You are probably familiar with the health benefits of aloe vera, and you may also be pretty well aware of the fact that it has many uses. Still, chances are, this is the first time you’ve heard of an aloe vera smoothie. And if that’s the case with you, you’ve come to the right place for your favorite aloe vera smoothie recipe.
Whether you’ve been using AMP Floracel’s Aloe Vera Supplement Powder or any other aloe vera product, you’ll probably love this recipe, which you may make the way you like, tailored to your taste and preferences.
Aloe Vera Smoothie
The idea of an aloe smoothie might seem odd initially, but it makes perfect sense if you look at it a bit closer. Smoothies are usually healthy drinks that speed up your metabolism and help digestion, as they are packed with essential nutrients.
Aloe vera, on the other hand, is one of the most undemanding plants that can be used for a wide range of things, from skin hydration to treating sunburns, and the list goes on. So, putting aloe vera in a smoothie would have even more benefits, right?
Well, there are several articles out there praising the internal uses of aloe vera. Yes, aloe vera is edible, but before starting with the aloe vera smoothie recipe, you’ll need to understand how to eat this marvelous plant.
Eating Aloe Vera
The first thing you need to know is there are different types of aloe vera, and not all are edible. Also, not every part of the plant can be eaten.
If we focus only on the leaf, we’ll see that it has three distinctive parts: the skin, gel, and latex. Well, if we are to eat aloe vera, we should only focus on the gel and the skin. These are perfectly safe for consumption, while the latex, or the yellow liquid between the gel and the skin, isn’t; it’s toxic.
So, to keep things simple, remove any traces of the yellowish liquid before you want to consume aloe vera leaves or gel.
Before jumping into the ins and outs of making an aloe smoothie, you should also know that the general consensus is that aloe vera simply has a bitter taste. Hence, some experts say that it’s actually the best to eat as a smoothie.
Putting Aloe Vera in A Smoothie: Benefits
The medicinal uses of aloe vera date back to ancient Egypt, and even now, researchers are finding new and new benefits from using this plant. On that note, you can also use the powdered form of aloe vera for the aloe smoothie recipe; you don’t need the fresh plant and bother with removing the latex.
However, let’s not get sidetracked, here are the possible benefits of drinking aloe vera smoothies:
- May help with constipation: Aloe vera is widely regarded as a natural laxative, relieving constipation and helping digestion.
- May lower blood sugar: Studies suggest that aloe vera may reduce blood sugar levels, possibly being able to help people with type two diabetes.
- May help with hydration: Regularly drinking aloe vera smoothies may also keep you hydrated.
- May promote clearer skin: It’s also widely regarded that aloe vera can improve the overall health of your skin and may also help with skin issues like psoriasis and acne.
Aloe Vera Smoothie Recipe: Ingredients
What to put in your aloe smoothie? If you ask us, we’d recommend the following ingredients:
This nutritional supplement is filled with minerals and vitamins, enriching our aloe smoothie with even more nutritional value. Additionally, it can also act as a natural sweetener. Beetroot powder usually contains glucose and fructose, which may help take away the bitter taste of the aloe vera and improve the taste of the aloe smoothie. Lastly, it’s a natural colorant, giving a nicer and more exciting color for our smoothie.
Strawberries and raspberries are high in antioxidants but low in sugar and calories. They are also high in vitamins and taste delicious, making them ideal fruit choices for our aloe smoothie.
A delightful way to stay hydrated, coconut juice offers both refreshments and a wealth of nutritional benefits. It possesses antioxidants and serves as a rich reservoir of essential nutrients like fiber, vitamin C, and various minerals.
Aloe Smoothie Instructions
- Wash the leaf of the plant under running water thoroughly.
- Then, grab a pair of scissors or a sharp knife and remove the thorny parts of the plant on either side.
- Now, remove one side of the outer leaf.
- If you opt for fresh aloe vera, let the yellowish latex drip down from the cut leaf into the sink. Leave it for approximately ten minutes.
- Now, with a spoon or a knife, scrape the gel, which should be white, without any hints of yellow. Use only this gel with your smoothie or edible powder. Avoid using skin care aloe gels, as they are meant to be used only on your skin.
- Mix the gel, frozen berries, coconut juice, and beetroot into a blender and blend the entire mixture for a minute or until you reach the preferred consistency.
- Serve and enjoy.
Aloe Smoothie Recipe: Additional Tips
- Use a more powerful blender to avoid lumps.
- Drink the smoothie immediately while cool and fresh.
- Frozen berries make the drink instantly creamy and cool, but you may also use ice cubes to cool the drink down out of the blender.
Also, we recommend using beetroot powder, as it acts as a natural sweetener along with the strawberries and raspberries. If you prefer, you may also use maple syrup or honey to sweeten up your smoothie and mask the bitter taste of the aloe vera.
Lastly, we recommend drinking the smoothie immediately after it’s prepared. Still, you may also store it in your fridge for a few days in an airtight container. You may also freeze it. Still, if you plan to make more of the smoothie, you may also want to add vitamins E and C to the mixture because they can increase the smoothie’s shelf life.
