Do you like Jamba juice? Well, we do. So today, we are doing a copycat recipe of their mango-a-go-go smoothie! We kept it simple, and easy and it comes out very tasty, and of course, much cheaper too!
If we tell you that all it takes is 3 ingredients to make a homemade Mango a go go, would you believe us? Well you better, because it really needs 3 ingredients ONLY.
Is Mango a Gogo Healthy?
Are you watching what you put in your body more these days? Well, your question on is Jamba Juice Mango Go-Go is healthy is totally valid.
The simple answer is, yes and no. Let’s put it this way though, it’s much healthier than a sugar-loaded frappuccino, or a can of coke.
However, Mango Go Go contains quite a bit of sugar, as the ingredients consist of:
Pear white grape mango orange passion juice blend, mangos pineapple sherbet unpackaged menu items are not guaranteed to be allergen-free *may be substituted for apple pear strawberry mango juice blend** in some stores **may contain passion fruit juice
The sherbet is what contains the most sugar. However, a medium-sized mango go go contains 390 calories, which isn’t a lot at all, compared to other drinks you can get.
The problem is, a medium-sized mango go go contains a whooping 86g of sugar!
So, all and all, it’s a pretty good choice, but watch for that sugar, perhaps opt for a small serving.
Is Homemade Mango A Go Go Smoothie Healthier?
Homemade is always best. No matter what. And to answer the question, YES, homemade Mango A Go Go Smoothie is SO much healthier than getting it from Jamba Juice.
It contains 3 ingredients only and uses whole real fruit only. You still get thick cooling and refreshing taste, but without all the added sugars. It’s also much lower in calories.
A serving of homemade Mango A Go Go Smoothie contains:
Note that the majority of the sugar is from the mango, and only 4.5g of it comes from the passionfruit juice.
