Smoothies At Dutch Bros

Dutch Bros has a wide choice of decadent fruit smoothies, with 4 staple flavors: green apple, mango, strawberry, and peach. But it doesn’t stop here; they also have seasonal smoothies like Lava Flow.

Other options like wild berry are often in rotation. Of course, they also have some enticing secret menu smoothies!

Smoothies

While tasty and refreshing, Dutch Bros smoothies are also high in calories. They’re made with fruit purée and ice, and a medium-size smoothie can reach as high as 700 calories! 

If you’re watching your sugar intake, beware, all medium-sized smoothies have over 100 grams of sugar, some reaching 150 grams.

Dutch Bros Smoothie Ingredients

Smoothies at Dutch Bros are made with fruit syrup or purée blended with ice, which gives them that smooth texture.

Some more extravagant smoothies are blended with ice cream and topped with whipped cream.

There are also dairy-free smoothies that contain nothing more than ice and fruit purée.


Ways To Amp Your Dutch Bros Smoothie

Fruit smoothies easily get boring, so Dutch Bros tackled this issue by providing customizations to level up your daily fruit serving.

You can choose from simple add-ons to drizzles that make the smoothie look like a tropical cocktail. Here are our suggestions.

Pour Soft Top
Homemade Soft Top

1. Parfait-Style

Parfait-style smoothie means the whipped cream is mixed into the smoothie, not only piped on top. There are distinct layers of smoothie and whipped cream, resulting in a dessert-like drink.

These smoothies are creamier and have a lighter texture than the regular.

2. Soft Top

The soft top at Dutch Bros is upscale whipped cream. At first glance, it might look like whipped cream, but once you taste it, you’ll recognize the marshmallow-like texture. 

It’s made from buttermilk, sweetener, and locust bean gum which makes it fluffy and springy.

2. Drizzles

Drizzles are not only for coffee; at Dutch Bros, you can add them to your smoothies. They add an extra flavor and sweetness to the drink but also make it prettier.

Drizzles work best with frost and freezes, as they stay on longer without melting into the drink. The most common drizzles are chocolate and caramel.

Final Words

Dutch Bros Smoothie

A Dutch Bros smoothie is something between a dessert and mid-day pick me up. It’s not the first thing you’d think to order at the chain, but unlike classic fruit smoothies, the Dutch Bros versions come with many customization options.

FAQs: Dutch Bros Smoothie

Do Dutch Bros smoothies have dairy?

The base of most Dutch Bros smoothies is fruit purée and ice. However, some smoothies contain their branded ice-cream mix, whipped cream, or soft top.

If you like a particular drink, ask the bro-ista if they can make it dairy-free. But beware, omitting the cream will alter the taste.

How many calories are in a Dutch Bros smoothie?

Dutch Bros smoothies are high in calories.(1) Almost all of the calories come from the large amounts of sugar since there’s no protein and very little fat in the staple options.

The strawberry smoothie is the lowest in calories with 500 per medium-sized, while the peach is calorie-dense with 680 for the same size.

Is there caffeine in Dutch Bros smoothies?

There’s no caffeine in the Dutch Bros smoothies as they are. In fact, they’re the safest option for those avoiding caffeine since non of the ingredients contains even a trace amount.

But if you decide to customize them and add a Rebel, espresso shots, white coffee, or chai blend, you’d be adding caffeine.
