Healthy Grasshopper Pie

Servings: 1 9" pie
Prep Time: 50 mins
Cook Time: 10 mins
Total Time: 1 hr
Grasshopper Pie is a minty pie that’s usually on top of a chocolate cookie crust with a topping of whipped cream.

Ingredients

Chocolate Cracker Crust:

  • 2 cups Chocolate Cracker Crumbs (I used my Chocolate Crackers, recipe also in the cookbook!)
  • ¼ tsp Salt
  • 3 Large Egg Whites or 5 tbs Coconut Oil (melted)

Filling:

  • ½ cup Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk
  • 1 tbs Unflavored Gelatin
  • 3 cups Low Fat Cottage Cheese
  • cups Plain, Nonfat Greek Yogurt
  • ¼ packed cup Baby Spinach
  • 2 tsp Liquid Stevia Extract
  • 1-1½ tsp Mint Flavor (depends on how minty you want it – I used 1½ teaspoons)

Instructions

For The Chocolate Cracker Crust:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and spray a 9” springform pan with cooking spray.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, stir together the chocolate cracker crumbs and salt. Stir in the egg whites. Mixture should be thick and slightly sticky, more like a chocolate “dough” rather than the typical crumbly cracker crust.
  • Scoop the mixture into the prepared pan and flatten it out. Press the dough up the sides of the pan. Bake for 15 minutes. Let cool completely.

For the Filling:

  • In a medium-sized microwave-safe bowl, whisk together the almond milk and gelatin. Microwave at 15-second intervals, stirring between each one, until the mixture is warm and the gelatin has dissolved. Set aside.
  • In a high-speed blender, add the cottage cheese, yogurt, spinach, stevia extract and mint flavor. Purée until completely smooth. Add the set aside almond milk/gelatin mixture into the blender. Purée until smooth. Mixture should be thick and creamy. Pour the mixture into the pie crust.
  • Cover the pan with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight. Slice and serve, or store in the fridge covered with plastic wrap for up to 5 days.

Recipe Notes

  • Feel free to use an 8″ pan instead of 9″ if you like taller pies!
  • I originally wasn't going to share the recipe here because I worked so incredibly hard on publishing Naughty or Nice.  But I wanted to provide it here because that way, you can determine whether or not the cookbook is for you!
