A Grasshopper is a sweet, mint flavored after dinner drink  with its green color coming from creme de menthe. It was created in 1918 in the French Quarter of Louisiana. While this something I have never drank or want to drink, the green color and the mint flavor work perfectly for celebrating St.Patrick’s Day with a family or even Easter with the fun light green color!

St.Patricks Day was never a holiday we’d celebrate when I was growing up,  in my Italian household. My mom never made green food and I never ate Corned Beef and Cabbage until I met my husband and married 19 years ago!

BUT my children see and hear about all things green during this time of year so I feel obligated as a momma to provide them some of these traditional favorites during this time of year.

Some of the treats they love:

But this dessert has been their number 1 favorite by far! Mousse has always been their favorite, just like me. So adding some mint and some green color made this a win win for the whole family to celebrate St.Patty’s day!

Drizzle on a little more Chocolate sauce right before serving for extra deliciousness!

Super light texture, but totally satisfying in every bite.

Brenda’s Notes:

If you don’t have peppermint stevia it’s not the end of the world but it adds an extra punch to that mint flavor. You can use any sweetener you enjoy, I would say just 1/2 cup.
