not terrible when considered in light of other higher-calorie options. Instead, it's got enough vitamin C and potassium to help contribute to your daily nutritional needs, and that's about it. According to the label, one bottle packs in 22 strawberries, 1.75 apples, and 1.3 bananas — so at the very least, you can feel confident that you've gotten several servings of fruits in for the day. Otherwise, it's like sipping on pure nostalgia. In many respects, that's absolutely worth its weight in gold. This flavor is available in four sizes ranging from individual servings to enough for the whole household.

2. Mighty Mango

Mighty Mango is one of those flavors that everyone agrees is fantastic (well, everyone we casually polled, at least). It's citrusy and tropical, has a little bit of body to it, a smooth sweetness that isn't overpowering, and tastes good just about every time of year. Some of the folks we polled even mentioned that they'd tasted the Mighty Mango smoothie before ever actually eating a real mango, which is surprising, to say the least! Needless to say, if you like mangoes or tropical fruits in general, there's a good chance that you'll also enjoy the Mighty Mango smoothie. It's basically liquid smoothie gold.

This smoothie claims to have 1.25 mangoes packed into the 15.2-ounce individual-serving bottle, as well as apples, orange, banana, and a hint of lemon. It's also got roughly 190% of your daily dose of vitamin A, which contributes to a host of healthy functions like boosting your immune system and supporting proper organ function, according to the National Institutes of Health. This particular smoothie is a little high in sugar, however, so keep that in mind when enjoying it. You may want to sip on it slowly throughout the day in an effort to pace yourself.

1. Green Machine

Unlike the Kale Blazer, it's clear from the first sip why the Green Machine is so incredibly popular. It takes the best of what we love from the Naked tropical drinks, including pineapple, apples, mango, kiwi, and banana. It's then boosted with all of the healthy stuff, including spirulina, alfalfa, broccoli, spinach, barley grass, wheatgrass, garlic, ginger, kale, and parsley. That seems like a lot to pack into just one bottle, but it's surprisingly well balanced and downright tasty. It's genuinely the easiest way to feel good about getting a few more nutrients into your system short of munching on spinach out of the bag.

This smoothie doesn't go overboard on one particular vitamin or mineral but instead gives you a nice spread of vitamins plus a little iron, protein, and potassium. It's so popular, in fact, that it's one of a handful of juices that Naked offers in four different sizes. Green Machine is available in the single-serving 15.2-ounce size and a smaller 10-ounce bottle often found in variety packs, a larger 46-ounce bottle, and a considerable 64-ounce bottle. It might not be quite the same as a custom green juice from your local boutique juice shop, but it's far more cost-effective and darn near effortless to keep in your fridge. 

Plus, once they taste it, we bet even the pickiest people in your household will love it. There's no doubt as to why this is by far one of the most popular Naked Juice flavors ever.
