Yeah I like my cheesecakes and I’m a jollier chick if I start my day with Starbucks but wouldn’t call myself addicted. I don’t know what it is about McDonald’s smoothies though. Yeah they are tasty but I’m sure I’ve had better. For some reason though I just COULDN’T STOP DRINKING THEM!! That $2.79 for a small cup adds up fast when you are chugging back 3-4 a day! I found myself begging my husband to pick me up a cup every time he’d go out. Eventually he’d tell me no and I’d completely blow up at him.
I haven’t even tried the wild berry kind, God forbid I do! I’m so disappointed in myself for spending so much money on these things. I hear they aren’t even all that healthy anyway. I had to come up with my own strawberry banana smoothie recipe to help the transition off this smoothie crack go easier.
I must say that rehab is going great!!! Since this blog post I have not had a McDonald’s McCafe Real Fruit Smoothie in 5 days and honestly…..I’m not even craving them anymore! It may cross my mind to sneak off and get one but I just whip up this delicious smoothie recipe and my craving is nixed!!
I don’t ever want to go down this path again. If you too are struggling with McDonald’s Real Fruit Smoothie addiction then I hope you find help in this recipe. Remember I’m here for you, if you find yourself getting weak just drop me and email and make this smoothie immediately!!
- ½ cup french vanilla yogurt (I use Stoneyfields organic yogurt)
- ½ cup frozen strawberries
- ½ of a small banana
- 2 Tablespoons of milk or apple juice 1-2 teaspoons of sugar (I don't use sugar when I'm using apple juice)
- Place all ingredients in a blender and blend until desired constancy is reached.
*Note* I don’t use ice since I use frozen strawberry but you can use ice if you’d like.
