After 6 weeks of looking at it in the fridge and feeling my stomach turn, I thought I'd give this drink another try. It was the last thing I consumed before the onset of my most recent stomach episode, and so the thought of it entering my body again has just clean put me off. I'm feeling like a bit of a sweet treat tonight though, and lately seem to want my treats to be a drink, and so tonight, this is it.
So it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be. But I can tell you a few things. This drink is SUPER SWEET. Sweeter than fizzy drinks. And I will definitely be drinking it in doses over a course of time because it's super strong (go figure, that's 41% aloe vera written on the side of the bottle if you missed it). And it still makes my stomach turn a little bit.
Here's to conquering one's fears.

And on to the next treat. Because who am I kidding. That just didn't hit the spot.
