Faux Frosty

Today, I have something that could be filed in the “Things that Make You Go Hmmm,” file. (Are you singing yet?) image

It looks like a Wendy’s Frosty.

It tastes like a Wendy’s Frosty.

But, unlike a Wendy’s Frosty, it actually has some nutritional value.

I made this the other night on a whim. I bought a new blending system that I’m trying out that is like a Magic Bullet, but it’s from Cuisinart. Expect a full review on that soon – preliminary indication is that it’s awesome! It is holding up pretty well against my Ninja, which I love, so that is saying something.

Please excuse the photo below.  I didn’t know it was going to be good and was already several sips in when I decided to photograph!


Faux Frosty


  • 1 frozen banana, cut into 1” chunks (cut it up before you freeze it)
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa powder
  • 1/4-1/2 cup milk, depending on thickness desired


Add all ingredients to a blender and pulse to combine, then blend until the mixture is smooth.




Go make this now!!
