I think sometimes people fear adhering to a clean eating plan like Paleo means no more delicious food. Hopefully the recipes I’ve presented you so far (just look in the archives to find them) have already proven that notion wrong, but if not, allow me to further endorse the Paleo way of eating with this recipe. Everyone loves a chocolate Frosty, don’t they? Well, now you can have one without feeling guilty! This recipe is also gluten-free and vegan!

If you use a Nutri-Bullet, you should be able to pulse it until the ingredients are well combined, or just turn it on and let it go. Just don’t allow the mixture to blend for too long in something like a Nutri-Bullet, or it might result in something more akin to chocolate milk!
You can use either almond or coconut milk with this frosty. The almond milk is more mild. The coconut milk leaves a stronger coconut taste but makes the frosty creamier. More or less honey can be used depending on how ripe your banana is. The riper the banana, the sweeter it is. If you don’t have raw cacao powder, regular cocoa powder will do just fine. So the next time I have an urge to get a Wendy’s Frosty I will be making this instead!
Have you made a vanilla version of this recipe? I didn’t see one online, but I might have missed it.
