My recipe breaks down with the following: 198 calories, 2 grams of fat, and 17 grams of sugar. The milk had 6 grams of sugar, 6 grams for the yogurt, 4 for the strawberries, and just 1 gram from the whipped cream. I used a container of Dannon Light and Fit Greek Yogurt, which is where 80 calories came from.
The milk had 43 calories, 45 from the strawberries, 80 from the yogurt and 30 from the whipped cream equalling 198 calories. Not bad, right?! If you’re a Weight Watchers person, the point value on this drink is 4 points.
