“Wendy’s” Chocolate Shake

faux wendy frosty

Eating clean challenges our ability to eat sweet without refined sugar and substances that, look like food but, include fillers and processed gunk.

I LOVE chocolate, sweet pies, and pastries more than most things in the world (that we eat)! Whilst surfing Pinterest I found a faux protein frosty shake that tasted DIVINE!

3/4 cup (6 ounces) almond milk or other unsweetened milk of your choice (coconut milk worked great)

3/4 to 1 cup of ice (crushed or cubed)

1 scoop vanilla protein powder (I used bodylogix whey protein vanilla bean flavor)

1 Tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder

1/3 to 1/2 medium banana (or sweetener of your choice: Agave, Stevia, dates)

Put all together in your blender and blend away! You will need a spoon – It’s THAT GOOD!!

Thank YOU, Janetha at mealsandmovesblog.com, you rocked my world!

      1. Did you use a food processor or blender? I have a VitaMix and it worked great. I just added more ice cubes to make it a little thinner, this way I was able to “drink” it without a spoon. I also used unsweetened almond/coconut milk. That stuff is super good! Give that a try. It really makes a good protein drink.


    1. I make a similar “dessert”. Maybe it’s not as healthy, but it certainly curbs my dessert cravings. 1 cup vanilla SWEETENED almond milk (90 calories), 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder (I use dark choc., 10 calories), one FROZEN banana (somewhere around 100 calories, depending on size). Delicious. The frozen banana is so much better than using ice, because it doesn’t dilute the drink. I use sweetened almond milk so I don’t have to add sweetener, but maybe you could use unsweetened + honey (never tried it). Also use a super ripe banana for best results.
      If you want to allow yourself a little splurge (On days that almond milk won’t satisfy my cravings and I NEED something milkshake-y): Add a tablespoon or two of half and half (40 calories for 2 tbs). For only 40 added calories, it becomes creamy and satisfying. It is my go-to when I feel the need to cheat on my diet. Sure, it’s a little cheat but a totally manageable one in terms of my diet.
      Also optional- a tablespoon or so of PB2 powder (powdered peanut butter). 2 tbs=45 calories. A pretty low-cal way to add flavor.


  1. Made it for my hubs. Used a NutriBullet to mix, added about 12 large ice cubes and used 2 T. Ground flax seed instead of protien powder. Also added 2 packs stevia. It was very thick and the banana taste was very slight. Will do this again.

  3. I cut sugar out of my diet a few months ago…. I JUST made this tonight and let my husband try a bite of mine – he HATED it. I LOVED it. it really tasted like a treat. I just used the almond milk (30 calories for 1 cup), some vanilla, coco powder and one whole banana. so mine was like 150 calories. to me, it tasted sweet… but I really think my taste has changed since cutting out sugar and white processed carbs.


    1. Mine wasn’t thick either so I added frozen banana to get more of that thick milkshake quality. I would recommend freezing coconut milk in cubes and adding that as well.


  4. I really liked it!! I also have been cutting sugar out and I felt like it was perfect! I used vanilla unsweetened almond milk and vanilla protein powder too. Delish!!


  5. Ugh, this was disgusting. I followed the directions exactly and it came out grainy and not at all sweet. I’m not sure where the picture on this site came from, but it is definitely not this! Wish I hadn’t wasted these ingredients.


  6. I followed the recipe except I omitted the banana and mind came out creamy and yummy. I think having a good blender is key. I used a Vitamix.


  7. I used a vitamix and it turned out just the right texture – like a thick frosty! I used 3/4 c. Unsweetened almond milk, 1 c. Crushed ice, 1 scoop GNC chocolate protein powder, and 3/4 of a frozen banana. Really, really good! And I am a southern girl who loves to eat GOOD southern food- this is not my normal pick for breakfast but I am trying to lose some weight so thought I would give this a try.
