Uses for Mint Leaves

What’s not to love about mint? It’s easy to grow, grows quickly, and has numerous culinary and therapeutic benefits. Its fresh taste complements just about any food group and blends seamlessly with many breakfasts, desserts and beverages. You can’t beat the feeling of making your evening mojito with homegrown mint leaves freshly plucked from the garden. With several exciting mint varieties to choose from the uses are endless. Here are some of our favorites.



Smoothies- Mint adds a refreshing hint to one of summer’s most popular beverages. Add a few mint leaves to your favorite smoothie for an unexpected twist. The blender will chop the mint perfectly and infuse the smoothie with a subtle fresh mint flavor.

Ice Cubes- Freeze mint leaves in ice cubes for a garnish that does double time. The green pop of color looks pretty and infuses your beverage with mint when the ice cube melts.

Water/Juice- Why should cocktails have all the fun? Spice up plain water with a dash of mint by muddling or bruising mint leaves with your fingers. Simply add water or juice for a refreshing non-alcoholic beverage you can enjoy any time of day.
