Fresh mint (or other herb leaves) dipped in dark, rich chocolate. Blueberry, Mint & Chocolate Sauce. These ice cream toppings burst with flavor, fragrance and texture with every bite. Plus, they're a breeze to make.

My naturally-sweetened recipes with herbs and fair-trade cocoa make it easy to celebrate National Ice Cream Month—which is the entire month of July. (Sunday, July 17, 2011 is designated as National Ice Cream Day.)

Good for You, Good for Others 

Both of these recipes use my Dark Chocolate Dipping Sauce recipe recently published in my article, "7 Recipes to Fight Aging with Every Meal." Dark chocolate is a superfood with many health benefits.
