McDonald’s Mango Pineapple Smoothie Review

All That's Left is the Cup

I’m In Love With a Mango Pineapple Smoothie

I just finished drinking my first McDonald’s Mango Pineapple Smoothie, and it won’t be my last.

I sucked this down so fast that I had a massive ice cream headache.  The flavor of mango in this smoothie is heady, with just a slight aftertaste of pineapple.

It was creamy.  Real creamy!  And did I mention that flavor?

A friend of mine said she wouldn’t try it because it’s made of a mix instead of fresh fruit.  She has no idea what she’s missing.  Mix or not, this is the best I’ve had in quite a while.

As I’m following the Tweets flying by on Twitter, I’m seeing comments that many McDonald’s are running out already.  I’m not surprised!

I’ve also seen many Tweets that said “Just had my third (fourth or fifth) Mango Pineapple Smoothie of the day at McD’s.”

It sounds like McDonald’s has a winner here.

Can I Make My Fruit Smoothie in My Food Processor?

food processorI want to make a smoothie with ice, frozen fruit, and yogurt, but I only have a food processor. Can I do that with a processor, since I don’t have a blender? Or will it not work?

Have You Made a Smoothie in a Food Processor?

Normally, fruit smoothies are made in a blender. I’ve never tried it any other way. If you have used a processor to make a fruit smoothie before, successful or not, I’d love your feedback!

Making a Frozen Watermelon Drink

Frozen Watermelon Drink

Who doesn’t love a good Frozen Watermelon Drink?

OK. Maybe this isn’t really frozen, but it sure looks good!  On top of that, I love Rita’s accent.

I don’t know about you guys, but for me there is nothing that spells summer like watermelon.  Bundling the sweet goodness of watermelon into a watermelon drink just sounds mouth-watering!

This recipe is quick and easy, requiring only three ingredients to make. I might add some ice cubes to thicken it a bit, but what can I say… it isn’t my recipe!

A watermelon drink provides a healthy dose of:

  • Lycopene, a powerful antioxidant
  • Vitamin A, to improve eye health and boost immunity
  • Vitamin B6, to help the immune system promote antibodies
  • Vitamin C, to bolster the immune system’s fight against viruses and fight infections
  • Potassium, to help prevent muscle cramps

One cup of watermelon juice, the main component of this watermelon drink, contains only 71 calories.
