Aloe Vera With Red Dates Drink

Aloe Vera with Red Dates Drink
 My kids love this drink. You can call it herbal drink or even Tong Sui
but at the end, it is just one delicious drink. 
I bought this Aloe Vera from an Organic Shop and cost me only
RM2.80 which is cheap to me since I don't have this plant.
To chinese, this drink is "Yun" to our body (boosts immune system).
My kids said that this drink taste exactly the same  from the famous shop
that we bought.  With the crazy weather nowadays, do boil it for your family.
It is cheap to boil by our self and even great to know that we can have
more of the Aloe Vera compare to store bought.
1 pc of Aloe Vera
6 pcs of Red Dates (wash and seeded)
 My sister in law taught me the easiest method to handle the Aloe Vera.
DO NOT PEEL it cause it is very slimy and difficult to handle.
Cut around 4 to 6 inches in length and slice into half.
You will noticed the orange slimy dripping out....no worry,
just need to soak all of it into water for 10 minutes.
 After soaking for 10 minutes, rinse it well and drip all the water.
 Use sharp edge of  the soup ladle to scoop out the Aloe Vera.
See....so easy.
 Cut the Aloe Vera into desired sizes.
 Boil 1.5 liter of water with red dates for 45 minutes with medium fire.
Towards 30 minutes, add in the sugar cane rock sugar.
 After 45 minutes, add in the Aloe Vera and cook for 5 minutes only
and then switch off the fire.
You can drink it cold or warm.
I prefer warm and my kids prefer cold.

This is such a refreshing dessert! I love eating aloe vera though have never tried making them into desserts myself.
It would be great if you could provide the source of recipe, from which cookbook that you used, as Cook-Your-Books is all about baking or cooking from cookbooks and magazines. Thanks for linking!
Oop! I have made a blunder? Thousand apologies. Won't don't it again.
