Skinny Strawberry Frosty

I came up with the recipe for Skinny Strawberry Frosty completely by accident. Don’t ya just love when that happens?

I was actually making strawberry smoothies. The frozen strawberries were dumped into the blender and I opened the fridge to grab the almond milk and realized that there was only a little bit in the carton. What to do? What to do?

As I was scanning the contents of the fridge, my eyes rested on a bottle of Coffee Mate sugar free french vanilla creamer (the liquid kind).  I had a light bulb moment. It’s liquid. It’s sugar free. It’ll work!

The finished product turned out to be more like a frosty than a smoothie (meaning it has to be eaten with a spoon). I love it! So, instead of strawberry smoothies, I usually make my new and improved Skinny Strawberry Frosty. And now, you can, too!

Helpful Hint:  This recipe calls for frozen whole strawberries (no sugar added).

To make a smoothie, add more almond milk.  For an even thicker consistency, add more creamer and less almond milk.  And did I mention that it’s very low in calories?  The brand of almond milk, etc. that I use comes in under 150 calories.  Yum!

  1. This looks wonderful! Do you have any idea of the calorie count for it?

    • The almond milk I use is 30 calories for a cup and the strawberries are 50 for one cup. I’m not at home right now, but I think the coffee mate is about 15 calories per tsp. So it’s under 150. I should have added the calorie count. 🙂

  2. I wish I had frozen strawberries so I could make this for breakfast. 🙂

  3. sounds like you stumbled upon something pretty awesome there!

  4. Yummm!!! My husband loves Strawberry. I’m definitely showing him this recipe later.

  5. My youngest loves frostys and he loves strawberries – I’ll have to give this one a try! Glad for your “accident”!

  6. Interesting creamer ingredient! Never would have thought.. Of course my creamer in my house has tons of sugar….Gotta cover up that coffee taste.

  7. Oh wow, now this looks really good! I’ll take two please!

  8. I am bookmarking this one!

  9. I am off to the kitchen to make these. I have all the ingredients. Yeah.

  10. Looks good! I like anything strawberry!

  11. Sounds really good to me! Pinning so I can whip that up one day soon:-)

  12. This looks way better than my green smoothie.

  13. Now, that is a good idea, Alli! LOL It IS funny when you start substituting things – my family still swears that the casserole I made a couple Thanksgivings ago was the best one ever – and I had just thrown stuff together when I ran out of the original ingredients and the store was closed! LOL Now I can’t re-create it!

  14. Wow Allie. I love this recipe and perfect too. Just in time for strawberry picking with the kids and making mama a special treat

  15. Love that you used almond milk. I love adding it to my smoothies!

  16. My husband and I would love this. I the Wendy’s Frosty and haven’t had one in years. I know what I’ll order as soon as I get to the states.

  17. What a name Skinny Strawberry Frosty :). Looks yummy! Can’t wait till our Strawberry ripen!

  19. What a great drink on those hot summer days like today! Thanks 🙂

  20. Skinny !!!!! Yes! Now, I am on the Atkins diet but I think this works for Phase 2 no problemo. PINNED IT on TWO boards so I am sure not to lose track of it.
