peachy mint shake


1 cup water
1/2 cup fresh mint leaves, plus extra mint sprigs for garnish
3 cups chopped fresh peaches (about 5 peaches), plus a few extra slices for garnish
1 cup vanilla ice cream




In a small saucepan, bring the water and the mint leaves to a boil. Turn off the heat, cover, and let the mint leaves steep for 5 minutes. Let the mint water cool to room temperature.

Place the mint water (including leaves) peaches, ice cream and 1 cup of ice cubes in a blender and puree until smooth. Serve immediately in chilled glasses and garnish with a slice of peach and a sprig of mint.
