There’s nothing like a chilled slice of watermelon to cool you off. But, hey, sticky fingers aren’t always fun. This juice combines a summertime classic with aloe for a refreshing beverage after some serious outdoor activity (or just to chill out).

Aloe is known as a natural skin solution, but it’s also packed with nutritional benefits as a drink. These nutrients include vitamins A, C, E, and B12, as well as minerals like potassium, zinc, and magnesium. It’s a great option for recovery from a workout or any strenuous activity. So drink up and toast to your health!
