I don't know about you, but I'm a sucker for fruit smoothies. I find it hard to resist the smoothie place at our local mall - and usually end up getting the LARGE.
A few weeks ago I had the chance to try the new McCafe Mango Pineapple Real Fruit Smoothie at McDonald's and let's just say I'm in love. With a smoothie. If you love pineapple and mango and yogurt...I think you'll be a fan too.
I love the flavor - and being a Disney fanatic, the pineapple-ness reminded of me of the pineapple Dole Whip. Or maybe that was just me wishing I was at Disney. Either way, it was good. And, I love that the smoothies are made fresh while you wait. These come straight from the blender to the cup. Heck, I even talked to the employee making mine.
The smoothies are available in small (12 oz), medium (16 oz) and large (22 oz) sizes, and provided up to 3/4 cup of fruit and 25% of the daily recommendation of vitamin C in a small size. You can also choose to have your smoothie made with or without low-fat yogurt. (Resource: McDonald's).
And because I love you, my dear readers, I want to share some of this smoothie deliciousness with you...with one minor caveat.
I have several "Be Our Guest" cards good for one FREE SMALL Mango Pineapple Real Fruit Smoothie and I'd like to share them with you. However, the cards are only redeemable at McDonald's Restaurants of NW Ohio or SE Michigan.
So, if you are local (northwest Ohio or southeast Michigan) and you're one of the first 6 people to comment, shoot me an e-mail (tcurth2002 at msn dot com) with your name and mailing address and I'll send you a coupon for a free smoothie. It's that easy.
