Instead of making just one smoothie, I assemble an entire week's worth for a quick post lunch snack or a light meal on the go. What makes my smoothie prep even quicker is the addition of V8 V-Fusion+Energy. Plus, I get a nice "zing" for when that afternoon slump kicks in.

Meal prep is so key to preparing delicious and nutritious meals for myself and the family during the week. I plan my menu and ingredient list over the weekend and do prep work when I can. One of my most time saving tricks is to make smoothie packets and freeze them so they're ready to go with little mess or fuss.

I usually hit my midday slump right when it's time to pick the babes up from school. Not only am I pressed for time but I'm also in no mood to wash, cut, and assemble all of the ingredients for a snack. With pre-made smoothie packs and V8 V-Fusion, I can easily bring my energy up and take my treat with me as I head out the door.

V8 V-Fusion+Energy makes it very easy to rev up with the natural energy from green tea. In addition to getting a much needed boost, there's also a serving of fruits and vegetables. They taste like fruit so it's delicious and blends well with the the frozen smoothie packs.
