5 days ou of the week I have a smoothie which consist of a serving of ea. blueberries, banana, mango, and 1/2 cup pineapple juice. Could I count this as 4 servings of fruit?

One serving of fruit is equivalent of ½ cup of fresh/frozen/canned fruit, ¼ cup of dried fruit, and 4 oz (½ cup) of fruit juice [See Our Visual Fruit & Veggie Serving Reference]. From my calculations you are consuming 4 (½ cup) servings. This would be equivalent to 2 cups of fruit. To make sure you’re getting enough fruits and vegetables each day, check out our Fruit & Veggie Daily Intake Chart.  Keep up the good work!
