Pomegranate Mint Spritzer

There is something about sparkling drinks that make them more sophisticated than other drinks. If you add sparkling water to any plain juice, it magically transforms into a fancy drink. In this non-alcoholic spritzer, sparkling water is mixed with pomegranate juice and lime juice in the Magic Bullet blender, and infused with mint, lime wedges and fresh pomegranate seeds. These flavors combined with carbonation create a refreshing drink suitable for any special occasion. Pomegranate Mint Spritzer Recipe Ingredients 2 cups […]

Strawberry Mint Watermelon Salad

The summer can be brutal, and the majority of the time, I just want to enjoy a nice, refreshing piece of fruit. Almost daily, my kids and I venture to the pool with packed lunches and sunscreen. The last thing I want to eat is a sandwich, so I created this salad as my g0-to. 😉 It’s light, refreshing, but still totally filling. And, you won’t feel full or bloated in your bathing suit! We all know how important that it! […]

Grasshopper Smoothie

Happy St. Patrick’s Day! In celebration of all things green today, I made this green grasshopper smoothie. Don’t worry, it doesn’t contain any real grasshoppers! It is inspired by grasshopper desserts, which usually contain mint and chocolate. This healthy smoothie is loaded with spinach, banana, almond milk, mint extract, and cacao nibs. It is really refreshing when cold, so I like to freeze my bananas beforehand and use a handful of frozen spinach straight from the freezer. Fresh mint leaves […]

Mint Watermelon Juice

Fresh watermelon juice is simple, refreshing and delicious. It’s perfect in almost any circumstance: at a party, relaxing by yourself, accompanying a barbeque… the pairings are endless! I’ve added mint to this recipe because, well, why not! This is a great recipe to keep in your back pocket for when you hesitate while considering an entire watermelon in the store and think, “There’s no way I’m going to eat this whole thing.” Now you don’t have to! Mint Watermelon Juice […]

Grapefruit Sorbet

I am always looking for healthy dessert alternatives and the other day I made this grapefruit sorbet with a little sugar and lemon juice. It is really easy to make and you don’t need an ice cream maker. You can skip the sugar of course, but, as you know, grapefruits are on the bitter side without adding the additional sugar. I like to top these with fresh mint leaves to introduce a new, refreshing flavor to this dessert. A fun […]

Tangy Mint Sauce

This tangy mint sauce is made with fresh mint leaves. It can be used as a dipping sauce, or to add more flavor to your dish just by drizzling a little over the top. Although it works best with Greek dishes, you can also serve it with some grilled chicken skewers (my favorite) or in a pita! Mint is one of my favorite ingredients to cook with, because it adds a strong, interesting flavor. I love trying it with foods […]

Cucumber Mint Gimlet

I was recently at a wedding where a friend, who is a Bar Rescue enthusiast, showed off his bartending skills and made me some great gin gimlets. I thought I would try my hand at a version of it with this Cucumber Mint Gimlet recipe since I usually have all of these ingredients in rotation in my kitchen. Quick and easy to make on a weekend afternoon or even after work. Or both. Cucumber Mint Gimlet Ingredients 6 English cucumbers […]

Mint Chocolate Chip Smoothie

I love smoothies. I drink them almost every day. Last weekend at the grocery store, I walked by some mint and impulsively bought it because it smelled so good, but I realized I had way too much of it once I got home. Instead of making my usual berry smoothie for lunch, I decided to experiment with mint and chocolate in a smoothie. Yes, the chocolate chips add on a few more calories, but in this smoothie, it’s worth it! […]

Mini Mint Chocolate Cupcakes

I LOVE mini cupcakes because I don’t feel guilty after eating one versus eating a whole regular-sized cupcake! They are the perfect little treats if you’re watching your figure, but loveee dessert! These little cupcakes are packed with rich chocolately flavor and a burst of refreshing mint. Let the Magic Bullet do all of the work of mixing together the batter. It whips up chocolate cupcake batter in almost no time, so you can spend your time doing the fun […]
