I will start with mine! My dear mother had made this wonderful Aloe Vera drink, that I am thrilled to share with you. I think it’s the best thing ever because it is so easy to make, and you can also use the Aloe Vera peel to create a soothing mask for your face while you enjoy this tasty and refreshing blend. It’s just a treat to be able to utilize Aloe Vera to the fullest; you can eat aloe and use the underside of the aloe.
The reason why I think this drink is amazing is because Aloe Vera naturally contains Vitamin B12; it has anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral properties. It nourishes your skin; it is beneficial for all skin types, including sensitive skin. It is both conditioning and healing properties.

What you will need to make this drink:
• 1-2 leaves of Aloe Vera plant
• A blender
• 100% pure honey
• Half a cup of water
• A cup of ice
First you need to peel the Aloe Vera leaves (save the peels for later use). After peeling, cut them into pieces then put them in the blender. Pour about 2tbs of honey into the blender, half a cup of water, and a cup of ice into the blender. Blend them in all together until all the ingredients are nicely blended together. Pour out into your cups, and to dress it up a bit you can cut a slice of lime or orange to put into your cup.
As for the Aloe Vera peels, use the slimy side of the peel to rub them onto your face. In a circular motion, massage your face with the Aloe Vera extract. Lounge down into your favorite place and relax with a cup of the Aloe Vera drink to enjoy!
