Bonnie-that is correct--when using a recipe, all the nutrition facts are added up and totaled for the point value, and I agree--not fair, and I choose to use the simple calculation method and add up the total point value for each ingredient individually. It has worked for me, and I have done it from day one--now almost two years ago.

That's good to know...I am a big smoothie person but was amazed at how many points the recipe section on the website lists for smoothies. I did read somewhere that the fruit and veggies get counted into the total if using recipes and that just doesn't seem fair since the fruits and veggies are 0 point foods on their own.

That's what I was thinking too. I searched all the materials that came with my "at home kit", and it really wasn't clear on those type of things. Thanks again for replying. emoticon

I can't claim this is the official word on the subject, but my own method is to count only the points for ingredients that have points on there own....I would only count the milk--that is how I always count things like that. For example, I eat fruit and yogurt parfaits a lot that I make at home...I count all the unsweetened fruit as 0, and I count the yogurt based on the volume I am using. Hope this helps.

I have a question about counting points for a homemade smoothie. I am following the Weight Watchers Points Plus from home program. My question is... if I use all fruits that are "power foods" in my smoothies, do I count the milk only that I use? Example: 1 Mango, 2 cups of fresh pineapple, 1 banana, 2 cups of coconut milk, do I count the points for the milk only since all power fruits are free? By the way, this made two smoothies. I am confused lol.
