Homemade Aloe Vera Juice

I am brand new to aloe vera juice and have found it very beneficial. For best results it must be taken everyday. To avoid on going costs I have juiced up 2 large leaves from my pot. I juiced the whole leaf along with water and lemon juice. It tastes terrible, other than causing diarrhea, what are the risks of eating the outside of the leaf as well as the gel?

If the aloe plant you have is the soft semi-succulent you use it on burns, etc. Don't eat it. The large thick leaved kind with stickers on the leaves are edible, but only the opaque center under the green of the leaves.

There is one that has a round leaf with stickers or thorn type on the leaves, but the thorn is really short, all of this is very bitter and will produce stomach problems.

Freezing is good with the right plant. You can grow them in pots and pot off the babies or if you are in zone 8 they thrive in sandy areas really well with some mulch. (02/27/2009)
