Grasshopper Parfait Recipe
NO grasshoppers required

This Grasshopper Parfait Recipe does not use the traditional creme de menthe or creme de cacao. It is alcohol free - so it is safe for children of all ages.

The minty flavour comes from mint extract and the green colour comes from food colouring.

The grasshopper has nothing to do with it.

I prefer easy and simple recipes so this one fits right in with only 6 ingredients and no cooking required. Just chasing a grasshopper around the kitchen (haha).

Grasshopper Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1 bag of Two-Bite Brownies
  • 1 cup Vanilla yogurt
  • 1 cup plus 4 generous dollops of Cool Whip
  • a few drops green food colouring
  • a few drops of mint extract
  • a few tsp. (10 ml) green sprinkles for garnish
  • 1 fresh mint sprig for garnish of each parfait
  • 1 grasshopper for each parfait (not)


1. Crumble 1 brownie into the bottom of each of 4 parfait glasses.

2. Mix the 1 cup of yogurt with 1 cup of Cool Whip. Add a few drops of green food colouring and few drops of mint extract. Stir well to combine.

3. Place 2 Tbsp (30 ml) of the green mixture over top of the crumbled brownies.

4. Next - crumble 3 brownies into each parfait glass, over top of the green mixture.

5. Scoop another 2 Tbsp (30 ml) over that.

6. Add a generous dollop of uncoloured Cool whip to the top of each Grasshopper parfait, a few green sugar sprinkles and a sprig of fresh mint leaves.

7.Refrigerate each parfait until serving time.

8. Ignore the grasshopper.

Recipe Yield: 4  Grasshopper parfaits
