If you are the kind of person who loves a Mcflurry with their McDonald's, you might be craving this sweet treat on the weekend, but in order to stay on track with your weight loss, you need to ensure your tracking the syns in this dessert on the slimming world.
Mcflurry's have on average 15-17.5 syns for their full-size version and between 6-7.5 syns for their mini-size versions, making them a very high syn dessert choice, we would only suggest having a McFlurry as the occasional sweet treat on the plan.
Down below in our syn guide, we will discuss why McFlurry's are so high in syns, some varying syn values and low syn alternative desserts from other fast food chains.
At 15-18 syns for a full-size version, McFlurry's are very high in syns, even their mini version takes up half of your daily syn allowance. These desserts get their high syn value from the ice cream which is high in fat and sugar, the additional add-ins like chocolate then also add extra syns.
For example, the Galaxy cookie crumbles full-sized McFlurry has up to 46g of sugar and 14g, 9g of which is saturated making it very unhealthy. To save syns, we would suggest choosing mini McFlurrys when possible.
All of McDonald's McFlurry's have a similar syn value no matter the flavour you choose, they can vary slightly, however.
