Alo’s drinks use Aloe Vera straight from the leaf rather than using dehydrated powders as these Aloe pieces contain the most important benefits and give the drinks that extra bit of flavour.
I thoroughly enjoyed all flavours of Alo Drinks. The only one I wasn’t a massive fan of was the Awaken as the Wheatgrass flavour wasn’t very sweet. The others were gorgeous though and my particular favourite was Enrich (Aloe Vera, Pomegranate and Cranberry) as I love any berry flavours. I wasn’t sure I was going to like the bits at first as I tend to buy pulp free juices but after a couple of bottles I think they were my favourite bit. They absorb all the sweet juices from the drink and were really enjoyable to eat/drink on their own.
Alo have recently launched their drinks in Waitrose and various Health Stores such as Holland and Barratt. They retail at around £1.99 each, they’re also available to buy online at www.alodrinks.co.uk.
