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!!
Real Fruit Smoothie Recipe
By Divas Can Cook
- 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.
