    Hi,

    I did SW years ago and after trying all other diets known to man I fancy coming back!!! I have taken a fancy for having blueberry and banana smoothies - using frozen blueberries and banana with skimmed milk. Would this be free if I used the milk as my healthy extra. Are frozen fruits free?

    Thanks for your help

    Sorry hun, but smoothies aren't free - as soon as you puree fruit it has a syn value. Frozen fruits are free though, so why not grab a bowl, start munching through and just wash it down with your milk as a Hex x

    No blended fruit is free, even if it's frozen.

    Same applies to cooking, pureeing and mashing of fruit.

    The fruit is free but the minute you start blending fruit on SW it has a syn value - for example, one blended banana is 4.5 syns.
    Don't go there hun. x

    Just thought I would add that, if you puree mash blend or cook fruit, its no longer free. That means it has syns. So dont puree mash blend or cook fruit unless you want to syn it.

    :D :D :D :D

    Tee hee!!! We all hit the post button at the same time I reckon Minx :)
    It's one of those questions that should have an auto answer on, along with the 2 or 4 ryvitas, are mullers free etc etc.....

    *my turn to run away*

    annoying isn't it - I love fruit smoothies

    However, rather than have a chocolate fix I'll have a smoothie fix and not syn it - using yogurt rather than milk .............

    naughty but nice.
