Now that I’m in my 40s I rarely have the need for a hangover remedy or cure. Those days are long behind me but I’m sure a few people will have the need for this hangover remedy smoothie. The real question is can you stand the noise of the blender? ;-)
You’ll notice there are some odd ingredients in this smoothie recipe such as chamomile flowers, slippery elm power and gingerroot. They are there to help with stomach issues and help relax the mind, all good things for treating a hangover, yes? Which also makes this a great smoothie for stomach pains, cramps, sickness and stress.

And if you are wondering what the heck slippery elm is: Slippery elm is used to relieve gastrointestinal conditions, sore throats, ulcers, and respiratory irritations today.
