~ Diet Grasshopper ~

Cassie *


My sister and I made this drink thousands of times in our teen diet years. Sometimes for an added treat we would drizzle with some chocolate. The original recipe came from a local lady that added it to a fundraising book we sold to raise money for our drill team. We added our own sweeteners as the recipe didn't call for any. It needed some sweetness and that did the trick.
