How Many Calories In A McDonalds Frappe?

The McCafe menu at McDonalds offers a variety of treats including the McDonalds Frappe. So just how many calories in a McDonalds Frappe?

This mocha and caramel drink offers 450 calories in a 12 ounce drink. This size of drink is considered to be the small size at McDonalds.  If you are trying to cut back on your calories, this is the only size of Frappe you should consume, aside from avoiding the drink altogether.

The large size Frappe is nearly twice the calories, sugar and fat.  In the small size there are 20 grams of fat, 55 mg of cholesterol and 57 grams of sugar.  This is not the drink recommended for people who suffer from diabetes or are experiencing problems associated with blood sugar levels and spikes.  The drink is too sugary and does not offer a lot of nutritional value.

Splitting the small Frappe drink with a friend or loved one may be the best thing to do if you are trying to cut back on your calories. In doing so, you cut the calories in half and only consume about 225 calories instead of 450 calories.
McDonalds may advertise their healthy and low-cal choices, but the Frappe is not one of these foods.  There are a lot of calories in a Frappe that are derived from the excess amount of sugar found in the drink.  This drink is not recommended if you are trying to cut calories.
