4 cups (1 litre)

Honeydew and Aloe Vera Juice


  • 1 aloe vera leaf, about 1/2 lb (225 g)
  • 1 honeydew, peeled, seeded and cubed (see note)
  • 2 cups (500 ml) water
  • 1/4 cup (60 ml) lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp (30 ml) agave syrup


  1. On a work surface, cut off and discard the ends of the aloe vera leaf. With a knife, remove the leaf’s green skin and any yellow sap that seeps out and discard. You will need 1/2 cup (125 ml) of the transparent gel from the inside of the leaf.
  2. In a blender, in two batches, purée all the ingredients until smooth. Pass through a fine sieve (or line a sieve with cheesecloth), pressing down with the back of a ladle to extract as much juice as possible. Discard the fruit pulp. Skim the white froth from the surface of the juice.
  3. Serve over ice.


The honeydew can be replaced with cantaloupe for an equally refreshing juice.
