In present investigation the efforts have been made to prepare a therapeutic ready-to-serve (RTS) made from blend of aloe vera, and aonla fruit juice. The blended juice of different ratio of aloe vera and aonla fruit juice 60:40(A), 65:35(B), 70:30(C) 75:25(D) and 80:20(E) with 15% of sugar, 0.3% of acidity and 100 ppm of Potassium metabisulfite and blends were homogenized and pasteurized. The prepared therapeutic RTS is complying with Indian standards for RTS fruits beverages. The blended therapeutic RTS were analyzed for its different physicochemical, storage stability and sensory qualities. Among different blended ratio for therapeutic RTS, sample D was reached with highest sensory scores for overall acceptability. The developed therapeutic RTS could be recommended for the large scale production at industrial level.
