Frozen Fruit Salad Daiquiri & GIVEAWAY

This post brought to you by ALO Drink. All opinions are 100% mine.

Once upon a time when I worked in Call Center Land, one of my co-workers would frequently bring bottles of ALO, an aloe vera drink to work. I'd never heard of drinking aloe vera and thought the whole thing sounded weird - I mean, isn't aloe vera for treating wounds? Once I actually tried one, though, I was hooked - this stuff is SO good! It's even become my four year old's favorite treat. If I really want to reward him for extra awesome behavior, he gets a bottle of ALO.

ALO takes organic aloe vera juice and pulp (not powder like some competitors) and mix in fruits, vegetables and other good-for-you tasty things (like honey) to make drinks that are nutritious, super hydrating and flat out tasty. They're also naturally low calorie, fat free and gluten free - and Non-GMO Project verified.

While I love drinking ALO straight from the bottle, I was challenged to come up with a fun cocktail using ALO as a base and had a lot of fun doing it. I took my favorite flavor from the ALO original line and blended in some frozen fruit to make a tasty daiquiri-style drink (feel free to add rum to yours but I think it's pretty good by itself!)

Because ALO drinks are so hydrating, it's perfect for the super hot weather we've been having. If you decide to add rum to yours, be sure to drink responsibly!


  • ALO Comfort (Aloe + Watermelon + Peach)
  • 1 cup frozen raspberries
  • 1 cup frozen peaches
  • Juice of half a lime
  • Lime slices for garnish

  1. Add half of the bottle of ALO, the frozen fruit and lime juice to a blender. Blend until smooth.  
  2. Add ice as needed to increase thickness.
  3. Pour into margarita glasses and garnish with a slice of lime.

If you haven't yet, be sure to check out ALO drinks (I get mine in the refrigerated beverage section at my local grocers). They have 9 flavors in the original line as well as 3 flavors of ALO light and 2 flavors of Coco Exposed - an aloe vera and coconut water beverage.

  1. This sounds so healthy and refreshing. We had aloe on a trip to Mexico and it really made me want to try it in a bunch of different ways. This is a perfect first recipe to try.
