Cinnamon Bun Frosty
Posted on By Jennifer Moss
Wendy's has started to offer seasonal frosty flavors such as strawberry and peppermint. But how about a cinnamon bun flavor?
Skip the drive-thru line and instead, toss your ingredients into a blender - blend, pour and enjoy! This quick and easy treat will make both kids and adults jump with excitement.
A vanilla Wendy's frosty, according to the website, contains some of the following ingredients: Sugar, Powdered Milk, and Sunflower Creamer.
Needless to say, you can make a much better for you version with half the ingredients. This is a great sweet treat for any time of the year - but especially as the weather gets warmer. If you're looking for low calorie dessert alternatives, you're in the right place!
Wendys frostys are delicious, but sometimes all that sugar and dairy can make you feel guilty afterwards.
This tea-wist to the frosty has less than 200 calories per serving - and tastes just like the real thing with an added cinnamon bun flavor.
No ice cream or additional sugar is needed for this recipe, but you'd never be able to tell. The result is a creamy frosty full of sweet flavor.
Add 4 tbsp of Cinn-O-Bun loose-leaf tea into your infuser/tea bag.
Heat 24 oz of filtered water to 212 F. Pour over tea infuser/tea bag.
Let steep for 5 minutes. Once finished steeping, remove your infuser or tea bag.
While tea is still hot, add 1tbsp maple syrup and stir until dissolved.
Let tea come to room temperature before placing into the refrigerator to chill. **Note you will have extra tea left over - leftover concentrate can sit in the fridge for up to 1 week.
Pour 1/2 cup of ice, 1/2 cup of chilled Cinn-O-Bun tea and 1/2 cup of oat milk into the blender.
Add 4-5 tsp instant vanilla pudding powder, 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 3-4 heaping tbsp of frozen low-fat cool whip to blender.
Blend ingredients together on high until smooth.
Pour blended drink into your glass.
Top with a sprinkle of cinnamon powder. Grab a straw or spoon & enjoy!
