Cookbook Countdown #9: NSCRHR: Aloe Vera and Kalamasi Quencher

Welcome to Cookbook Countdown
 I'm co-hosting Cookbook Countdown together with Joyce of Kitchen Flavours. If you are like us, who love to collect cookbooks and have an overcrowding bookshelf (or bookshelves!), yet most of the books have not been used at all, now is the time to change that. Join us at Cookbook Countdown
For September 2016

See more books by Terry Tan HERE
Aloe Vera and Kalamansi Quencher - page 15
finely diced fresh aloe flesh,

my attention!)

and Terry say that you can make your own fabulous face pack
for a real smooth complexion - 1 tbsp aloe gel with 2 tbsp fresh yogurt,
mix well, apply and leave on for 15 mins before rinsing!
alas, I ran out of aloe gel!

We have aloe Vera growing in our backyard on Phoenix Az. This looks like a delicious and refreshing drink.

Occasionally I will make some aloe vera sweet soup dessert. This glass of aloe vera drink with squeezed kalamansi taste so refreshing!
