Here’s a Healthy Wendy’s ‘Frosty’ Recipe You Can Chill With

How to make a wendy's frosty with paleo ingredients

Is it a drink or a dessert? A lazy soft serve or an ambitious milkshake? Apparently, the internet can’t make it’s mind up about a Wendy’s frosty.

Un-luckily, there’s no question about the fast food favorite’s less than savory ingredients: corn syrup, milk, sugar, whey, cocoa processed with alkali, carrageenan and artificial flavors, to name a few. So if you’re in the mood to skip the drive-thru (we swear it isn’t as hard as it sounds), here’s a healthier-for-you copycat Frosty you can whip in less than 3 minutes.

To get the creamy, ice cream-ish texture, you’ll be using coconut milk, coconut cream, and a banana as a subtly sweet, dairy-free alternative to milk. Raw cacao brings a deep chocolate flavor — don’t even get us started on the difference between real cacao vs cocoa — while maple syrup amps up the caramel flavor. Blend up everything until you get a smooth, thick consistency, then grab a spoon and dig in!

Tip: If you want your frosty to have a thicker consistency, pop it into the freezer for 15 minutes to thicken up.

Btw, my money’s on ambitious milkshake.
