Ryan’s Recipe Test – The Homemade Frosty [VIDEO]

After testing several life hacks shared around the internet, I’ve decided to expand into the world of copycat recipes. Up first, the idea that you can make the insanely popular Frosty with only three common ingredients found at your favorite grocery store.

I don’t care if it’s 100-degrees, or 20-below outside, a Frosty always hits the spot when my sweet tooth fires up. Not quite a shake, and not quite soft serve ice cream, the Frosty is somehow finds the perfect balance between the two. But can it be replicated from the comfort of your own kitchen.

According to the website, One Good Thing by Jillee, it can by using store-bought chocolate milk, sweetened condensed milk, and whipped dairy topping. As someone who doesn’t believe a thing the internet tells me until I try it for myself, I decided to put this recipe to the test*.

*Due to the smaller size of my ice cream maker, I had to cut the recipe in half.

Cost-wise, the total was pretty good considering we were able to get a little more than six – eight ounce cups out of one batch. Here’s how it broke down going with all store-brand ingredients:

  • 1/2 Gallon of Chocolate Milk = $1.99
  • 14 ounce can of Sweetened Condensed Milk = $1.39
  • Whipped Dairy Topping = $0.89

Total Cost (plus 7% sales tax) = $4.57

With that said, is it worth it? Probably not. The cost per eight ounce cup comes out to 76-cents, so that’s pretty good. However, when you factor in the time of going to the grocery store, breaking out the ice cream maker (if you even have one), mixing the ingredients, then cleaning the dishes afterward, you’re better off spending a dollar on the real thing.
