Sweet Potato Overnight Oats

We love overnight oats because all the prep can be done the night (or up to 3 days) beforehand! And you can customize the basic recipe any way, so sticking with seasonal flavors and produce is no trouble at all. As you can probably tell, this Sweet Potato Overnight Oats recipe was inspired by one of our favorite fall desserts: sweet potato pie.

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.

Red All Over – Vanilla, Strawberry, and Beet Smoothie

Our Red All Over vanilla, strawberry, and beet smoothie combines two of the most beautiful crimson ingredients and Lily of the Desert Aloe Vera Juice to make one delicious super-smoothie. If you haven’t used raw beet juice in a recipe before, don’t be intimidated.

If it helps, consider adding a couple twigs of fresh mint into the blender for a little herbaceous pop.

  •  2 small-medium beets, juiced
  • 1 cup frozen strawberries
  • ½ – 1 cup vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 2 ounces Lily of the Desert Aloe Vera Juice
