Low-Sugar Jamocha Shake Recipe + More Low-Sugar Shake Recipes

Aug 26 2021
Classic recipe remake! People are obsessed with the Jamocha Shake at Arby’s, but it’s a bit steep in the calorie and sugar department… A small has 590 calories and 82g of sugar! We first blended up a swap years ago, but now we’ve given it a 2021 update. The flavor is perfectly mild — more like a vanilla shake with a hint of mocha — just like the original.
