To make your own Frozen Grasshopper Shooters, you will need: 3 ounces green crème de menthe, 2 ounces clear crème de cacao, about 8 ice cubes, and 2 nice sized scoops of vanilla ice cream. If you’d like, and I highly recommend it, you can top each one with some whipped cream and a sprinkling of Andes crème de menthe baking chips. I made my own whipped cream but store-bought would work just as well (and then you wouldn’t have to pipe it on to make it look “fancy”).

As I’ve mentioned several times before, I AM IN LOVE WITH MY MAGIC BULLET! So, obviously, I used it to make these shooters. Only two parts to wash, I’d choose this thing over a full-sized blender ANY DAY! And I did. As soon as I received my magic bullet years ago, I donated my blender and I haven’t missed it one bit.

Back to the recipe. Place the crème de menthe and cacao, ice cubes, and vanilla ice cream in your blending tool of choice and blend until smooth. Pour into shooters and top with whipped cream and baking bits, if you desire. Super easy and so delish, enjoy!
