Acid reflux has sadly become commonplace amongst those eating the SAD (standard American diet). Changing up what you eat is a huge step in putting out those throat-searing flames. Juicing for acid reflux is a great place to start! This juice recipe below combines the soothing, restorative properties of fresh aloe leaves, honeydew melon, and cucumber. Try it today and see how it can help!
The Juice: Aloe For The Inferno
Makes 32 fl oz
6 c Honeydew Melon
1/2 c Aloe
Chop the honeydew (peel and deseed, if desired).
Remove the outer skin of the aloe leaf.
Peel the cucumber only if waxed; chop.
Run the ingredients through your juicer and enjoy!!!
Juicer Test Kitchen Insider Tip: Many store-bought cucumbers have wax applied to the skin. While it’s technically edible, I’d rather not ingest it. Therefore, I prefer using English/Hot House cucumbers as they typically aren’t waxed. Feel free to use any cucumber variety you like and peel or don’t. It’s totally up to you!
Also, when peeling aloe, I recommend wiping off the yellow liquid that oozes from the skin before juicing the clear inner flesh. This substance is a powerful laxative and gives a bitter flavor to the juice. Note that aloe juice has been associated with diabetes medicine interference (leading to hypoglycemia) and miscarriages, so as with anything you eat or drink, be sure to check with your doctor before consumption.
The Details: Soothe the Burn
Aloe, honeydew melon, and cucumbers are all alkalizing in nature, which can offset acidity in the upper GI tract. Aloe, in particular, contains gastro-protective properties that help prevent excess acidity from occurring. If damage has already been done from acid reflux, aloe has been shown to soothe and repair the damage over time. It can have amazing anti-inflammatory properties that benefit the gut when consumed.
In addition to alkalizing, cucumber and honeydew melon contain high magnesium levels, neutralizing acid secretions and soothes acid damage.

The Juicer: Kuvings REVO830
I made Aloe the Inferno using the Kuvings REVO830 juicer. This excellent machine can do more than make delicious juice!
The Kuvings REVO830‘s point of difference is its dual-feed produce hopper. The vertical cut chute is designed to handle long produce, like carrots, chard, cucumbers, and celery whole. The 3.5″ wide auto-cut hopper takes larger produce like beets, oranges, and apples with zero chopping. This innovative hopper saves you tons of time!
The REVO830 not only makes great juice, but it also creates awesome nut milk, smoothies, sorbets, and nice cream. It boasts an upgraded motor, which is both super quiet and allows you to run non-stop for up to 45 minutes.
All this goodness is backed by an astounding 15-year warranty. I recommend this machine for any home juicer. It’s one I regularly use on my own juice-feasting journey!
