I haven’t had chocolate chip mint in a really long time, and I thought the flavor combination would make a great Grasshopper Pie. I adapted my Chocolate “Cheesecake” recipe to make a raw, dairy-free, egg-free, gluten-free treat.
When you look at the ingredients, they are so healthy that you might not think this is a dessert, but oh no. This is a completely healthy indulgence. And when you eat this Grasshopper pie, you don’t feel deprived of any indulgence in the slightest.
I even wanted the color of a traditional Grasshopper Pie, so I took spinach and blended it in. I was VERY pleased with the results, and happy to say at our Christmas dinner it was the most requested pie, amongst the apple, pecan, cheesecake and pumpkin pie. I went back for seconds, too!
The Verdict: You cannot tell that there is spinach in this. I love how you get some raw veggies in while enjoying dessert! This was such a hit. I let JSarr try the batter before serving it, and he said he loved the mint, but it needed chocolate. I told him, it’s already in the crust.
Here are other cashew-based dairy-free desserts.
