A fabulously healthy juice drink from Australian chef flip shelton's 'green: modern vegetarian recipes'. Commenting on aloe vera, she says that it "has been described as a natural healer because it contains many essential amino acids, vitamins, minerals, proteins and enzymes" and she suggests giving youself "a dose whenever you feel low". From the instructions, this is clearly intended to be made using a juicer, but you could use a blender. You would then get the whole of the cucumber and apple, not just the juice. If doing this, obviously remove the apple core!
- Juice the cucumber and apple, stir in the lemon juice and aloe vera, and serve.
This is a wonderful juicer recipe. I loved it. My kids were put off by the green color, but they tried it at least. It was very healthy and so good for you. Made and Reviewed for 123 Hit Wonders Tag - Thanks! :)
Very tasty, tart and tangy healthy drink. I also made this in my blender and did not peel my apple. Made and reviewed for Potluck Tag. Thanks for posting!
Very nice and thick! I too used the blender, out of just not wanting to haul out the juicer from the cabinet. I didn't peel either, but only cored the apple. I figured I wouldn't have done so in the juicer anyway. I've been on a hunt for recipes that use aloe vera, and I'm glad I came upon this one! Very quick and easy to make, and the taste of the granny smith really masks the icky taste of aloe. Thanks for a recipe I'll definiteley be using again, bluemoon!
