Whether you sip it poolside or pre- or post-workout, this month’s smoothie will deliver a sweet, delicious dose of ultra-hydration on hot summer days.

It’s made with a super refreshing blend of coconut water, cucumber, and watermelon for immediate thirst-quenching and electrolyte-replenishing. And dinosaur kale toughens it up by adding fiber and the flood of antioxidants and nutrients we depend on super greens for.

Finally, a little lime and mint provides the perfect tangy twist. Go ahead, try to drink it without saying “Ahhh…” —Jennifer Kass
