  • Anyone eat or juice Aloe Vera straight off the plant?

    Got a fair few aloe plants growing around home. Keen to put them to good use if they are edible/juiceable.

    First make sure the variety you've got on your hands is edible- I'm not sure they all are. I like to filet a big chunk- slice off all the green- then throw it in a blender with your normal smoothie/shake fare. It tends to be just a tad bitter. Supposed to be excellent for digestion and high in sulphur!

      i've read there's a substance in aloe vera which causes loose bowels, so you might want to experiment cautiously. it's supposed to be really healing for stomach ulcers.

        I believe the strong laxative is a sappy substance in the green skin, and the gel can act as a very mild laxative. Do be careful though!

          Can I just blend it straight with water?
