Chill With a Protein Blast
You can have a regular protein bar any time of year, but a frozen protein bar is a cool way to boost energy when it's hot. Each of these protein juice bars has 130 calories and 11 grams of protein. The bars have no added sugar, and they're fat-, cholesterol-and lactose-free.
