Rose+Aloe+Pic.jpg

Aloe is not just a gel used to pacify sunburned skin in summertime. It’s a natural remedy (and wonder plant!) for all types of inflammation. It’s just as beneficial to take internally as applied topically. Aloe is cooling, hydrating, and soothing. While the taste of aloe ‘meat’ and juice is bitter, paired with cooling, sweet ingredients (like rose and honey), it becomes a perfect addition to a refreshing, summer mocktail. 


 

ingredients

  • 1 fresh aloe leaf (the “meat”)

  • 1 tbsp rose powder or ¼ cup rose water

  • Juice of 1 lime

  • 2 cups coconut water

  • 1 tbsp honey 

 

instructions

  1. Prepare aloe leaf (trim ends and edges of leaf, open leaf from base, scoop out ‘meat’)

  2. Place all ingredients in a blender and blend on high for 1 minute

  3. Taste beverage and adjust flavors as needed

  4. Pour over ice and add lime and rose petal garnish (optional)
