Aloe Cooler: 3 Ways + How To Prep the Aloe – No Bitterness

Aloe Cooler: 3 Ways + How To Prep the Aloe – No Bitterness

I am so excited to share a nifty trick I developed recently for removing the bitterness from aloe gel so that you can enjoy it in some fun summer recipes. Just because many of us are spending a lot of time at home these days doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy the summer. I hope that you find ways to get into the carefree and relaxing spirit of summer so that you can decompress and just enjoy the season. The recipes I am sharing today should help you do just that – and the side benefit is the ingredients restore and sustain your health! 

It is important to be seeking ways to bring more peace and calm into your daily routine. Stress is ever-present, and we all know how toxic adrenaline can be to our bodies. My wish for you is that you find simple ways every day to slow down and just allow yourself to be in the moment. This can just be a matter of turning your focus inward to your own wellness. Give yourself the tender loving care you deserve. The simple act of treating yourself with compassion will enhance your healing in ways you probably haven’t imagined.

One way I treat myself with compassion is by finding moments to treat myself to a little peace and quiet, and some time to enjoy a refreshing and healing drink. 

 

Why Aloe?

We know that applying aloe on our skin can provide soothing benefits. But did you know that aloe has the same cooling and healing effects when taken internally?

 

Aloe’s Healing Benefits

  • purifies the blood
  • reduces inflammation
  • eases arthritis pain
  • prevents kidney stones
  • lowers high cholesterol
  • prevents Candida
  • boosts physical endurance
  • benefits cardiovascular health
  • protects the body from oxidative stress
  • soothes ulcers, hemorrhoids, gastritis, diverticulitis, colitis, irritable bowel syndrome, and other digestive disorders
  • provides recovery from fatigue 
  • aids in muscle function 
  • assists in optimal utilization of several vitamins, minerals, and enzymes
  • helps soothe acidosis and alkalinize the whole body

 

As promised, here is how to prep your aloe to remove the bitterness:

 

Bitterness-Free Aloe Prep

Step 1: Cut the wide end off the bottom of the aloe leaf and set the cut end into a bowl of filtered water.

Step 2: Allow aloe to sit in the bowl for 5 minutes.

Step 3: Slice off the thorny sides. Change out the water and place aloe leaf back in water for five more minutes.

Step 4: Fillet out the green outer leaf to expose the gel. Change out the water and add a little maple syrup to it. Place the gel in the maple syrup water and allow it to sit for five more minutes.

Step 5: Your bitterness-free aloe gel is ready to be used as you wish.

 

Now that you have your aloe prepped, here are some mouthwatering ways to use it to cool down.

  1. How do you store the remaining aloe you don’t use. Do you keep in fridge or freezer? If in freezer do you cut in small pieces first? Or blend in blender and then put in ice cube trays? Can you do a few leaves at a time and then store for a while?

        Hi Muneeza,
        Do you think this kind of beverage can help with healing cavities? Aloe being effective with the gut.
        I just found a new cavity today on my daughter, who is almost 3, has many cavities already even though we try to follow the medical medium protocol with remineralisation. Maybe teeth take a while to heal?
        Thank you for your kindness

    These beverages sound delicious. Thank you for sharing these and for the valuable information. ❤️

  3. Ich liebe und geniesse täglich frischen Aloe-Gel in meinem Wassermelonensmoothie mit frischer Minze aus meinem Garten.
    Aloe-Gel ist wunderbar kühlend und beruhigend in der heissen Sommerszeit.

    1. now in english 🙂
      I love and enjoy fresh aloe gel in my watermelon smoothie with fresh mint from my garden every day. Aloe gel is wonderfully cooling and calming in the hot summer time.
