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 in 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 on making this Clean Eating 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.
Please let me know if you try this. I would love to know if you think this tastes like a Frosty.
