I'm Back...Take 2 {With a Tasty Treat}

In August, I posted this recipe after not posting for a few months. I had every intention of getting back into the blog and posting regularly again. Life got in the way and the blog fell by the wayside once again. My mom mentioned last week that I should start up my blog again and several other people seemed to agree, so I decided they were right. I can't promise that I will post every single day, but I will do my best to be consistent.

Since I've been on my own and cooking for myself, I have discovered a couple of things. 1. There are not enough hours in the day to cook full meals every night. 2. Cooking just for myself is no where near as fun as cooking for other people. That being said, I am trying to find recipes that I can freeze most of the servings and use them later when I don't have time to cook. Expect to see some of these in the next few weeks.

Also, while I definitely have a sweet tooth, I'm going to try to post more healthy recipes for those of you who are trying to lose weight or are just wanting to be healthy. If there are specific things you would like to see on this blog, let me know and I will do my best!

Now for the good stuff - how many of you have enjoyed a Frosty from time to time? This chocolaty concoction is thicker than a milkshake but not thick enough to be ice cream. Some people dip their french fries in them. I have no idea what goes into making the restaurant version of a Frosty, but I do know how you can make your own at home! (And it's even "diet" friendly!)

I adjusted the ingredients a bit due to what I had on hand, and it was delicious! I seriously think it tasted like the real thing! My adjustments will be posted in purple next to the original ingredients. My one suggestion is that you put this in the freezer for a few minutes after it's blended to give it more of a Frosty texture and thickness.

You won't believe how rich, creamy, and delicious this is, but don't take my word for it! Leave me a comment to let me know how it turned out for you!

Mock Wendy's Frosty
from: recipes.sparkpeople.com
yield: 1-2 servings

Ingredients:
1 cup skim milk  {I used 1% milk.}
2 Tbsp. sugar-free, fat-free chocolate pudding mix {I used vanilla.}
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. unsweetened cocoa {I used 2 tsp. to make up for using vanilla pudding mix.}
1/2 Tbsp. Splenda {I used regular sugar.}
2 Tbsp. fat-free Cool Whip, optional {I used light.}
7 ice cubes

Directions:
1. Add everything to a blender except the Cool Whip and blend until mixed. It does seem to get thicker the longer you mix.
2. Pour into glass. If desired, put in freezer until it reaches desired consistency. Top with Cool Whip if desired.

{Yes, I need to replenish my flour and sugar.}
