Like Burger King, McDonald's is far from a basic place to eat a hamburger now. It developed throughout the years, and now the restaurants always have McCafé, too! You can have a tasty beverage in any café, but McDonald's tries to step up the game with unique flavors. Therefore, let's look at the top ten McDonald's drinks you should try!

10. Mango Pineapple Smoothie

Is the copycat as good as the original?

smoothie at McDonald's? Why not – it's actually a blend of mango and pineapple, so we wouldn't hesitate! McCafé offers only two smoothies, and one of them is as bright yellow as the fruits reminding you of summer. Hence, we highly recommend a mango pineapple smoothie when it's a hot day and you need something refreshing!

With a mixture of mango and pineapple, this smoothie also has low-fat smoothie yogurt and loads of ice to make the beverage ideal for hot summer days. Close your eyes and get a mango pineapple smoothie, and you'll be teleported to an exotic destination in your mind. A good drink is sometimes enough!

9. Mocha Frappe

The Old Nerd says this is his favorite one!

A type of coffee that every café must own is mocha, so you'll find a good mocha in McDonald's, too. However, the best mocha in the café is definitely Mocha Frappe. Whipped topping and chocolate drizzle over a lot of ice make this one even better!

You might prefer a classic mocha instead of Mocha Frappe because frappe naturally has less caffeine than actual coffee. However, mocha is a type of coffee with a taste so strong that a frappe with mocha would probably work as a well-balanced version. Hence, it definitely won't be too sweet for you!

8. Iced Caramel Macchiato

Check out their helpful tips!

Caramel is one of McDonald's favorite ingredients in sweet beverages. Hence, you'll find it in various recipes inspired by McCafé's coffee and frappe types. One of the favorite McDonald's drinks iced coffee is Iced Caramel Macchiato. This one combines some of the best stuff from the store – macchiato is never a wrong answer, anyway!

Moreover, this macchiato looks so satisfying, as its bottom is light with a darker top. What you add to the caramel syrup here is the dark-roasted espresso, accompanied by milk and water. Loads of ice are also included, so you'll like to order this one when it's too hot, and you need something to awaken your senses!

7. Iced French Vanilla Latte

Is it as good as people say it is? Hear his words!

Do you want to order something that literally screams "the sweetest combo in the café" and "one of the best coffees in McDonald's" simultaneously? Search no more, as Iced French Vanilla Latte has what you wish! An overwhelming vanilla flavor in this one might be too much for some people, but you hit the jackpot if you're a fan of vanilla!

If you're not a fan of latte and prefer a classic coffee with this taste, you can also order Iced French Vanilla Coffee, which is equally good. Since latte is a creamier version of coffee, maybe you don't want too much cream in your combination, and that's OK. Iced French Vanilla sounds like paradise in any way!

6. Caramel Frappe

The answer is: Yes, you can prepare it at home!

We've already mentioned various caramel coffee types from McDonald's on this list. However, what if you don't like coffee, and caramel is your biggest passion? We have an alternative for that since caramel frappe almost contains no caffeine! Only a hint of coffee can be found in this recipe, and it definitely isn't the main ingredient.

The boss of this recipe is caramel, as its flavor is especially rich in frappes. This kind of beverage is usually blended with ice and has a lot of caramel and whipped cream on top. It feels like a colder version of already cold ice cream, with only caramel awakening your senses. It has a lot of calories, but this delight is worth it!

5. Premium Roast Coffee

People in the comments section agree that this coffee is fantastic!

Does caramel frappe have too many calories for your healthy lifestyle? Would you prefer a classic beverage to keep you awake and focused without adding too much sugar? Among McDonald's drinks, coffee is the best option for you, and McDonald's has dark and strong enough coffee to satisfy your needs! The name "premium" says it all!

McDonald's ensures your coffee is freshly brewed and 100% Arabica beans. Yet, it's so affordable that you'd think it tastes average. Believe it or not, Starbucks drinks are the same thing for more money! Of course, there are zero calories in this beverage, no matter if you order a small, medium, or large cup.

4. Hot Chocolate

Do you agree with Sarah's preferences?

If public opinion impacted this list, hot chocolate would take the first place effortlessly among hot Mcdonald's drinks. And we agree it's magnificent! This smooth combination of chocolate syrup, milk, and chocolate drizzle over whipped cream is a dream come true. No wonder people usually rank it as the best McDonald's beverage!

When you're looking for a decent cup of hot chocolate, it matters that the beverage is creamy and sweet and as smooth as possible. Luckily, McDonald's hot chocolate meets all the standards, and you can get it for a reasonable price. Its chocolate syrup is made of real dark chocolate, and you still get milk inside, too!

3. Chocolate Shake

A chocolate shake is always a good answer!

This might be a bit controversial, as McDonald's considers shakes as desserts, but isn't it a drink, anyway? The fact that it's a dessert just shows how sweet and creamy this beverage is! When someone wants to order a shake at McDonald's for the first time, chances are they're about to order a chocolate shake, as it's well-known for its fantastic taste!

If you're looking for the best chocolate beverage in the café, the shake is a perfectly smooth blend with creamy whipped topping! Moreover, this shake won't be a chocolate rush in your brain, as it's actually a blend of chocolate syrup and vanilla ice cream. Hence, the amount of chocolate in the shake is well-balanced.

2. Vanilla Shake

He said 10/10!

This one will probably be an unpopular opinion, but a vanilla shake could even taste better than a chocolate shake! It's always a debate whether a strawberry shake is worth drinking. Still, when it comes to vanilla, it's the best answer whenever you don't know which shake to order. Definitely the most smooth taste ever!

Sometimes, your vanilla shake can taste like a banana because of baristas' mistakes. Still, if you like this fruit, it can get even better! However, the actual ingredients in this shake are vanilla ice cream and vanilla syrup, blended in that perfect light yellow/white combination. Together with whipped cream, the taste is a chef's kiss!

1. Strawberry Banana Smoothie

Arguably the best smoothie in the world!

Did we mention that a strawberry shake might sometimes not be the best choice? Strawberry banana smoothie is here to do it justice since it's always a good answer! McDonald's makes strawberry banana and mango pineapple smoothies, so it depends on your taste which one should be your choice. Still, the strawberry banana smoothie is the smoothest combo!

The smoothie's pinkish color looks so satisfying that you'd think it's a mixture of five or more ingredients. Nevertheless, it's just a blend of strawberry and banana with yogurt and ice. Icy and cold, creamy and sweet, it's probably the best drink to order at McDonald's, so don't hesitate to try it!

Luckily, McDonald's is a large fast-food company, and you can find these top ten drinks basically anywhere in the world. To make it even better, they're all affordable and cheaper than in the regular cafés. Hence, you can freely try any of them, and let us know if you like the flavors!
