Grasshopper Pie is thick and creamy and full of chocolate and minty flavors. Grasshopper Pie was a family favorite dessert my mom always made over the holidays. I decided to recreate her recipe to be healthier. The pie still has all the lovely flavors that bring me back to being a kid allowing me to enjoy the holidays and not feel left out.
My moms recipe has marshmallows, whipped cream, Oreos and dye filed creme de menthe liquor. I don’t eat any of those foods since they are inflammatory and can sauce my rheumatoid arthritis to flare up. Even with my special diet, I wanted to be able to eat one of my all time favorite holiday desserts so I created a healthier version of my moms grasshopper pie that I could enjoy. I first made this recipe for Thanksgiving and all my gluten and dairy loving family members enjoyed it so much there were not leftovers. My brother. even said he liked it more than my moms recipe. Sorry mom!
