This decadent, creamy Keto Grasshopper Mousse Pie is made without sugar, low carb, gluten free and nut free as well!
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:
- Healthier Low Carb Shamrock Shake
- Sugar-Free Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream
- Sugar-Free Grasshopper Milkshake
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.
It may be hard to resist one serving so it's best if you enjoy this for a special occasion, when you can share with others!
Left overs can be dangerous, you've been warned!
- You can use any pie crust you like. The nutrition info includes my own no bake crust recipe and I think chocolate is the favorite for this type of pie. But I've got others if you're not into the no bake chocolate crust. All my crusts are nut free since my youngest has a tree nut allergy. Grain Free Pie Crust, Grain Free Chocolate pie crust, Cream cheese No Roll Pie Crust, or the crust from this No Bake frozen Strawberry Pie.
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 ½ cup.
