Homemade Wendy's Frosty

This week might just destroy me. 

Have you ever committed to a ton of things in advance, and then realize all at once that every one of those things are all in the same week?

I was complaining about all of this on the way to Ryan's parents house this weekend, and he said something that kind of caught me off guard:

He said: why don't you just enjoy it?

Enjoy it? I can't even keep my sanity in check and I'm supposed to enjoy it? 

Then I really thought about it. All these things I have committed to this week are actually things I like doing. Even if they're all piled up in the same week, they're all things I really look forward to. 

So I think I'm going to take it one day at a time, and enjoy my week of crazy.

Oh yes, this recipe. 

Speaking of things I've enjoyed - 100% win right here. 

It's three ingredients, for crying-out-loud, but tastes just like the real thing.

The Frosty is a must when ordering anything from Wendy's. Even if you order it in the kid's size and finish it in three spoonfuls, it's still a must. It's creamy, loaded with chocolate goodness, and downright perfect when paired with a salt french fry (yep, I'm one of those people). So why not make it at home?

Now you can. 


Homemade Wendy's Frosty
makes about a gallon

one gallon of chocolate milk (I went with the TruMoo whatever-the-heck-it-was stuff)
1 container (16oz) Whipped Cream (we went with the fat free selection)
14oz Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk (fat free, again, as if it freaking matters)
*optional: splash of milk

1. In a pitcher, combine all ingredients, and stir with a whisk until thoroughly combined. 
2. Pour into your ice-cream maker and follow directions according to the manufacturers instructions (hopefully they include you freezing the dang stuff).  
3. Remove from freezer, scoop into a blender, add a splash of milk. Blend until frothy heaven meets your face.

  1. Booo!! It took my comment. Love this!

  2. I get the same way about too many things at once, too. And my husband will remind me that A) I enjoy being busy (but apparently I can't handle being overwhelmed!) and B) its a full happy life :), but I get stressed when I commit to too much as well. This frosty looks soooo good!


Thank you for commenting, I love hearing from you!
