Spiced Pumpkin Smoothie

Forget a #PSL … make a pumpkin drink with a little more substance. In our Spiced Pumpkin Smoothie, pureed pumpkin and a banana blend together smoothly, and fresh ginger and cinnamon will really warm you up. Plus, pumpkins are loaded with beta-carotene, they’re low in calories, fat, and sodium, high in fiber, and they’re good sources of Vitamin A, Vitamin B, potassium, protein, and iron. Enjoy all that this quintessential fall vegetable has to offer!

Cranberry Aloe Fizz

This beautiful Cranberry Aloe Fizz is one way to get festive for the upcoming holidays. The ginger ale and cranberry (make sure it’s 100% juice!) are a wonderful combination of tart and sweet, with a little ginger kick. The rosemary sprig adds a nice aromatic element, and bubbles in your drink always turns an ordinary day into a special occasion. Just add your daily serving of Aloe vera juice, and you’re good to go!

So Fresh and Green Smoothie (with Aloe H2O)

Unfortunately, many health drinks have high amounts of sugar in them. This is something we wanted to be mindful of (and avoid) when we created our newest beverage line — Aloe H2O. It has only 3g of sugar per serving … just enough to balance aloe vera’s naturally bitter flavor. And not only does Aloe H2O taste great on its own, but it also makes a great liquid base for smoothies, especially because it adds nutritional value without adding a lot of sugar to the usually-fruit-based recipes. For the So Fresh and Green Smoothie, we in particular liked using Pure Aloe H2O because of the subtle cucumber flavor that it contributes. Try it for yourself and see what you think!

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.

Apple Chia Smoothie

There’s something about this Apple Chia Smoothie that is intensely satisfying — it’s cold, creamy and so perfectly encapsulates autumnal flavors (cinnamon, nutmeg, fresh apples). And adding a serving of Lily’s aloe gel (amplified with Aloesorb™) and a serving of chia seeds (those little fellas provide more Omega-3s than salmon!) leaves you feeling oh-so good. But, take it from us: the key to this recipe is to make sure the ingredients are cold (or you can add ice), and that the smoothie is blended ultra-well.

Hydrating Mango Smoothie (with Aloe H2O)

You may have already been introduced to our new line of flavored aloe water — Aloe H2O. As a gluten-free product with low sugar content (only 3g per serving), an ice cold bottle of Aloe H2O is the perfect aloe-enhanced thirst quencher for your active lifestyle. But, that’s not all that Aloe H2O is good for. Case in point, we created this Hydrating Mango Smoothie using the delicious Peach-Mango Aloe H2O as our liquid base. Try it and let us know what you think!

Aloe Detox Juice

Make sure you get your daily serving of veggies, and while you’re at it, make it hot. This Aloe Detox Juice recipe calls for produce you probably already have in your fridge, including a jalapeno — just in case you need some extra help waking up this morning!

Tropical Refresher (With Aloe H2O)

Our new Coconut-Lime Aloe H2O is delicious and refreshing all on its own, but it can also be a fantastic starting place for something a little more exotic. Next time you’re enjoying our aloe-enhanced water, try something as simple as adding a little freshly squeezed tropical flavor, a little ice, and see what happens.

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.
