The Dangerously Easy 3-Ingredient Copycat Frosty Recipe

2020/07/06

Before we got started, we took a peek at the ingredients list on Wendy's website for their classic chocolate Frosty. We knew that they — for sure — use more than three ingredients, but we wanted to try to be as authentic as possible with our shortened list. There were several familiar ingredients like milk, sugar, corn syrup, cream, cocoa, and natural vanilla flavor. We skipped over all the stabilizers and emulsifiers, like guar gum, sodium citrate, and vitamin A palmitate, knowing that we could find some of them in store-bought products.



In the end, we chose the three ingredients that would maximize the flavor bang for our buck: chocolate milk, Cool Whip, and sweetened condensed milk. The chocolate milk would knock out the milk and cocoa components while the Cool Whip contained additional milk, corn syrup, and guar gum — an ingredient that keeps ice crystals from forming in milk, making ice cream extra creamy. The sweetened condensed milk would bring it all together with a punch of sugary flavor.


You'll find a full list of the ingredients, including the step-by-step blending directions, at the end of this article.
