Hangover Helper Smoothie

This past weekend I got a request from a good friend for a smoothie to help with hangovers.  We were drinking whisky at the time, so he was probably looking towards his immediate future.  Through my extensive internet research, I surprisingly found that many of the ingredients that helped with hangovers were things I used pretty regularly and usually have in stock.  Bananas are loaded with potassium which helps replenish nutrients.  Berries help the body metabolize any alcohol left in your system after a night (or day) of boozin’ and almonds help keep that awesome nausea in check.  I also threw some spinach in there because you gotta get your greens.  Try this out next time you wake up regretting having those last 2-6 drinks.  And don’t drink and drive.
