One of the things about transitioning to a vegan lifestyle, is having to not only get rid of the things that are easy to walk away from - for me that is meat, eggs, cheese, etc. - But, also being strong enough to walk away from the not-so-easy things as well. For me, one of those things are Wendy's Frosty's...
But, fear not! I have come to save the day! With the ridiculously hot and humid days upon us, this recipe comes just in time. Not only is it super easy to make, but, it tastes almost identical to the original version.. SCORE!
In the words of some, this vegan frosty is so good, "It will make you slap your mama!" However, we are not responsible for the consequences that may come as a result of that.
If you have at least 15 minutes of will power, then you are in for a tasty treat. One that you can serve to your family or simply enjoy for yourself.
