The warm weather is starting to win the battle over winter, and that is making us think about summertime picnics in the park with some of our favorite seasonal produce. Take this Strawberry Mint Watermelon and Aloe smoothie, for instance. It pairs two juicy, sun-ripened fruits with herbaceous mint and super-hydrating coconut water to create a cool, refreshing ode to summer in a glass. To make the smoothie, blend 2 ounces of Lily of the Desert Aloe Vera Juice, frozen strawberries, coconut water, and fresh watermelon and mint sprigs with ice, as needed. And since the crazy fluctuations in weather we’ve experienced lately have been known to cause unfortunate (or at least annoying) side affects for your health, we decided to add ginseng to the mix to help bolster immune support. Enjoy!
