Wendy's Frosty Recipe
- Pour the milk into the blender.
- Add three cups of vanilla ice cream. Avoid using ice milk or any non-creamy vanilla ice cream as it will make the shake too watery.
- Measure out 1 teaspoon of vanilla and add it to the blender.
- Add the cocoa powder and the granulated sugar. Cover the blender with the lid.
- Blend gently on medium. Use a spatula to scrape down the sides as needed. Avoid over blending.
- Add whipped topping and blend on low until incorporated.
- Pour mixture into two tall glasses and serve immediately. Consider chilling the glass to make the frosty last longer without melting.
How to Operate the Frosty Machine at Wendy's
