Shakes for the morning's aches

This is the season of spirits, alcoholic as well as celestial. And while there's no quick fix for post-overindulgence syndrome -- that is, you had too much to drink and you can't get up -- you can find help at Planet Smoothie.

Try a "Hangover Over" shake, a blend of strawberries, bananas and yogurt ($3.29). The key ingredient is ginkgo, an herb that improves blood circulation, which may ease those pounding temples. Ginkgo has been shown to improve memory, which will help you recall the stupid things you did the night before. It also enhances concentration, which might keep you from getting yourself into this mess next time.

There are dozens of other shakes, including the low-fat, low-cal "Zero Gravity" and "Orbit Boosters" with bee pollen and protein powder.
