Homemade is the best way to ensure that you know exactly what you are eating or drinking. If you are looking to detoxify, hydrate and stimulate digestion then making this juice is the answer.  Aloe vera juice works with your body’s immune system and protects your heart by boosting circulation which prevents blood clotting and reduces the amount of cholesterol in the blood.

The hardest part of this recipe is extracting the aloe vera gel from the spear.  There are several methods.  One of the easiest is to begin by cutting off the thorns of the spear with scissors.  As the thorns are cut off that part of the spear opens.  Once all the thorns are off use a sharp knife to slide under that side of the spear and cut, opening length wise.  Open the spear completely and carefully scoop out the gel, being sure to only scoop out clear gel from the center of the spear.  The smell of aloe vera is described as potent by some, but the taste is mild.
