I just love aloe vera. What an awesome plant. It can heal your wounds and sunburns, tastes wonderful, and is used for many other medicinal purposes. Now, let’s cook…well, mix it up!
“The lower leaf of the [aloe vera] plant is used for medicinal purpose. If the lower leaf is sliced open, the gel obtained can be applied on the affected area of the skin. Leaves and seeds are the two edible parts of Aloe Vera” (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aloe_vera, 2007).
Looking for another “festive” tropical-type alcoholic beverage to replace the usual margarita? I’ve got it just for you! I created it tonight, and it is my new favorite thing!
