I picked up two bottles of Alo drink yesterday from Whole Foods. Left to Right: Enrich Pomegranate and Cranberry, Appeal Pomelo Lemon and Pink Grapefruit
I spent this Labor Day weekend at my mom's house. I love going home, I get to see my two fluffy puppies, and get to eat my mom's home-good cooking. I got my love for good, healthy food from my mom. Growing up, I always had fresh salad on my plate, my mom rarely took my brother and I out for fast food, and each spring, summer, and fall she took us out to pick fruits and veggies.
I often learn about new food products and cooking gadgets from her, and this trip I was introduced to Alo drink, an aloe vera based juice. I use plain aloe vera for my hair, but have never drank it. I don't know why, but it just never appealed to me. My mom offered me an Alo drink, and I kindly declined, but then she forced me to have a bottle, lol. That's my mom. But I'm glad she did because this stuff is delicious. It tastes like fruit juice, but most of the ingredients are water and aloe vera juice. It's also really refreshing.
The one downside is that this stuff is pretty expensive. One bottle is around $2.50, and a pack of 12 on Amazon are about $20. Regardless, if you get a chance, try some. They're a great alternative to soda and regular juice. They may not be an everyday thing, but they will keep you from drinking the super sugary stuff.
