The other week Say Aloe, who make delicious Aloe Vera Drinks with real Aloe pieces, invited me to join their ‘Say Aloe To New Adventures Challenge’ and I couldn’t wait to give it a go. The idea behind the challenge is that you don’t have to go out of your way to discover something new; for example you don’t need to go to India to eat Indian food, and you don’t need to travel to Africa to try Aloe Vera!
Say Aloe isn’t a drink that I’ve tried before but it really is delicious. It has a lovely, slightly sweet taste, and a unique texture thanks to the real aloe pieces. It’s the ultimate refreshing and hydrating drink to enjoy in the sunshine and in addition it is fortified with vitamin C; with one 500ml bottle of Say Aloe providing 100% of our daily intake of vitamin C, which is crucial for your immune system.
I opt’d to try Say Aloe’s reduced sugar and zero sugar varieties, making them a delicious and healthier alternative to fizzy drinks. Each of the 500ml reduced sugar bottles contains between 80 to 96 calories and come in three delicious flavours; mango, strawberry and original.
In my opinion the Say Aloe drinks would be ideal as a pre or post workout energy boost/replenisher or drunk over ice in the sunshine. I’ve been loving sipping on Say Aloe in the garden when I want a sweet but healthier alternative to fizzy drinks.
To give you some background to Say Aloe’s drinks, they contain 30% Aloe Vera which comes from the Aloe plant. The Aloe plant takes around 8 to 10 months to grow before it can be harvested, during which time farmers cut the aloe leaves early in the morning. The Aloe leaves are the delivered to a factory as soon as possible, to be processed within 24 hours. During processing, the leaf surface is peeled to extract the pulp which is then washed clean and crushed to 3-4mm in its own juice. It takes about half a leaf to make one bottle of Say Aloe.
