Strawberry, Banana and Mango Smoothie- 1 Points Plus- Recipe Week 4

112711 008

Ingredients:

  • 1 Banana
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen strawberries
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen mango
  • 1/3 cup light vanilla yogurt
  • 1 cup of crushed ice
  • 1 Tbs. Splenda (optional)

Directions:

  1. Put the banana in the blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Add the strawberries and the mango, one at a time, until smooth.
  3. Add the yogurt and blend.
  4. Add the crushed ice and blend until it is a smooth consistency.
  5. If needed, add a little Splenda for sweetener.

I use frozen strawberries and mango to make my smoothie. It also makes it extra creamy if you use a frozen banana! I put them in the microwave for about 20 seconds before adding them to the blender to soften them up a bit. This makes one smoothie for 1 Points Plus. Enjoy!

If you are questioning how I counted the points for this, please visit my post on the WW Online Recipe Builder. As always, you are free to count points however you wish- this is just my way of doing it and what works for me.

  5. This smoothie does sound good, and I'd definitely leave out the sucralose. I usually add spinach to all my smoothies. And yes, the frozen banana makes all the difference.
