I have been on a bit of a smoothie kick lately and would love to know how y’all calculate points for smoothies. There is a bit of a controversy out there in Weight Watchers land about whether or not to count fruit in smoothies. Personally I usually don’t count it if it is whole fruit without any sugar added, but everyone seems to have a different opinion. What do you think? My leader told me its up to each individual person, but that if you consume multiple smoothies or go past the daily recommended servings of fruit, then you should start counting. Makes sense to me. But no matter how you count it, this smoothie is a keeper. Fresh carrot and orange juice blended with mango, pineapple, and just a hint of lime juice. It’s incredibly refreshing and makes a perfect post workout snack.
