Hangovers are definitively worse as we get older, and having to deal with serious morning after fears and a sore stomach doesn't help.
However, should you be feeling a little fragile there yourself, we might have something that will help. (No, you won't be able to order this in, but hear us out; this is almost as good, we swear).
Say hello to The Ultimate Hangover Smoothie, a drink so good for you it'll have you back on your feet in no-time.It contains coconut oil, which is extremely nourishing and will help to balance blood sugar. Ginger helps to reduce motion sickness and inflammation in the gut, and unprocessed sea salt will add extra minerals and trace elements to the smoothie. Oh, and the greens will help to alkalize and detoxify the body even more, as well as provide quality vitamins and minerals.
In other words; just what your poor body needs after a night on margaritas and rosé.
- ½ cup filtered water, or cold herbal tea
- ½ small cucumber
- ½ avocado
- ½ lemon, juice
- 1 cup frozen mangoes
- 1 Tbsp raw honey, optional
- 1 tsp extra-virgin coconut oil
- Small knob of ginger
- Pinch cinnamon
- Pinch Himalayan or Celtic sea salt
- Big handful of spinach (or kale if you prefer)
- Hemp seeds, to garnish, optional
In a high-speed blender, starting with the liquids, put everything together and blend until nice and smooth.
