There ! Saw some fresh aloe vera in the supermarket and grabbed a few to make some "cooling effect" dessert soup.
I have a few variations on making this simple aloe vera dessert soup. The quickest way that I've shared in last September during LTU Theme Apple : Green Apple Aloe Vera with Honey Soup
This time, I'm adding some dried figs and sweet & bitter apricot kernels.
Apple, Aloe Vera with Dried Figs
2 small green apples (peeled, cored and quartered)
Dried figs (干无花果) about 10 pcs
Sweet & bitter apricot kernels (南,北杏) about 1 teaspoon each
Aloe vera (fresh) about 200g cut in chunky cubes
Water 1.5 ltr
Crystal rock sugar a few pieces (adjust the sweetness to your preference)
Add rock sugar, dried figs & apricot kernels into a pot of hot boiling water to boil about 10 - 15 mins in medium-low flame.
Add apples, boil a further 10 mins.
Lastly add in the aloe vera and boil another 5 mins.

Served either hot or chilled ... Enjoying a bowl of sweet refreshing and nourishing Apple Aloe Vera with Dried Figs dessert soup.
Enjoy ! Have a blessed weekend ^-^
