This summer McDonald’s is introducing a new item to their smoothie selection. The Mango Pineapple Real Fruit Smoothie features a combination of mangos and pineapples blended with low-fat yogurt, ice and a little bit of fruit juice concentrate. Last month I attended a McDonald’s First Taste Event in New York and got to sample this new McCafe addition. I’ve actually never tried any of the smoothies from McDonald’s. I’ve heard mixed comments about the Wild Berry Smoothie and the Strawberry Banana Smoothie, but this Mango Pineapple “real fruit” Smoothie was quite good – sweet and refreshing. A small 12 oz. serving contains about half a cup of fruit, but I do wonder how the overall nutrition of the beverage compares and also how much added sugar is in the beverage. The Mango Pineapple Real Fruit Smoothie will be available at McDonald’s this July – ready for the summer!
