30 Bananas a Day!

Does anyone here eat mint (fresh herb) and if so, how?  In salads and/or smoothies?  A friend gave me some cuttings so I have it growing in my garden!  TIA

Ilove mint in the summer!!!
what i do is blend a couple apples, grapes, greens and mint until smooth, pour it in a bowl and add a hanful of grapes and eat like a soup :)
True...a little goes a long way...
thanks Andrew and Vanessa...sounds delicious!
I love it crushed in water or just eating it plain. With dates? Sounds great!!
Right now i'm loving tomatoes, dates and a handful of mint blended as a sauce to pour over spiralized zuchini with diced pineapple and red pepper tossed through...
cantaloupe and mint smoothie! So good. Also like it in lemon water.

bunch of dates in a blender, fill with water, add 6-7 leaves of fresh mint, a dash of natural organic vanilla extract...let soak 5 minutes, blend into a vanilla-mint datorade! *drool* soooo yummy!


also, frozen bananas, chilled strawberries, (i did 10 of each) with 10 leaves of mint, toss em in the food processor, serve as ice cream with a sprig of mint to make it pretty, enjoy! 

there is a difference between mints - here are pics of peppermint & common mint.

i eat peppermint raw in my salads and absolutely love it, it has a tender smaller leaf, sweet, aromatic but not as profuse as common mint.

 

this is common mint, its a bit tougher larger leaf and not as sweet but its a profuse grower so its easier to get and a popular alternative.

 

I have mint in my garden and it took over like crazy, Not particularly a bad thing, i like mint tea. 

hey maxwell - mint in fruit smoothies are to die for - so delicious, you should give it ago !

After reading all of this post i think i will!
