Let’s talk aloe vera…💚
You may know of aloe vera for soothing dry skin and for helping with relief from unwanted sun burns.
But there's more!
Aloe can not only reduce acidity in your body, help balance your metabolism, but also assists in healthy digestion.
I didn’t realize that it was possible to buy whole aloe vera leaves at Whole Foods Market until my friend Marie tossed fresh aloe into a smoothie for me at her house. THANKS Marie Dyer...
As I love using whole foods whenever possible, I started buying aloe vera and using it in my smoothies! You can simply split the leaves open with your hands or use a knife to cut the desired amount.
Start with a small piece about 2 oz. It’s best to start with a small amount and add more to taste since too much aloe vera can overpower your smoothie flavor.
What do you say, want to get your digestion back in flow and make that skin glow?
I love creamy smoothies so if you’d like to add a little water to cut the thickness please do.
