I've been having a variation of this breakfast a lot this summer. This particular bowl has Kashi Strawberry Fields cereal, yogurt, peaches, mangoes, cherries, and fresh mint from the yard. My mom adds 2 leaves of mint to black tea every morning. It adds a nice fresh flavor. It's also really good in iced tea or fruit juice drinks. I made brownies the other day and melted mint chocolate into the batter to add flavor. My dad made a lemon tart and mint went well with that too. It's not hard to grow either. When I helped my friend Niki move into her apartment we smelled mint by the front door; I spotted some 'volunteer' mint growing in the grass.
