    It depends on what fruit it was and how much you used?

    Interesting topic. I made myself a banana smoothie this morning with a banana and milk from my HEX allowance. The pureed banana worked out 4.5 syns and it wasn't even that big!!! Very filling though.

    If you look in the syn section of your sw book it does give syns for fruit puree, for instance I make raspberry puree from fresh and its 0.5 syns for 57g.

    It starts at the bottom of page 14 and up to page 16 before the ices start :D

    Hope that helps

    Well strawberries are half a syn per 28g, blueberries 1 syn per 28g and raspberries half a syn per 57g.

    Not sure how you would work it out where it's mixed - perhaps you should count it as the highest value just to be on the safe side
