Kids and adults alike can agree that there’s nothing like a good old-fashioned chocolate frosty.
Because we try to stick to healthier versions of our family favorites, made with real food ingredients, we couldn’t resist recreating this childhood favorite. This vegan, gluten-free and paleo version of a Wendy’s Chocolate Frosty is made with just a few simple ingredients and is decidedly delicious.
Helpful tips when making this frosty:
- Cut and freeze your banana in thirds so your blender doesn’t have to work quite as hard to reach that smooth consistency of a traditional frosty.
- This recipe makes a frosty with that classic, slightly melted consistency (a bit thinner than a milkshake). If you prefer a thicker frosty, use slightly less almond milk. You may have to stop a few times to scoop the mixture off the bottom and sides of the blender to blend evenly.
- A high-powered blender is a MUST. For any smoothie, frosty, milkshake or blended drink, a regular blender doesn’t match the smooth, creamy consistency of a high-powered one. Our personal favorite is the NutriBullet Pro High-Speed Blender. We’ve been using this blender for years and have had fantastic results!
