Slimming World smoothies!
I've just bought myself a smoothie maker. If you're like me and get a bit bored of eating the same fruits all the time I think this could help with extra easy. If anyone else has any great fruit or vegetable recipes/pictures please post them
I'm going to be making new ones all the time now especially as summer is apparently coming... !
This morning I made a chocolate banana smoothie:
One packet of options carribean coconut hot chocolate - 1.5syns (I think!)
Two vanilla muller lights
Some ice cubes
Dash of skimmed milk from healthy extra if needed
This made enough for one huge serving or two/three smaller glasses.
Sorry if this has been posted before I'm a newbie!
It wasn't around long enough for me to take a photo but it tasted lovely
Yep think it is Nettie. It's because it's easier to over eat when fruit is pureed. I think the syn values for pureed fruit is in the back of our books.
Yes deffo need to be syned..and with the amount in that smoothie it would be pretty high..all fruits you cook/blend have to be syned im afraid :-(
Sorry Vicky it all sounds lovely but you need to syn the fruits. So 2 bananas ( 5 each ) and an apple (2.5) will give you 12.5 syns plus 1.5 for the options takes you to 14.
Oh no! There was me thinking I was being healthy haha, back to the raw fruits it is!!
Does anyone know if a vegetable smoothie would be ok? Thank you!
Veggies are ok. It's kinda confusing, there are a few theads about this on here if you want to read up more on the topic.

Veggie smoothies would be fine x
aaww I got all excited.
I never really understand it... If I was going to eat 1 apple why cant I blend 1 apple... I wouldn't be eating anymore. I understand if it was orange juice as I could drink pints and pints of fresh orange juice but I don't even eat one orange a week. The science of fruit hey!

Choose to fail or choose to succeed...
It doesn't fill you up as much, so although you may not then eat another apple, you would probably eat something else.

shame as this recipe sounds lovely, although if it does make 3 servings you could always share it with others for 4.5 syns a smoothie
