New must try product!
V8 V-Fusion Vegetable & Fruit Smoothie
When I was home last week my dad introduced me to a great
new product. It is strawberry banana flavored smoothie made by V8. At first I
thought it was just strawberry and bananas. As I started to read the label I
was surprised to see there are actually vegetables in the mix too. One 8 fl.
Oz. serving is one full serving of fruit and one full serving of vegetables
(1/2 cup of each). The USDA recommends a daily intake of 2-1/2 cups of
vegetables and 2 cups of fruit for a 2000 calorie diet. There is NO added sugar
and NO high fructose corn syrup, and yet the sweet refreshing taste completely
covered the taste of the vegetables. The drink is low in saturated fat and
cholesterol and certified by the American Heart Association.
The product is great for people who do not normally eat
vegetables because they do not like them. It is also great for people who are
just looking for a healthy snack! It could often be hard to get your children
to eat vegetables. I would recommend this as a substitute so they don’t miss out
on the vitamins and nutrients found in vegetables. There are NO artificial
colors, flavors, or preservatives. I have been rifling through these things. I
have drank around ten bottles in the past week and a half. I just can’t get
enough of them. There are 4.5 servings in each bottle and a bottle cost could
range $2-$4 depending on where you go. I haven’t tried the other flavors yet,
but I intend to and I hope you all do the same!
