    Just for sh*ts & giggles I bought a wee bottle of peppermint oil based mint flavoring at whole foods.
    Since I like to experiment with smoothies, I was looking for opinions of which, if any, fruit concoctions the stuff would work with. After all I got some positive feedback (on a different site) when I accidentally concocted my first blueberry smoothie with rosemary.
    Okay kiddies...3...2...1...discuss!~

    I like mint and strawberries together. Mangos maybe?

    A mint and watermelon granita would be yummy as an intermezzo. Maybe a fine dice or shred of fresh coconut to garnish.

    Not exactly a dessert item, (or is it?) but mint and cucumber are fabulous. Try pureeing or juicing cucumbers for a cold soup with the mint essence.

    I thought I posted here already but I guess I didn't. I like mint and grapefruit.
