Mint is one of my favorite fresh herbs to have on hand. Refreshing and flexible, you can use it in a whole lot more than you’d think, which is why we’re dedicating the next two weeks to mint!

So if you have more mint on your hands than you know what to do with, here are seven deliciously refreshing recipes with mint!

1. Mint Tea

Add a sprig or two to a mug and cover in hot water. Let steep for a few minutes then enjoy! I like mine with a dash of honey.

2. Mint Ice Cubes

Brew your mint tea extra strong then freeze it into ice cubes! You’ll have instant minty refreshment anytime you want. It’s perfect in water, lemonade, and fresh juices.
