Mint Squash

Mint Squash, a refreshing and delicious mint flavored drink. I love the flavor of mint, so i used to buy a bunch of mint leaves whenever we go to farmer's market.

Usually i make mint chutney or mint rice. For a change i tried this squash(i saw it in some cookery show )a while ago and we really liked this a lot.The mint flavor came out very well in this squash. If you like mint flavor,give it a try.
