Recently I tried something new. Diana from Aloic contacted me to see if I would like to try their Aloe Vera Drink. I said Yes, Please. So she sent me a few bottles to taste and experiment with. But before I get down with a review, I wanted to share some information about Aloic with you from their Website. Check them out here. 

Here’s Their Story: This is taken directly from their website. At Epicurex LLC, we are devoted to sharing the exotic tastes of Asia with the rest of the world. We are proud to produce only drinks of the highest quality, freshness, and authenticity, using only the best all-natural, USDA organic ingredients that taste great and contribute to a healthy lifestyle.

That has been our mission since we started our company: to create superior beverages that taste like sea breeze and sunshine. And here in South Florida, we’re doing just that with Aloic™, a tasty fusion of certified organic aloe juice and pulp, with no preservatives, nothing artificial, and no high-fructose corn syrup – just plenty of flavor.

We invite you to get to know us – and our products – better. We think you’ll find that we’re just what you’ve been searching for: all natural, all delicious, and all about healthy living, wherever you are.

Here’s some additional information taken directly from their webpage:

TOP REASONS TO DRINK ALOIC

Aloic™ is good for you — really, really, good for you. Aloe Vera can aid digestion, and even help you lose that pesky belly fat.

It also tastes great. The real aloe pulp in Aloic™ adds yummy texture, and you’ll know you’re drinking more of the good stuff that’s also good for you.

It’s all natural, too: certified organic aloe and pulp, no preservatives, nothing artificial, no high fructose corn syrup or fake flavors or colors. And Aloic™ is only 60 calories per serving.

Your kids will love the taste of Aloic™, and it’s a much better choice for them than those soft drinks or sugary fruit juices they usually go for. Tuck one into someone’s lunchbox, today — maybe even your own.

Another great reason to drink Aloic™? Aloe vera can help you to live longer. It’s true: Published studies have shown a 10 percent increase in lifespan, as well as beneficial effects on age-related illnesses. Aloe contains glycoproteins and polysaccharides, which aid the healing process and stimulate cell growth and repair, so you can start feeling good all over.

But the top reason to drink Aloic™ is the way you’ll feel when you make it part of your healthy lifestyle — but we can’t tell you about that; you’ll have to experience it for yourself.

So go ahead. Try it. Love it. And feel the benefits of real, organic aloe vera as they go to work for you.

So now to the fun part, reviewing Aloic.

I am not shy with my option and I must admit, I love to try new things! So first I tried Aloic right out of the bottle after a 45 minute walk on the treadmill. I was thirsty and my throat was dry. I immediately noticed the natural sweet grape flavor, and liked it very much, but what I really enjoyed was the pulp texture in the drink. So refreshing. So after a few swigs, my thirst was quenched, and I was ready for an after workout smoothie. So I grabbed some frozen fruit from the freezer and pulled out my smoothie blender, along with my favorite protein powder and of course the rest of my Aloic Aloe Vera Drink.

Before work I made a treat that I could enjoy later in the evening. I am loving making my own frozen fruit bars. bars. Today’s pops are Lite Pom juice with Frozen Raspberries. Here’s a link to the other frozen treats I have made recently.

Chobani and Granola Pops

Frozen Fruit Bars

I had fresh raspberries that I froze with the intention of using them in the fruit bars. I thought having them frozen would make it easier to chop them up and add them into the molds.

I broke up the frozen raspberries and dropped them into the molds, then topped off with fruit juice.

The Lite Pom is really lite. There is no added sugar in this juice, so if you like your frozen fruit bars to have a sweeter taste you should buy the regular juice or add a sweetener to it. I like mine lite so the flavor works out great for me.

Frozen Raspberry Pops.

After making up these fresh pops, I made a cold salad to bring to work and enjoy at lunch, in the mix is, spinach, cucumber, avocado and a sliced egg. Topped with vinegar and a touch of oil. I love a cold refreshing salad on a hot day.

After work I came home and grabbed a Frozen Raspberry Pop. Loved it!

Stuart also thought they were good.

Random Question of the Day: Does this hot weather affect your workouts? I do my 2 mile walk in the early morning before it hits 90 degrees. What do you do to  stay fit in the summer without killing yourself in the heat?
