Herbalife Nutrition Aloe is an unexpectedly delicious and decidedly nutritious addition to Herbalife Shakes. This Product Review will reveal three great recipes for using aloe in Herbalife Nutrition shakes. But the first thing to know is how aloe impacts hydration and nutrition.
Many homes keep an aloe plant close at hand for treating minor cuts, scrapes, and burns. The oozing sap of a freshly cut aloe leaf soothes, coats, and hydrates the skin to help it heal faster. Many skin moisturizers include aloe as one of their major ingredients. Applying aloe to the skin every night helps to keep it smooth, soft, and moisturized.
What many fans of Herbalife shakes don’t know is that aloe consumed orally hydrates the body from the inside out. Applying an aloe moisturizer to your skin every day or every night helps to keep your skin soft and smooth. Drinking Herbalife shakes made with aloe keeps skin smooth, too! And adding aloe to your Herbalife shakes makes them even more hydrating and more delicious.
To reap the benefits of Herbalife aloe, you only need to mix half a fluid ounce (3 capfuls) in half a cup (4 fluid ounces, or 120 ml if you use metric measurements) of water. Aloe also mixes deliciously with other drinks or a Formula 1 shake.

Black Pepper Citrus and Aloe Glazed Chicken
Make a marinade of:
- 2 tablespoons of soy sauce.
- 2 tablespoons of Herbalife Mandarin Orange Aloe
- 1 tablespoon of rice vinegar. (Rice vinegar is a sweeter vinegar. Apple cider vinegar will bring out sour flavors.)
- 3/4 teaspoon black pepper. You may want to use less if you are sensitive to pepperiness.
- 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder.
- 1/2 teaspoon ground dried ginger.
Stir the ingredients together. Place 8 to 10 boneless, skinless chicken tenders (about 1 pound to 1-1/4 pounds) in the marinade, making sure both sides are coated. Then cover the dish or marinating chicken tenders with plastic wrap and leave in the refrigerator to marinate for at least 4 hours to as long as overnight.
Remove the chicken tenders from the marinade, pat dry, and cook by your favorite method. Don’t throw the marinade away. Use it to deglaze the pan in which you cooked the chicken, and boil it until it thickens to the consistency of a glaze. Place the chicken tenders back into the pan to coat with the glaze and serve.
Cranberry Aloe Salad Dressing
Start by putting half a cup of unflavored non-fat Greek yogurt into a mixing bowl. Don’t use regular yogurt, because it will be too watery to make a creamy dressing. If you are vegan, you can leave the Greek yogurt out, but what you will get will be a vinaigrette.
Next, add two tablespoons of Herbalife Cranberry Aloe. To make the dressing even tangier, add a tablespoon of balsamic vinegar (apple cider vinegar will also work, but rice vinegar is too sweet), and two tablespoons of olive oil. Salad dressing without the added oil will tend to be watery.
Season with half a teaspoon of salt and a quarter of a teaspoon of black pepper. You can brighten the flavors with a fresh herb like tarragon, basil, oregano, or parsley.
Mix thoroughly and use immediately, or store in the refrigerator for up to a week.
Mango Coconut Lime Protein Pudding with Aloe
In a blender, start with a cup of water, or coconut water for a more intense coconut flavor. (Canned coconut milk is also flavorful, but adds a lot of calories.) Add three scoops of vanilla Herbalife Protein Drink Mix, and 1-1/2 cups of mango chunks. Previously frozen mango is fine. Next, add two tablespoons of freshly squeezed lime juice and two tablespoons of dried, unsweetened coconut. Finally, add two tablespoons of Herbalife Mango Aloe.
These ingredients won’t make a pudding. For that, you will need to add chia seeds, but mix the previously mentioned ingredients in a blender first. Then remove the beautifully orange mango and aloe mix and stir in four tablespoons of chia seeds. Don’t send the chia seeds through the blender.
Chia seeds are a great source of omega-3 essential fatty acids, and they absorb about 10 times their weight in water. As the mixture stands, it will thicken to pudding-like consistency after about four hours in the refrigerator.
Aloe helps other flavors permeate and stick to food. These low-calorie, low-fat recipes are packed with nutrition but easy on the budget and a snap to prepare.by
