You have to try my Wendy’s Copycat Paleo frosty recipe. When it comes down to eating out for dessert, a classic Wendy’s Frosty is pretty much the biggest weakness I used to have. I mean come on, they only cost $0.99 for the smallest size and taste so good.
Don’t get me started on the flavor combination of dipping the french fries in the frosty. (Some of you might think it sounds weird but it is quite delicious.) But a Wendy’s Frosty is definitely not healthy and is definitely not Paleo or Clean Eating. I have come up with a far better solution – a copycat recipe that encompasses the flavor of the Frosty without all the bad ingredients that come with it.
You can whip this recipe up in five to ten minutes, which is faster than most of you can drive to Wendy’s and buy one yourself. Heck, that’s faster than it takes me to load up my four children in the car and make them put on their seatbelts. Watch this video to see how quick and easy it is to whip up this Paleo frosty recipe:

You can use either almond or coconut milk with this frosty. The almond milk is milder. The coconut milk leaves a stronger coconut taste but makes the frosty creamier. If you’re really ambitious, you could mix the two and kind of get the best of both worlds. More or less honey can be used depending on how ripe your banana is. The riper the banana, the sweeter it is. If you don’t have raw cacao powder, the regular cocoa powder will do just fine.If you like it thicker, either use less milk or add more ice cubes. So the next time I have an urge to get a Wendy’s Frosty I will be making this instead!
Some other tips from readers are to freeze the bananas, which makes it colder, creamier and smoother. Tip from reader Kelly from my Paleo Facebook group – “I make this whenever I want a treat. However, after making it a few times with the banana, I started subbing it with Almond butter. I like it much better with Almond butter than banana…. Just a tip to try!”
