Almost everyone has slathered some aloe vera gel—which comes from the spiky-looking succulent plant—over a red, painful sunburn to get some relief. And people have been sipping on juice from the succulent’s inner leaf for years, and it’s been touted as a way to do everything from clear up blemishes to fight off inflammation. But aloe also comes in fermented form—and one registered dietitian is touting it as a latte add-on with some impressive digestion benefits.

Lisa Hayim, RD, the blogger behind The Well Necessities, likes to use a powdered version of the plant from New Chapter, which she says keeps her gut health in check because it’s fermented with the same strains of bacteria you’ll see in your favorite probiotics. “Aloe works to gently detox your body and aids in digestion,” she says.

Cozy Caffeine Free Chai Tea Latte 🍵 made with * fermented aloe vera*. During my caffeine free couple of weeks (see my last post), I sipped on this baby as a nightcap to soothe and relax ✨. I love CHAI, but it is made with black tea ( contains caffeine ) so I got super creative! The blend of all natural spices in a rich creamy coconut milk make for an easy homemade treat. The addition of fermented aloe 🌱 ( its a powder form) helps to aid digestion, and naturally detox. I used the @newchapterinc Fermented Aloe Booster Powder, which is a blend of fermented aloe, peppermint, coriandor, artichoke, cardamom, and turmeric . how to make: in a sauce pan, combine: 2 cups coconut milk (1 can) 1 tsp cinnamon 1/2 tsp all spice (for more spice, add as you feel you need) 1/4 tsp Fermented Aloe Booster Powder 1 -2 drops of vanilla extract Blend in a blender to add some FROTH. sprinkle with a dash of cinnamon. watch me make it in my stories :) #newchaptervitamins #fermented #sponsored

When Hayim is ready to drink up, her latte mix is simple. After heating 2 cups of coconut milk, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon allspice, 1/4 teaspoon fermented aloe powder, and 1 to 2 drops of vanilla extract, she adds the steamy liquid into a blender, which makes it nice and frothy. After pouring it into a mug and sprinkling on some extra cinnamon, let the digestion-bettering magic begin.
