I am a brand ambassador for Central Arkansas McDonalds. While I am being compensated for this post all thoughts and opinions are my own.
Yesterday I told you that my word of the year is focus and in that post I talked about really focusing on my health in the coming year. One of ways I am choosing to focus on my health is making better food choices. I am self proclaimed McDonalds Frappe addict and while there is nothing wrong with enjoying the occasional Frappe sometimes is good to swap it out for something a little healthier.
I was at my favorite central Arkansas McDonalds the other day and decided to forgo my usual Frappe for a Strawberry Banana Smoothie. Now while I may be a Frappe addict this smoothie was out of this world amazing!! It tasted really fresh and didn’t send me into a sugar coma afterwards either. HA!
But really though…just for fun let’s compare the nutritional info on the medium Caramel Frappe vs the medium Strawberry Banana Smoothie.
The medium Strawberry Banana Smoothie has half the calories, 21 fewer grams of fat, 20 fewer carbs, 100 fewer grams of sodium, and 17 fewer grams of sugar than the medium Caramel Frappe. WOW!! I love that while is really is heather for you the taste is still on point. McDonalds also uses real fruit puree and yogurt that contains live and active cultures. Go McD’s!!
So it tastes great and its good for you?! I am officially SOLD!!
Like I said earlier, I am not giving up on my frappes, I am just cutting back and substituting some of them with smoothies. I also need to get back to the gym but that’s a post for another time. Ugh.
Have you tried any of the McDonalds Smoothies??
Which flavor is your favorite??
