I absolutely love stopping by Wendy’s and grabbing a Frosty but the calories in it are not on my list of “okay” food items. This Sugar Free Copycat Wendy’s Frosty uses a few ingredients I wouldn’t have expected would work but in the end it creates just the right chocolate flavor with the cold and creamy texture we are so used to seeing in a frosty. The best part? This recipe with 2 servings comes in well under 150 calories per serving. Just the right extra treat at the end of the day or a special afternoon pick me up!
SUGAR FREE COPYCAT WENDY’S FROSTY
1 Cup Crushed Ice
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1/2 Cup 1% or Skim Milk
1 Ripe Banana
2 Teaspoons PB2 With Chocolate
1 Tablespoon Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1 1/2 Tablespoon Splenda or Stevia (we prefer 0 calorie Splenda in this)
- Place crushed ice, milk and vanilla in blender and puree until frothy.
- Add in banana and pulse until smooth.
- Mix in cocoa, PB2 (powder not mixed) and sweetener with spoon (make sure to unplug blender for safety when doing this)
- Pulse until smooth.
This yummy treat is so quick and easy to make. The PB2 helps hide the banana flavor and enhances the chocolate. If you don’t mind a little bit more banana flavor you can easily leave that ingredient out and still have a wonderful cool and creamy chocolate treat. The Sugar Free Copycat Wendy’s Frosty will surely be a hit with everyone in your family and will soon become a classic treat you will serve alongside your favorite turkey burgers and baked home fries.
**PB2 is a great peanut butter substitute found in powdered form at most grocery stores in the peanut butter or gluten free/organic area. This can be mixed with water easily to form a traditional peanut butter texture or mixed into things like this treat or brownies in a powder form for added flavor. Averaging from $4-$5 per bottle it is often found at the best price in bulk on Amazon. At only 35 calories per serving it will fast become a staple in the low fat kitchen.
