I’m back! After having photo shoots out in Colorado, Michigan and Chicago, it feels good to be home so I can catch up with Up Close & Tasty. In the midst of the high temps and gross humidity, I wanted to share this really easy Dairy-Free Frosty recipe that I discovered on the Healthy Recipe Ecstasy blog.
Remember Frosty’s from Wendy’s? They were a staple of my childhood. Whenever we’d go there, I’d order the same thing: a single burger and a frosty. As I’ve grown up, my tolerance for dairy has “lessened,” so when I saw a dairy-free version of the Wendy’s frosty, it quite literally made my day.
This recipe comes together super easily and I didn’t alter Michelle’s recipe at all because she perfected it! I used my Vitamix to blend the three ingredients you’ll need: So Delicious dairy free coconut milk vanilla ice cream, cocoa powder and almond milk. Think about it – in less than 5 minutes, you can go back to being a kid again. If dairy isn’t your thing, definitely give this recipe a try.
Be sure to stay tuned for extra posts next week when I’ll share more about our time out in Colorado, a restaurant shoot that took place in a basement and a Michigan brewery who’s celebrating their one year anniversary.
