Magic Chocolate Milk Shakes ( Wendy's Frosty Copycat )

READY IN: 5mins
Recipe by barefootmommawv

No Ice Cream needed for this delicious Wendy's Mock Frosty! When we're in need for something sweet and don't have ice cream I break out the blender for this treat! BTW this really is very similar to the Wendy's Frosty.

Initially, I was sceptical about this recipe but wanted to give it a go, as we don't keep icecream in the house. It absolutely worked and my hubby loved it. For my blender it worked beter if I fed the ice cubes in one by one with the motor running. I also used vegetable oil as corn oil isn't common in Australia. One hint: I reduced the oil down to 1 table spoon and the spray down to 3 seconds, and it worked fine. Do try this it really works - tasty and thick milk shake.

  • 1 12-2 cups ice water
  • 1 12 cups nonfat dry milk powder
  • 23 cup sugar
  • 14 cup unsweetened cocoa
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 18 ice cubes, as much as you can spare (1 1/2 trays)
  • 2 tablespoons corn oil
  • nonstick cooking spray, squirt this is for emulsification purposes (5 second)


  1. Place all of the ingredients into the blender, including the oil and the non-stick spray.
  2. Use less water for thicker milk shakes and more water for shakes that are easy on the blender motor. The blender should be about 3/4's full.

  4. Variations:.
  5. Add 1 tablespoon of instant coffee for a mocha shake.
