Notes

In order to calculate the smart points on a recipe you have to enter the ingredients in manually (by creating a recipe in the recipe builder) not by the nutritional information. Since this recipe contains zero point items the app doesn't realize there are zero point items in the recipe and will calculate it based only off the nutritional information which is not accurate.
