If you are interested in boosting your immune system, losing weight, and simply living a healthier lifestyle, drinking aloe vera juice is a great way to do exactly that.
While you can buy aloe vera juice, the best way to get fresh aloe vera juice is right from the leaves. Not only will it improve your digestion, help to detoxify your body, and improve your resistance to bacterial and viral infections, it will boost your energy and clear your mind.
Here is a recipe for aloe vera juice with blueberries:
Wash the aloe vera leaves
The first step is to thoroughly wash your aloe vera leaves to make sure any contaminants are removed.
Let the leaf dry
Blot the leave with a dry cloth or some paper towels until it is completely dry. You do not want any excess water on the leave, as this could make it slippery and difficult to handle.
Use kitchen scissors to cut off one of the thorny edges. Using a sharp pair of scissors, carefully cut off one of the edges to remove the thorny part and to make the leaf easy to open.
Cut off the top
Cut off the top of the rind. Using your scissors or a sharp knife, carefully cut off the top of the rind. Inside is where you will find the gel. You can carefully scoop it out of the leaf with a spoon.
Mix with water and blueberries
To create a very tasty juice, mix up to two teaspoons of aloe vera gel with water and add blueberries. If you want a smoother juice, blend the water, aloe vera gel, and blueberries in a belnder.
