SUMMER COOLERS WITH ALOE VERA RECIPE
About 6 drinks:
Strawberry-Watermelon Juice with Aloe Vera
by Sifu Renka
1 aloe leaf
sugar to taste
½ lb strawberries
½ watermelon without seeds & cut into chunks
Split the leaf in half as above and extract the gel. Sweeten with sugar and refrigerate.
Put fruit, such as strawberries and watermelon, into a blender. Cover with water. Blend well, about 2 minutes. (Sugar can be added but the more sugar the thirstier and the more that will have to be made.)
Refrigerate letting it settle at least 2 hours.
Pour into glasses.
Variations: aloe vera with ice tea; with orange juice, with pomegranate juice.
Aloe vera has been recommended for detoxification of the liver, to reduce the stress on it by the removal of waste which in turn is thought to alleviate outbreaks of psoriasis and eczema in many cases and helps to produce younger skin. A doctor should be consulted if one plans to drink a lot on a steady basis as it can have adverse effects for a few.
