Tripboba.com - If you love eating at Wendy’s, you might be familiar enough with their delicious Frosty. In fact, it’s the signature of the frozen dairy dessert of Wendy's, introduced since the restaurant first opened.

This legacy is sure loved by all, and while you can always buy it at Wendy’s, sometimes perhaps the thought of making your own Frost strikes you hard.

Can you make Frosty at home and enjoy your own DIY? Well, Frosty recipe is actually nothing difficult, so here are some recipes you can try at home!

1. What you need to know about Wendy’s Frosty recipe

When it comes to the ingredients, so far Wendy's website lists milk, sugar, corn syrup, cream, whey, nonfat dry milk, cocoa (processed with alkali), guar gum, mono and diglycerides, cellulose gum, natural vanilla flavor, carrageenan, calcium sulfate, sodium citrate, dextrose, and vitamin A palmitate. 

But, the "natural vanilla flavor" is the key to this ingredients list. The addition of vanilla to the chocolate Frosty results in the alteration of the flavor to be more of a malt-like taste.

So, before you get down to learning the recipe, you need to know how things work behind the scene! This will help you to make an even tastier Frosty on your own!

Now, let’s learn Wendy’s Frosty recipe! The Frosty's original light chocolate flavor was initially the only flavor offered, so let’s begin from this legacy, first of all.

Prepare the following ingredients, then proceed to the instructions given. No worries—it’s all easy!


  • 4 cups vanilla ice cream (softened slightly)
  • 1 cup milk (I usually use whole)
  • 8-9 tsp Nesquik powder


  1. Add all ingredients to the blender. Cover and blend until smooth and creamy.
  2. You may want to scrape the sides of the blender once, then start to blend again.
  3. Once done, pour into serving glasses and serve with a straw or spoon.

Pro tip: While you can try Wendy's Frosty recipe without an ice cream maker, it’s advised to make this in a home ice cream maker to get the same thick and creamy consistency as the real thing!

Sure, the one made in a blender tastes okay, but nothing beats the authenticity of the Frosty like the one you make yourself but with an ice cream maker!
