So Fresh and Green Smoothie (with Aloe H2O)

Unfortunately, many health drinks have high amounts of sugar in them. This is something we wanted to be mindful of (and avoid) when we created our newest beverage line — Aloe H2O. It has only 3g of sugar per serving … just enough to balance aloe vera’s naturally bitter flavor. And not only does Aloe H2O taste great on its own, but it also makes a great liquid base for smoothies, especially because it adds nutritional value without adding a lot of sugar to the usually-fruit-based recipes. For the So Fresh and Green Smoothie, we in particular liked using Pure Aloe H2O because of the subtle cucumber flavor that it contributes. Try it for yourself and see what you think!

Aloe Detox Juice

Make sure you get your daily serving of veggies, and while you’re at it, make it hot. This Aloe Detox Juice recipe calls for produce you probably already have in your fridge, including a jalapeno — just in case you need some extra help waking up this morning!

Cranberry Honeydew Smoothie

This Cranberry Honeydew Smoothie is another convenient 5-ingredient recipe that we can totally get behind. The sweetness of honeydew is pleasantly tempered by 100% cranberry juice, and plain Greek yogurt and a banana make for excellent nutrient and texture contributors. The hardest part about this recipe is remembering to cube the honeydew and get it into the freezer ahead of time. But, if you’re not much one for day-before prepping, no worries. Just add ice to the recipe as needed.
