P1010087.JPGIngredients:

  • 1 Energy Blendie
  • 1 banana
  • 1 passionfruit
  • 1 cup plain/ginger kombucha OR Coconut water

Method:

  1. Combine the Blendie, banana, passionfruit and ⅓ of the kombucha in a blender and blitz on low until smooth. Add the remaining kombucha and blitz until combined.

Notes:

  • Dehydration is a big factor in feeling horrible after drinking, as alcohol is a diuretic. Replenish with water and electrolytes – found in kombucha or coconut water.
  • Coconut water is a good alternative as it is hydrating and contains electrolytes
  • Banana contains potassium – electrolytes. Also helps to calm the stomach.
  • Ginger has been used in traditional medicine to treat nausea and vomiting
  • When you drink alcohol you have depleted B vitamin stores – fermented foods like kombucha are high in these B vitamins
  • Kombucha also contains good gut bacteria
  • Vitamin C is also useful for immune health and antioixidant powers  – found in the passionfruit.
  • The best cure for a hangover is to abstain from drinking alcohol in the first place!
