I prefer fresh VS frozen Fruit thank you Cons: It does sound like a lot of calories for such a small meal

Nutritional facts seem inaccurate As other people have commented the nutritional information here seems way out - I realize different apps calculate things a bit differently but using the ingredients listed here I can only get it to 255: 1cup non fat vanilla yogurt = 120, 1cup of raspberries = 64, 1/2cup blueberries = 41, and 1/4cup apple juice = 30, total 255. There is also a lot of sugar here from the flavored yogurt, juice and vanilla in the yogurt. I swapped vanilla for plain yogurt and juice for light soya milk and threw in a few almonds which lowered the sugar a little and upped the protein and kept me feeling full. Also it had a thicker, more smoothie like consistency which makes me feel I am getting something more substantial. The inaacuracy in the nutritional facts though does make me question other recipes here, which is a shame. Pros: Quick and easy for on the go Cons: A lot of sugar from fruit, juice and flavored yogurt

Great tasting and filling This is a great tasting smoothie! I like it because you can make any flavors you'd like. I use orange juice and mixed berries to make mine. I have NO idea why the carbs count is so high. I plugged the listed stats into my Weight Watchers online and it said 9 points. I freaked out and plugged each item in manually and it came down to 3. Don't go by these nutrition facts, I think they might be way wrong. Pros: Taste, filling, quick, versatile

Much better if you use tofu instead of yogurt and add some almond or pecans!

You can make it "skinnier" by using non fat yogurt such as stonyfield. I don't see where 335 calories comes from in this recipe. DW SYRACUSE NY
