I don't know about you but at this point in the year, I am always ready for some change.  The slightly longer days, the tufts of green in the garden, the glimmer of hope in the air, all get me in the mood to shed something.  If there was ever a juice to give a little jump start to your internal spring cleaning, this would be the poster child.  I have talked about the antibacterial and detoxifying properties of aloe vera before with my pineapple detox juice.  The difference with this one is the addition of lime and backdrop of the sweet apples.  Both are delicious, healthful, natural ways to rehydrate.

Aloe does have a very strong and somewhat unpleasant taste so you will need to make sure your apples are in top form.  I'm a ginger lover and this juice is spicy...so you may want to tone that down a bit.  Overall, it's a refreshing, energizing taste of early spring in a glass.
