5-Ingredient Thin Mint Ice Cream Pie

Mint with chocolate is one of my favorite combinations ever! The richness of the chocolate and the coolness of the mint… honestly – YUM!

So it would come as no surprise for me to say that Thin Mints are one of my favorite Girl Scout cookies,  AND mint chocolate chip has always been my favorite ice cream flavor.  Therefore, I figured – why not bring the two together to create a Vegan Thin Mint Ice Cream Pie?! So that’s what happened.

This dessert is so fun and perfect and refreshingly delicious… I’m honestly speechless when I think about it. You have to try it – you’ll certainly feel the same way!

Didn’t stock up on Thin Mints? No prob, you can still buy them HERE.  Or you can use the thin Mint Oreos.

Need a gluten free option? Try THESE chocolate sandwich cookies.  You’ll still get plenty of mint flavor from the ice cream.

Why this Recipe Works:

  • Using only 5 ingredients, this dessert couldn’t be easier to make.
  • Because you’re making your own super easy version of mint ice cream, you can control how minty it is AND whether or not the ice cream is green, and – HOW green!
  • This pie is such a crowd-pleaser – all of your guests will love it. Trust me on this!

Are Thin Mints really vegan?

Yes! In fact, they’re the only Girl Scout Cookie variety guaranteed to be vegan each and every time. However, in some regions, ABC Bakers make some of the cookies which are all vegan, so be on the lookout for all of these varieties and options:

If your local Girl Scouts do not sell any of the above vegan varieties (such as the case where I live), then you can order them by clicking on the cookie titles above.

Can I use a different ice cream for the filling?

  • Although this pie definitely goes best with either this homemade version of mint ice cream or store-bought vegan mint ice cream, a plain vanilla, chocolate chip, or cookies n’ cream ice cream would all work well, too.

How To Make 5-Ingredient Thin Mint Ice Cream Pie:

1. Place Thin Mints or Mint Oreos in a food processor and add the melted non-dairy butter.

2. Blend these two ingredients in your food processor until the cookies are a crumbly. Stir to ensure there are no big cookie chunks left.

3. Pour this cookie and butter mixture into your pie pan and press on the sides and bottom of the pan to make your crust. Then, place it in the freezer while you whip up your ice cream filling.

4. Next, add your ice cream to a bowl. Make sure you leave your ice cream sitting out for about 30 minutes beforehand so that it’s nice and soft. Note: there’s a fine balance between soft and melted; you definitely don’t want completely melted ice cream as that will likely result in an icy pie. Next, mix in your green food coloring and mint extract and stir well.

5. Then, roughly chop eight Thin Mints and gently fold the pieces into your green, minty ice cream until just combined.

6. Remove your chilling crust from the freezer and pour your Thin Mint ice cream filling into the crust. Then smooth over with a spoon, getting rid of any air bubbles.

7. Finally, chop up two more Thin Mints and sprinkle the pieces on top. Place in your freezer for about 3 hours to chill or overnight, and then it’s ready to enjoy!

Top Tips for Making 5-Ingredient Vegan Thin Mint Ice Cream Pie:

  • To make a gluten free version of this pie, you can use gluten free chocolate sandwich cookies instead, and add mint extract before mashing up those cookies.
  • If you don’t have Thin Mints, you can use Oven Baked Fudge Mint Cookies, which you can buy HERE or Thin Mint Oreos, which you can buy HERE.
  • If you want to save those precious Thin Mints or simplify things even more, you can absolutely use a non-dairy mint chocolate chip ice cream for the filling.
  • If you don’t have a food processor, not to worry! Just put your cookies in a big plastic bag (make sure all of the air is out), leave a small hole in the seal, and mash up the cookies with a rolling pin or spoon. Then, pour your melted non-dairy butter right in the bag, mix it all up, and your crust ingredients are good to go!
  • The food coloring is completely optional, but it definitely adds to the fun of this recipe.
  • To take this pie to the next level, serve with a non-dairy whipped cream.  I like the Reddi Whip Coconut variety.
