Weight Watcher’s Fruit Smoothies Two Ways

I have a number of fruit smoothies I like depending on what is in my refrigerator and freezer.   You can vary the frozen fruit (bananas and strawberries are favorites), use juice, milk or yogurt – it is all good!

WW Fruit Smoothie

  • 3/4 cup unsweetened pineapple or orange juice
  • 8 frozen strawberries ( prior to freezing I always cut them up in smaller pieces)
  • 1 frozen banana, sliced
  • fresh strawberries for garnish

Combine the juice, strawberries and the banana in a blender.  Puree until very smooth.  You may need to add more fruit or juice to get the right consistency.  Garnish with a fresh strawberry.

Serves 2

Weight Watcher’s Points value of 2 per serving

WW Fruit Smoothie

  • 3/4 cup fat-free milk
  • 3/4 cup ice cubes, crushed (I have an old-fashioned ice crusher or just put some ice cubes in a plastic bag and crush them with a meat tenderizer)
  • 1/2 cup light strawberry yogurt
  • 1/2 cup frozen unsweetened strawberries
  • 1 small firm banana, chopped and frozen
  • 1/8 to 1/4 cup Splenda (I do not add any)

3 points value per serving (this recipe makes 3 servings)

Comment:   If the smoothie is too thin, add more fruit; if it is too thick, add more liquid.
