We know what you're thinking, and no...there are no actual grasshoppers in this pie. In fact, this Grasshopper Pie is completely vegan: completely dairy-free yet with an incredibly smooth creaminess. Grasshopper Pie is a vintage, nostalgic favorite featuring a vibrant green (hence the name), cool, and minty dessert layered on top of a dark chocolate, crumbly crust. This version of Grasshopper Pie is a way to make your sweet tooth happy while getting around dietary restrictions. You don’t even have to turn the oven on to enjoy this hopping, happening treat!
