recipe

We have news for you. That supermarket mint chip ice cream with the nuclear-green color? It doesn't have any mint leaves in it. It has mint oil or fake mint flavoring, and that nasty color comes from artificial coloring. Real, fresh mint leaves give our Dirty Mint a fresh, cool intensity. Why is it "dirty"? Because we use brown sugar in the base, which gives the ice cream a deep caramel punch and a natural light brown color. It is also "dirty" because we don't strain out the mint. Leaving it in deepens the flavor the longer the ice cream is in the freezer. (Warning: This has been known to convert mint ice cream haters.)

Follow this recipe (and the variation that follows) to make terrines using different fruit-flavor combinations; just start with six ounces of each of three types of fruit. Berries and stone fruits (plums, peaches, and nectarines) need to be cooked before pureeing, while melons and mangoes do not.

Icy melon milk granita is an easy make-ahead treat for a hot summer day. (No need to scrape our sherbet-like mixture every 30 minutes, as with most granitas -- just rake it once at the end for the right consistency.)

recipe

Think of it as the all-American version of Venice's frosty-fruity sgroppino cocktail. Instead of the Italian version's lemons, freeze the flesh of a watermelon and puree it to an ice-cold slush. Add vodka and Prosecco to the mix (or leave them out altogether).

You'll go nuts for these scrumptious treats, made with almond butter and toasted almonds for an update on the beloved peanut-butter sandwich cookie. The make-ahead icebox dough is cut into thin rounds that are perfect for pairing and filling.

Even desserts might be helpful in the battle against disease. Tangy mango granita is packed with flavor and vitamins A and C. Fresh mangoes are loaded with vitamins A and C. Whisking the granita as it freezes ensures that it reaches the proper consistency.

recipe

Scoops of sorbet made with red papaya and a zingy dose of freshly squeezed lime juice pack plenty of antioxidant power in the form of lycopene and vitamin C. Use red-fleshed papayas, such as Sunrise Solo or Maradol. Be sure to ask your grocer which ones will have flesh with a rosy hue since a papaya's skin and shape may not be a good indication of its interior color. Return to Healthy Lycopene Menu;
