The Grasshopper


This classic grasshopper beverage is an after dinner drink. It is the perfect dessert! It is a great combination of ice cream, creme de menth and creme de cacao. I am a huge fan of blended drinks and this was definitely my favorite one this summer, so I wanted to share it for this month's Recipe ReDux! Instead of using regular ice cream, I used low-fat frozen vanilla yogurt... making it less calories for the same great taste!
