McDonald’s smoothies are presented as a healthy alternative drink at this wildly popular fast food restaurant.
With just a few ingredients, it probably is healthier than a glass of sugar water (I mean, soda pop).
However, are those ‘healthy’ smoothies keto friendly?
McDonald’s Smoothies are not keto-friendly. They average 43 grams of carbohydrates in the medium-sized smoothie.
How Many Carbs Are In McDonald’s Smoothies?

|Mango Pineapple Smoothie||Medium||56 grams|
|Mango Pineapple Smoothie||Large||76 grams|
|Strawberry Banana Smoothie||Small||42 grams|
|Strawberry Banana Smoothie||Medium||52 grams|

As you can see, while their ingredient list is really pretty clean, they are packed with sugar, even if it’s natural sugar.
So we’ll leave it to others to decide if McDonald’s smoothies are healthy for their way of eating, but if you’re following a ketogenic diet, you should definitely avoid these drinks.
