Pink Morning Detox

IMG_0517

Hello friends, here is something I’ve been drinking for the past couple of days to cleanse. It is an altered version of David Wolfe’s “Twinkling Pink Aloe Cleanser”, here are the ingredients I’ve used:

1/2 Grapefruit (peeled)

Inside gel from an Aloe Vera leaf (not skin)*, I’ve used about 2-4 tablespoons

1/4 cup spring water

2-3 tbsps sweetener, I’ve used Maple Syrup and Honey

Blend all the ingredients together in a blender and enjoy!

* I am able to buy Aloe Vera leaves at my local supermarket, here’s what they look like:

What you can do is buy one or two of these leaves, skin them, and chop the gel into 2-3 inch wide slivers. You can then wrap these slivers in plastic wrap and keep them in the freezer. This way, you can have fresh Aloe Vera whenever you need it! If you can’t find them at your local supermarket, try a Latino market, where it goes by the same name.
