Healthy Banana Smoothie - 2.5 pts


Weight Watchers Banana Smoothie Recipe
This is a quick and easy, low point, healthy breakfast I like to make when I am on the run. It's delicious! I usually keep the vanilla yogurt in the freezer. Otherwise, I would add some ice.

  5. How many points will this drink be if I add either Nesquick or fresh strawberries?

  6. I don't use nesquick, but if you add 3/4 cup of fresh strawberries, it would be 2.75 points per glass and I'm sure it would taste great!

  7. My WW leader says there is no such thing as 2.5 points. She says if it is more than 2 then it is 3. Would you agree?

  8. If I had 2 glasses of this rather than one, the points would be 5 rather than 6 so no, I don't personally agree with that. But that's just me.

  9. i believe one sering of this is more like 3.5 points. do the math,,,banana is 2 pts, the yogurt is 1 point, the 2 cups of milk are 4 points. That totals 7 points. Divide by 2 = 3.5 points per serving.

  13. I made this smoothie and both my bf and I LOVED it- it tastes like a banana milkshake! I made it 3 or 4 times in 3 days haha. The last time I added some chocolate syrup and subbed some 1% chocolate milk for the skim and made another delicious treat! Re-posted both of these on my blog here:

    Hi Gina. Thank you again for an amazing recipe and site! Last night before I went to bed, I put my banana and yogurt in the freezer. This morning I made this and I added about 2 tsp. Of hershey's dark choc. Cocoa powder and a drizzle of honey and it was amazing!!! Milkshake for breakfast?? That's a "diet" I can live with!!LOL I started making your recipes about 2 weeks ago and I have lost 6 lbs so far and my family can not believe that they are eating healthy! Thank you again so much

  20. Hi Gina! When you add blueberries or strawberries or any other fruit about how much do you add?

    ReplyDelete
  21. So delish! I made this and could not believe how tasty and filling it was- added strawberries to make it pink. Yummy!

  22. I tried this... made a slight modification. Only used 1 cup of milk. Also tried it the way the recipe states. Liked it, but I also didn't have a ripe banana (so it wasn't totally awesome).

    But, this morning... with a ripe banana... one cup of skim milk? OFF THE CHAIN! Breakfast has never been so fun. Now, I had 2 servings of it... with a Smart Ones Breakfast Wrap. Love Love Love the smoothie. Also made the Santa Fe Chicken... ridiculously good. Trying the creamed spinach next week AND the Green Monster Smoothie. And, going to make the skinny mozzarella sticks this weekend for my guy friend (who opposes healthy food).

    Great looking recipes that are healthy? I'm so ALL IN.

  24. My son is having oral surgery and will be on mainly liquid diet for a few days. I still want to keep all of his nutrients in; but make it taste so good! He is getting this on day 3! He will love it! Me too, it's so easy. Thanks Gina!
