Many of you know I started CrossFit a few months ago. I’ve been trying hard to get healthy which for me means cutting out the carbonated sodas and finding alternatives. I love water but sometimes, I really want something more. Well I found ALO, which is a Aloe Vera based water and wow, I’m seriously LOVING IT!! I’m really trying hard to find natural products and this really hits the spot. They start with real aloe vera (not the powder stuff), which is hand picked from their organic aloe vera farm and then hand filleted, ensuring quality, freshness and goodness that is straight from the leaf, never from powder. The aloe pulp is actually IN THE WATER….seriously.
ALO has 9 original flavors and 3 light flavors along with 2 flavors of Coco Exposed (an aloe & coconut water mix). Check out these drinks that have all real fruits and veggies mixed in with a variety of healthy ingredients. Not only is ALO Drink the largest ready-to-drink aloe vera beverage in the supermarket, it is also the first aloe vera beverage to receive the Non-GMO Project Verification. It is all natural, low in calories, gluten-free and fat free.
After finding a great healthy drink, naturally I want to incorporate it into my daily life! Thus, I had to put it into a smoothie! I thought it would be a perfect addition to a smoothie because it’s healthy, fresh and has so many great ingredients! I picked up some berries and other fruits from the store, added some Greek yogurt, put it into my mixer and BAM, healthy made easy! I freeze the smoothies and eat them in the mornings for an easy healthy breakfast on the go.
I really love this product. It’s delicious, healthy and fits into my active lifestyle. ALO is also doing a few things that you really want to be aware of too. They are holding a Facebook Giveaway ALO Contest for US residents until July 11, 2014. Each winner receives a sampler pack of all of the current ALO Drink varieties!! If you’ve never tried ALO or don’t have access to ALO in your area can enter by simply writing down why they want ALO to send them a sampler pack on a piece of paper and take a photo of that. Fun / creative drawings are welcome as well. ENTER HERE
Another cool feature of this drink: on every bottle of ALO Drink, there is a QR code that leads to a specific song that was made specifically for that variety. Gotta love free music! Click here to visit the ALO Drink SoundCloud home page and listen to all of the songs.
As a dad, I’m proud to let my little one have one of these! No soda, no add sugar, just a healthy drink that was the FIRST Aloe Vera beverage to receive the Non-GMO project verification. (Learn More) Check it out at a store near you & make sure to try the smoothie recipe! You’ll be glad you did!
