Mint Chocolate Pie aka Grasshopper Pie

Perfect for St. Patrick’s Day, Christmas or ANY time you’re in the mood for some fluffy creamy mint chocolate deliciousness! Oh how I LOVE Grasshopper PIE.

For Paleo & Vegan, or Not!

My Dad’s favorite dessert is Grasshopper Pie. (WHY is it called Grasshopper?? I don’t know for sure, but I DO know there are no bugs in this pie, lol) I made this pie for him (well, myself too because I’m obsessed with mint choc, lol).

We’re celebrating his birthday along with the others. He’s not vegan/Paleo/gluten-free yada yada etc, but I bet he likes this healthier version at least as much as the original. Fingers crossed 🙂Grasshopper Pie (Paleo Vegan}

Recipe Makeover!

Bring on the minty FLUFF! Cream filling that’s so light, so unbelievably smooth. Paired with a chocolate crust! Omg. It’s the perfect combination! Who doesn’t love Grasshopper Pie?

I love it, but I had to do another recipe MAKEOVER to make it healthier by swapping out the conventional ingredients for natural ones! I love it!

Most recipes for grasshopper pie are made with tons of refined sugar, gluten, dairy/cream/sweetened condensed milk, marshmallows and/or eggs, artificial food coloring. And not only that, a lot are just crushed up oreos, and cool whip (aka a bowl of chemicals & cancer causing ingredients..) Junk that I don’t want to put in my body.

This pie is a “Pretty Pie”– made with REAL whole-food ingredients: walnuts, dates, cacao, cashews, mint extract, coconut oil, and a SECRET ingredient! Shhh 😉Grasshopper Pie {Vegan & Paleo}


You would never guess by tasting it that this pie is completely packed full of healthy ingredients! Including VEGETABLES. You can’t taste ’em, but they’re in there! lol!

100% natural – NO food coloring. It’s food colored by FOOD 😀 No, shockingly, it’s NOT avocado. This pie is totally hiding a giant cup of spinach!!! Hahahah don’t tell your kids! They’ll NEVER KNOW.

Secretly nutrient packed, fiber-rich, gorgeously vibrant green. You’ll absolutely feel like a goddess knowing you’re nourishing your body.

No dairy and gluten or processed foods that make you feel gross. No refined sugar to put you in a food coma. This pie is light and refreshing, not heavy.

Grasshopper Sans Alcohol

I originally planned to use creme de menthe in this recipe, but after doing some research on what exactly is IN it, I just couldn’t bring myself to do it. I’m not against alcohol, but I am against refined sugar and artificial food coloring (which are ingredients in creme de menthe– it’s basically just simple syrup, alcohol steeped mint leaves plus green food coloring).

So I decided to use natural ingredients and mint extract instead. And the result is so delicious! You don’t need the liqueur. (And now you don’t have to make a special trip to the liquor store to make this pie. Yay!)

Who’s ready for some minty fluff on a brownie crust?! ME! #getinmybelly

Brownie Crust

Mint Cream Filling 


To make the crust:

  • Pulse together all ingredients in a food processor until a sticky dough forms, adding a splash of water at the end to help blend if needed.
  • Press crust evenly into a pie plate (lined with parchment for easier removal).

To make the filling:

  • {Use cashews that have been soaked overnight in a bowl of water or soaked in hot water for 2 hours. Drain rinse and shake dry} Blend cashews and spinach in a food processor until completely broken down.
  • Scrape down sides and add remaining ingredients and blend again.
  • Taste and adjust for sweetness and minty-ness. 
  • Pour over crust, spread smooth with a spatula. Cover and freeze until set (about 2 hours).
  • Garnish with chocolate shavings or cacao nibs (optional). Enjoy!!
