    0% fat free greek yoghurt, put a few drops of vanilla essence in, a teaspoon of splenda, then fruit it up with what ever u have, i love strawberrys. the yoghurt is 0pts and the fruit should be abour 0.5

    What are the cals etc in it??? I know things like Jelly are free cos theyre about 10 cals but anything over that counts... are you SURE you were using the right calculations?

    Still those greek yogs are awesome to put in curries, they give it a really nice taste, a good alternative to cream

    0% total fat free greek yoghurt, 150g pot, but you can buy big family pots too, so more may still be 1 pt if that makes sense

    The way WW work it out would be its 1 point for 100g per the values on the tub so for 150g youd add half that on again. I can see how youre working it now but thats not how WW work it

    Thats not the books... thats the way WW themselves work things out. So much so they used to give you a wee calculator when you joined classes which broke it all down and explained it. I only go by the books if Im really stuck but the using the details on the pack and halving it etc is the formula WW use.
