Incredible Edible Mint

Well hello, you mesmerizing green beauty. Yes, I am talking to you, you fresh leafy herb. Mint is known for many wonderful health benefits. It is a palate cleanser, promotes digestion, soothes stomachs in cases of indigestion or inflammation.

They even state in a recent study that mint has an effect on alertness, retention, cognitive function and memory retention.  It said more, but I don’t remember everything it said. (haha) Obviously, I need more mint in my diet.

I am going to turn you loose right now so you can get busy creating this delicious and nutritious treat. Be sure to get the kiddos involved if you have them. It’s quite magical to see how frozen bananas can transform into a creamy, velvety ice cream. Enjoy! Blessings, amie sue
