This Aloe Vera juice is super nourishing and completely free from additives, artificial color or complex sugar.
It is just a combination of water, honey, lemon, and Aloe Vera.
I make this yummy juice by crushing or blending the entire leaf of the aloe vera plant, It used to be very bitter and nobody loves to drink bitter stuff. With this new recipe, I found a way to reduce the bitterness without reducing the many known benefits of the aloe vera plant. 😀
Now, I squeeze out the colorless pulp/gel and blend with a couple of other naturally occurring ingredients and what I have is this sparkling Juice.
In my quest to make a perfect and delicious juice that is void of unhealthy additives I have learned that aloe vera mixes easily into smoothies and shakes, this I can’t say about several other wild herbs. This makes aloe vera juice a practical whole food supplement.
You can’t imagine all the things I have done with aloe vera and how much time I put into such experimentation. I have tried adding aloe vera to Chapman, orange juice and even certain store-bought wines; It turned out perfect.
I really don’t like the idea of having to consume a glass of juice laced with 7 cubes of sugar. And we started all this because we wanted to consume less or no sugar at all.

I wrote an article some days back about Detoxifying With Aloe Vera, I told you that I will be sharing my recipe for free. Well, this is how I make my own aloe vera drink.
If you want it really bitter, use lots of aloe vera.
I used Aloe vera, lemon, water and a spoon of honey.
Squeeze out the juice from the aloe vera, add one cup of chilled water, 100ml of lemon juice/orange juice, a tablespoon of honey and you are done. Try different measurement for aloe Vera and honey, you can use more or less aloe vera.
You can practically make a jug of family juice using this technique, just remember, it is best to serve juice after a meal and never before a meal.
