Rochelle’s Raw Food Recipes for Delicious Aloe Vera Juice and Smoothies
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I LOVE ALOE VERA. In the next post I will tell you more about the incredible, and I mean incredible health benefits associated with this plant.
Right now I’m going to give you some simple Aloe Vera Recipes that you can make for yourself in less than 5 mins flat. You may be wondering why I’m sharing all this information for free, the answer is simple. I LOVE ALOE VERA! lol. My goal is to motivate you on your journey to health and wellness.
Aloe on its own is horribly bitter, but if you try my recipes, you’ll reap all the benefits and you won’t even taste it one bit. The beauty of raw recipes or uncooking as some people call it, is that there is no exact science. If it tastes good, it is good, so you eat it, and you feel good. Simple. Ok let’s go!

A piece of the aloe gel directly from the plant.
Throw everything in the blender and enjoy!! Delightfully refreshing.
