Since many fast food chains are now joining the smoothie trend that is rocking the world, we have to consider who is selling smoothies and who isn’t.
You and I know that we can go to Tropical Smoothie or Smoothie King to get our fix. But, if we are already stopping in at Wendy’s for a bite to eat, it’d be great to get our smoothie and our food all in one go!
But, does Wendy’s even sell smoothies? The internet is rife with confusion, and I am here to clear it all up. So, to answer your burning question, does Wendy’s have smoothies? Keep reading to find out!
Does Wendy’s Have Smoothies?
Sadly, Wendy’s does not sell smoothies. If you look around the internet, you are sure to get some confusion, this is because there is a place named ‘Wendy’s Milk Bar‘ that does sell smoothies.
However, this is not the same Wendy’s as we are all familiar with.
Wendy’s, the fast food chain, does not sell smoothies, so you are sure to be disappointed if you go in there thinking you can get a tasty and healthful treat to satiate your cravings.
As far as anyone knows, Wendy’s have never had smoothies on the menu and there is no sign of them considering adding them in the near future either.
So, sadly, Wendy’s is not an option for smoothies. However, you can still get smoothies at McDonald’s, as well as the primary smoothie brands such as Jamba Juice, Smoothie King, and smoothies at Tropical Smoothie!
Best Drinks At Wendy’s
Although you won’t be able to get a smoothie from Wendy’s, you can get plenty of other delicious drinks.
Wendy’s has a whole roster of drinks on offer and as of 2023, they have released a new lineup of ‘Summer Lemonades’. So, this means that this year you have even more delicious options to choose from.
Let’s take a look!
Wendy’s Summer Lemonades Lineup: Best Choices
In Wendy’s new lemonade line-up for 2023, you can find 4 select lemonade flavors. These flavors include:
- All-Natural Lemonade.
- Strawberry Lemonade.
- Pineapple Mango Lemonade.
- Blueberry Pomegranate Lemonade.
While the All-Natural lemonade is definitely the “OG” as Wendy’s calls it, some of the other flavors really have something to offer.
Although the Blueberry Pomegranate is certainly something to behold, the most popular is actually the Strawberry Lemonade!
This lemonade is a combination of Wendy’s sweet signature strawberry puree, the classic lemonade base, and real strawberries. This lemonade comes in at 260 calories for the smallest size. It contains 65 grams of total carbs, with 61 grams of this being sugars. It also has 30 mg of sodium.
Another very popular beverage item from Wendy’s is their frosties. Frosties are milkshakes like a mixture between an ice cream and a milkshake. They have 2 flavors, chocolate and strawberry. Let’s look at these separately.
You can get a chocolate frosty as a junior size, classic, medium, or large. Be aware that this frosty contains milk and soy.
Classic chocolate frosty gives you 310 calories, 9 total fats, 30 mg of cholesterol, 180 mg of sodium, 49 total carbs 40 sugars, and 10 grams of protein. Although this is generally unhealthy, the addition of protein is beneficial for energy and can help monitor blood glucose levels according to nutrisense.io.
The large chocolate frosty contains 500 calories, however, which is a lot higher, and is around 1/4 of your daily recommendation.
The strawberry frosty also comes in sizes; junior, classic, medium, and large. A classic has 320 calories, 8 grams of fats, 35 mg of cholesterol, 160 g of sodium, 54 grams of total carbs, 47 of which are sugars, and 9 grams of protein.
Although you might think that the chocolate frosty would contain more calories this is not the case, as the large strawberry frosty has 520 calories.
However, these frosties also contain a decent amount of protein which can help your body absorbs the sugars slower, lessening the sugar dosage entering your bloodstream!
