Grasshopper Pie

I’m always looking for a little green to make around St. Patrick’s Day…and since mint chocolate is one of my very favorite flavor combinations, I use it a lot.
I made this pie for Andrea and her family and between our two families, we took it down.  Creamy, cool, a little minty and in an Oreo crust…I bet even the Irish would like this pie.
Happy Friday!
This recipe makes two (9 inch) pies.  You can cut the recipe in half to only make one.
Shopping List
2 pre-made Oreo pie crusts (found on the baking aisle by the graham cracker crusts)
1 (8 oz) container of Cool Whip, from the fridge not frozen
1 (8 oz) package of cream cheese, softened
1 (1/2 gallon) container of mint chocolate ice cream, softened just a bit
In a large mixing bowl, combine the Cool Whip and cream cheese with an electric mixer.  Do not over mix, just combine.  Add your ice cream to the mixture and combine with a spoon (not the electric mixer).  Once incorporated, divide the mixture between your two pie shells.
Cover and freeze at least 2 hours before slicing and serving.
If you’re looking for a little green in your life (or just a little goodness), this pie is the key.

    Yes!!! This sounds perfect for St. Patty's Day or even a summer BBQ. ?

    Looks fabulous and easy. Definitely going to have a go at this. Living in Australia I don't think we have Cool Whip though. What would be a good substitute for it Shay?

    If you don't have Cool Whip, just substitute with whipped cream!

    I am making this pie this week, but I need to make it the night before. Could I chill in the fridge overnight or would the ice cream melt? I was wondering if I should freeze just in case? Thanks for your help! I love all of your recipes!!!

      You have to freeze this until you're ready to serve or else it will melt everywhere. Enjoy!

    Do you have any advice on how to make this without an electric mixer? I don't have one, but I do have all of the ingredients.
    Thanks!

    If you don't have an electric mixer, you are just going to need to stir it with a spoon until it's combined. Enjoy!

    Thank you! I was hoping that this would be fine to do. Happy St. Patrick's Day!
