Typically, if you've ever had a terrible sunburn, you've used aloe vera.
I definitely fall under the category of people who've only used aloe vera to soothe cuts and sunburns, but if you're an adventurous drinker, you may have noticed that there are different kinds of bottled aloe vera drinks available in markets and stores. Aloe can be used as a cleanse and is rich in both vitamins and nutrients, so I suppose drinking and eating it ultimately makes sense. If you're curious, here's five foodie ways to enjoy aloe vera! Links to recipes are included!
1. Aloe lemonade
Made with stevia, lemon juice, and aloe juice, this is refreshing and simple to make at home. Definitely trying this during the summer.
2. Poached aloe vera
If you've seen aloe in the form of jelly cubes, that's essentially poached aloe. Adding a handful of poached aloe vera would be great for added texture in yogurt or some sort of a drink - substitute it for the tapioca balls in boba!
I'm a fan of "the more the merrier" when it comes to smoothies and juices. Both of these recipes sound delicious!
4. Cocktails: Pineapple-Aloe
Plus you can add the poached aloe for even more fun!
5. Aloe vera pickle
A sweet and strange pickled twist, for the adventurous.
