2.5 pt Smoothie

Recommended Posts

My daughter drinks the Carnations Instant Breakfast quite often while dashing out the door for school so I thought I'd try to make a smoothie for her, out of it.

 

I came up with the 2.5 pt smoothie.

 

1-pkg SF Carnation Instant Breakfast, we used chocolate

8 oz FF milk

1 c frozen fruit, we used strawberries but next time we'll use bananas

 

Blend and enjoy!

 

This ended up with 1 svg dairy, 1 svg fruit, and 7g of fiber! Delish!

How can this only be 2.5 points?

 

Isnt a cup of FF milk 2 points by itself? One cup of frozen fruit another point?

 

Im confused, although it sounds really good.

Because of the fiber in the Instant Breakfast.

I think Diana is right. The fiber is capped at 4g and that cap would need to include the fruit. Each serving would be 4 points or more depending on the fruit. 1.5 points may not seem like a lot but if you miscalculate 1.5 points for each meal and a snack that is 6 points per day or 42 points per week. That is a lot of exercise to make up for a little bit of a rounding error or ignoring points. When you first join WW and have a lot to lose, it may not matter. However, as you get closer to goal or have less to lose, you will be closer to 20 points a day. An "extra" uncounted 6 points per day is increasing your daily allotment by almost 30%. Not counting the extra points now may not serve you so well in the long run.
