The Nutritionist Reviews: V8 Smoothie Review and Vera Bradley Giveaway -->

V8 Smoothie Review and Vera Bradley Giveaway

V8 recently came out with some new products called V-Fusion Smoothie.  I was interested to try these because I like the V8 Splash drinks and also like smoothies. The company contacted me and asked if I wanted to try these and I was very excited to.

On Saturday morning, my husband and I opened up the strawberry banana smoothie for breakfast.  We enjoyed it with eggs, canadian bacon, and a piece of toast.  We both really liked the smoothie. It tasted similar to other V8 products but was thicker (like a nectar consistency). The banana flavor was real tasting and not too overpowering. I added a little bit of water to mine because it was a little bit too sweet.  My husband liked it and drank it straight. The mango smoothie is also great! It is tropical tasting and fresh.

Here is some information about these new products: The delicious V8 V-Fusion Smoothies are available in three flavors— Strawberry Banana, Mango and Wild Berry. This healthy treat makes it easy to enjoy a real-fruit smoothie without a blender or trip to a smoothie bar. V8 V-Fusion Smoothies provide one full serving of fruit and one full serving of vegetables, with no added sugar, artificial colors, flavors or preservatives – all for only 130 calories per 8-ounce glass. 

***Also, I just noticed on the company's website that they have a coupon for $1 off any V8 Smoothie product if you want to buy one in stores.

Giveaway 
This fabulous gift pack will contain 3 bottles of V8 Fusion Smoothies, a Vera Bradley Tote Bag, and a neat glass water bottle for taking your smoothie on the road with you!

  1. Those look great and super handy for mornings that I don't have time to pull out the blender. Also, the glass cup would be perfect.

  73. Please be careful about assuming this is as healthy as eating fruits or vegetables. Apparently food technologists have found a way to concentrate sweet potato juice so that it can stand in for corn syrup.
    Here is a quote from a June 2009 issue of "Food Product Design" which I can no longer find on the web:
    "Juice concentrating technology creates a juice concentrate that is a close match in sweetness to 42 HFCS. “Our most-successful match at the moment is a sweet-potato juice concentrate which, depending on the application, can replace 100% of the corn syrup in equal amounts,” says Wells. The sweet potato juice contains mostly sucrose."
    I'm not saying that is what is going on here, but I would say you are better off eating whole fruits or vegetables.
