Once the leaves are taken out, the smooth green layer from the top is slowly peeled off with the help of a sharp knife. That is the starting of it.

Beneath the rind, is yet another layer yellow in color which needs to be removed as well. this may be a little hard to peel so a solution of 1 table spoon of vinegar and a cup of clear water can be put together in a solution and then the top layer needs a good rinse before the yellow peel comes off.

Now when you’re rid of the green and yellow outer covers, only the clean transparent gelatinous aloe-vera gel is remained with. This is what forms the base to out juice.

This can be continued with every other leaf until we reach a satisfied amount of clear aloe vera gel. Once this is ready, a mixer blender is brought and the gel contents are emptied inside. For the taste buds, a little creativity can be applied so ant citrus fruit such as orange, grapes or grapefruits are added onto the blender and the start button is pushed. If this is not desirable, a simple cup of water would suffice.

As the blender starts blending in the ingredients, the gel now mixed in with the fruit becomes a liquefied or thick paste consistency. Until the desired consistency arrives, the blender needs to go on and on.
