Overview

Fruit smoothies have been a popular part of the McCafe franchise, that we see in europe, and now they have been adapted and sold to us. Available in 2 flavours, Strawberry & Banana or Mango & Pineapple, they are a nice refreshing and summery edition to the McDonald’s menu. Or at least, they appear to be…

These are described as Fruit purees and juices, blended with low fat yoghurt and ice – A pretty accurate description, I’ve seen them being made and that is what goes into them. When I first tried each of the flavours, I was pleased, it was flavoursome and refreshing and it actually tasted like real fruit. HOWEVER on my second purchase of a Strawberry & Banana smoothie, which I prefer, I was sorely disappointed.

had worn off and I could see what this really was – about 85% water. after drinking any of these more than once all I could taste was water, and after watching it being made I realised that ice is by far the main ingredient of these smoothies. This isn’t to say that they taste bad eventually, but they definitely don’t taste as good. For £2 I would expect a bigger and much more flavoursome drink.

I suggest to anyone who has only had this once, try it again and see if you aren’t disappointed the second time around. But maybe you will disagree… Remember to leave your thoughts and comments, or start a thread on the Forum! And Vote in our poll!
