Minty cool low carb grasshopper pie. With an easy chocolate crust and a no-bake filling, this is a perfect dessert for a hot summer day! This post is sponsored by Safest Choice Eggs.
I am all about the no-bake desserts lately. From ice cream to popsicles to no-bake cheesecake, I am having a ball creating recipes that only require no oven and perhaps only a little heat from the stove-top. It just feels right for summertime. It’s not that it’s even all that hot here right now.
In fact, overall it’s been rather a rather cool summer in the NorthEast. And even if it is blazing hot out, I am blessed to have central AC so turning on the oven doesn’t mean turning my kitchen into Hades. But there’s something so appealing about a cool, creamy dessert that you pull from the fridge or the freezer to cap off your warm summer day. This low carb no-bake grasshopper pie is no exception.
I was inspired to make this when we had friends over for the 4th of July. And it definitely was NOT a blazing hot day. In fact, we were all hunkering down because Hurricane Arthur was sending us plenty of wind and rain.
All local Independence Day festivities were canceled – this is a big deal in my town, which prides itself on having the largest Independence Day parade in Massachusetts. It didn’t feel much like a holiday, so we needed some special treat to make it a little more festive.
