Orange & Aloe Mocktail for Dry January - Lily of the Desert

Orange & Aloe Mocktail for Dry January

The New Year is always a great time to hit the reset button and Dry January is a wonderful way to help your body recover from your overindulging during the holidays. There are many great recipes for mocktails that allow to feel like you are still enjoying a drink with friends without the potential side effects of alcohol. In this recipe, we are focused on helping you stay sober conscious while boosting your immunity. So let’s get started. 

Good For You Ingredients

Start with the simple syrup: This recipe shares common ingredients with the Bella Hadid + Erewhon KINsicle smoothie that debuted this month to celebrate Dry January. 

Turmeric is a great anti-inflammatory ingredient that also boosts antioxidant support and immune health. But it also has a strong flavor so we are adding it into a simple syrup for this recipe:

  • 1.5 tsps ground turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp ginger powder
  • 1 TBSP orange zest
  • 1 cup of water
  • 1 cup of stevia or xylitol

In a small pot, heat stevia and water to a boil, stirring frequently. Turn heat to low and add turmeric, ginger, and orange zest. Simmer for 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let steep another 5 minutes. Strain through filter or sieve into a sealable container and chill until ready to use.

Health-Boosting Juices: You will add this Turmeric simple syrup to a combination of fresh orange juice and Lily of the Desert Aloe Vera Juice over ice. Orange juice contains the powerhouse immune-boosting Vitamin C and our own aloe juice contains over 200 active components to help support an increase in nutrient absorption. Our aloe juice is also clinically proven to help support your immune health. 

For Immune Boosting Juice, mix together:

  • 1 ounce of Fresh Orange Juice
  • 2 ounces of Lily of the Desert Aloe Vera Juice
  • 1 TBSP of Lemon Juice (optional)
  • Orange wedge to garnish
  • Then add Turmeric simple syrup and stir.
