Sassy Sweets: Copycat Vanilla Frostys

Print Friendly and PDF
There's something about the summer that makes you feel, more alive.  I'm not sure that's the right wording but maybe you know what I mean by that.  I'm not working less hours but we're staying up later and waking up earlier, and somehow feeling ready to go every minute of the day.  Needless to say, there is a lot getting done in our house and at my office, too!

The one thing we've been avoiding lately is the car.  It's just too nice to spend a long time driving anywhere.  But without a car, we're back in our neighborhood grocery stores that are, let's just face it, totally overpriced because most people don't have a car and they have a captured audience.  As you could imagine, it makes some purchases very tough.  Like ice cream. I know, the building block of my existence, hasn't been in the freezer since before we left for Alaska. 

We've been craving soft serve ice cream as of late so no one was more excited than I was when I found a recipe for a copycat Wendy's Frosty!!!  They had chocolate frostys but I wondered if we could make vanilla (to appease that picky man who lives in the house).  We have been making them almost every night since (thank goodness for the two ice cream bases, right?  You take one out of the freezer and use it and stick the second one in there for tomorrow).  They're so easy, it's hard to resist!
Copycat Vanilla Frostys (adapted from Dine and Dish)
Serves:  2
1/4 cup Cool Whip
3 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk
1 cup skim milk**
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup sugar

In a small bowl, whisk Cool Whip and sweetened condensed milk until fully combined.  Pour into your ice cream maker, already on.  Then, in that same bowl, add skim milk, vanilla extract, and sugar.  Whisk until fully combined and add to the ice cream maker.  Let the ice cream maker run for 12-15 minutes, until the mixture is fully frozen and at soft-serve consistency.  Serve immediately!

**Substitute the skim milk, vanilla extract, and sugar for an equal amount of chocolate milk and make chocolate Frostys instead!

Until the next time my oven is on...
