How to Make Aloe Vera Juice

Aloe Vera juice is said to be beneficial in detoxifying your body and your blood stream. It may be helpful in aiding those with stomach problems such as ulcers or irritable bowel syndrome. Making Aloe Vera juice at home can be ineffective if done improperly. But by following this helpful guide, you can learn how to make Aloe Vera juice safely at home and reap its healthy benefits.

1 - Break off a few leaves from an Aloe Barbadensis Miller plant.

2 - Take a sharp knife and carefully peel the rind from the plant leaves and discard.

3 - Peel the yellow layer just beneath the rind with a sharp knife and discard.

• The yellow layer can also be removed by gently rinsing it in a solution of 1 tbsp. (15ml) of white vinegar and 1 cup (8oz) water.

• Once all the rind and yellow layers have been removed, you should be left with only clear Aloe Vera gel.
4 - Continue peeling the outer rind and removing the yellow layer of each leaf until you have approximately 2 tbsp. (30ml) of clear Aloe Vera gel
5 - Place the 2 tbsp (30ml) of clear Aloe Vera gel into a blender immediately.

6 - Add 1 cup (8oz) of any citrus-based juice, such as orange or grapefruit, to the blender

7 - Blend the juice and gel until it has a smooth appearance.8 - Pour the blended juice into a glass and enjoy!

   Tips

    The Aloe Barbadensis Miller plant is the only Aloe Vera plant that contains the proper gel for making Aloe Vera juice.
    Aloe Vera juice also contains the same antibacterial benefits that Aloe Vera gel is known to provide.
    Aloe Vera juice can be taken twice a day for optimal health benefits. You can extract enough gel from your plants to make 2 servings. Just be sure you add the gel to 1 cup (8oz) of citrus juice immediately and refrigerate until you’re ready to drink it.
    Taken daily, Aloe Vera juice can help provide a greater sense of well-being, increased energy and a healthy body weight.
    Making your own homemade Aloe Vera juice can ensure there are no unhealthy additives or preservatives, especially if you’re using an Aloe Barbadensis Miller plant that you’ve grown yourself.

   Warnings

    Be sure to use the Aloe Vera gel immediately after extracting it from the leaves. It will oxidize after only a few minutes and begin to lose some of its valuable nutrients.
    It is important to remove all of the yellow layer beneath the rind of the Aloe Vera plant. If this layer is ingested, it can cause stomach discomfort and diarrhea.
