One of my husband’s favorite treats is a Wendy’s Frosty. We don’t eat there very often, but when we do, it’s a given that he will order a frosty. When I saw a recipe on Pinterest from for a copycat Wendy’s frosty recipe, I knew I had to give it a try. I tweaked it a bit because the original recipe called for an entire gallon of chocolate milk. That’s a lot of frosty, even for us! I cut it in half, but still used the entire can of sweetened condensed milk. Because more sweetened condensed milk is always a good thing. 🙂

It doesn’t get much easier than this. All you have to do is mix together three ingredients, then freeze for an instant frosty. And boy oh boy are they yummy! A perfect treat on a hot summer evening. Or afternoon. My boys tried to get me to let them have them for breakfast, but I did draw the line there. 🙂 If you are a lover of Wendy’s frosties, you have got to try this recipe!

Don’t churn it too long, you want to be able to suck it up with a straw, just like a regular Wendys frosty. 🙂

  4. I saw this posting on facebook and had to come get the recipe ! It looks SO good!! I dont have an ice cream maker…is there anyway to make it without one?

    • I would say pour the mixture into plastic or serving cups and throw it in the freezer…

    • You could try pouring the mixture in a large bowl in the freezer and stirring it every 30 minutes or so. If you try it, let me know how it turns out. 🙂

    • Maybe put the mix in a gallon size ziploc & then have another ziploc with ice & the salt. On the outside like you would make ice cream with plastic bags 🙂

  5. I saw one on Pinterest too – but it called for almond milk and protein powder. Interesting! We eat that version all the time. 🙂 Visiting from Cast Party Wednesday.
