10 Refreshing Summer Mint Recipes

It’s scorching this summer! We just returned from two weeks in Oregon with several days of 100+ temperatures. Seriously hot and in desperate need of cooling off. One thing we discovered was adding fresh mint from my parents garden to our recipes to give us a refreshing and cooling sensation. It’s such a simple concept, but it works! We had the kids go pick a bunch of leaves each day, which they thoroughly enjoyed, and we kept a jar of mint sun tea going at all times to add to the other recipes we discovered. I’ve put together some of our favorites, check them out and cool yourself off.
