Boston Love & Frosty Hack

One year ago today those of us in Boston and many around the world heard the news of the terrible and tragic bombing at the finish line of the historic Boston Marathon. I was out running errands that afternoon and immediately headed home once I heard the news and was glued to the TV for the rest of the evening hoping for an answer as to why this happened. Nothing.

Although the tragedy could not be explained, it took Boston all but a moment to pull together and react. I was so proud of my city and all of the people in it onΒ that day and that week and the weeks and months to follow. Boston Strong is an understatement. Its more like Boston WICKED Strong!

And now back to business…

I love finding recipes with ingredients that I have in my kitchen. Buying things just to use for one recipes kills meΒ my food budget. I came across this recipe on Pinterest this weekend and had to try it.

I was a huge Frosty lover in my fast-food eating days (high school)! My go-to order was a dollar menu extravaganza consisting of a 4-piece chicken nugget, small frie, small chili and a Frosty. I just did the calculation and that little meal of mine packed 920 calories!! OMG…thank god that phase of my life is over.

I still would love to have a Frosty now and then so when I found this gem I was excited to try it. Here is the recipe I used which is posted on SnackHacks.org.

frosty hack

– 3/4 cup almond milk (I used Silk Unsweetened Vanilla)
– 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
– 1-2 teaspoons cocoa powder
– 1/3 banana
– 15 ice cubes

I tried to blend this beast and it was a no go. My poor blender couldn’t handle all of the ice cubes. I added more almond milk and tried to crush the ice with the ice crusher function. Still a no go.

I got really frustrated and gave up, settling for an icy drink.

frosty hack fail

FAIL! Fail, fail fail. It didn’t look, feel or taste like a Frosty.

Looks like I will have to head to Wendy’s for a Frosty or find a brand new recipe and start from scratch. I had some high hopes for this one…oh well. Can’t win them all!

Hope you have a wonderful worst day of the week Tuesday!
