Mock Wendy’s Frosty: A Skinnier Version

 

If I had to pick a favorite fast food restaurant, it would have to be Wendy’s.  When I was pregnant with my son, I had a regular craving for their Spicy Chicken Sandwiches.  But I would not stop there when ordering because who can resist one of Wendy’s delectable Frosty’s?  I am sure when most people think of the Wendy’s restaurant, they think of the Frosty’s.  However, I do not often visit these fast food restaurants because those amount of calories is just not in my food budget.  I mean sure it tastes delicious but I do not want my thighs paying for it for months.  So, I have to replace it with a skinnier version.

I saw this Skinnier Wendys Frosty recipe on a fitness message board and thought I would give it a try.  I enjoyed it VERY much.  I thought the taste was great but I would like to work on getting it a “creamier” consistency.  If you have any suggestions I would love to hear it!

    I would try adding another tablespoon of pudding mix. That should help thicken it and make it creamier.

    I think adding some frozen banana chunks would increase the creamy factor- along with reducing the ice cubes to 4 or so. I am definitely going to try this!

    Oh, that is a great idea Marisa! I am going to try that also. I would not increase the pudding mix because I do not need it "thicker" but just a bit creamier. Crossing my fingers on the frozen bananas!

    OH, I'm so glad that you posted this. I've been wanting to make homemade Frosty's but was afraid that if they turned out well, I'd defeat my diet, big time. This recipe sounds perfect!
