Frozen Grasshopper is a mint chocolate flavored alcoholic drink. This frozen dessert beverage is made with just four ingredients and a blender - perfect for St. Patrick's Day, hot summer days, or anytime your sweet tooth strikes.
In a blender, add creme de menthe, creme de cacao, and vanilla ice cream. Blend until smooth. Check consistency and add milk as needed for desired consistency.
Swirl chocolate syrup on the insides of a highball glass. Pour grasshopper into glass and serve immediately.
This recipe contains alcohol and is not suitable for those under the legal drinking age.
For a lower calorie beverage, substitute vanilla ice cream with vanilla frozen yogurt. Or, use half ice cream and half ice cubes to make a slushy drink.
For a non-alcoholic, kid-friendly version - omit the creme de menthe and creme de cacao. Add ½ teaspoon of mint extract and a few drops of green food coloring. The full ¼ cup of milk will be needed to thin your milkshake.
