Fresh Mint Blended Iced Coffee- And Weekend Projects

A fact about me.  As much as cooking food is my hobby, coffee is my hero.   I wouldn’t be able to complete everything without it.

As a work-at-home mom of three sons- all 5 and under,  I depend on the occasional quiet moment where I can sip on coffee, to get me going on my next task.   Whether it’s preparing healthy meals, driving the kiddos around, playing games, reading books, doing the laundry, organizing the family, working out, working on this blog, or working out in the yard.  It is always nice to take a little break.

I love creating sweet treats using fresh mint from my garden.  Once you start using fresh mint instead of imitation peppermint extract, you will never go back.  I promise.

My husband and I have spent the last few weekends, getting everything planted in our garden.   Last year, we built a raised garden bed.  We loved it so much, that we we built another one this year.

You don’t see many vegetables yet, but come July and August, we will be feasting on perfect flavors of summer!  Since I spend all day, running around and working, and lifting things ( and lifting people.) My muscles can be sore at the end of the day.   I turn to TYLENOL® 8 HR Muscle Aches & Pain to help me relive my aches and pains of working out in the yard.

It is nice to get my body working and moving again after being stuck inside all winter.   Planting out vegetable garden is hard work, but worth it all the same.  TYLENOL® 8 HR Muscle Aches & Pain helps temporarily relieve pain.

I purchased this TYLENOL® 8 HR Muscle Aches & Pain. at Target.  I found it in the pharmacy aisle, along with the other pain relief products.

Ok, back to this amazing coffee.   I made a simple mint syrup using the fresh mint from my herb garden.  I blended this coffee with ice in my blender.  You don’t have to though.  This mint syrup can be added to leftover cold coffee on ice.  You can add it to hot coffee as well.
