Copycat Frosty…Healthified!

Teenagers generally do not have a reputation for eating the greatest. I was no different. One of my favorite things to eat when I was in high school was a Wendy’s Frosty that I dipped French fries in. Weird, but delicious.

Well, as an adult now with food intolerances and allergies, fast food French fries and dairy based, sugar filled Frosty treats are clearly not an option.

This morning, I was pleasantly surprised at how closely my smoothie resembled the taste and texture of my favorite Frosty treat from my teen years yet without the sugar and dairy. It uses my new-found love – Orgain Organic plant based protein powder that I buy at Costco. I love the flavor, and it blends nicely into smoothies. It also uses frozen bananas…the perfect remedy for utilizing ripe bananas.

Copycat Frosty Smoothie

1 cup non-dairy milk (I like Silk Unsweetened Almond Milk)

1 medium frozen banana

2 scoops Orgain chocolate fudge protein powder

2 ice cubes

Blend and enjoy! Makes one large smoothie or two smaller smoothies.

It was so yummy that I found myself thinking about it all day at work. When I came home, I ate a light supper so that I could make another smoothie after dinner. It was kid approved by my 11-year-old son. Even my husband decided it was pretty tasty!

Kid approved!

This is one smoothie I will definitely make again!
