PRODUCT: McCafé Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie

When you’re passing by McDonald’s on a hot day, cool down with a McCafé Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie.

Very fruity, lightly sweet but not sugary, and icy cold, we were tempted to have another as soon as we finished the first.*

The company says that the drink is “made with an alluring combination of blueberries and raspberries and a splash of pomegranate juice blended with ice and creamy low-fat yogurt.”

So why is it called Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie instead of Blueberry Raspberry? Our guess is that “pomegranate” tested better with consumers.

And “splashes” of other juices are blended in as well, to get just the right flavor. The nutrition label lists, in order of the quantity (weight) of the ingredients:

Blueberry purée, pineapple juice concentrate, raspberry purée, apple juice concentrate, pomegranate juice concentrate, peach juice concentrate, pear juice concentrate and lemon juice concentrate.

What lingers is the lovely summer flavor of blueberry. The special McCafe machine creates the drink with a texture motr like a Slurpee rather than a conventional smoothie, but we’re not complaining: A Blueberry Pomegranate Smoothie is a great vacation from heat and humidity.

*What stopped us from having another were the carbs. The 12-ounce size (small) has 220 calories and 50g carbs, of which 44g are sugars. There is, however, 2g of protein from the yogurt.
