So we all know and love the healing properties and potency of aloe vera. If not, read here. So how do we get it down?
Children (not regular ones– the kind who have never known a chemical-laden candy bar or a Mickey-D’s milkshake) call this “Aloe Vera Shake.” One of said children will actually voluntarily eat the stuff straight. That said, I’ve never had anyone balk at this concoction:
“Aloe Vera Shake”:
1/2 cup Honey
3/4 cup Aloe Vera Juice
1/2 cup Lemon Juice
Combine in a 1/2 gallon jug or pitcher. Add water & mix well. You can adjust ratios to taste 🙂
Take it easy on the stuff to start out. If you find you’re cleaning out too quickly, just reduce your dosage until you’re comfortable. Your should be able to tolerate more as your body heals.
Alternatively, mix the aloe vera juice with some orange juice.
If you have an abundance of aloe vera plants, trim the green skin off the leaf, and toss a chunk of it into the blender w/ your OJ or honey, lemon, and water. Beautiful glyconutrient value augmented with the fresh gel!
