The girls and I have been trying out this recipe we found. It is suppose to be just like the Wendy’s Frosty. As of yet, we haven’t gotten it to work.
This was our second attempt. Notice the big chunks in there? That is ice. The first batch was more like a very watery shake, but it still tasted good. This one was a thicker watery shake. I used half the amount of ice water, the recipe called for. We also put this one in the freezer for several minutes and that helped a lot, but it wasn’t creamy.
I froze my chest after having this. Sir Husband says I get a chest freeze, because I have a lot to freeze. I have never gotten a brain freeze. Sir Husband says it is because you can’t freeze space. At least I can be in the Lord’s Army. According to Veggie Tales, if you get a brain freeze you can’t be in the Lord’s Army.
For the third attempt, I didn’t use any water, just extra ice. That made it thicker, but still it was not creamy. We will have to continue our experiment, until we get it right. 🙂
I like this recipe (below) from Hillbilly Housewife, because I have all the ingredients. Does anyone know why I am not getting the creamy smooth frosty, like I have seen on other blogs?
- 1-1/2 to 2 cups ice water
- 1-1/2 cups nonfat dry milk powder
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 to 1-1/2 trays of ice cubes, as much as you can spare
- 2 tablespoons corn oil plus a 5-second squirt of non-stick spray for emulsification purposes
Place all of the ingredients into the blender, including the oil and the non-stick spray. Use less water for thicker milk shakes and more water for shakes that are easy on your blender motor. The blender should be about 3/4’s full. Place the lid on. Process for a full 2 minutes. Pour into cups and serve. Makes 4 – 12oz servings.
There are other Wendy Frosty recipes out there, but I haven’t tried any.
