Berry Delicious Smoothie Recipe

Berry Smoothie Graphic with Aloe

Ready for another delicious Lily recipe? Our new Berry Delicious Smoothie is loaded with great flavors and essential nutrients to help support your immune system. Time to fire up the blender!

Key Ingredients for Improved Immunity

Fruits like Blueberries, Strawberries, and Raspberries are great sources of Vitamin C and antioxidants. As many natural cellular processes in our body create waste in the form of free radicals, antioxidants work to clear these issues and reduce any inflammation that may arise.

Oranges also have high Vitamin C content, which is thought to help white blood cell production. Plus, they’re perfect for peeling and dividing directly into the mix.

Almond Milk contains Vitamins A, D, and E. These three ingredients will give your immune system a big push for enhanced protection. Try for the unsweetened version, since the fruit used here will provide all the sweetness you crave.

Chia Seeds aren’t just a fun way to add texture to your smoothie. They’re known to be rich in antioxidants and can help balance your gut health, and thus naturally improving the strength of your immune system.

Finally, Lily’s Aloe Vera Juice has over 200 biologically-active components like vitamins, enzymes, amino acids, and polysaccharides. Each of these elements offer great benefits like balanced digestion, helping to increase nutrient absorption, and, of course, healthy immunity. Plus, with the addition of Aloesorb, our products are clinically proven to help increase immune support, nutrient absorption, antioxidant support and detoxification!

Our Berry Delicious Smoothie Recipe

 1 Cup Blueberries

1/2 Cup Strawberries

1/2 Cup Raspberries

1/4 Cup Almond Milk (Unsweetened Vanilla)

4 Tbsp Lily of the Desert Aloe Vera Juice

1 Tbsp Chia Seeds

1 Orange (Divided)

During these summer months, we suggest using frozen berries or previously freezing the fresh ingredients overnight. Frozen berries make for a frosty and refreshing smoothie!

How to Prepare

  • Combine your Blueberries, Strawberries, and Raspberries into the blender
  • Peel and half the Orange, putting both sides in
  • Pour a ¼ cup of Almond Milk (or whatever milk substitute you enjoy)
  • Add 1 tablespoon of Chia Seeds
  • Add 4 tablespoons of Lily of the Desert Aloe Vera Juice
  • Blend and enjoy!

Why Add Aloe Vera?

While you might not think of aloe as a great addition to a smoothie, it’s an excellent choice when it comes to supplementing your delicious creation. Aloe contains many vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin B, C, and E, which are great for boosting immune support. It’s also one of the few plant sources of Vitamin B-12.

With any recipe, it’s important to make sure the things you’re putting into your body are nutritious, and not relying on unnecessary empty calories. Aloe vera juice is perfect to add in to give your drink a much-needed infusion of essential nutrients.

Holiday Detox Smoothie Recipe

Detox Smoothie Recipe with Aloe

 

The Holiday season is upon us, and with it comes wonderful time spent with friends and family, eating delicious foods and treats piled on top of each other in ginormous mounds, forcing us to loosen a few buttons on our pants.  We all do it, even though we know we shouldn’t and it is not good for us to pile on the calories like that, but it only comes a couple times a year, so we just let ourselves go.  But then the guilt comes; “Why did I have 3 helpings of stuffing ladled on top of mashed potatoes?!”.  But with all the goodies that come during a holiday meal, it is easy to get way off course. Our bodies are in overload, shocked that they could fit that much food into one meal.  You need to bring balance back your system so that it can go back to absorbing the necessary nutrients to keep you healthy.  Time to detox.

Toxins play a big role in keeping your cells from absorbing nutrients when they need them, causing your body to have oxidative stress and be more susceptible to illness.  And this time of year, with cooler temps and everyone else around us getting sick, we have to keep our health in check even more.

Here is a simple recipe for a detox smoothie that includes our Aloe Vera Juice made with Aloesorb that has been clinically proven to help reduce toxins in the body.

LILY DETOX SMOOTHIE

-1 apple, cored and roughly chopped

-1/2 of a cucumber

-3 stalks of celery

-1 slice of avocado

-1 cup of spinach or other leafy greens

-Squeeze of a Lemon

2 ounces of Lily of the Desert Preservative Free Whole Leaf Aloe Vera Juice

Add items to blender and blend until smooth.  Ice and cilantro optional.
