Hangover Cure Smoothie


If you’ve ever had a hangover then you are probably familiar with that feeling of needing to fill your body with anything sugary and carbohydrate related to help make you feel human again. This smoothie is packed full of natural sugars and antioxidants and it helps you to dehydrate and get your day back on track. It has a higher sugar content than smoothies that I would normally make but it is much better for you than the sugary fizzy drinks and crisps that so many of us often grab.


  • 1 large orange
  • Large handfuls of berries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 banana
  • 100g live plain yogurt, dairy-free yogurt or coconut yogurt – Tesco have started doing a dairy-free yogurt that isn’t packed full of sugar


  1. Squeeze the juice of the orange into your blender
  2. Add the remaining ingredients and blitz until well mixed
  3. Drink straight away
