A Hangover Cure

What's That Lassie? Somebody Has A Hangover?


Is there anything more ridiculous than the self-inflicted ailment - the hangover? The movie was funny, but the real deal? Not so much. By the way, that link takes you to the Urban Dictionary defintion of "hangover"...which made me laugh my head off.  Good thing I'm not hungover because laughing while hungover hurts. See? Real life hangovers are not funny.

I’ve tried many “cures” in my day, but this morning-after drink is my favourite. I was introduced to the Banana Lassi years ago in a little beach side café in India and have been a fan ever since. The banana is rich in magnesium and potassium, which helps to balance electrolytes. The honey builds up depleted blood sugar levels and soothes the stomach, while the yogurt and water rehydrate your ailing system.

So if you’re hungover tomorrow after ringing in the New Year, this Lassie can’t rescue you.

But this lassi can!!

Banana Lassi
150 g ice cubes
150 ml water
150 g natural/plain yogurt
2 ripe bananas, peeled and roughly chopped
2 tsp honey
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg (optional)

Blend all ingredients together in a blender until smooth.

Here’s to a happy and healthy new year everybody!

Cheers! ~Party Mummy
