During the summer months, refreshing cold drinks are a staple in our home. I’m so glad that I’ve discovered a new drink that is as tasty as it is healthy. Have you ever thought of drinking an aloe based drink? Me either, until I tried ALO – one of the tastiest healthy drink I have ever tried.
ALO is made of Aloe Vera plants that are grown USDA organic, and is not made from powders or anything artificial – just straight up aloe pulp from the plant leaves. Additionally, it’s low in calories and gluten free! Did you know that ALO is the first aloe vera beverage that received the Non-GMO project verification?
For me, healthy drinks have always been notorious for having a funky taste, but I was pleasantly surprised when I decided to enjoy a big cold glass of this stuff when the temperatures here in Dallas hit the 90’s. It arrived in a nicely packed box that was fun to open, with plenty to read while enjoying it.
ALO comes in 9 unique flavors, 3 light flavors (less sugar) and 2 coco-exposed – a coconut/aloe fusion drink.
- Aloe Vera & Honey
- Aloe Vera, Watermelon & Peach
- Aloe Vera, Pomelo, Pink Grapefruit & Lemon
- Aloe Vera + 12 fruits and vegetables
- Aloe Vera, Mangosteen & Mango
- Aloe Vera + Olive Leaf Tea
- Aloe Vera, Pineapple, Guava & Seabuckthorn Berry
- Aloe Vera & Wheatgrass
- Aloe Vera, Pomegranate & Cranberry
- Aloe Vera & Honey
- Aloe Vera, Orange & Passion Fruit
- Aloe Vera, Cucumber & Cantaloupe
So I decided to take it a step further…
It was perfectly delicious all on its own, but hey – its summer, so why not be fun? With a simple mixer, it looked and tasted like something that you drink on the beach (minus the rum). I poured some into a highball, and drizzled some grenadine into it.
I don’t know about you, but I LOVED shirley temples as a kid!
Then I added the finishing touches – maraschino cherries and poured over ice….
