    Hmmm I don't know.

    Strawberries are half a point for a normal serving.

    Mango is also half a point for a normal servind (a slice).

    Orange juice is the killer. A small glass is about 1.5 points, depends on how much you think was in there.

    thank you so much girls!! :)
    think I might give it 3.5 - do you think that'll cover it ok? (thanks sparkle, didnt know that about oj - will steer clear from it in my future smoothies)
    grrrrrrrr - HATE guessing things!!
    Thanks again xx

    I would say that that would MORE then cover it! To be honest they probably didn't use that much OJ (with all the juice in the other two fruits). Basically (if you can be bothered to measure out some water to see) 50ml is half a point, 100ml is 1 point etc etc. In a glass it doesn't really look like that much.

    I only have about 50ml of OJ with my breakfast in the morning - that's mainly to swallow vitamin pills with though. Two sips and it's gone!

    I think 3.5 will be plenty!! Probably over generous but I have to admit Im like you, I prefer to over guestimate than under :)
