Hangover Cure Green Smoothie

recipe by Stanley’s Pharmacy (“Drinks & Drugs” – Pharmacy & Wellness Bar)

Stanley George relies on herbal tonics alongside traditional Western medicine to give his NYC clients the best of both worlds to his bleary-eyed Saturday morning clients. His hangover remedy tea is popularly consumed with a dose of Advil on the side. I can’t really say I’m much of a drinker anymore, but I do know all too well what a hangover feels like and I don’t doubt that I’ll experience one again, but even if I never have such good fortune, I’m sure this smoothie concoction below works miracles regardless of your physical state – it’s said to detoxify, rebuild electrolytes, and restore your body’s normal pH levels.

Ingredients:

  • 1 tbsp coconut oil – to help brain function and balance glucose levels
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt or nut yogurt –  probiotics help to bring back digestive balance (you can go with water kefir, too)
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds – also excellent for digestive balance
  • 1 small banana – for potassium and to help soothe your stomach
  • 1/2 cup frozen spinach or kale – to aid in detox and alkalinity
  • 1/2 cup fresh or frozen blueberries – powerful antioxidants to help the system reverse yesterday’s damage
  • 1 cup coconut water – to hydrate and restore electrolytes
  • Honey and cinnamon to taste – excellent mood elevators (omit honey or use another sweetener if honey’s a no-go for you)
  • 2-3 ice cubes

Directions:
