    don't even go there!!!

    it's quite high sins due to the fact that it would be wasted calories.

    for example say a glass of orange juice contains the juice of 12 oranges. you could drink that without even thinking about it, but if someone gave you 12 oranges to eat you would probably eat 2 or 3 then give up!

    Also you use some calories to eat the fruit whereas you use almost none to drink a smoothie/juice

    oooh!

    So if I use my milk from my HE & add a banana & some strawberries, all fresh, this is bad??? I thought it would be ok as it's not tinned fruit & it's not processed like innocent smoothies. Just the same as having a glass of milk and eating a nana with strawberries.:cry::cry:im sad now...............:sigh:

    unfortunatley it doesn't work like that - as fruit is only free when it has chewability factor as it takes longer to consume when eaten whole and it would satisfy your appetite more if you ate rather than drank.
