Easy Copycat Wendy’s Frosty Recipe (Just 3 Ingredients!)
Love Wendy’s frosty?!
Not quite a milkshake, and yet not quite as thick as ice cream, this easy copycat chocolate frosty recipe is just like the signature frozen dairy dessert of Wendy’s fast food restaurants. It’s undeniably delicious!
My family loves this drive-thru treat all year round, but especially in the summer!
Yes, the DIY Wendy’s Frosty actually tastes legit!
And it requires just three easy ingredients! I’m actually super impressed with this idea because the result is a thick and creamy chocolate dessert that’s everything we love about an actual Wendy’s frosty.
Frozen chocolate milk is the key to success for this recipe.
Start by freezing a tray of chocolate milk ice cubes, because you’ll get that frozen dessert texture without watering down your frosty with regular ice. The whipped topping will add the creamy texture, and the sweetened condensed milk gives it a thickened texture and added sweetness.
Hip Tip: For the best possible texture, use a high powered blender like my Vitamix (or a food processor). Otherwise, you may have to add a little extra chocolate milk to blend the ice smooth.

Have an ice cream maker?
Pop Sugar shows you how to make a much larger batch of chocolate frosty using these same three ingredients. I tried it out using my Whynter 2.1 quart ice cream maker, and it was a definite hit with my family! This is a great way to make this frozen treat for a crowd!
