Hate green drinks? You won’t after you try this one.

Senior editor Laine Bergeson shares a super simple green drink that’s perfect for summer.

Now that this brutal winter is over, I’m celebrating with one of my favorite green drinks. This concoction is almost impossibly easy to make and tastes like the tropics. I guarantee you’ll love it — unless, of course, you hate cilantro (and I used to, so I understand). If that’s you, I have a substitute recipe below.

Cilantro and lime make up Laine’s favorite summer green drink.

Super Best Summer Green Drink:

  • 2 lime wedges
  • 1 handful fresh cilantro
  • 2 cups filtered water
  • 1 or 2 ice cubes (optional)

Blend.

Voila! One sip, and you’ll think you’re sitting on a beach in Mexico.

 

Super Second-Best Summer Green Drink (for Cilantro Haters):

  • 2 lemon wedges
  • 1 handful fresh basil
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 or 2 ice cubes (optional)

Blend.

Voila! One sip, and you’ll join your cilantro-loving friends on that sandy beach.
