I am always on the lookout for new ways to include extra protein in my diet, especially for before and after workouts. So when I had the opportunity to try new V8 protein bars and shakes, I jumped at the chance! With 12 grams of protein, 3 grams of fiber, and a quarter cup of vegetables in each shake and 10 grams of protein, 5 grams of fiber, and a quarter cup of vegetables in each bar; they seemed like a great addition to my normal stash of protein and energy bars. I especially loved the idea of some added veggies in the bars, which is something I hadn't seen before.
Now let’s talk about the flavors. I tried the Chocolate, Chocolate Raspberry, and Vanilla Shakes and Chocolate Pomegranate, Oatmeal Raisin, and Chocolate Peanut Butter bars. The Vanilla Shake ended up being my favorite and although delicious on its own, I blended mine with some additional fruit, veggies, and ice to make a protein packed smoothie. The V8 Protein Shakes blends dairy, soy, pea, brown rice and quinoa proteins with sweet honey and sugar and have around 190 calories per bottle.
In terms of the bars, the Oatmeal Raisin was my favorite flavor. The bars are made of soy protein, delicious nuts, oats and spices to give you satisfying delicious energy and clock in at around 200 calories per bar. They taste great on their own and also are a really good yogurt topper.
Now on to the giveaway! So that you can try these new delicious treats at home, I am excited to give away a prize pack of V8 Protein Shakes and Bars. To enter, leave a comment below sharing what shakes and/or bars you are most excited to try.
