Wendy's does not publish the official recipe for its Frosty dessert, but a simple imitation recipe for Wendy's Frosty requires 1/2 cup of milk, 4 teaspoons of Nesquik chocolate drink mix and 2 cups of vanilla ice cream. To prepare the copycat recipe, add the ingredients to a blender and blend on medium speed, stirring occasionally, until the mixture reaches the desired consistency. The recipe as listed serves one.
An alternative copycat recipe calls for mixing 1 quart of chocolate milk with a 14-ounce can of sweetened condensed milk and freezing it in an ice cream maker. It generally takes about 25 minutes in the ice cream maker to set to the consistency of a Frosty. This recipe makes up to 10 servings.
A low-fat Wendy's Frosty copycat recipe calls for using a 12-ounce container of low-fat or non-fat whipped topping, 1/4 cup of sweetened condensed milk, 2 teaspoons of unsweetened cocoa powder and 1 cup of low-fat chocolate milk. If desired, use chocolate-flavored almond milk or any other milk substitute. To complete the recipe, blend all the ingredients well, then pour into two glasses and freeze for approximately 30 to 60 minutes. When it is frozen to the desired consistency, stir well and serve.
