Update: There's now Mango Pineapple to choose from as well. I thought a citrus based flavor was missing. My new fave!
A new healthy smoothie recently appeared on the scene, and it's actually from none other than McDonald's--home of The Big Mac and famous fries.
McDonald's smoothies are now available as part of its McCafe beverage line in two flavors--there's a Strawberry Banana McDonald's smoothie and a Wild Berry McDonald's smoothie to choose from. Both contain low fat yogurt and real fruit.
My tester and I gave them a go one 100 degree plus day in Vegas recently and overall our verdict was that the McDonald's smoothies are refreshing, fairly sweet and despite the fact that they are supposed to be different flavors, it is really hard to distinguish between the two.
The consistency and flavor most closely resembles the Berry Smoothie that Costco sells for about $.75 less a pop (not including the $50 per year membership).
Both McDonald's McCafe smoothies in the small 12 oz. size are 210 calories, half a gram of fat, 2 grams of protein and the Strawberry Banana flavors have 2 grams of fiber, while the Berry Smoothie has 3 grams.
