The real reason fruit juices and smoothies have SmartPoints®
When I add fruit to the smoothie recipes I create, it counts SmartPoints values for it! Fruit and most vegetables are Zero 0 SmartPoints when you eat them. But NOT when you drink them, because eating and drinking are different experiences to the body…. It would take you a lot longer to EAT all the fruits and vegetables you blend into a beverage or smoothie, than it does for you to sip or slurp them down! If it is for something you will eat—like a soup, sauce, stew, or salsa—fresh fruits and most vegetables remain Zero SmartPoints values in those recipes.
Smoothie bowls are delicious and nutritious stand-ins for ice cream on a hot day. For instance, the below recipes are no more than 8 SmartPoints value; for a similar weight approximately grams , light vanilla soft serve ice cream is 18 SmartPoints value. A whole pint of Halo Top vanilla bean ice cream is 9 SmartPoints value. Here's why you should pour your thick smoothie into a bowl: you actually eat it. Here's why:.
Fruit and most vegetables are zero when you eat them. But once they become part of a smoothie, the experience of eating them changes. But this will be gone in a few sips. The result: you may get hungry sooner and be more likely to eat more later. The SmartPoints plan encourages the consumption of fresh fruits and vegetables as part of a healthy pattern of eating.
