The ingredients for a real Frosty include milk, sugar, corn syrup, cream, whey, non fat milk, cocoa (processed with alkali) guar gum, mono and diglycerides, cellulose gum, carrageenan, calcium sulfate, disodium phosphate, artificial flavor, vitamin a palmitate.
How they turn all of those Wendy's Frosty ingredients into the most delicious thick milkshake is a trade secret which is why we need to make our own yummy low calorie desserts.
The Frosty is considered a frozen dairy dessert. Introduced in 1969 when the first restaurant opened. The original "light chocolate" flavor (actually a combination of chocolate and vanilla) was initially the only flavor offered.
Slightly softer than regular soft-serve ice cream like you'd get at a place like Dairy Queen. A milkshake can be drank through a straw immediately after serving. A Frosty is normally too thick or too frozen to eat with a straw right away, and you need a spoon until it reaches that softer, smoother consistency.
How can I make a Homemade Original Wendy's Frosty?
If you want to try and make your own version of a Wendy's Smoothie, Wendy's Milkshake or Wendy's Frosty just take one quart of your favorite chocolate milk and one 14 ounce can of sweetened condensed milk and blend.
If you want a Vanilla Frosty use one quart of Vanilla Almond Milk in place of the chocolate milk.
