We all love smoothies, they can be a great way to eat healthy, delicious, and in some cases… sugar-heavy! When it comes to smoothies we do not all immediately think of Wawa, however, Wawa does have smoothie options for all.
Many people want to be healthy when they have their smoothies, though, which makes us wonder if they are actually good for us!
Wawa has unhealthy and healthy smoothie options. The Blueberry Pomegranate Mango, for example, has 0% fat and 350 calories. On the other hand, the Caramel Chocolate Chip Cream has 1,300 calories and 61 grams of fat (yikes).
Today, we are going to look at Wawa’s smoothie options and talk about how good they are for you. So, for all Wawa lovers, the questions end here, because we have all the answers!
What Is In Wawa’s Smoothies?
Wawa sells a wide variety of food, and if you live on the east coast you are likely addicted. Wawa is open 24 hours a day, every day. As we are sure you’ve all heard how Wawa stayed open during covid and has even stayed open and helped people in storms, hurricanes, and more.
They are legends, but are their smoothies?
Some of their smoothies are kind of healthy, but others really are not. Their fruit smoothies are made from real fruit and some have no cholesterol or fat, however, some cream-based smoothies of theirs are packed with sugar, fat, and cholesterol.
The most awesome thing about Wawa’s smoothies is that there are so many options! You can even add whipped cream if you fancy a sugar kick!

Do Wawa Smoothies Have Dairy?
If you are lactose intolerant, or if you do not drink milk for any other reason, perhaps you are vegan, you might be curious as to whether you can have a smoothie from Wawa. Luckily, their fruit smoothies, such as the Strawberry Banana and Mango Banana do not have any dairy.
If you do like milk-based smoothies, you have loads of options, their Cream or Caramel Cream and Mint Cookies smoothies are all great choices.
Note: All Wawa smoothies that are cream-based contain dairy, their fruit-based smoothies do not unless you choose one with yogurt. Some fruit smoothies can be chosen with soya milk, so always check if you can have this before you order.
Do Wawa Smoothies Contain Added Sugars?
Now, this is important. Added sugars are an unhealthy tradition of modern diets. Wawa smoothies are tasty and sweet, and sadly, all contain added sugars. Yet, that being said, some contain a great deal more added sugars than others. The Lemon Freeze has 85 g of sugar, but the Chocolate Cheesecake Cookie Cream has 121 g of sugar!
If you want to limit how much sugar you’re consuming, you should check the nutritional information on the smoothie before you order. This way, you can make sure that you are not consuming more sugar than you want.
Do Wawa Smoothies Have Real Fruit?
You might not expect Wawa to make their smoothies with real fruit, as most smoothies do not unless made at a specific smoothie joint or at home.
However, fruit-based smoothies from Wawa do contain real fruit, usually blended into a puree. Some of these include:
- Mango Banana smoothie.
- Strawberry Banana smoothies.
- Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie.

Wawa smoothies are delicious and tasty, however, we wouldn’t call them healthy. While their fruit smoothies are low in fat and often low in calories, they add a lot of added sugars to their smoothies.
So, Wawa smoothies are worth it for flavor, but we would not say they are worth it for healthy consumption.

Do Wawa Smoothies Have Vegan Smoothies?
Wawa’s fruit smoothies can be vegan, options such as the Mixed Berry and Blueberry Pomegranate are vegan, and you can order these with oat, almond, or soy milk. However, do you have to specify? Also, avoid the ‘Freeze’ options as these are made with cow’s milk.
