I love discovering new combinations of fruit juices to mix with my aloe vera smoothies in the morning (it’s always nice to shake things up every now and then!) Recently, we asked our customers to tell us what their favorite juices to mix with Lily of the Desert’s aloe vera products are, and to our surprise, an overwhelming amount of people said that LEMONADE was at the top of their list. Well, of course it is! Who doesn’t like cooling down with a freshly juiced and lightly sweetened glass of good ol’ fashioned lemonade?
So, here at Lily, we thought we would take that idea and kick it up a notch by creating an immune-boosting version of this tasty drink. What better way to enhance the wonderful health properties of this fruit — my favorite summer citrus, by the way — than by adding Lily of the Desert’s aloe vera juice. It is certified-organic and has been amplified with Aloesorb, which has been proven to help increase immune support by up to 16%, so you can feel even better about your summertime treat.
Check out the recipe below and let us know what you think. Maybe you have ideas about how to make it even more delicious? Feel free to experiment and make it your own. (But don’t forget to the report back with your yummy findings!)

*tip: when possible, try using local honey to help relieve any symptoms of pollen-related, seasonal allergies.
