This is a really simple but satisfying recipe that will curb your post-dinner craving for dessert but leave you feeling refreshed rather than regretful! It's not difficult either- it only requires four ingredients and about four minutes of your time! The mint isn't overpowering since you're using fresh leaves; I wouldn't use mint flavoring as a substitute. It's just a nice, mild, twist on the whipped cream:) Plus, mint grows like crazy! If you're considering planting an herb garden but don't know where to start- mint is the way to go. You really can't fail. You just have to be attentive because one day you'll find that it's taken over your entire garden if you aren't careful!

blueberries with homemade mint whipped cream

1 1/2 cups blueberries, rinsed
1/2 cup heavy whipping cream
1/8 cup granulated sugar
4 mint leaves

In a standing mixer (or, alternatively, using a hand mixer), beat the heavy whipping cream on medium for about a minute. Add the sugar and mint leaves and beat on medium high for about three more minutes or until hard peaks form. Pick out the mint leaves, and serve over blueberries! This should be enough to serve four people. Mmmmm and they'll love it!
