Homemade Aloe Water

Aloe water is everywhere it seems. But most of the bottled versions are too sweet for my taste. Try this easy recipe to make it yourself. Aloe is a gooey viscous substance, which is why we mix it with coconut water. Try adding a few tablespoons to your morning smoothie for health benefits for your skin, liver, digestive tract and more.

Homemade Aloe Water
Makes 1 cup

1 aloe vera leaf
1 cup coconut water

Slice the aloe leaf in half lengthwise and scoop out the clear gel with a spoon.

In a blender combine 2 tablespoons of the clear aloe gel with a cup of coconut water.  Double or triple the recipe as desired. Blend until smooth. Transfer to a covered jar and keep refrigerated.
