Paleo Wendy’s Frosty Recipe

This paleo (gluten-free, dairy-free), low-sugar, high-protein smoothie tastes just like a Frosty!

The second I tasted this smoothie I (literally) ran to my laptop so I could share the recipe with you guys ASAP.




This smoothie is packed with protein, fiber, and healthy fats to keep your blood sugars stable and satisfy a sugar craving in a healthy way.

Plus it’s perfect for anyone who has dietary restrictions, including a lactose intolerance!

First let’s take a look at the regular Wendy’s Frosty.

These are the nutrition facts for a medium Wendy’s Frosty:

470 calories and 65 grams of sugar!

Even worse, the ingredients:

Not only is the Frosty packed with sugar and corn syrup, it also contains a thickener called carrageenan which is linked to gut inflammation and inflammatory bowel disease, colon cancer, blood sugar imbalance, and food allergies.

Now let’s take a look at my paleo Frosty!

Much better.

And the ingredients?

No corn syrup, it contains all-natural ingredients, and it is thickened with xantham gum (which may actually have health benefits).

It technically contains cane sugar, but never fear. The cane sugar accounts for only 1 of the 9 grams of total sugar in the smoothie – the rest is natural sugars from the banana!

Smoothie highlights:

  • Dairy-free
  • Gluten-free
  • Grain-free
  • Paleo
  • All-natural ingredients
  • Only 1 gram of added sugar
  • Less than 10 grams of natural sugar from banana
  • 26 grams of protein!
  • 6 grams of fiber
  • 600 mg potassium

Now the part you’ve all been waiting for… the recipe!

  • cacao nibs
  • shredded coconut

  • vanilla extract
  • cinnamon
  • cold brew coffee (I recommend decreasing the almond milk if you choose to add this!)
