A Great Way to Use Up Mint Leaves

Minty Berry Summer Lollies – Good Serving for 6

Mint is probably my favourite herb to grow in the vegetable garden. I enjoy their aromatic smell and refreshing taste. They are also so easy to look after – the more you cut them the more they grow. 

I also grow red currants, raspberries, and blackcurrants in my garden, so I am going to make the most of the berries with this easy recipe which you can make with your children.

You Will Need:

  • A bowl of mixed berries (whatever you can find in your garden), chopped into small cubes.
  • A handful of mint, finely chopped.
  • Half a litre of fruity flavoured water, preferably non-sparkling.
  • Ice lollies mould.

To Make:

Place the mixed berries and some chopped mint at the bottom of the ice lolly mould. Pour the flavoured water carefully into each of the moulds until they fill up. Place them into the freezer for around 4 hours until they freeze to enjoy the taste of summer!
