The aloe plant has been used to treat various types of ailments for centuries. Studies confirmed the many health benefits of drinking the juice such as improving one's immune system and digestion. Drinking the juice can have as many healing qualities as the topical treatments. Aloe vera drinks are definitely a nice way to get refreshed and be healthy at the same time. I must warn you though because the plant contains a vegetable-like taste which will take time for you to get used to. A lot of people can't tolerate the taste and the smell but you can add sweeteners and fruits according to your choice to make the drink tastier.

One of my favorite aloe vera drinks that I like to prepare at home is the choco-banana aloe smoothie. For this recipe, you will need a glass of chocolate milk, 250ml skim milk or soya milk, 8 tablespoons aloe gel and 1 large banana. Just blend everything together and enjoy. If you're not a huge fan of chocolate and banana then you might want to try the strawberry honey aloe smoothie. You need to blend 1 pound of fresh strawberries, ½ juiced lemon, ½ cup ginger tea, 2 tablespoons honey and 8 tablespoons of the gel. This is a really good refreshment. Even the kids are going to like it.

If you're watching your weight, you can make the non-fat fruity aloe smoothie. For this recipe, you will need: ¼ cup sliced apple, ¼ cup banana, 1 juiced orange, 4 tablespoons honey and 8 tablespoons of the gel. Blend everything together and enjoy. Aloe vera drinks are great for improving your digestive system and your overall well-being. 

There are plenty of ways on how you can enjoy the best of this miraculous plant. Add any fruit or juice of your choice and crushed ice if you don't have a blender at home. When I'm too lazy to make a smoothie, I just add orange juice with the prepared gel and I take it 30 minutes before my meal to aid with my digestion.
