if i make a smoothie with 1 med. banana, apple & pear. Does this count as 1 portion of my five a day (as its a juice) or does it counts as 3 portions. Many thanks for your help.

It would count as 3 or more (depending on the size of the fruit) servings if the whole fruit is included in the smoothie. If you juice the fruit, ½ cup of juice would count as a serving.
