Grasshopper Pie | 2 Cookin Mamas - Easy, creamy and ice cold frozen treat that's perfect for summer! Oreo crust, marshmallow & mint cream filling with a few extra cookies sprinkled in will win anyone over. #recipe #dessert #pie

With the unofficial start of summer next week (well it’s already here in South Florida but the rest of you will catch up soon) it’s almost barbecue season and to kick it off a bunch of us food bloggers are holding, what we like to call, the Great Blogger Barbecue. A barbecue you say? Just imagine a shady porch, with a paddle fan slowly rotating, comfortable chairs with bright cushions, freshly mowed grass and flowers everywhere, a hot grill and some of the best darn food & drink you’ll find anywhere. Sound good? If so, join us for our barbecue shindig and drool over these 50 out-of-this-world recipes featuring everything from cocktails (and mocktails) to appetizers, side dishes to main meals and, of course we wouldn’t even think of leaving out, desserts.

So what am I bringing to the party? This easy, deliciously cold & creamy, no-bake Grasshopper Pie that is sure to please everyone from the pie lover to the ice cream lover to the chocolate lover. I had almost forgotten this recipe that I used to make when I first got married until someone mentioned cold creamy desserts. I don’t know why I haven’t made it again before this but I can tell you, now that it’s on my radar again, it will be made time and again during the summer months.

This version is made with the help of Creme de Menthe but it can also be made with peppermint extract and green food coloring for a non-alcoholic version. You can also cut down on the time it takes by using Cool Whip instead of whipping fresh cream and it comes out just as good. Of course, I had to make it just a little more decadent, so I added some chopped Mint Chocolate Cookies to the creamy mix. Oh, my mouth is sooo watering, I’m thinking of eating the last piece right now! (willpower girl, willpower)

Of course, I have plenty of other favorites too for the hot days ahead, like my Key Lime Pie, No-Churn White Chocolate Ice Cream or Chocolate Covered Bananas but I’m definitely adding this Grasshopper Pie to the mix. It’s the perfect addition for any gathering of friends and always tastes best on a hot summer day. (And it’s no bake so you’ll stay a lot cooler too!) Serve it along with some of the other yummy recipes below, brought to you by some of the best food bloggers around, and enjoy saying hello to summer!

    I made this a long time ago and I don’t know why I haven’t since! I didn’t have Cream de Menthe before – sounds like an interesting ingredient I need to check out

      Same here. Hadn’t made it in a while & actually had to go buy an entire bottle of Creme de Menthe. I hated buying so much but my husband convinced me that it was great poured over ice cream too so we would use it up. Umm, ulterior motive perhaps?
