a healthy & refreshing drink…

Aloe vera is a common natural remedy for burns and skin irritation.

But did you know that you can also eat it?

Until I worked on this video for Tastemade, I had never heard of eating aloe. Several hours of research later, I’m convinced that aloe is indeed as good for your insides as it is for your skin, with claims of better digestion, lowering of inflammation, and healing ulcers. I can’t say with certainty that all the claims made about aloe vera juice are true, but I can tell you that this recipe is delicious.

I think you’ll agree that this limeade is a yummy way to experience aloe vera, and then you can see for yourself what all the fuss is about. Aloe is also a great addition to your morning (or afternoon) smoothie, fading into the background so that you won’t even know it’s there. Just don’t forget the step where you rinse the resin from the jelly. Trust me, it won’t taste as good (the resin has a strange, weird taste) and might also cause an unexpected dash to the bathroom. Yikes!
