Grasshopper Pie

You only need six ingredients to whip up this fluffy and refreshing treat. I made this for Monday's Yoga Babe night.

2 pkgs (3 oz each) cream cheese, softened
1 can ( 14 oz) sweetened condensed milk
15 drops green food coloring
24 chocolate-covered mint cookies, divided
2 cups whipped topping
1 chocolate crumb crust (9 inches)

In a large mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese until fluffy. Gradually beat in milk until smooth. Beat in the food coloring. Coarsely crush 16 cookies; stir into the cream cheese mixture. Fold in whipped topping. Spoon into the crust. Cover and freeze overnight. Remove from the freezer 15 minutes before serving. Garnish with remaining cookies.
