When you measure the ounces for meats it is typically measured out on a weight scale and the meat should be cooked first before being weighed.

Measure by weight. There are some really nice inexpensive scales on amazon, but once you find one you like,you'll end up using it a lot!

I would weigh the fruit (in ounces or grams) and then use a measuring cup to measure out the almond milk. The almond milk is a liquid. It starts off as a liquid and comes in a container with nutritional information on its label that says a serving is equal to a certain measured amount (in a measuring cup). So, use a measuring cup to measure the almond milk. So far as the fruit... Even though you are blending the fruit, it is actually a solid when you start out and then you are changing it into a liquid when you blend it...but, it doesn't come in a liquid form naturally and so nutritional information for fruits is based upon weight (which is why you need to weigh it).

Ok, thanks so much! I didn't realize the difference for liquids and solid foods.

I have another question. The way I'm eating my fruit is by blending it up in a blender with some almond milk, making it liquid. so should I go by the liquid volume for the right amount? I'm sure I'm drinking enough. I mix just enough almond milk in it for a thinner smoothie and probably about 2 cups of frozen fruit with it. That makes about 3 cups total almost. but I'm mixing this for my husband as well, he said he wanted about 10 oz.

Oz as a volume measurement should only be used when measuring liquids. For solids, oz. means weight.

It typically means 3 oz of weight not 3 ox of volume. 3 oz is the recommended serving of chicken.
