Greek yogurt with berries

Berries and mint pair beautifully. Mix plain unsweetened Greek yogurt with strawberries (or mixed berries) and sprinkle with chopped fresh mint.

Mint tea to aid digestion

Use 5-10 big leaves or more depending on how strong you want it. Tear the leaves and place in mug. Pour very hot (not boiling) water over the leaves and let steep 5-10 minutes.

Strawberry, mint & basil with balsamic

This combo is great alone as a side, or on top of mixed greens. Use it as a bruschetta topper with goat cheese! About 2 cups cut strawberries mixed with 10-20 leaves each of chopped mint and basil. 3-4 tablespoons of a high-quality aged balsamic will finish it perfectly.

Minty lime fizz

Muddle 5-8 mint leaves in the bottom of a glass. Add ice, a healthy squeeze of lime and club soda with a few drops of stevia.

Mint up your water
Add fresh mint to plain or sparkling water, or even freeze whole leaves in ice cubes to add beautiful color to your beverage.
