Drink your aloe vera—without it being disgusting. While you have probably decided to try aloe vera juicing to aid your digestive track, don’t disregard your taste buds. They matter too! Here are a bunch of my favorite recipes for drinking aloe while keeping your mouth smiling.
The Drink Book: Aloe Juice Recipes
Walk right by the juice aisle in your local supermarket. You don’t need to pick up a pre-packaged, processed aloe vera juice. There are so many aaloe juice recipes out there. Here is how to make a few of them.
Mix and Match Ingredients
Depending on your food preferences, desires or what you already have in the house, you can create a unique aloe vera juice that makes your stomach and taste buds happy and healthy. While you can experiment on your own, here are some creative recipes that have already been tested and are a proven success!
Keep in Mind: When you are using a lot of ingredients in you aloe juice, you will want to include ones that will not only boost your mixture’s health potential but also make it tastier. Since aloe can give your taste buds quite the rude awakening, you might find yourself in search of an ingredient that cuts that strong taste. So, out of all the yummy goodies you throw into your blender with the aloe gel, make sure you include at least one acidic fruit. Lemons, limes, grapefruit, pineapple, oranges–those are your answers, right there. The bitter taste of acidic foods will knock out any unpleasant aloe flavor in your juice.
Without further ado, I introduce to you some of the best aloe juice recipes. But the best way to know for sure whether these juice recipes are keepers is to try them for yourself.
Recipe 1 – Keep it Light and Crisp
To keep it light, try blending, chilling, drinking, and making seconds of this concoction:
- 2 tablespoons of aloe vera gel (extracted from the leaf or purchased from a health food store)
- 1 apple
- 1 cucumber
- 1 lemon
Recipe 2 – Tropical Escape with Aloe
You will surely experience an air of relaxation with this health-boosting exotic concoction. Blend, chill, and enjoy:
- 1 tablespoon of aloe vera gel (extracted from the leaf or purchased from a health food store)
- 1 carrot
- 1 apple (preferably green)
- 1-2 cups of pineapple
- Optional: a few tablespoons of coconut milk (health perk: coconut milk will increase your juice’s bacteria-fighting potential)
Cool Fact: As you are tossing odds and ends into your blender, just remember: as you change the fruit, you’ll change the color. Because aloe vera gel is a clear substance, whatever you toss alongside it will determine what color your beverage becomes. Create a standard green aloe vera juice, or turn it up a notch with a red, yellow or even orange tint.
Add or alter the above recipes however you please! Remember to stick leftovers in the refrigerator so you can blend in bulk and have a large enough supply for the whole week (after which, you’ll want to ditch that juice)!

v. important service of humanity.
I was shocked after tasting a concoction with one inner leaf of aloe a whole pineapple and a cup of strawberries. After reading this article we added 2 limes and lemons, 3 carrots, 1plum,3 peaches,a cantelope,a cup of watermelon ,cup of orange juice,and a cup of cherry juice and it slightly tasted better. I’m sure it is good for you despite the taste.
Oh yeah we added a beet and 4 more carrot; it’s tangible even at room temperature. Good luck.

we love aloe Too.
Like others in the comments have suggested, have you tried mixing the aloe with honey? I’ve read that using the pulp of the whole leaf is even better than just the juice. And there is some new research coming out about Aloe Arborescens and how its healing properties might be even more potent than that of Aloe Vera. I found some good info at aloearborescens.org Have you researched this other aloe species at all?
can i add aloe vera gel in my breakfast lunch dinner … as i found this very helpful in removing toxins from body n making it healthy n helps in increasing immunity n glowing skin too … so far i didn’t found any side effects of aloe vera. but quantity should be low always, as more of something is always desastrious.
