Jamba Has Good News For Fans Of Its Pumpkin Smash Smoothie

Few seasonal flavors have a hold on American culture quite like pumpkin. Every fall, brands and restaurants compete for the best take on the ubiquitous comfort flavor, and pumpkin-inspired beverages and snacks fill menus at our favorite cafes and the aisles at all the grocery stores. It's for a good reason, too. Pumpkin spice is delicious, and the scent, flavor, and creamy texture all combine in your mouth to form the perfect culinary portal to autumn nostalgia.

While a lot of focus goes to the coffee versions of pumpkin-flavored beverages, like the offerings at Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts, another popular option comes around each year at Jamba. Their Pumpkin Smash Smoothie is delicious and represents how the brand is trying to gear its menu to dairy-free and health-minded consumers with a hankering for fall beverages (via Live Kindly). As the first brand to carry Oatly oat milk as a permanent fixture of the menu, alongside several other health-minded food options, Jamba has fully jumped on the healthy eating wagon. We wonder, what makes their Pumpkin Smash stand out?

The return of the Pumpkin Smash Smoothie

The good news is that Jamba is bringing its Pumpkin Smash Smoothie back earlier than ever this year. According to Chew Boom, the delectable seasonal beverage is already available for online orders, and will be available in participating stores nationwide by August 24. There will be two versions of the drink on the menu. The Classic version is made with 2% milk, the chain's signature pumpkin spice mix, and fat-free vanilla frozen yogurt. The Plant-based version of the beverage is vegan (though Jamba does caution there is a risk of cross-contamination), made with oat milk, the pumpkin spice blend, and an oat milk frozen dessert.

Honestly, both sound like they would hit the spot for anyone craving a cold and creamy autumn treat. The suggested price for the Pumpkin Smash Smoothie is $6.79. Both versions will be available at participating stores until November 15, while supplies last. We definitely can't wait to grab our first fall drink of the season.
