For our month-long NO Spending Spree in the middle of the Summer, I knew we were going to be facing some stifling hot days. So refreshing cold lemonade was definitely something I wanted on our menu for the month. I previously wrote about how to make aloe vera juice. Be sure to check out that article before you start making your aloe vera lemonade.
For this lemonade recipe, I decided to add in some aloe vera for an added immunity booster. This is very simple to make and takes approximately 5-10 minutes when you calculate the time to cut the aloe vera stalk.
Aloe Vera Lemonade Recipe
- 1 Big Healthy Aloe Vera Stalk
- 4 Cups of Water
- 3/4 Cup of Lemon Juice
- 1/2 Cup of Turbinado (Organic Raw Cane Sugar)
- Filet and cut out the gel from your Aloe Vera stalk.
- Add to a blender with the rest of your ingredients.
- Blend until the sugar is completely dissolved.
- Chill and then serve.
This makes approximately 1 quart of lemonade. I use Real Lemon lemon juice for my lemonade, because it is easier and a lot cheaper than buying and squeezing fresh lemons. If you have a Costco membership, you can get 2-48 ounce bottles of Real Lemon for just $4.99 and have fresh lemonade for the Summer always at your fingertips.
We had family over this past weekend, and the lemonade was a hit! And no one was wise to the fact that aloe vera was an ingredient, because you can’t even taste it.
