A recipe from Prevention's "Flat Belly Foods." Really yummy and great substitute for late afternoon snack. My husband didn't care for the minty after taste so I'll use less mint next time. The original recipe used 4 cups of peas. It also recommended a tablespoon of yoghurt and sprinkle of pumpkin seeds before serving. I used sesame seeds instead, and no yoghurt. The recipe also stated chilling at least 1 hour, but we like it hot.
