An experiment was conducted to study the feasibility of blending papaya and Aloe vera juice in different ratio for preparation of blended Ready-to-Serve (RTS) beverage and assess their storage life at ambient temperature. The prepared blended RTS were organoleptically evaluated by adopting 9 point hedonic scale. Among different blended ratio for RTS beverage, sample with 5 and 10 percent of Aloe vera juice reached the highest hedonic scores. It was also found that prepared blended RTS beverage could be successfully storage at refrigerated temperature for the period of 3 months without significant changes in chemical and senatorial quality profile.
