For today I tried something a little unusual: an Aloe Vera Green Smoothie because I found a video by Anthony Anderson where he made a similar smoothie however I changed some of the ingredients in order to make it suitable to what I currently have at home.
What you need
- 1-2 aloe vera leave (filleted so carefully take the skin off so that you only include the flesh in the smoothie). I used some from the plant I have in my garden
- 1 small handfull of sunflower seeds
- 1 handful of raspberries
- 1 handful of mangos
- about a glass of filtered water (slowly add this until you get the consistency that you like)
I also did some research online to find out what some people believe the health benefits are of consuming aloe vera. Apparently it is so rich in vitamins, minerals and enzymes that it can help with cancer, cholesterol, inflammation, kidney stones, stabilising the sugar levels, candida, aids recovery and is great for the skin and hair. Pretty much a superfood! So if you have a aloe vera plant or know of someone that has one try out this recipe! I loved it very much and will be making it again for sure.
