Recipe for Grasshopper Drink

Summer is here. And with summer comes the time to keep a #drinkydrank in your hands. Oh, who am I kidding? I do this year round!

I like this recipe for Grasshopper drink because of the minty flavor. It reminds me of the Shamrock Shake (in a way).

This drink can also be a non-alcoholic drink (by substituting a few ingredients, lol) But if you’re feeling it, you could always add a little {more} alcohol to take your Grasshopper drink to the next level.  And if you’re a closet mint lover like me, then this recipe for Gluten Free Mint Chocolate Ice Cream Sandwiches ­ might just fancy your appetite!
