I'm skeptical of any hangover remedy, but I'd make this just because it sounds good. :P

I dont think drinking to excess, to the point where you have a hangover, is healthy. Drinking that much booze will also not make you thin.

I think hangover remedies have no place in a 'this is why you're thin' category.

It's not healthy, but if you do unhealthy things only on occasion (drinking, eating chocolate cake, lying in bed all day) they're not going to make you fat or really cause other health repercussions. And this hangover remedy is healthier than others, such as Red Bulls.

I totally agree. We all fall off the "healthy" wagon occasionally, and we shouldn't beat ourselves up for it. This juice is the perfect way to get back on track after a night of a few too many.

This sounds like it would make a great (and tasty) cleanse ... not for any length of time, of course, but for those times when diet and activities make one feel "saturated". It also seems to be a great boost to one's organs.

Thank you for sharing the recipe!

I agree -- I'm not a drinker, but I do feel extra run-down or "hung over", if you will, after stuffing myself at an unhealthy meal or staying up too late. This would be a perfect pick-me-up on a morning like that!
