Serves 4
Try this minty fruit punch for an afternoon tea, a special occasion or when you need a refreshing break from working in the garden.

  • 16 fresh peppermint leaves, or 2 tablespoons dried
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • 1 cup sliced fresh strawberries
  • 1/2 cantaloupe, peeled, seeded and cut into chunks
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  1. If fresh mint leaves are not available, pour 1 cup boiling water over the dried peppermint and steep 5 minutes. Strain and use the resulting tea instead of plain water.
  2. Place the water (or cooled mint infusion), pineapple juice, and strawberries in a blender and puree. Add the mint leaves (if using), cantaloupe, and honey and blend until smooth. Chill well.
