Grasshopper Pie Milkshake

There is nothing better than a frozen, retro Grasshopper Pie. Unless you make it into an adult milkshake! Chocolate Mint ice cream, Creme de Menthe liqueur and some chocolate cookie crumbs do the trick. Made perfect with a cookie crumb rimmed glass to drink from! Grasshopper Pie and this milkshake contain Creme de Menthe, a minty liqueur. If desiring an alcohol-free option, swap the liqueur for milk. The shake will still be minty from the ice cream.

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups Chocolate Mint Ice Cream (green in color)
  • 1 ounce Crème de Menthe , purchased or homemade
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1/4-1/2 cup ground Chocolate cookie/wafer crumbs (I used Pamela’s Gluten-Free Extreme Chocolate Mini Cookies)

Instructions

Rimming the Milkshake Glass with Cookie Crumbs:

  1. Reserving the 1 tablespoon cookie crumbs, place remaining cook crumbs in a small plate. Smooth out to make an even top surface.
  2. Take the milkshake serving glass and place the rim on top of the chocolate mint ice cream, adding slight pressure twist the glass in the ice cream to create a ring approximately 1/4 inch deep.
  3. Place the rimmed glass rim-side down into the cookie crumbs so the crumbs are covering the ice cream ring on the glass. Gently twist the glass from side to side allowing the crumbs to fully cover the ice cream ring. Lift from crumbs and set aside to dry.

Making the Milkshake:

  1. Combine the ice cream, Creme de Menthe and 1 tablespoon cookie crumbs in a blender and blend until smooth. NOTE: Milk may be substituted for the Creme de Menthe if a non-alcohol version is desired.
