Grasshopper Ice Cream Pie
This Grasshopper Ice Cream Pie is inspired by the famous grasshopper cocktail which is minty, creamy, and green! This is a healthy take on a mint chocolate ice cream pie. It substitutes some of the cream with nonfat yogurt and uses canola oil instead of butter to make the crust. A few drops of natural green food dye give this dessert a green tint!
To make this, I begin by crumbling chocolate snap cookies in a food processor and mix them with canola oil to make the chocolate crust. For the filling, I whip cream with sugar to make stiff peaks. Then I fold in yogurt, peppermint extract and food dye. When the crust is cold, I spread the creamy mixture over the top and sprinkle over the remaining chocolate cookie crumbs. Freeze for 5 hours and enjoy!
