For anything you are going to eat or drink, you'd need to  check that all the ingredients are compliant -- meaning no added sugar or dairy or other non-Whole30 ingredients.

If you read through the Can I Have list (https://whole30.com/2013/06/the-official-can-i-have-guide-to-the-whole30/) you'll notice that this is what it says about smoothies:

Smoothies: We’d rather you didn’t

This is a very popular question, with a very unpopular answer. Smoothies (generally made using lots of fruit) are technically compliant on your Whole30, but we strongly recommend against it. Food that you drink sends different satiety signals to your brain than food that you chew. So when you drink your meal, your brain isn’t getting the feedback it needs to tell your body that it’s had enough of what it needs. Plus, smoothies are generally really fruit-heavy, and starting your day off with a liquid sugar-bomb sets you up for cravings, hunger, and volatile energy levels throughout the day. In summary, we’d rather you just eat the food, and skip the smoothie.

 

So, if all the ingredients are okay -- as in it's nothing but fruit -- and you really want to, you can, but it's not the best choice out there.

Just checked the Jamba Juice website, and they list frozen yogurt as an ingredient in  their smoothies -- that would not be okay.
