Best Panera drinks!
While we rank the flavor below we have some clear favorites. You can red their full descriptions below.
- Frozen caramel cold brew

Panera soft drinks
I’ll start with the traditional soft drinks and sodas you can get pretty much everywhere.
I won’t rank these since they are pretty much the same everywhere you go.
Just keep in mind they don’t have a ton of sodas available, so if fizzy drinks are your favorite pick you’ll find the offer to be reduced.
- Diet Pepsi
- Mist Twist
Panera Frozen drinks
These two drinks were impossible to rank. They are both just as good and it honestly depends on what type of persona you are: a caramel one or a chocolate lover?
Frozen caramel cold brew
This Panera frozen drink is really good! It’s cold brew coffee blended with ice and caramel sryup and topped with whipped topping and a generous caramel drizzle.
It’s sweet, it’s caffeinated and it’s exactly what an afternoon pick me up should look like.
A serving has 490 calories
Frozen chocolate cold brew
This drink is not as sweet as the frozen caramel cold brew and it’s packed with chocolate flavor.
It’s made with cold brew coffee blended with ice and their famous bittersweet chocolate syrup. Then it’s topped with whipped topping and a chocolate syrup drizzle.
If you need a pick me up and some chocolate this is exactly what you need. Each serving has 450 calories.
Panera Bread smoothies
Strawberry banana smoothie
The strawberry banana smoothie is probably one of the most popular ones and with reason. So delicious!
It’s made with strawberry puree, bananas and Greek yogurt so it has a nice little bit of protein. It’s also blended with ice to make it incredibly refreshing.
Honestly it’s a super creamy smoothie with the right balance of flavors. It has 250 calories per serving.
Green passion smoothie
This drink has a tropical flair and it’s perfect for the hot Sumer months when you are craving something that’s delicious but feels light and healthy at the same time.
The Panera Bread green passion smoothie is made with passionfruit juice, fresh spinach, peach puree and mango puree. It’s all blende with ice.
This one doesn’t have greek yogurt so it’s a little bit less filling but that also makes it a great alternative for those that are looking for a dairy free and plant based alternative. It also has 250 calories per serving.
The mango smoothie tastes just like a mango smoothie should taste: like mango.
This smoothie is made with mango puree, orange juice, banana puree and Greek yogurt. Everything blended with a good dose of ice.
It’s tropical, it’s filling and it’s the perfect breakfast smoothie. It has 300 calories per serving so it’s the highest calorie smoothie from their drinks menu.
Peach and blueberry smoothie with almond milk
The peach blueberry smoothie with almond milk it’s good but it’s not as good as some of the other alternatives. It’s plant based and vegan tho so that’s something.
It’s made with peach and mango puree, fresh blueberries, almond milk, passion fruit juice and white grape juice (but I honestly can’t feel the grape juice).
Strawberry puree + strawberry juice + Greek yogurt + ice = Panera strawberry smoothie.
This is my least favorite drink from this list. Not because it’s bad, it’s not, it’s actually delicious but there are some amazing smoothies at Panera that feel more fun and elaborated.
This tastes kind of a like a smoothie you could whip up in a couple of minutes at home. It has 270 calories per serving.
