Chocolate "Frosty"- Gluten, Dairy and Sugar-Free

I'm such a cold-natured girl to be eating this in the middle of December, but the boys were begging for "ice cream" after seeing my Daddy eating a Wendy's Frosty last weekend.

The Wendy's frosty is gluten-free, but not sugar-free, dairy-free or additive-free. Being a mother who does not want to disappoint her boys, I came up with this special recipe for my special boys.

I'm amazed at the taste of this. It is so much like the frosty that we had to share it with you. Even in December.

I use the Cuisinart Frozen Yogurt, Ice cream and Sorbet maker. It is so simple. The bowl stays in my freezer to be ready for these cravings at a moments notice.The machine does all the work and in 25 minutes it's ready to eat.

Chocolate "Frosty" - Gluten, Dairy and Sugar-Free

3 cups coconut milk (full fat)
2 Tablespoons arrowroot starch
1 Tablespoon 100% pure Vegetable Glycerine
3 Tablespoons agave nectar
7 drops of liquid stevia
1 1/2 Tablespoons raw, organic cocoa powder

Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl and mix well using a wire whisk.

Pour ingredients into a Frozen Yogurt, Ice Cream and Sorbet Maker.
Turn on according to the directions on your ice cream maker and sit back and anxiously await your treat. Mine takes 25 minutes.


  1. You always share such wonderful, healthy ideas and links.
    The frosty looks delicious.

  2. that's so cool! you're a really inventive cook...and mom!

  3. I'm feeling so blessed to meet such nice people. Thanks for your sweet comments.

  4. It looks just like a Wendy's frosty.

  5. HI, my daughter, who is six was just diagnosed with Celiac Disease two days ago. I am sort of feeling completely lost at this point. I am reading a lot of books and trying my best to do right by her. I happened to google about Wendy's frosty because she loves them. I stumbled upon your recipe and have a dumb question.....where do you find things like liquid stevia and vegetable glycerine. I have never heard of these....I live in NJ.

  6. Hi Anonymous - It is very overwhelming to find out your daughter has celiac disease. It will get easier and she will feel SO much better on the gluten-free diet. Your questions are very good so don't feel bad about asking them. I purchase liquid stevia online from Body Ecology Diet or from Fatigue to Fantastic. Also check your closest health food store for it. You can leave out the vegetable glycerin in this recipe. This ingredient is especially for those who adhere to the anti-candida diet, not necessary to be gluten-free. You may be able to use honey as a substitute for the stevia and glycerine. I have another "ice cream" recipe on my may be easier for you to make. It is called Cherry Coconut Ice Cream. I hope this helps you get started. If you have any more questions please ask them. Best wishes!

  7. Can you make this with just a regular blender? for I do not have that machine, but my son would love to have this!

    1. Lori - I wish I knew the answer to your question! I have not tried this recipe in a blender. Do you have vitamix blender? Sometimes they make ice cream in them.


I am made richer by your being here. Please leave us a comment.
