In my family's kitchen we've always had an aloe vera plant. It comes in handy for the occasional (or not so occasional) burn. The clear, soothing gel works like magic. Just break off a stem, rub it on your burn, and voilà.
But, I've never thought of ingesting aloe vera. Though I've seen it just about everywhere, the gloopy texture has not, until yet, compelled me to purchase a bottle of the strange juice. YumSugar, however, has a recipe that just might inspire me to try it. Added to a strawberry and banana smoothie, the aloe vera does not impart any flavor, according to our friends, instead, it leaves you feeling extra refreshed. That works for me!
