V8 Protein Review: Shakes & Bars


This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of V8 Protein for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

Have you noticed it’s all about the protein lately? It’s true! Diets high in protein allow your body to rid itself of unhealthy cravings. You know, like the cravings for sugar and carbs since you basically survived December on cookies and mashed potatoes. High protein diets give you energy and keep you feeling fuller longer, and a diet high in protein, with reasonable amounts of healthy fats, is a cravings buster. Trust me.

But, how do you make sure you’re getting enough protein when you’re constantly on the go? Between shuttling kids, commuting to the office (which thankfully is in my house!), hitting the gym, long runs, rushing home to make dinner and check homework, and cleaning the house (UGH!) how do you find time to get the fuel your body needs?

While we normally recommend getting your nutrition from whole food sources, sometimes it’s necessary to have something you can grab and go. Something quick and convenient. Like V8 shakes and bars. V8 (yeah that V8!) has 2 fantastically tasty ways to get protein throughout your day.

V8 Protein Shakes have 12 grams of protein, 3 grams of fiber, quarter cup of vegetables, no high fructose corn syrup, and as much calcium and Vitamin D as a glass of milk. V8 Protein Shakes blend dairy, soy, pea, brown rice and quinoa proteins with sweet honey and sugar. Plus, it tastes way too good to be good for you!

V8 Protein Bars have 10 grams of protein, 5 grams of fiber, no high fructose corn syrup, and a quarter cup of vegetables in each bar. V8 Protein Bars blend soy protein, delicious nuts, oats and spices to give you satisfying delicious energy. They’re crunchy and sweet, definitely a great way to satisfy your sweet tooth while packing in the protein.

I tried all the flavors of shakes and bars, and they were definitely tasty. If I had a case of them in the house, I would probably have to hide them so I wouldn’t drink them instead of water. The shakes come vanilla, chocolate, and chocolate raspberry flavors. I almost felt like I was drinking melted ice cream when I drank the vanilla – it was my favorite out of the three flavors. The bars come in chocolate pomegranate (my favorite!), chocolate peanut butter, and oatmeal raisin.

Even my growing son who is trying to eat me out of house and home liked the shake, and he’s pretty picky. (I told him he was going to be famous on the internet now!).

V8 Shakes and Bars are great on the go, or a pick-me-up after a tough workout. Bring a shake along to drink on the way to work, and stash a bar in your gym bag for post-workout noshing. Good stuff goes in, good energy comes out. Sweetened with honey sugar and brown rice syrup. Protein to keep you powered. Blended perfectly.
