No matter how “Green” you are. If you drink too much alcohol the night before, a hangover the next morning is inevitable! Just look at the incredible hulk in this picture.
This week I’m delivering one of my all time favorite detox drinks. Over the past month I’ve been making one of these every morning as part of my daily routine, this will keeps you regular and provides you with a boost of energy every morning with the kick it has in flavours.
If you’re following an Intermittent fasting diet, this drink is just under 100 calories which stays within the rules of a IF protocol, for beverages allowed. Although, I wouldn’t recommend drinking more than 1 a day. It’s completely natural and loaded with fibre and antioxidants from all the plants that you use for this.
Not only do the antioxidants help sober you up but this smoothie will help clean out your digestive system with the amount of fibre in it. A perfect remedy if you wake up with “gut rot” from hard alcohol.
I actually first heard about this “green” drink from comedian and UFC fighter Joe Rogan. Joe claims that fellow actor Kevin James drank one of these every morning as part of his detox and it helped him lose 60lbs. What do you think?!
So Here’s what you’ll need from your fridge.
2 Leaves of Kale
1/2 cup of water
and of course a blender!
I prefer to make this drink in blender as opposed to a juicer so I can preserve all the nutrients from the ingredients, take all of your ingredients. Mix them into a blender until everything turns to a smooth liquid and enjoy!
The HAMS Network (Alcohol Harm reduction support) claims that alcohol depletes your body of vitamins. So in order to help cure your hangover, if you load yourself up with this extremely “green” vitamin rich smoothie it’ll replenish those lost vitamins and balance you out. The ginger by itself is a powerful natural remedy. Sailors use natural ginger in their tea to help cure sea sickness. If you wake up with an upset stomach along with your hangover, ginger is great to helping aid in stomach digestion.

Personally, I love the taste. Some of my friends won’t even look at it, or even try it. Feedback is appreciated and share this remedy also to all your alcoholic co-workers.
