The Red Tea Detox

Published


It’s true, Resistance fighters: recreating otherworldly green milk, like what Luke Skywalker drinks near his hideout on the planet Ahch-To in “The Last Jedi,” is within your earthly capabilities.

Actor Mark Hamill, who reprised his Skywalker character in the film revealed on Twitter Sunday the beverage he drinks in an early scene of the film is actually made of much terrestrially available ingredients.

In response to question about what the drink tasted like, Hamill explained that “the green milk was just regular coconut water dyed green in post-production.” (A behind-the-scenes clip here shows the milk was white during filming.)

Those without their own personal post-production departments will need other means to tint their thala-siren. Fortunately, a couple drops of green food coloring, available at most grocery stores, should do the trick.

Those looking for a tastier version of galactic milk can head to Disneyland’s Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, where culinary teams worked for months on creating two versions of frozen bantha milks. Creators of the new land, open now, told the Chronicle in May the floral-tasting green and tropical blue bantha milks sold on site are plant-based and dairy-free, made from a mixture of rice and coconut milks.
