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 seat belts.

You can use either almond or coconut milk with this frosty. The almond milk is more mild. 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, 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!”

BlendersYears ago I went through three blenders in a year. It was getting expensive and I was frustrated that they weren't very powerful. About that time, Costco started selling Vitamix blenders and doing demos. I splurged and bought one. It's been very worth the money. For one thing, it's been at least five years and it's going strong and it makes the best smoothies. They are so smooth. I've seen them at a lot of restaurants and on TV cooking shows all the time.
