So... does it do the chilling thing mint water does? I loved the mint water for beating the summer heat. You were right about the kale, so I'll try this soon, too. Rob's been ASKING for kale smoothies. (Sorry, should'a told you to sit first. LOL)

I fell in love with mint lemonade in Israel where it's the norm to serve lemonade with mint. You can just add fresh sprigs of mint to the batch, too. I'm glad to see my favorite drink here!
