Aloe Vera Cucumber Cooler

Aloe Vera Cucumber Cooler

3 tbsp Aloe Vera Gel or Juice  
Juice of one Lemon
Sliced Lemon
Sliced Cucumber 
32oz Filtered Water or Sparkling Water 
1 tbsp Maple Syrup (optional) 

Mix Aloe Vera and Maple Syrup (optional) with Water then add the Juice of one Lemon, Lemon Slices and Cucumber slices to the Water.  Chill in the fridge for 30 minutes before serving! 

I keep this on hand in my fridge for a delicious flavored water when I don't want to drink just plain old water!  It's very refreshing and cooling on a hot day! 

Drinking aloe vera juice is a very healthy habit, as it can aid in weight loss, digestion, and immune function. Aloe vera gel is a superfood packed full of vitamins and minerals. It contains B complex vitamins B1, B2, B6 and B12 as well as vitamins A, C and E. It is a good plant source of folic acids too.  Aloe vera aids in digestive health by balancing stomach acids, thereby helping your body to absorb the nutrients you consume. It also has laxative qualities, so if you ever have trouble with constipation, drinking a little juice from the aloe plant will help to get things moving again.
