Chocolate Frosty

I discovered the recipe for this chocolate frosty a few months ago, and we have since enjoyed it several times over summer break.

On Pinterest, it has been likened to a Wendy’s frosty. It has been years since I have had a Wendy’s frosty, so I can’t speculate on how it compares in taste, but it certainly looks similar!

The texture is so light and airy, but because it is so protein-rich it is super filling. The mixture is also really thick and creamy…almost like the consistency of a malt.

I must admit, the first time I made this I used a cheap vanilla protein powder. I thought it was good, but the taste from the protein powder was distinct and there was just something off about it. I tried a different brand of protein powder the second time and instead of using a stevia packet for my sweetener, I used 1/2 medium frozen banana. The results…MUCH better!

Both of my kids loved this for a treat on hot days. C just had it this week as an after school snack!

I calculated the entire mixture as 21 NET CARBS. The entire mixture is about 4 cups, so I always give C half and my little guy and I share the other half.

Rich, creamy, chocolaty goodness…doesn’t get much better than that!
