I saw this segment on The Chew a few months ago , and Daphne mentioned something about aloe vera. They all tried the drink and most didn't like it! I googled "The Chew aloe vera" and clicked on the first thing and theres a video to watch (I'm guessing of the segment; it wouldnt play for me because I'm out of the US) and this was written underneath it: Aloe Vera Juice: Your go-to sunburn relief is now relief for your stomach lining. Aloe Vera juice soothes digestive tract irritations such as colitis, ulcers and irritable bowel syndrome. Its ability to encourage the release of pepsin when the stomach is full is a possible reason for its ulcer-healing effects. I know that wasn't exactly what you were looking for, but it's the only thing I know about aloe! lol

When I was studying abroad a few years ago, I found these little things called Hi Chews that are kind of like Starbursts. They were aloe flavored and super tasty. And then at a whole foods/organic foods store I used live near, they had aloe water and other aloe products for sale.
It was all soooo good and I was thinking about getting a hold of an actual aloe plant or leaf to cook with every once in a while, but I don't really know what to do with it yet, so I haven't bought one. I hear actual aloe is bitter if you don't prepare it properly, so I was wondering if anybody has any recipes, whether smoothies, desserts, salads, whatever, with aloe that they could tell me about, and maybe techniques you use to get the job done.
I don't expect it to taste as sweet or exactly like store bought goodies with aloe in them, but I think a hint of the flavor would be awesome. Anybody got anything?
