Nutella-Coconut Smoothie for 5.5 Weight Watchers Points


I named this the Funky Mud Smoothie so as to be more attractive to the kids.

Ingredients: 

1/2 banana (about 2 oz.) for 1 point
1/2 cup sweetened almond milk, sweetened chocolate almond milk, or Fat-Free milk for 1 point
1 Tablespoon shredded coconut (I keep mine in the freezer) for 1 point
1 Tablespoon Nutella for 2.5 points
1/8 tsp. vanilla extract, coconut extract or both for 0 points

Remember....spinach is 0 points too and that is why mine looks Funky/muddy, and because I used the sweetened chocolate almond milk. Baby spinach does not affect the taste, however, and it's a great way to work in a serving of vegetables.

Fast Tip:  Place your banana chunk(s) topped with 1 Tablespoon of Nutella on a cookie sheet and place them (nontouching) in the freezer.  Once frozen, place in individual baggies and throw in a tablespoon of shredded coconut.  Seal the baggies and put back in the Freezer for a quick way to blend up that smoothie. Here are my Frozen bananas, Nutella, and coconut batches that I just throw into the blender as they are and add the remaining ingredients.
