Apple Chia Smoothie

There’s something about this Apple Chia Smoothie that is intensely satisfying — it’s cold, creamy and so perfectly encapsulates autumnal flavors (cinnamon, nutmeg, fresh apples). And adding a serving of Lily’s aloe gel (amplified with Aloesorb™) and a serving of chia seeds (those little fellas provide more Omega-3s than salmon!) leaves you feeling oh-so good. But, take it from us: the key to this recipe is to make sure the ingredients are cold (or you can add ice), and that the smoothie is blended ultra-well.

Tropical Refresher (With Aloe H2O)

Our new Coconut-Lime Aloe H2O is delicious and refreshing all on its own, but it can also be a fantastic starting place for something a little more exotic. Next time you’re enjoying our aloe-enhanced water, try something as simple as adding a little freshly squeezed tropical flavor, a little ice, and see what happens.

Banana Chocolate Overnight Oats

Banana chocolate overnight oats is the kind of recipe we love because you get all the satisfaction of a nutritious breakfast, but all the hard work takes place in the fridge while you’re sleeping! Next time you have an early morning, spend about 15 minutes the night before prepping this recipe, stick it in the fridge and forget about it until you’re walking out the door. You won’t be sorry!

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.
