- To make a vanilla Milk Shake, omit the cocoa powder, reduce the sugar to 1/2 cup and add 1 Tablespoon (yes a full tablespoon) of vanilla flavoring. For a french vanilla milk shake crack in an egg too.
- *** Splenda can be used in this recipe. It is measure for measure.

I was just thinking to myself how deprived my kids are that I've never made them a chocolate shake because I don't keep ice cream in the house and I stumbled upon this recipe. All of them gave it 5 stars. Easy to make, ingredients I had in the house and only costs pennies to make. Will be making this on a regular basis from now on. Thank you for posting!
I made this for my son who LOVES Wendy's Vanilla Frosty and he thought it was very similar. Couldn't be easier. As recommended I cut back on the oil and forgot to add the spray but didn't notice any difference. I added less water but next time I think I will add even less. Thanks for a great recipe!
Could have fooled me that there wasn't any ice cream in it; it sure tasted like it. I never had Wendy's Frosty so I can't compare but I do know this tasted good. The only thing I didn't like was the taste of the cooking spray so next time I will use less of that. The nice thing about this recipe is that you can make it as thick or thin as you like.
