Creamy. Cold. Chocolatey. And delicious. My kids can eat chocolate frosty any day of the week any time of year—they love them spring, summer, fall, and winter. And what about me? Yeah, even me (who’s not a chocolate lover) loves a chocolate Wendy’s Frosty®!
I should back up…my tastebuds love Chocolate Frosty, but the rest of my body goes a little haywire with all that sugar!
What’s in a Chocolate Frosty?
You’re probably over there saying, “Everything in moderation.” Right? But if you just grab a small chocolate Frosty, it packs in a whopping 47 grams of sugar. Yikes! That’s more carbs than I want in my diet in a whole day.
Check out the (not so amazing) ingredients in a Wendy’s Frosty:
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, Vitamin A Palmitate.
Never fear. If you want your family to be able to enjoy the taste of a chocolate Frosty without all that sugar, you can control the ingredients by making your own. This Keto Chocolate Frosty features just 6 simple, healthy, whole food ingredients. And you’re going to love it!
Collagen optional…but highly recommended!
One of the ingredients I highly recommend you add to this Keto Chocolate Frosty is chocolate collagen powder. Not only will it enhance the flavor profile of this recipe, but has some pretty rad health benefits too.
Why Add Collagen to your Keto Chocolate Frosty?
Collagen is a pretty unique superfood. We have more collagen in our bodies than any other protein…but as we get older we begin losing collagen at a much faster rate. In recent years I’ve been experimenting with creative ways to ramp up my collagen supplementation.
Health benefits of collagen:
- Improve skin health
- Promote younger, firmer skin
- Support joint health
- Improve gut function and digestion
- Keep excess inflammation in check
- Build and restore muscle
- Support a healthy metabolism
- Keep appetite in check
- Promote healthy brain function
- Promote deeper sleep
Not only is collagen awesome for you, the chocolate collagen powder from Perfect Keto is yuuuumy and a perfect addition to this (and other) receipes!
