This Clean Eating Wendy’s copycat dairy-free Frosty recipe is really good. It tastes a lot like the frosty’s at Wendy’s but it’s dairy-free. Sweeeeeet! I had to write that. That’s why my little brother say when he likes something a lot. It’s also a pun on words, get it?
Who here doesn’t like Wendy’s Frostys? I used to, but now that I’m on the Clean Eating diet, that’s the last thing I should be eating. But I got to thinking that it would a good recipe to try to re-create because it tastes so good and it’s so easy to make. The one flaw in this recipe is that it uses the blender, which is noisy, so I can’t make it after I put my children to bed and keep it all to myself. (Evil laugh).
Oh well. This is a relatively healthy treat we like to eat as a family. It’s especially good for my son because we try to limit his dairy and he likes this almost as much as ice cream.
Here are some tips for making this Clean Eating dairy-free frosty recipe better:
- To make mine thicker, I often use just the creamy part of the can of coconut milk and not the liquid part at the bottom.
- Sometimes I have to add more ice cubes and/or milk. Don’t be afraid to experiment a little to get it exactly how you like it.
- If you don’t want to use the honey, it is possible if you have a very ripe banana, since they are naturally very sweet. You can always try it and if it’s not sweet enough, you can add more.
- Sometimes I like to freeze the banana and leave out the ice cubes. This makes it even creamier and thicker. The only thing is you have to remember ahead of time – or just put your over-ripe bananas in the freezer and save them for a few days until you’re ready to make a Frosty.
- Almond butter is really good added to this. Think peanut butter chocolate flavor. My fave!
- Half an avocado added to this makes it extra thick, creamy and even healthier. Talk about healthy fats! Between the coconut milk and the avocado, if you leave out the honey, this is a Keto dieter’s dream!
- You can totally use regular milk if you want. I haven’t tried it myself, but if you use whole milk, it would still be Clean Eating. I just try to limit my dairy consumption, especially uncooked dairy, because it can be hard to digest. However, I should totally try this with raw milk. Because raw milk is a whole other story and is good for you and full of healthy fats and enzymes that aren’t ruined by pasteurization.
Please let me know if you try this. I would love to know if you think this tastes like a Frosty and any variation you make to the recipe.
