How to Make Aloe Vera Juice

The monster of aloe vera plants.

If there was ever an aloe vera plant to engorge and swallow up a living room, this would be it. My mother raised this plant in her home from an infant, and you can see in the photo what it has become. That’s a 50 pound bag of potting soil that you can see in the background (gives you an idea of just how big this monster is).

Aloe vera is an incredibly nutrient-rich plant. Many of you know that aloe vera gel is great to use on burns, but did you also know that it can be ingested internally? Aloe Vera gel is anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal and has some amazing healing properties.

Aloe Vera gel chunks transform a beverage into something positively scrumptious and refreshing. If you have your own aloe vera plant, here’s how you can make your own aloe vera juice drink.

Pomegranate Aloe Vera Juice

Step One: Cut a large healthy aloe vera leaf off of your plant, then let the resin drip out by holding it upside down so that it drains where you cut it. The gel won’t come out, so don’t worry about that.

Step Two: Cut it in half and then filet the gel out of the inside. Just be sure you don’t get the yellow stuff that comes out near the outer skin. You could also do this by first cutting the top layer, then the sides and eventually the bottom. There’s a photo tutorial on this here that shows how to do this really well.

Step Three: Place in a blender and cover with 3 cups of fruit juice or fresh fruit and water. You can pretty much use anything you want here. Try coconut milk or almond milk if that suits your taste better.

Step Four: Blend well, chill and then serve. Refrigerate leftover juice.

Aloe vera plants can get quite big if they are healthy and not over watered, as you can see from the above photo.

If you aren’t into making your own, you can buy aloe vera juice drinks. But, aloe vera in it’s raw state will have the most beneficial health properties. Do you have any experience making your own aloe vera juice and have a tip or recipe to share? You can leave a comment by clicking here.

  1. My daughter has been drinking it and it’s helping her Colitis.

  2. And here I am just thinking I can use my aloe plant for burns! I have colitis as well, so I am definitely going to try this.

  3. after seeing this I happened to be wandering through Wegmans (not a good thrifty idea) and came upon a jar of organic aloe vera tea! I got some and it’s pretty tasty. It’s kind of like a gel that you add to either hot or cold water.

  4. Whenever I have the time, I incorporate fresh aloe into my juices always makes my toilet visits more pleasant LOL

  5. You can also blend Aloe with Tamarind Fruit for a delicious drink with additional health boosting properties. Tamarind has a flavor like fruit roll ups for those of you unfamiliar with it.
    I have also tried it with nectarines and lemon juice, and it was yummy. It makes great lemonade slushies!

  6. What does pure Aloe Vera extract tastes like? That is what my niece is asking me about. We tried and my niece got a face that made us laugh. I think it is much preferable to make it a juice not eat it raw. :)

  7. This is great! My vet recommended it several years ago for my horse for his ulcer. It’s been working great and he hasn’t had any more issues. I haven’t tried drinking it myself yet but I will!

    • Upon knowing benefits acquired from aleo vera juice I went to the health shop, bought for myself a litre of pure aleo vera .I suffer from indigestion and high cholesterol. So, I hope this helps.I also started growing aleo vera and hope in future I can make my own juice.

  8. I tried juicing a couple of my aloe leaves a couple of weeks ago. It was very thick and slimey so I added a couple plums to the juicer. It wasn’t too bad, but I think I’ll try your way next time. :)

  9. and an advice to all of you … the properties of aloe are very dificult to preserve, they tend to vanish hours after it was cut. So get some and grow at home, waaaaaay better that processed somewhere else, day, weeks or months before, no special need for anything. Just some water from time to time and sunlight. Amazingly, Aloe will keep growing if you leave it hanging outside the ground, just the roots exposed to the air.

  10. i have many of this plants and i have tried many ways of making Juice and Jam
    i’ve mixed aloe vera with orange slice and it was very good i’ve mixed aloe vera with beer ‘ non alcohol beer and also i,ve made Jam .
    i just boiled aloe vera in sugar for 1 hours i think or more it was good..
    after all aloe vera is called “The Queen of plants ”

    and be careful to not use green part of aloe vera or u get Diarrhea :D

  11. if we store aloeverajuice what we mixed it.for long time like for one month

  12. How much water should I put in blender to make my aloe juice? Also id like to add lemon juice, how much should I add to that?

  13. Don’t juice the whole cut of aloe! The skin is toxic and will make you sick. The yellow sap is what tastes bad anyway. Skin it first and rinse it with cool water. Doesn’t go through juicer well, you lose the aloe. Juice your produce first then add the clear skinned aloe gel and shake or throw it in the blender to mix. It will eventually mix in.

  14. Hi ya Crystal

    Thanks so much for sharing. I have loads of these plant i just love them and i wanted to create a juice and found your article. I will be following your instructions and i will probably document it on my youtube channel.

    Blessings Janet [please use this comment as the one before i mis-typed my url thanks]

  15. One of my fb friends posted he’s been using saline and aloe vera juice as a nasal spray and his sinuses have never been better. I, as a chronic sinus sufferer, decided to take his advice but first I searched how to make your own aloe juice since I have two over grown plants I don’t want to get rid of. After reading here, I will try the saline (once I buy a new bottle, mine’s expired) spray w/ aloe and start adding it to my drink. I have high cholesterol have occasional intestinal issues. It’ll be a while but I’ll try to get back to you.
