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)


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)


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