Ideal for a cleansing start to the day.
To prepare the fresh aloe vera gel, cut off a segment a few centimetres wide, discarding the base of the leaf and the tip. Cut off the thin jagged edges. Then ‘fillet’. Lay it, flat side facing down on the surface, and run a knife along the inside of the outer green skin to remove it. Flip it over and run the knife along the inside of the outer rind, and your gel is ready to go.
