A thick icy cold milkshake with just the right blend of chocolate and coffee flavors. We found it surprisingly similar to a Wendy's Frosty. Plan to freeze a few coffee ice cubes in advance. I created this diabetic-friendly recipe with "light" and "sugar-free" ingredients for RSC #12. The shake can also be made using "regular" versions of the ingredients. We like it best that way!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pour coffee into an ice cube tray and freeze about 6-7 coffee ice cubes.
  2. Stir Splenda into milk until dissolved, then combine all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth.
  3. Pour into two chilled glasses and top with whipped cream then a drizzle of chocolate syrup - Yummy!

This was a great shake and I really liked the coffee ice cube idea. The only problem I had with them was that it took a while to blend them up. I didn't have any regular chocolate syrup so I used dark chocolate which tasted delicious as well. Thanks for this easy and pretty quick recipe!

Awesome shake! I made it just as stated. Loved the flavor, the mocha flavor was delicious.

This was ok but did not make me think if a Frosty. I thought this had an aftertaste that was not very pleasant. It did make a thickish shake with a coffee chocolate taste that might be better without the sugar free products? Maybe I am just a purist. At any rate, good luck in the contest!
