My very first job when I was 16 was working at Wendy’s! I worked as a cashier, but you better believe that I had my fair share of Wendy’s food. I loved frosty’s far before I started working there, and I got to have plenty while I worked there. The classic chocolate Frosty is obviously amazing on it’s own, but when I stared seeing commercials for the new creamiscle frosty, I knew I had to jump on it!

This version is dairy-free and made with all real foods, but it has that creamy, dreamy texture we all know and love.

Why you’ll love this Wendy’s Copycat Creamsicle Frosty

  • Creamsicle Frosty made dairy free! The commercials for Wendy’s Creamsicle Frosty look amazing, but this is made dairy-free and with real food.
  • The perfect summer treat! With the warmer temps, this treat will be the perfect treat to cool off with.

The ingredients for Wendy’s Copycat Creamsicle Frosty

  • Frozen Banana. Bananas can be an overpowering flavor if there’s too much, so we’re only using half in this recipe. You still get the added creaminess and natural sweetener but far less of a strong flavor.
  • Frozen Peach. Frozen peaches have a pretty neutral flavor and help add great color to this frosty.
  • Japanese Sweet Potato. This is a secret for creamy smoothies! Simply peel and chop the sweet potato and bake it until soft but not crispy. Allow it to cool and freeze it for the perfect creamy texture in your smoothies or copycat Frosty’s.
  • Orange Segments.
  • Coconut Milk. You definitely want to go with a creamy coconut milk to get that Frosty texture. If you don’t tolerate coconut milk, oat milk would be the next best option.
  • Orange Juice and Vanilla Extract. 

All the ingredients ready to make a creamsicle frosty.

How to make Wendy’s Copycat Creamsicle Frosty

Tips & Tricks

  • Use full-fat coconut milk or another thick dairy-free milk. You definitely want to go with a creamy milk to get that Frosty texture. If you don’t tolerate coconut milk, oat milk would be the next best option.
  • Add ice cream for extra decadence. This recipe is meant to me naturally sweet and great for more balanced blood sugar. However, if really want something more decadent, add a scoop of dairy free ice cream for more of a dessert.

What’s the point of the Japanese sweet potato? Can you use regular sweet potato instead?

Japanese sweet potato is a white-fleshed sweet potato with purple skin. I often buy it at Natural Grocers or Whole Foods.

The Japanese sweet potato really adds an extra layer of creaminess to this recipe! Though you can try to sub regular orange sweet potato instead, keep in mind that Japanese sweet potato is more starchy and more of a neutral flavor so it does a better job at blending in with the flavors of the smoothie and making it extra thick!
