Copy-Cat Wendy's Frosty

Copycat Wendy's Frosty recipe
Copy-Cat Wendy's Frosty
I love Wendy's frosties.  I especially like them with french fries.  The combination of sweet and salty, hot and cold is just so good!  Unfortunately, they're really bad for you with lots of sugar and empty calories.  Now you can have a Wendy's frosty whenever you want and without the guilt!  I found this recipe on Pinterest and it's from Meals & Moves.  It's healthy, delicious, and really tastes like the real thing!

The recipe calls for xanthan gum and guar gum.  I honesty don't know what that stuff is and I wasn't about to spend  a lot of time looking for it at the store.  I did have the soy protein powder because I like to make healthy chocolate milkshakes.  I crush some ice cubes in a blender then add a cup of milk, a banana, and a scoop of chocolate soy powder.  Blend it all together in the blender and it's really good.  It's not quite a Wendy's chocolate frosty because you can really taste the banana, but it's still pretty good.

Here's what you need for Wendy's frosty recipe:

Ingredients
15 ice cubes
3/4 cup (6 oz.) almond milk
1 scoop of chocolate soy protein powder

Directions
Use the blender to crush the ice.
Add the soy milk and protein powder.
Mix until smooth (about a minute).  If the frosty is too thick, add a little bit more soy milk until it's the right consistency.

  8. Me too!!!! A frosty and fries, amazing. While I am not sure about xanthan gum, guar gum is a natural thicker, you can get at Mountain Rose Herbs. I have not used yet, but hope to in the future when my huckleberries come in to make jelly.

    Thanks for linking up at Tuesdays With a Twist, I look forward to reading more blogs from you.

  22. I love Frosties too. When I was in college, my friends and I would go to Wendy's late at night because they were open 'til midnight. All-nighters would be accompanied by a Frosty.:) Thanks so much for linking up to Inspire Me Wednesday!

  24. Yum! Frosty's are my favorite! I learned in college that the best thing ever is to dip your fries in your Frosty. I thought the idea was gross at first, but once I tried it I realized it was delicious and I've been doing it ever since! In case you didn't see it earlier, I featured this today on my blog, so stop by and grab a Featured button if you don't already have one! http://practicallyfunctional.net/2013/04/9-creative-ideas/

  42. A Frosty was our treat of choice when I was a kid... I like your healthy spin on it. I was surprised to see that I already make a similar shake like this on busy days, though I use different protein mixes than the one you picture. You're right; not quite a Frosty...but they feel (and taste) really good. Thanks for sharing your cool idea. Lynaea @ EveryDayBloom.com
